Delicious and will return for sure! Fun atmosphere and very well organized!
Always delicious with exceptionally friendly service.
Great food, a wonderful server. Will definitely come back only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was the 45 minute wait to get our table. They were slammed for Parents weekend and clearly had overbooked themselves.
I love Cafe Roma, but it was so loud, and the service took forever. They let us choose our reservation for seating in the bar area, it was all that was left. Which was fine. Except the poor bartender was taking care of all of the tables in there and it was too much. The food was good. I don't mind waiting, it just wasn't what I expected.
Great service and food. Lively atmosphere.
We had a wonderful time… Hanna , our server was special! She has exceptional qualities as a person! The food was delicious and the whole experience was memorable. Thank you 🙏
Cafe Roma is our go to place for consistently good Italian food at fair price. There is always a Rizzo family member on-site to make sure everything runs well. That same effort for 40 plus years is why we are still frequent guests.
Cafe Roma is the premier place to eat Italian food in San Luis Obispo. The wait staff is knowledgeable, the decor superb, and the food is reliably excellent. It's one of our favorite places to dine for special occasions.
It's not bad but it isn't good and certainly below expectations. Good menu but mediocre food. Good room but subpar service. Disappointing experience. We are wishing them well but not coming back.
Food is excellent but our waiter seemed to forget about us. I didn’t have anything to drink for the last part of meal. I ordered a beer which never arrived, I asked the assistant waiter for more water and that also never arrived.
The perfect place for a wonderful northern Italian meal! The salads, pastas, fish and meats are always deliciously prepared and the ambiance and service is excellent!
It was very nice!
My new fiancé and I had a great experience and the food was amazing!
Very disappointing. Both courses were mediocre at best. Not recommended.
Veal scaloppini in Marsala sauce was fabulous. My friends also raved about the lasagna and capellini pasta dishes. Sat outside and it was lovely. Upon arriving the music was a bit loud for us to visit, but when asked the waitress quickly turned the volume down. I have been coming here for over 20 years and it never disappoints (food, service, or ambience!)
WE had a lovely dinner with impeccable service and atmosphere. The patio dining was a perfect place for dinner. We always feel special when we come, and the food just could not be fresher and more delicious. Thanks so much for continuing to do an outstanding job during these difficult times.
As always we had a fantastic meal at Cafe Roma! This restaurant has been a favorite of mine for over 20 years and they still delight! The limoncello lemon drop is fantastic and their Caesar salad is one of the best. Tonight we also had the butternut squash ravioli and the special rack of lamb, both of which were delicious.
Braised short rib and polenta was delicious, as was the osdo bucco. Cannoli was good but son was disappointed there were no pistachios.
Service was not on par; hostess said "can I help you?" (like we were in the wrong place) instead of "do you have reservations?" Server did not describe any of the specials. Server disappeared once she took our orders, had to ask busboy to refill water bottle.
The food was outstanding and atmosphere was great. Will be coming back with family on Parents Weekend
Meals were delicious.
Had the veal piccata and enjoyed it thoroughly. The halibut special was also very good
Food took very long to come out. Did not come out at same time. Manager did not seem to care or come back to us when I spoke to him. Server did try to make it better but the meal was already hurt by the manager
Great place but it was really loud inside. We will request outdoor seating next time.
Great atmosphere, servers and food. What more could we ask for 👏
The owners and managers are awesome. We will go back for 50% off wine night! ❤
Calamari, beet salad, beef carpaccio, the house Sangiovese. Wonderful.
Always excellent food and service. We live in PASO and don’t go to SLO often for dinner, but when we go we almost choose Cafe Roma.
Awesome dinner. We will be back next year once again!
Food had great flavor, texture, and appearance. Service was outstanding, the staff watches your dining experience to anticipate when to bring you your dishes.
Always a great experience; excellent food and great service
The restaurant has a great reputation and the lasagna was delicious but I'll be honest, the rest of the dinner wasn't good: the bread was cold and dry. The Ceasar salad was made with a delicious dressing but they used the outer, thinner leaves of the lettuce and, before I had the chance to finish it, it became too soggy to eat. The (special) bread pudding wasn't warm, and maybe it wasn't intended to be warm, but it was served with a small scoop of ice cream and would have been so much better if it had been warm. It was also a bit dry.
Muy buena la comida.
the food was AMAZING. i had the chicken and i wish i could eat it everyday it was so delicious. the server i had was even more amazing!! everything made us feel at home and we are beyond happy we ate here. seriously eat here, you will not regret it.
Our visit was lovely. The staff is very friendly, the vibe is very pleasant and we enjoyed the meal.
Wait staff was good, and another member would have helped. I think we only had 2 servers for the whole restaurant.
Food was great, ambience was on point. Will be back!
Great service and food. Ambiance was very comfortable.
Always a lovely experience. Food is excellent and consistent. Service is outstanding.
Charming authentic Italian restaurant. The menu is varied and there are also daily specials. Drinks are served from their full bar.I had the zucchini blossoms and lasagna, both were delicious. The atmosphere felt as though we were in Italy. Very nice owner made sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend this restaurant. On a warm evening you can enjoy lovely outside dining. GO - you will be happy you did. This restaurant is casually elegant.
