“LOVE IT!!!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Cafe Roma is a great upscale restaurant that is owned and operated by Shannon Ritzhaupt who is a local chef.

I love to go for lunch because you get a great meal at a great price. I go for the half meatball sub with the half roma salad. YUMMMMMM!!!! The salad has a dressing on it that when combined with the creamy goat cheese and golden raisins just hits the spot every single time.

They have extensive wine offerings as well, although I rarely get them because I am there for lunch instead of dinner.

You will not be disappointed in this local eatery. The consistency is really exceptional for a local establishment. Cafe Roma has truly become a fixture in the community, and I hope the Ritzhaupt family has continued success for many years to come!

“Consistently Good!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This was our 4th time visiting Café Roma. As usual, the food was great and the service excellent. Two of our party had the amberjack special and said it was excellent. My wife had the scallops, which were coked perfectly. The accompanying sauce and side was also well prepared. I had a chicken dish was cooked perfectly. The breast was very moist and tender. The service was great and always is. Very efficient, but not obtrusive. For a small town like Cleveland, this place is a gem!
