    Had a less than great experience. They messed up my pasta order and I just ended up returing it and sharing my husbands pizza. His pizza was so so....this place is usually amazing. Maybe an off day? We will give it another try but a little disappointed.

    This is a really casual open plan restaurant. The have a decent but not elaborate wine list by the glass. The server was attentive. The best part was the food which is fresh, flavorful and abundant.

    I've been here numerous times and I highly recommend it of your in the mood for some classically good Italian food. Meatballs and bread is amazing. They also have a unique twist on the caprese salad, which is a must order...recommend sharing it with one other person though.

    Made a reservation for 12 about 4 hours prior to arriving. Had no problem accommodating us. Food was great and service was as well. Very enjoyable and we will definitely return.

    We always came here when the place first opened with the roman family, you have kept up the recipes very well! It's a comfy hip place for our family gatherings! Love gluten free free options! Shelia is very sweet!

    Our family has for the last seven years traditionally celebrated a family member's birthday with a Duffy boat cruise on the harbor followed by an early dinner. Our choice for the most part has been to go to Roman Cucina, which has changed names to Cucina Roma. The restaurant's food, service, and ambience are great-- we've never been disappointed - and we were happy to see that the change in name and presumably management didn't change any of the above. Great place for a couple to dine or a group-- either way you can't miss!

    Cucina Roma is a great little gem. The food was excellent (I had the shrimp & langostino) and so was the service. Prices were very reasonable. I'd definitely come back.

    Went here with a group of 10 people. I was happy they let us make a reservation even though it was Wednesday & they have their free corkage & 1/2 off wine special that night. Had the calamari & sauteed mushroom appetizers. Both were delicious, especially the mushrooms. The bread they brought to the table was fresh & crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. I ordered the special of the night- lobster ravioli. It came with some type of yummy cream sauce, sauteed mushrooms, & sundried tomatoes. It was BOMB! I even had 4 leftover raviolis that I ate for lunch the next day.
