Simple Italian food at its best in a friendly, family run, no frills establishment. This is the place to eat in Leicester for tasty, well cooked dishes. For the price you can't go wrong. If it appears busy there is always room upstairs. Eat here you won't be disappointed.

Reasonably priced lunch offers paired with high quality food makes the place a great visit. Serves a great coffee and polite staff. To criticise I'd advise against the Pizza's as the base they use isn't great

While out yesterday we wanted a cheap, quick lunch so decided to try Cafe Roma. Upon entering we noted how busy the place was. There's extra space upstairs too. The best atmosphere is downstairs. The cafe is clean and full of delicious smells. You order at the counter and can run a tab if you like. The staff are friendly... More
