    Although the food tasted good, some of it wasn't what we expected. We ordered the artichoke and leek appetizer and the fried onions on top were chewy instead of crispy which made them inedible. Also, I ordered the pasta tartufo but there wasn't even a hint of truffle flavor in the dish. It was tastey, just not what I was hoping for and I wished I ordered something else. The rest; the drinks, other appetizers and entre my friend ordered were delicious. Also, the staff were awesome! For our first time there, it was alright but it didn't knock my socks off, unfortunately.

    I highly recommend M'Tucci's Bar Roma. Great Central Ave location and food and beverage that is as great as the I-25 as well as the Montano locations. Their salads are so good and adding a protein like the Harris Ranch Hangar steak. It is absolutly off the charts great. Nice craft cocktails to boot. Nothing not to like here.....

    The dinning room was very loud. In addition to the customers the kitchen was super noisy. The food was terribly disappointing. Pasta was under cooked and the "cream sauce" was not creamy.

    The food was awesome. Well developed flavors but still retaining the simplicity of the style. In other words I could still taste individual components without the sauces becoming muddied. So may places overstate with too much spice and salt. Not what I had at this M'tucci. The wait staff was good and friendly. Management made sure to visit table and welcome us. Everything was fresh and scratch made. I am going back soon.

    Medium steaks were delivered nearly raw, risotto was flavorless. This location lacks the attention to quality and consistency that its sister locations mastered. Cocktails were excellent, though.

    Arugula salad fried pork bacon dish with polenta at $19.00 was more lik a an appetizer. Way over priced. The arugula was more for decoration not a salad and the polenta was more like an accent.

    We enjoyed an early dinner and very nice, well made cocktails. We split a small Mista salad, bread and oil, and the pasta alla arriabiata. It was just perfect for us. Our server Ali was excellent and gave us great suggestions along with excellent service. We will be back!

    I'm an Italian New Yorker so my husband hates going to Italian restaurants with me because I'm so critical. But this meal was amazing. No complaints from me! I had the eggplant parmigiana and roasted artichokes, my husband had the ravioli special and we split the very creative Twinkie d'Italia for dessert. Everything was outstanding. And our server, Fermin, was wonderful... friendly, conscientious, funny, and quick.

    Glad we had a reservation as it was quite busy, which is good. It’s difficult to have a conversation with a person with hearing issues due to the noise level. The hostess seated us as far away from the center as possible which seemed like an attempt to get us where it would be quieter than the center.

    The new place is lovely, our served could not have been more friendly and helpful. He was a delight. The dish I ordered was horrible...it was the Pasta Tartufo and it was just one big mass of stuck together pasta with very little flavor. Not what I would expect from you. I was very disappointed, but didn't want to make a big deal over it because the place was busy. I just brought it home and threw it away. To be fair I had the artichocke, parsnip, appetizer and it was fabulous. That's what I expected from my entreee was fabulous..but not to be. We had the dessert with the gelato and espresso. The espresso too hot and melted the gelato instantly to become soup. Would not order that again either. We have eaten for years at your other places and always been a supporter. I will continue to support you, but certainly not recommend my main course or dessert.

    I like all M’tuccis locations, but the new one on Central is the best. Great vibe, but just a bit too noisy. To be expected though, all things considered. The front windows where we sat in late afternoon get full western sun, although blinds are on the way. If you are seated there before the blinds are installed, ask to move elsewhere for a truly sensational experience.

    Servings are miniscule (Octopus salad about 1 tablespoon total). Staff smiling, but forgot most requests, such as cream for coffee. I know help is hard to find, but one manager over the wait staff could really improve many things.

    I had high hopes for this new restaurant but was pretty disappointed. The food was very average and the environment quite loud. As well, a whole portion of the restaurant is directly in the sun (absolutely boiling) and their AC/swamp cooler was inadequate to keep us cool. They need to add shades in the rotunda area. I may try this again for lunch but wouldn't think of taking out-of-towners here for a special dinner. Hopefully they get better as it is a prime location in Nob Hill.

    Excellent food in a really cool space. But not literally.....it was so hot in the restaurant that we were sweating and uncomfortable. We are M'Tucci restaurants fans but we will not return to Roma until there is air conditioning or fans!

    Place was VERY hot inside as all the reviews say. Not sure why? When it was Kelly's it was always nice and cool. Food was just average, nothing special. Somewhat small portions especially for the cost. Also super loud inside, so dont plan to have an talks over dinner. Olive Garden is a much better bet for this type of dinner.

    Anniversary Dinner. The waiter forgot the water (we asked three times); the second bottle of wine didn't arrive and we had to ask twice; one appetizer arrived and was sent back three times while the second appetizer, smoked salmon, took 15 minutes to arrive. We did want to begin our dinner together so the gap of 15 minutes was truly irritating. The manager credited us for the inconvenience, which we had not asked for but appreciated. Two pasta dishes were overcooked, gummy, and without distinct flavors. (My wife has lived in Rome). Our waiter kept asking questions over and over: would you like a pasta spoon; would you like ice for the champagne; would like anything else - no dessert menu was offered. // We had loved Bar Roma on our first trip there the previous week; but, this dining experience was very disappointing and doubly so on our wedding anniversary date. // ps. Not to be arch; but, waiters should have some rudimentary understanding of Italian food pronunciations, we think. That dumbed things down even more than all of the missteps with food delivery and quality.

    First visit amazing! 2nd visit not so much. We were seated at a table directly in the sun. At first we were gonna stick it out but it just got so hot and uncomfortable. We were able to move thank goodness! We ordered the Chicken Milanese again. It was just soo delicious last time. This time it was very overdone but edible. We will go back soon but not to soon. Maybe we will just sit at the bar since they don’t care where they seat people.
