The food was great (your marscapone (sp), salad dressing and loved my scampi diavalo and of course your cappucino dessert. Seemed somewhat hectic at times but loved to see the place filled w/ patrons who appreciate good food.

Best food in the area. It
Best food in the area. It is my go-to place for all business lunches. Many people don't know/or go because it's part of a retail strip center. Therein lies the beauty. The food and service are excellent. Big plus is the bar area always shows the big soccer games during the week.

Frank's Birthday Dinner
Celebrated Husband's birthday recently here; everything was wonderful. Frank (fmr. New Yorker), swears by the carparccio and great veal dishes. I love the hand-crafted pasta and risotto dishes. The staff are so welcoming, like family and attentive. Hands down the best Lasagna and Eggplant entrees!

Definitely come to this wonderful
Definitely come to this wonderful restaurant and partake of the fantastic wine and bar selection. Tonight, we experienced live guitar music which enhanced our dining experience. Pasta and meat dishes were superb and nicely seasoned. This is a fantastic neighborhood gem. Incredible service and the owner Lou is present and overseeing perfection in his establishment.

I am fortunate to have A'Roma's
I am fortunate to have A'Roma's right in my neighborhood. I have brought visitors from other cities and states - without exception, they were impressed that I had such a fine restaurant so close to home. The antipasto salad for lunch is the best!

Restaurant came highly recommended
Restaurant came highly recommended for the food & easily accessible from the freeway. Host was very pleasant, but service was not the best at the table. I was meeting a client for lunch so decided to sit down at the table to wait. NOT one person that passed by asked if I wanted anything. A glass of wine or bread would have been nice as my client was 1/2 hour late. When she arrived, waiter came over & spit out the specials and walked away, not even a breathe for me to ask a question or order appetizers. When he came back took our orders, I specifically said, we want to start off with the Calamaris. Salad came, than followed our food. NO calamaris. :o( I didn't bother to ask for them as the meal was plenty. Food very good, would recommend.

As usual our food was wonderful!
As usual our food was wonderful! But the service was not so good. We started with one waiter, who promptly left us after we said we wanted an extra minute to look over the menu. He never returned, so I had to grab another waiter to take our order. This waiter looked to be handling the entire room. I had to track him down numerous times to get our bill, extra silverware, etc. The food, however, was delivered to the table in a timely manner. A band was playing in the bar and was a bit too loud for conversation in the dining room.
My husband and I love this restaurant, but the service is a bit sketchy. This family run business needs to invest in some training.

Great Mother's Day
Took my grandmother and mom here for Mother's Day and they were blown away by the food. Grandma had the Chicken a la Romana and Mom had the Salmon ala Brace. They could not stop raving about the food. Service was a bit slower than normal, but I attribute that to it being Mother's Day. Service was still attentive and very polite.

The Gem of La Palma
Ive been coming to A'Roma for over 20 years and the food and service has just gotten better and better. It's a great spot for a first date or to get together with family. You know that the service is good when they are still checking to see if you need anything else when the bill is already paid. Water glasses are refilled all the way until the time you get up to leave. Most places totally abandon you after the bill comes. I think that is tacky and discourteous. A little cold water goes a long way toward our perception of the staff at the end of the night. Excellent service is more important than the food.

Fabulous Birthday Dinner
Celebrating a milestone birthday with my family for my father, and Aroma went above and beyond to make the experience wonderful. the personal attention, service and fabulous food made the evening a success and a fabulous memory! La Palma has a treasure in Aroma!

All personnel, from Hostess to Busboy, were friendly & nice, the food was wonderful & tasty. It is a great Italian resturant.

Perfect for Theater Go'ers
If you're headed to the La Mirada Theater for the Performing Arts, this is your best bet for a great pre-theater dining experience. The entire menu is worth ordering - but careful not to over-indulge! The portions are generous and very well prepared. My wife who is vegetarian is also pleased. I'm an omnivore and the veal and sausage & peppers are both quite good. We'll be back.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Service
First time there and we will go back again and again. Had a group of 6 people, including 2 very picky eaters and everyone gave it a thumbs up! Service was also really good.

Best Italian Food Anywhere
The food was fantastic and the service is always excellent. We went on a Wednesday night for the music and enjoyed it very much. The staff here is fabulous. Everybody is so friendly and they make you very comfortable.

A'Roma is the best.
The food is excellent and the staff treats you like a "regular".

Very good restaurant ..
Never would have known about this place if not for opentable. Nice little neighborhood find with good italian food. I would return.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great and the staff very accommodating. Nice and romantic and reasonably priced. I will definitely come back.

A'Roma is Eccellentissimo!!
As a family run business, there is a very noticeable focus on service which the staff excels at providing and as you might imagine, being true Italians, these folks not only love great food and wine, but they enjoy preparing it and sharing it with others. I've been to several upscale Italian restaurants over the years, costing more than the reasonably priced menu items at A'Roma's and I've found that very few restaurants can measure up to what A'Roma offers. The combination of exquisitely prepared Italian food, an extensive wine list that wine aficionado's would envy, unmatched service and all at very affordable prices is a combination that can't be beat. It's always a great experience and an unbeatable value. You won't be disappointed.

Been too long
Went to celebrate my daughter's bday and everyone enjoyed themselves. I didn't realize it had been over two years since we had been there! My niece reminded me last night that we can't wait another two years to go back again!
Enjoyed the Rigatoni alla Vodka, pesto rigatoni and the Capelleni alla Checca; the simple pleasures.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never disappoints :) Will be back
I can say this. I was introduced to The restaurant four years ago by a friend. Now, I never stop going to eat there. The food is awesome, not to mention service. As a frequent customer, I can't complain about the experience. Definitely a good spot to bring your girlfriend or wife on your anniversary. Many of the regulars are known by the staff and owners of the restaurant for years. I don't blame them for returning constantly.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great family owned place to have a nice dinner before events at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. We always go and enjoy the friendly family staff.

Aroma is consistently one
Aroma is consistently one of the best Italian restaurants in Orange County. The family owned operation serves outstanding cuisine, including some killer pasta and wonderful veal dishes. The cheesecake is to die for and absolutely the best. Come enjoy this gem. Dom, our waiter was outstanding as well...
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
I forget the exact name of the dish but it is their lasagna that I speak of. It is the best.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Aroma's is that rare neighborhood
Aroma's is that rare neighborhood gem where you get wonderful food that taste's like mama used to make. The pasta and veal recipes are among the best and the cheesecake dessert is to die for. The service is consistently good. This is a incredible family owned high class restaurant serving outstanding food. Who says you have to go into Los Angeles for superior quality food. Enjoy and have fun here.
10/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
My pasta was perfect and my guest really enjoed their meal too! I will be back.

Comfortable Neighborhood Spot
A'Romas is a great little neighborhood spot. They serve a good assortment of foods from appetizers to entrees to desserts. There is something to please every palette. I really like how they will customize meals to your liking. Many places will let you substitute something here and there, but at A'Roma's you can nearly remake the dish to your liking, if that is what you please.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best
Food, service, everything is just out of this world.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice evening!
We read about A'Roma in a magazine and thought we'd give it a try. We will be sure to return! The service was outstanding. The menu is extensive and our dinner was very good. I had the shrimp scamp and my husband had a chicken dish. They offered us the option of choosing any side pasta and sauce with our main entree, which was very nice. We plan to invite friends to return with us again soon.

I really loved this restaurant ... super great food, wonderful service, and very nice ambiance. I'm so glad I found this on Open Table. I'll be back again and again. Our favorite dish was the Penne Arribiatta (we substituted linguini). The sauce was the best ever. We also had their signature Spaghetti with Bolognese sauce... so good!

Fit for a king
The best way to describe this place is great food, romantic and cozy. A place were the owners take time to really cater to you an help make the experience pleasant while providing a traditional Italian home Cooke meal with a touch of elegance.

RARELY DOES A RESTAURANT COMBINE EXCELLENT FOOD, PROMPT SERVICE, AND A UNIFORMLY FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE AS DOES A'ROMA RESTAURANT IN LA PALMA. WE ALWAYS LOVE GOING THERE - IF ONLY THE FOOD WERE LO-CAL. THANK YOU!!!

I've always enjoyed my time
I've always enjoyed my time at A'Roma! It's great to go to a family owned restaurant, especially for someone like me who is essentially a "road warrior", to enjoy repeated visits where the food is great, the service is excellent and where you have an opportunity to get to know those who own and manage the restaurant. The Ferrari's are a great family and they run a great business!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love Aroma's and each time
I love Aroma's and each time I dine in this family owned operation, I am greeted with superior cuisine. There chicken caesar and veal are perfect and the cheesecake dessert is to die for. Service by Dom is top notch. Run, don't walk to this gem of a restaurant and experience cooking that mama used to make.
