“Great Authentic Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

This restaurant has a real flare of Italy. The food is tasty and the service is great. My only complaint is that the serving size of the shrimp has become smaller. The Scampi is delicious and salad and bread are grand.

“A very good Anniversary Dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We were in the area and celebrating our 45th anniversary. The reviews for Antica Roma Caffe looked very good, so we made reservations for a Saturday night. One of the "specials" was Butternut Squash Ravioli. It was sooooo good. My husband ordered the Veal Parmesan and said his was very good, also. The owners were there, and I take it that he cooks the delicious main dishes and she bakes the scrumptious bakery items. She brought us a sample of two of the gluten-free cookies and they were so good! We brought desserts back to our vacation house for tasting tomorrow. The signage in the back of the room says they have been there 2 years. Looks like they are on track for many more years! Glad we read the reviews and went there for dinner!

“Great place for a relaxing & inexpensive lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Very european atmosphere in the mountains. I never expected such a great find in the small town of Murphy NC. I had a pannini with mozzarella chesse, lettuce & tomatoes. The incredients were fresh and the bread tasted freshly made. Try the crema caralana for dessert. It's a custard. The place is spotless and the service outstanding.

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

Could there really be an incredible, authentic Italian restaurant in Murphy, NC? Yes! We were blown away by each course. We had dinner on a Saturday night and the place was full. The bruschetta, salad, and main course were excellent & you must have dessert! Service was attentive and friendly. We will make the trip to eat here again!
