I lived in Switzerland for 10 years, and our experience at Roma came the closest to a true Italian pizzeria, and exceeded our expectations on every level. From the moment you walk into this restaurant, you can tell that they have put a lot of effort into making you feel like you are in Italy, from the tiles on the floor to the cozy inner courtyard feel. The real, Italian pizza oven lets you know immediately that they have not cut any corners.

The beef carpaccio salad with arugula and shaved Parmesan cheese and grapefruit was delicious, really more air dried beef than true carpaccio, but all the more tasty. We had the Quattro Stagioni and spicy salami pizzas and they were awesome. Topped off with some panna cotta and poached pear, and a glass of their own, house made lemoncello as a digestive. The house red wine was served in beautiful, large red wine glasses which enhanced the experience. This is an oasis of excellent European style dining in the middle of a Rocky Mountain college town - not to be missed!

There were 6 of us including 2 kids and we were all very happy with our meals. I had a pizza with artichoke hearts, mushrooms, olives and prosciutto. It was SO yummy and the presentation was beautiful. It was huge too, so I have half left over for lunch! Everyone else had pasta dishes. The prices are very fair for what you get...like seafood pasta dishes for $13. The waiter suggested a wine for us that we really enjoyed. They brought out an incredibly yummy crusty bread from Udi's before the meal with an olive oil and tomato dipping sauce that was SO good. The hostess was very sweet and helpful. Love the décor there too.

We stopped at Antica Roma for lunch and regretted it almost immediatly. Waited at the hostess stand to be seated the place was not busy maybe 2other tables. Then we recieved the poorest excuse for service I have ever seen all he did was bring out the food. He ket our drinks go empty even after we had asked for refills. He never came back to check how the food was or if we needed anything else. My pasta tasted like it may have been freshly made a week ago. The pizza tasted like cardboard and was gummy in the middle. Keep walking if you visit Pearl Street and are looking for good food.

Nice location on Pearl, friendly staff, and a classic Italian American menu. Our favorites were linguine scoglio, as well as some kind of ricotta roll. The wine list was ok but somewhat limited

Food was good, as was the wine list. I thought for what it was (mostly pasta), it was too expensive.
