The escarole and beans were a great appetizer as were the zucchini flowers. Dinner was very good. We had the cod, the chicken Milano, eggplant and fettuccine Alfredo. Staff was courteous but the room was small. If noise makes a difference to you and it doesn't to everyone then bring earplugs. For us, it was enough to make us leave... More

Recently went for my fiancées birthday dinner. His favorite meal is veal parmigiana. First time for him at Roma and it did not disappoint! I always enjoy the fresh and housemate cavatelli (yum). We called too last minute to get a reservation but we're lucky enough to get seats at the bar. The bartender took care of us. The food... More

Wow ,what a surprise! Family came up from Florida and wanted dinner at a good Italian restaurant. I have heard about Roma from a friend that raved about it and we gave it a try. The food and service was excellent. There was even a DJ in the next room playing some great music which we enjoyed. The prices were... More

Being from the west coast and an area that doesn't have a really good Italian restaurant I was excited to visit Roma due to rave reviews from family living in the area. I was not disappointed in my experience. We were warmly greeted by the owner upon arrival and seated promptly. The wine list was very good and I thought... More

Have been going to Roma for years and was sorry to hear that Dave sold it. It's always been my favorite restaurant. Went to lunch with my friend last week and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! The new owner quickly introduced himself and was very friendly. The food was excellent! The only complaint was although the bartender was'nt... More

If you are looking for good Italian food in a traditional "old school" setting, look no further! Be sure to have a reservation ( or hope you can get a seat at the bar). We sat at the bar and enjoyed the food, the wine, the service, atmosphere and other customers. Certainly not a fancy place ( jeans are fine)... More

Was introduced to Roma last year and have gone 3-4 times this year. About 40 minute ride for me - so this is a destination restaurant. Very authentic Italian - have loved everything I have had on the menu. Service is efficient - not particularly friendly. I love the cozy, tight, loud atmosphere - but be prepared for that. Impress...

We were there once before and now I know why we haven't been since. The noise level is beyond comprehension! It was difficult to enjoy our meal for fear our ears would start to bleed at any minute. I come form an Italian family that is usually highly excitable around the dinner table, so I'm used to noisy meals. Roma's... More

The food is delicious and the service is great. Old school Italian meets new school flair. Definitely make a reservation for dinner, you will need it on the weekends. The dining room is VERY tight. The tables are very close and it is quite dimly lit. Definitely an intimate, old school feel. Worth the trip!
