These guys are to be admired and celebrated! To open a restaurant literally weeks before the pandemic - and to be surviving because of their work ethic, great attitude and willingness to serve in the street. It cannot be easy, we greatly appreciated the experience and look forward to many more evenings here.

Great service!
Enjoyed very much the outside seating.

Risotto was great and so was the calamari.
Steak was good, though definition of "medium done" was closer to well done.

I unfortunately had pretty terrible service with mediocre food. Definitely not worth the price.

I ordered Eggplant Parmesan. It was nicely done. The eggplant came with pasta. The dish was very good although the pasta was not piping hot. It was warm enough to enjoy the food, so I did not return it to the kitchen.

We dined "COVID" style, outdoors, and in a dedicated, well-constructed patio area between the sidewalk and the street. It was a Sunday night and barely a car nearby. It was a very pleasant Sunday evening dinner.

Food was good. My Mediterranean shrimp had beautiful shrimp and vegetables, but could have had a bit more flavor. I added salt and pepper. The mushroom risotto was very tasty. The outdoor patio is beautifully set up and was a happy buzzing scene. I enjoyed the meal and would recommend for classic Italian fare.

We've eaten at Roma's previously and had a very pleasant experience with reasonable service and food. Saturday evening the bus boy brought water and bread, then we waited 20 minutes for waiter to order drinks, 30 minutes to take food order, 45 min. for food to arrive. We won't be back anytime soon.

My cousin and I went Roma on 9/18/2020. We had reservations and were seated away. He ordered crabcakes and I ordered spaghetti. Half an hour later, we were informed there were no more crabcakes. Then the spaghetti arrived and my cousin got to watch me eat the whole thing before his new pasta choice for dinner arrived half an hour after that. I realize the pandemic is imposing new challenges on restaurants, but Roma can do better than that. Under the unusual circumstances, I believe the restaurant should have offered to comp my cousin's dinner. The food was good but serving people one at a time is awkward and not a good way to earn repeat business.

Outstanding service always!! Love Roma! If you want to feel at home, and feel like you are part of a family! This place is it!
Amazing food, I highly recommend the ravioli Gorgonzola, bruschetta, salads , tiramisu that hits the spot!
A must try is their dipping sauce and their bread! I can’t but crave that every time!
Big shot out to Mark and his family for always making it special for us!!

Roma offers an outdoor dining experience that feels quite safe due to the tables being so far apart and the great care that all the servers take to provide quality service. The food was fresh and all dishes quite good. As older people we don’t go out much so going there was a real treat. We will definitely go back.

The meal we ordered (Mediterranean Prawns) was underwhelming; good but not great. We ordered a Caesar salad and it was warm and wilted. They really need to work on their service. It took 30 minutes to get drinks and then my husband's glass had a huge crack down the side so he asked for a new drink. Rather than coming back right away with a fresh drink, he had to wait another 10 minutes for a replacement.. We were seated outside on the street, way out in a far corner where it was dark, even though we had a reservation. The only lighting was a small tealight candle on the table and lighting from the nearest storefront. It took a long time to get our food. When we had finished, we sat there a long time waiting to get our check. My husband finally had to get up and go inside to pay and the staff were all sitting at the bar. I had read good reviews about this new restaurant and really wanted to like it but regretfully no, I do not recommend eating here. There are other restaurants on the same street where the service is top notch.

First time to try Roma; it was OK; didn't knock our socks off. I ordered lamb chops; they were a bit overcooked. My wife had veal it was just OK. Service was decent. Sat outdoors due to covid which was nice. We like supporting our local businesses and understand everyone is going thru a tough time.

This was our second visit to Roma and I can see it becoming a family tradition. The wait staff is highly knowledgeable about their dishes. They are friendly and give excellent customer service. I got the ravioli and it was divine.

Sat outside which was nice. Server was very friendly although a little slow - the kitchen was overwhelmed. Felt very safe regarding precautions for covid19. The food was very good. We will go again.

A great Italian addition to the neighborhood. We sat outside on a very nice evening. The 4 of us shared 8 different appetizers and entrees...all were excellent try the warm cabbage salad...outstanding! Carpaccio was also a winner.
