Core de Roma - West Chester
GreatGreat food as always. Haven't had a bad meal there yet! Great service as well.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMInvested Owner Makes the DifferenceWant an excellent Italian meal and feel as if your patronage matters? Try Core de Roma, a neighborhood BYOB with reasonable prices. Fine, authentic Northern Italian cuisine with an attentive staff and an owner who welcomes both regulars and first timers alike, as if he has known you for years.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Core de RomaI have been to Core de Roma at least five times since it opened, and I have never been disappointed. The food, prices and service are all very good, and the home made gnocchi is excellent. The only negative I can recall was the noise level on a Saturday night. My wife and I love to dine there mid -week, and since it's a BYOB, the cost is nominal. Kudos to the owner for bringing this fine restaurant to West Chester.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food. Very loud though.Food was very good but service was slow. Server was excellent and tried to make up for the length if time it took for us to get our food.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary Dinner at Core De RomaWe visited this cute little Trattoria last evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a busy night and it got a little noisy, but other than that the atmosphere was very nice. Our server was very personable and took great time and care with us.
We will most definitely return to Core de Roma in the future.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst time visitMy wife and I came for our anniversary, on the recommendation of friends.

It was ourEXCELLENT food. It was our first time, but will not be the last. I've found my "new" favorite Italian restaurant in West Chester. The owner, Gigi, treated us like he's known us for years and our server was attentive, but not overbearing.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will definitely be back again!We were so pleased to find Core de Roma in West Chester, having been to it several times in South Street, Phila. The menu is great. We had the artichokes and risotto balls to start, followed by Puttanesca, Pollo Prima Vera and Rigatoni alla Boscaiola - all great. It was packed - on a Tuesday evening - so reservations are advisable. It was a little noisy with several large family groups and unruly children (kids are not the restaurant's fault), so the owner came around and apologized and said he was working on minimizing sound travelling around the room. But, it had a great, warm atmoshpere, so the noise was not so bad. We will definitely be back again soon!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were excellent. The menu is extensive and reasonable. We'll return soon!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPHENOMENALCore de Roma is a diamond in the rough. If I hadn't been to their other location on South Street in Philadelphia, I would not have known about the West Chester location. Took my family on Sunday for my daughter's birthday and it was phenomenal! From the greeting at the door, to the appetizers, to the main course to the dessert to the farewell as we left. All top notch. I am planning a return to in early May and it just may be the place our family goes to for special and not so special occasions. I highly recommend this restaurant for an exceptional dining experience!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the most deliciousWe had the most delicious arugula salad. I am still thinking about it. And the fettuccini Bolognese, and gnocchi gorgonzola were excellent. The service was friendly. We will definitely be going back soon!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall Gem of a spot in W.C bouroughFelt that everything went very well. Food was great.. had the Veal Chop stuffed with cheese and mushrooms. The rest of the table really enjoyed their meal as well. We had a waitress by the name of Rita...AWESOME! Ask for her when you go...shes a riot and on top of all your needs! Small place tucked in by the Poilce Department in W.C. Will be back and very soon.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at Core de Roma and I went there on the recommendations of a friend. Since the restaurant came Highly recommended I invited two other couples. Upon arriving we were seated promptly and met by our server Rita. Rita was well versed on the specials and was an excellent server. The food was served promptly, paced properly and at the perfect temperature. The food and presentation were superb. Unfortunately the noise level in the restaurant ruined the experience dining experience and althought we enjoyed the food we did not enjoy the evening. Another problem was the check, our server was great but did not know the prices and over charges us on four items. We choose not to bring it to her attention.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother lovely meal with theAnother lovely meal with the great people at Core de Roma.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNew place in town.We had a group of 6 for our first visit to Core de Roma and were very satisfied with the experience. The attention of the manager and servers were top-notch, the food choices were great, and we were made to feel comfortably at home. Our entrees were varied, but all were enjoyable. I was particularly happy with my veal chop! We all agreed that we will be back for another visit. A fine start for a "new restaurant in town," especially since at least 3 other places within a 1/4 mile compete directly with Core de Roma in food and decor.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!Excellent food, excellent service...can't wait Togo back!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I had an earlyMy wife and I had an early dinner at Core de Roma in West Chester.

The owner was very concerned that we had to wait and quickly found us a table. Our server was great and the food was too. We had the sausage and rabe appetizer and also the bruschetta. The bruschetta was perfect - 4 large pieces and a salad center. Dinner for us was salmon, veal parmigiana and chicken saltimbocca. My saltimbocca was over seasoned for my taste but was otherwise nicely done and presented. For dessert we had the canoli's These were one of the best we've ever had.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful new restaurant extendingWonderful new restaurant extending their presence from Center City to West Chester.
