Core de Roma - West Chester
Food was just OK, and not worth the $85 price tag for 2 entrees, 1 appetizer & 1 dessert. This is a BYOB, so we only had water. I had pasta alla carbanaro, wife had fish of the day. Sorry, we won't recommend.....
Our Go-To nice dining facility. Very friendly owners and staff; great food and overall great value
We enjoyed our first visit to Core de Roma on Friday night over the 4th of July weekend. The owner, Luigi (Gigi) greeted us after we were seated, opened our wine, and suggested menu items for us to try. We shared the Supploni al Telefono appetizer, which was delicious and very filling, as was the homemade bread. I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan dinner and my husband had Spaghetti Puttanesca. Both were excellent - the eggplant was sliced very thin and not breaded, rather layered like lasagna. The restaurant was not full, probably due to the holiday weekend, yet it was still quite noisy, however, the food was very good and the atmosphere enjoyable, so we will return even though it's a bit loud.
Everything was excellent! Waitress was very attentive and accommodating. The owner came over and opened our wine for us. I had the rigatoni alla boscaiola which was amazing and my boyfriend had a seafood pasta dish which was great as well. Overall a great experience and will definitely be returning!!
Home style Italian! Wonderful!!!
Great food and service. You have to check out this BYOB Spot!
It was the first time we went to Core de Roma and we would go definitely go back. Great place.
The food was excellent as always. The eggplant parmigiana is the best I have had. We also tried the pasta with black pepper, I don’t remember the name. It was amazing especially if you like pepper
Great food. Great service. One of my fav Italian spots in the area.
The menu is varied and the dishes are always superb. I love this place.
We were looking forward to a Father's Day lunch and truly enjoyed the warm hospitality of the restaurant owners. Because of the early hour, the Father's Day crowd had not arrived. We had the restaurant to ourselves. What a treat! We each had a fish entree prepared with an unctious lemon sauce and enjoyed the homemade Tiramisu and ricotta cheesecake as well. A return visit with friends for sure.
My favorite restaurant in West Chester.... you can count on friendly service, great food and a welcoming atmosphere. What’s not to love!
As always we were greeted promptly and enjoyed a great meal with friendly helpful servers. We will be going back and we would recommend.
Love the restaurant, love the food, the owner could not be nicer, this is our favorite place in West Chester and beyond! You do need to change out the ceiling tile for something which has better acoustics sometime in the near future.
Always great place! The fact that we have been there on 40 to 50 occasions over several years, usually with a good number of friends and scheduled group get togethers for the Sunday pranzo offering, speaks for itself. Two bonuses deserve mention, free parking in the lot out front and it is a BYOB.
Excellent food as always. The pasta is perfectly prepared. Highly recommended and BYO
Always a great meal and service. Owner is genuinely interested in the entire process, checking in with the table twice during our meal. Highly recommended!
Nice atmosphere. Delicious food and great service.
Will definitely be going back!!!
We visited Core de Roma on Mother’s Day. The food was great. I had the lobster and crab ravioli in a blush sauce. My wife had the spaghetti carbonara. We enjoyed our meals and will return.
Great authentic Italian food and very nice people.
Always a good meal. Had the pasta special and it was wonderful.
THE place for authentic Italian food! Definitely going back. Easy parking too.
Wow! What a wonderful meal and experience.
Great service & food that cannot be beat.
Definitely will return
The cozy - just like grandmom’s house- atmosphere and the friendly staff topped off an amazing meal.
My girlfriends and I really enjoyed our dinner at Core de Roma! The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Will definitely go back
Great food. Attentive staff
First time at Core de Roma. Good selection on menu. Had an artichoke appetizer that was really good. Enjoyed Pasta Carbonara and Eggplant Parmesan. Sauce on pasta was excellent. Finished off by sharing a lemoncello/mascarpone pie. Very nice. Definitely will go back. Owner greets you and checks on your visit a few times..nice touch.
Excellent...we were five for dinner. Three pasta dishes and two seafood dishes. All agreed we went back in time and felt like we were home eating around the table on a Sunday afternoon with our family. Our waitress was terrific, she gave us wonderful suggestions, and great service.
Looking forward to returning this wonderful restaurant.
Best Italian food in West Chester! The owner is so sweet and everything is just amazing
Best Carbonara I've ever had! Fantastic service and a family feel. Highly recommended!
this restaurant has excellent food!! highly recommend!
Great food, friendly and attentive server.
Returning often because of the great food which is always very consistent.
Best Italian in West Chester. Food is outstanding, ambiance is casual and not ostentatious. Great for a night out and for families.
I have eaten here twice and each time the food was outstanding. Service is hit or miss but not bad. I highly recommend the tripe either as an app or an entree. Osso bucco was excellent. My fiance had a fish special which was also great. Prices are reasonable also.
Had a fantastic dinner experience. The owner Luigi was very friendly and in fact made us feel like family. Food was great too. Highly recommended.
Very good BYO Italian restaurant with a heavy reliance on family recipes. Exceptional service. But that noise! Most tables seem to be reserved for larger groups which when coupled with poor acoustics, create noise levels that can be downright annoying.
This restaurant never disappoints...an amazing dinner!
We started with an appetizer that consisted of fresh mozzarella over arugula with balsamic vinaigrette, candied walnuts and dried cranberries that we all enjoyed very much. The Rigatoni alla Boscaiola was our favorite - so delicious! But the other meals - Spaghetti Carbonara and an Octopus special were also very good. The cannoli's were a perfect way to end a truly enjoyable experience at Core de Roma. We will definitely go back.
