Diner Reviews
  • "We had a fantastic waitress who certainly wasn't shy about her favorite recommendations. All the food here is well prepared and very reasonably priced. My wife had the tortellini and there was enough for 2 servings. I had the Lobster Pescatore which was loaded with seafood. Comes with lobster tail, shrimp, scallops over pasta. Great sauce. Drinks were very good. Others in my party had the shrimp scampi and chicken francaise---which was also enough for 2 servings. Unfortunately those big meals leave little room for dessert. While this is situated in a strip mall, once inside , it takes on a new ambiance. Look for the trojan statue outside."

  • "Went for dinner with three friends and we REALLY enjoyed it. We loved our waitress, who was very attentive - and even OFFERED separate checks for us at the end which we appreciated. My cosmo was terrific, all in all, we'll be back!"

  • "I love the ambience of this place. The shrimp bisque was amazing. The food here is truly outstanding. There is never a dish I have not tried yet that I have not liked. The absolute crab meat is simple amazing. The pasta was perfectly cooked. The eggplant was so fresh as well."

  • "We reserved a table for 2 couples, and after a very short wait, our table was readied. Our server was very prompt in the initial greeting, especially given how busy the restaurant was. We skipped the appetizers and dove into dinner. I had the chicken Franchase, it was exactly as i expected it to be, very well prepared and tasty. My companion had Pasta Alfredo, and it was better than most restaurants. i tried it, and i was pleasantly surprised. My Brother in law had the Scallops, he finished the plate. His wife had Chicken Marseille, and loved it. A good dining experience in Allentown."

  • "This was my second visit to Roma. I absolutley love the food - I don't know of a better Italian place around! I had reservations for 7:30pm - we didn't get seated until a little after 8pm. Host staff was very accomodating and polite thought. Once we sat, we were greeted by a very unfriendly waitress who had an air of attitude the entire time she was serving us. She actually rolled her eyes at one of the people in my party. Other than her service, the meal was fantastic. I had the lobster ravoli - I definitely reccommend! In fact, I had a little taste of everyone's dish at the table and have absolutely no complaints. I will be returning to Roma in the near future - I just hope the wait staff is a little nicer and more pleasant next time!"

  • "Tried their trio menu, very low quality, Had the Chicken Parm, wife had the Eggplant Parm both were straight from the freezer to the fryer to the table. It was eatable but kinda something you would expect from a mid priced buffet in Vegas. Guess I expected more from a restaurant that claimed to be "the best in the area" with a competent chef. Again it was just OK, they did have a very nice choice of pizzas and salads, however we did not partake. Maybe will try their pizza for takeout."

  • "This has been my 5th or 6th time to Roma's and love this place. I travel the Northeast and eat at a lot of restaurants, and to me it is always the little things that make a great restaurant. My food came out hot, service was fantastic, and they had my table ready for our reservation time. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, my wife had egg plant and veal parm, and both were outstanding. Even had my Seven Deadly Zins red zinfandel wine which is my favorite. And they offered the full menu for valentines day.... Also have a full bar and make killer martini's. Guess my only complaint was they didnt have blue cheese olives for the martini but hard to find any negatives for this place. Highly, highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "The restaurant was nice, traditional italian. The bread they give you is great and the salad my date and I had was good as well. Our entrees were good, great large portions but I thought could have been more seasoned. It was a busy night but just a bit disappointing considering how the meal started. Staff was great and did not keep you waiting."

  • "Things stated off well. The appetizer, salad, and bread were excellent. Not so with the entrees. The stuffed shelled Florentine was rather bland. We also had a lobster tail/scallops dish which my grown daughter was not very happy with. The scallops were very over cooked to the point they were rubbery. The lobster was not much better. We were in a hurry so we did not send the dinners back. Would not recommend this place for entrees."

  • "Had an excellent dinner for my wife's birthday. We had Absolute Crabmeat, chicken francese, and the seafood scampi with lobster, crab, scallops, and shrimp. All were great tasting and fresh. Clams casino for an appetizer were huge and tasty. Service was excellent and knowledgeable as usual. Roma's never disappoints."

  • "Diverse menu; very tasty well prepared appetizers and entrees. Hats off to dessert chef. One of the best Crème Brule I've ever tasted. Certainly THE BEST chocolate covered strawberries, dipped with his own made chocolate. Owner and staff are very accommodating and responsive to patrons needs. Definitely noisy but worth the sacrifice."

  • "I recently took 7 members of my family to lunch at Roma. I normally avoid Italian restaurants because our home made food is almost always superior, my family is very Mediterranean. Well in the case of Roma, this is never a worry. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Our group was my parents, mother-in-law and my son's family, which included my 18 month old grandson. This was our third visit, 2 lunches and 1 dinner. I plan to return again and recommend Roma to anyone who wants good service and excellent food, okay who wouldn't! The place is modern, neat and clean. Fair warning, I suggest reservations for dinner, especially over the weekend."

  • "What a nice surprise to find such a well developed menu and quality food in a strip mall setting. Its setting sets the expectation bar too low. Go here for good Italian food."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We were seated immediately and our server was great, very knowledgeable,energetic. The food service was really quick. Almost too quick. Apps and our entrees were food was delicious. The chef even came out to speak with us. Dessert was great as well. My only complaint is that after dessert and coffee, the hostess came over and told us that they had a reservation for that table. Basically if your done eating, get out. My friend and I went during the holiday season, when you normally spend more time talking.I don't think we were there more than an hour. I felt very unwelcome at that point. Too bad, I really liked the place. I won't be back anytime soon."

  • "Their Italian Wedding Soup is a favorite. Service is courteous and attentive. Nice décor."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "Portions were small for an Italian restaurant, which I think are too large to begin with, so it's not a complaint - just a review/comparison. Chicken was a bit tough compared to what I'm accustomed to when I order Chicken Francese - usually, it's thicker and can be easily cut with a fork. Overall, food was adequately good - nothing amazing. The Italian Wedding Soup was excellent - lots of meatballs, and all food was served very hot, which was excellent. Service was fine, especially considering it was Christmas eve. Very friendly and didn't feel rushed. Would choose another area Italian restaurant over this one next time, however - I have my favorites. :-)"

  • "We had a group of seven (adults and teenagers) dining in the day after Thanksgiving at 130pm. We're late for about 30 minutes. The table was set up for us properly. We enjoyed the afternoon sun close to the window. The restaurant was busy but the servers was double teamed and served prompt and in person as much as possible. The food portion is big and in good quality. We all felt the all-in service are worth the monies we paid. The 18% gratituity is added to our bill automatically. This was the first time I used the Open Table for dining. We enjoyed the effective and excellent services provided by Open Table."
