The food yummy and service wonderful.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing gem of a restaurant!We were looking for a place to have lunch after Lehigh Univ. graduation and decided to take a chance on Roma. Roma was a wonderful surprise after we got pass the Roman gladiator at the entrance. The food was awesome. Only the freshest ingredients were used. To start the server brought a small plate with a dollop of a mix of finely chopped fresh herbs then drizzled olive oil over it and served it with a basket of warm rosemary bread. Dinner was divine, the server was attentive, the courses were brought out at the perfect pace. Don't be taken back that this gem is in a shopping center, I wish we had found this restaurant when our graduate was a freshmen. Luckily we live within driving distance and will be back for more amazing meals!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousWE have always enjoyed a fabulous meal at Roma. Can't say enough. Last time we took our daughter and the entire family there for her graduation dinner. Everyone raved about their food and the portions. Always enough to enjoy for another meal. A must !5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayI took my mother to this restaurant because it is known for it's italain food and it truly was. My mother is hard to impress when it comes to italian food but when she started eating her dish she loved it. I would recommend this place to anyone who truly loves italian food, enjoys a warm atmosphere, and good service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Service!We went here on Mother's day, this was our first time here.

We will definitely be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always delicious...The food here is always delicious, but I did notice that some service is better than others. The first time we went the server was amazing, tely knew the menu very attentive and personable. The second time our server forgot to enter our appetizer so we never got it and she only stopped by the table once to refill drinks and ask how things were. The service wasn't horrible, she was pleasant enough, just a big difference between the two.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMif you haven't tried....gojoey and crew do a fabulous job of serving the best Italian meal and delivering to all of your requests!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent QualityThe bread and dipping oil were delicious, calamari was excelent, and the dinners were fantastic.

Sangria was especially good!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMRoma, a great Italian placeGreat Italian place !!!!!! We have been here several times. An have loved it every time. Fresh, exciting, tasty, place to take your special someone out for a nice romantic dinner. Small seating area, lots of booths. Not so much for big party's, but have seen some up to 8. Food is too fancy and well prepared to bring kids. Then again why would you want to bring the kids to a romantic dinner. Let them at home with the pizza and Mac-n-cheese they want.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food. EggplantConsistently good food. Eggplant Romano, Eggplant Parm perfectly cooked, tender and not bitter. Red sauce has good flavor, not to sweet and not watery. The Lasagna was huge but very good. Good ratio of meat and cheese and again perfectly cooked. The chicken parm was a little crispier this time, a tad overcooked, but still better than other places we've been.
Shrimp limoncello never disappoints as a shareable appetizer. 5 shrimp topped with a little crabmeat in a velvety lemon, butter sauce that you just want to eat with a spoon.
We will be back, again and again.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a group of nine forWe had a group of nine for a special occasion. Roma was very accommodating. Food portions are large (we all took food home). Service was great, the chef came out to ask how our food was. Our overall experience was impressive.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
