“When in Rome a hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Unassuming but a real gem to find. We had a wonderful meal here replete with a complimentary "puff" from the chef to start the meal. The uzo flamed sheep cheese started the evening off deliciously. Greek salad was adequate. My wife's Osso Bucco was very good as was the gorgonzola sauced gnocchi. Desserts were very nice also including the lemon blueberry gelato. Wine selections were nicely spread out over a reasonable to expensive price range. Wonderfully attentive waitress with a great sense of humor.

“Unpleasant and distasteful.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

From the trash scattered along the front outside the restaurant to the rude and insulting owner, When in Rome is almost a waste of good restaurant space. The food varies from night to night, as does the service. The owner always looks like it's the last place he wants to be. Sit at the bar, if they don't put you out as an inconvience, and see for yourself. He is not only disrepspectful to the employees, but has a very two-faced attitude about the customers. The husband and wife have been seen arguing on more than one occasion. And they don't have their Health Dept. grade displayed for the public. Twice I've ordered pizza to go only to recieve a soggy mess with cardboard textured crust and an obviously too dark on the bottom. Overall, I found my few experiences there to be unpleasant and rather distasteful.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

When in ROME is the best pizza in Kalispell... Quality is exceptional! Pepperoni and sausage are both thick and sliced... not typical pre packaged looking meat!

“Mmmmm Italiano!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

I visited When in Rome for the first time tonight. They weren't very busy and I was acknowledged, seated and served immediately by a very attentive waiter. He was VERY knowledgeable about the menu, including the specials, one of which was lobster ravioli. YUM. The bread was very tasty, as well, and dessert, pot du creme (or something like that, Italian custard with fresh strawberries) was deeeelish. The wine wasn't my fave but not their fault. Overall, a great meal, a great waiter and a great experience. Will definitely return.

“A little piece of Italy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Wonderful atmosphere with great food! The Bruschetta and Pizza was fabulous. The first time we went we didn't have a reservation but we were seated on a busy Friday night. It took a long time to be acknowledged by the staff, but the food was well worth the wait.
