Our server was David and we experienced extremely poor service, as he forgot our order and had to ask us twice. We also had to ask for the check, dessert menu and for a box several times. The food was adequate but I was expecting much better.
Tasty food, solid wine list. Felt charming and cozy. I was really pleasantly surprised!
The food was not that great. The soup was watery (minestrone) and the risotto was undercooked. I would not go back.
Food and service was excellent. Real authentic Italian food. The Osso Buco was delicious.
Food was wonderful. So was the atmosphere. Our server, Dave, was great! All in all, a comfortable and fun return to local dining!
Roxanne was an amazing waitress!
It was great for a family dinner, we could all hear each other without feeling like we were making too much noise ourselves. Great experience all around!!
Great service and delicious meal. Excellent tiramisu.
Our server Dave was the best very personable and funny.
Good atmosphere and friendly service. The food preparation was a bit dated. The burrata appetizer was good but was spoiled by its sheer size and all the roasted red peppers. I could've fed a small family with that. Similarly, the housemade ravioli was wonderful at first. A delicious filling with a light fresh pasta surrounding it. But the bolognese on it was clearly not fresh, unartfully presented, and surprisingly no one even offered grated parmesan cheese. So, good friendly place, terrific service, OK food, and OK to go but do not have high culinary ambitions.
wonderful in every way! delicious food, superb service......always try to eat here when i'm in SLO!
An excellent dining experience as I booked this for treating my cousins from Mexico for dinner. Great safety measures but better than that, the food was very, very good. I am from Sonoma County so this was a shot in the dark.
Twice in the last two weeks after several years. Excellent service and delicious food - lots of choices now on the central coast- don’t miss Cafe Roma.
Had the Cafe Roma salad to start and veal scaloppine, both very good. Nice to finally sit inside again socially distanced of course but they do have a beautiful patio. Inside great views of the mountains. The owner stopped by and we visited for a while. Very hospitable, gracious host and friendly to us. Had not been to Roma in a while and was like visiting an old great friend. Finished off our meal with a perfectly done Tiramasu and off we went for a stroll around the great neighborhood on way back to our hotel.
Very good food for a fair price. Our server was friendly, but slow. He said that he had been working at the restaurant for one month and had not sampled the entire menu. We have dined at the restaurant 3-4 times in the past and have enjoyed the overall experience.
We loved the service, and the food was very good! My children also enjoyed it.
There was a party of four it was a birthday celebration as well as one year reuniting with dear friends since Covid. Great food! Excellent service.
As always good food for good price
had the short rib ravioli special
Wonderful family-owned restaurant with great food and drinks!
We enjoyed eating on the patio and the food was great. It worked out well for all of us.
Delicious dinner with friends on the heated outdoor patio. The salmon with lemon citrus cause was particularly good.
Karen’s (my) 60th Bday! It was wonderful! We had great service and food-Thank you!
The short ribs are to die for, amazing. Service always the best, they are professional and easy going; great times.
Great food, excellent service and fabulous food. Haven’t been there in several years and still superb.
Overall experience was fine but the food was about average
Our French Onion soup appetizer was sooo delish! All four of us had some and it didn't disappoint. We each had something different. The meat ravioli Bolognese was very good and would have been the right size serving if I didn't have the soup first. My husband had the Salmon which was a very good portion and delicious and cooked to perfection. Our daughter had the lasagna with the Béchamel sauce, excellent too! And our friend had the squash ravioli, didn't taste that but saw that her plate was clean at the end.
Ordered the lemon sorbet and the special Beignet's for the table for dessert. The lemon sorbet was very good and could tell it was homemade. The Beignet's were very sweet and tasted like very light donuts. I don't have a very sweet tooth, but my husband liked them, the others weren't impressed. Overall, a good dinner and enjoyed sitting outside under heat lamps.
Great food and friendly service. So glad to be to indoor dinning.
Must have been an off night for server and food. I’ve had great meals here before, not sure what happened.
It’s been several years since we’ve visited, but the food seemed even better than before. Pretty traditional menu, but well made with a few nice surprises. The tented patio where we were able to meet safely as a group lacked the ambiance of inside, but attentive staff, and relative quiet made for a great evening. One of the few nicer restaurants in the area that would take reservations.
We have eaten here multiple times and Cafe Roma is always on our list of favorites when in the area
Love it, food was great
Lovely interior with generous spacing between tables which I hope remains in place. The pasta special of the night was a beef short ribs ravioli that was filled with well balanced flavors and very tender pasta. The staff was so outgoing but never intrusive.
We will be back for certain!
Just great ! Eating outside was a little uncomfortable but what can you do.
Great food, service and wine!
Very good dinner. Ravioli and short ribs were outstanding. Dined on Tuesday when bottles of wine were 50% off.
The food was amazing but the staff definitely set this restaurant apart. We look forward to coming back soon
Delicious food, great service and nice ambiance. Will definitely return.
I know prices of food have gone up but it would have been nice to have soup or salad included with the entree. Made reservations, shown to a table right away. Excellent waiter, Paul?, just came back from being off 6 mts. He is excellent and was training someone new who was good also. The Caesar salad was good and my husband and I split. Both my husbands and my dinner were $28. Bread was good with oil and vinegar. Nice setting not too cold or hot.
The food wasn’t anything great. Ordered the eggplant Parma and lobster ravioli. Lobster ravioli was fishy and not good lobster. Eggplant was just ok. Gave them information in advance about my sons 19 birthday and they didn’t acknowledge or do anything. Not bad but definitely not somewhere I would go back and way too much money for mediocre food.
We used to love the place. The soup was excellent. My fish was over done. All the other food was good, but not exceptional.
