  • "Great restaurant. Very competent wait staff. The food is consistently good and they are willing to adapt dishes as necessary. My personal favorite is the salmon. Highly recommend for a business lunch or a nice dinner."

  • "I took advantage of the Saturday night wine tasting with entertainment. A delightful, noteworthy experience with a two person combo, including the owners son Anthony who is quite talented. The food here is sensational and is one of the best Italian restaurants in Orange County. You can't miss from the delicious pasta to the numerous meat/chicken and nightly special dishes. Enjoy..."

  • "We enjoyed A'Roma so much the first visit a few years ago, we came again. Loved the antipasti, fine Pinto Grigio.my husband had the veal marsala and it was excellent served with the right amount of pasta and a side of vegetables. I had the canneloni, two generously filled crepe like pasta with a side salad. very filling very good. The foccacia bread with the marscapone and marinara as the bread and butter service is a meal in itself. And Spumoni for dessert! The restaurant was also hosting a wine dinner in the banquet room, their bar had regular guests. You must go and tell Anthony you heard about them on Open Table!"

  • "From a casual night out to a formal affair A'Roma is the place to go. I have been coming here for the best part of 20 years and have never had a bad meal or experience. As a delightful aside many of the waiters speak northern Italian which my mother when she would visit could communicate with her in her native tongue. The price of the meal and beverages are reasonable , particularly when considering the quality of the food and service. Overall, just a gem for a local establishment."

  • "We were celebrating our 5th anniv and made reservations here. From the moment we walked in, to when every item ordered arrived, to when we were exiting the restaurant, we were greeted a happy anniversary. The staff is so friendly and patient as we were first timers, our server Juan even made a few suggestions and they did not disappoint. The cheesecake souffle is a must try!"

The food and service was out of this world, the hosted was very nice (owners daughter) and the chef and other staff did their jobs to the fullest. This is a new spot for us we came all the way from Pomona to this p[lace and it was well worth it, we were even able to meet the Chef which was a treat."

The Ferrari family owns and operates this establishment and you can never go wrong with daily specials highly recommended. The wait staff, including Dom and Baron are the very best.

  • "A'Roma is not inexpensive, but it executes every stop beautifully. It makes a perfect choice for people who love Italian food (who doesn't?) and who want a convenient (just off the 91 Fwy.) and lovely place to go. Each time I have dined there I have been pleased and am looking forward to the next occasion. I sometimes hesitate to recommend a place too highly for fear of disappointing, but the others in our party were also impressed and commented several times on how good the food was. It has a genuine Italian feel, beautiful vintage black and white photos on the walls, friendly and competent staff, and wonderful cooks. I can't imagine your regretting a visit there."

  • "A perfect evening at a reasonable price. We'll be back."

  • "This lovely Italian gem is a must to dine and enjoy outstanding Italian Cuisine. The recipes are culled from the 'old world' and each entree never disappoints. Nice nightly specials which I highly recommend. The service, by Dom, is very professional, friendly and efficient. Job well done and the food is a treat. Don't miss the 'out of this world' cheesecake. A true winner."

  • "I was in town for a convention and took my customer here. Our group size kept changing and the restaurant was very accommodating to my requests, basically they said whatever size you need we will get. I ended up only having 6 and we were in a table off to the side where we could talk, enjoy our company and not bother anybody else. The food was good but nothing to write home about. I had the veal saltimbocca as well as another and we both thought there was too much sauce on it. Other than that it had great flavor and texture. The wine list was also good. I probably wouldn't go out of my way for A'Roma Ristorante but I would also go again if I was in the neighbor hood."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Food was outstanding, servers and all staff were very friendly. A great experience, and will definitely bring clients back!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "This is our second time dining at Aroma Ristorante. It was recommended by a friend and we absolutely loved it. You are greeted and welcomed right away upon opening the door. The waiters are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Although it would seem that the open table dining would be noisy, it is actually quite relaxing. You don't feel rushed. The food is amazing. I had the chicken cacciatore and the sauce was delicious. Try the spumoni for dessert."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. Service is always excellent and the food is always great. The restaurant has been in the neighborhood for many years and never disappoints."

  • "Enjoyed another great meal, good service and friendly atmosphere. Only problem was they did not have our reservation made through Open Table. I showed them the "reminder" that I had received confirming our reservation and they even had me look at their computer to ensure they did not overlook. Fortunately they had a table and we were seated immediately."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Enjoyed a great dinner there. We had reservations and had to wait a few minutes. In the mean time they offered us free drinks for having to wait. All the staff were very friendly. It's a family run business and they were all friendly and accomodating. The food was terrific! It tasted very fresh and was nice and hot. Would definitely recommend it to anyone."

Along with world class waiter service, luscious pasta and veal dishes, the best cheese cake in the world along with a notable and extensive wine list elevates this establishment to top notch status. Outstanding in every way, shape and form..."

  • "My boyfriend and I came here for our Valentine's day date early because he works a 24 hour shift on the 14th. We had to change our reservation time to 7:30 so I called to ask if that would be possible and they said they would accommodate me. When we got there, our reservation had not been changed by the person who answered the phone but they honored my word and sat us down quickly even though they were packed. We ordered the calamari to start which was just fantastic, a merlot, a moscato, penne toscana, and fettuccine alfredo with chicken. I loved the drinks and calamari so much! The pays was also perfectly cooked and in a delicious sauce. Secondly will be coming back here."
