The environment on the patio was wonderful and the wait staff very good. This made our experience great. Our friends loved their food but I thought ours was good, but not memorable.

Food is disappointing. Service was okay this time. Is usually great. Also, second time in a row we've been told no to our request for type of seating. Only when we decided to leave were we given what we asked.

We were a party of 5. Orders of chicken and eggplant parmesan were excellent, and both spaghetti and angel hair bolognese were also excellent. Service was also excellent.

I ordered the Caprese salad and was delighted how fresh it was. My wife ordered the crab cakes. Unfortunately, they were dry with no crab taste at all.
For entree, I ordered the lamb chops and my wife ordered the veal. Even though I ordered my lamb medium rare, it came medium well. It was disappointing. The veal seemed to be cooked before hand and reheated with sauce poured over it.
The dessert was fabulous. We shared a flourless chocolate cake and was very enjoyable.
Disappointing because of the inconsistency of the food. I will not take another chance and dine there, unless I hear that the chef fixed these obvious deficiencies.

The night we were there the restaurant seemed to be a victim of success. It was packed and service was horrible, w repeated apologies for lack of water, bread and wine. We asked if they were short a staff member but the answer was "no just busy"

Some of the dishes were very good but pasta dishes oversalted

Highly recommend Roma.

Food is good but the service is a bit slow.
The indoor dining is full. According to San Mateo county guide line, restaurants can only have 25% occupancy but they seem not to follow the guide line.
Besides that, we enjoy dining there and would definitely go back but only request outside table.

We really enjoyed the ambiance and live music - this was our first time out in some time since the pandemic started. Good protocols in place for safe outdoor dining. The food was good but we had a very hard time getting our server's attention.

We almost didn't stay when we first arrived. As we waited to be seated, I noticed the staff inside NOT wearing masks. The servers would frequent in and out, and each time pull their masks up or down. Even still, we decided to stay and try it out since it was our first time and dates without kids are few and far between these days.

We went for lunch and did enjoy the pasta entree. The fried Calamari was just alright, I was surprised to see friend green beans and artichokes with it. I would have liked more calamari. The Caesar salad was delicious.

Another truly delightful evening at Roma's, Saturday, January 30, 2021. The dinner was delicious and the service was superb. My girlfriend had the salmon, which was cooked exactly the way she prefers it. I had the skirt steak, which was cooked to perfection. During this challenging chapter in history, it is encouraging an inspirational to know that neighborhood venues such as Roma are still managing to offer a memorable and lovely dining experience. I commend everyone at Roma's for their wonderful work to provide a bit of sunlight our world of shadows. Thank you.

Good food and glad they were open during Covid.
Service was slow and they forgot about 2-3 things, had to ask multiple times. Understand it was busy but maybe they need extra staff

Everything was solid from the point at which we were seated. Leading up to that: there was no host to check us in for our reservation, and we had to flag two people down to be acknowledged, which took 10 minutes. No one was running the front of the restaurant, and there was zero communication. We were seated 35 minutes after the reservation time.

Would we return? Maybe - but I’d be hesitant, because I want to know my reservation matters, and I don’t want to chase people down to report that I’ve shown up for it.

Very welcoming. Seated quickly with a reservation. Very nice outdoor ambiance, we were at the front window/French door table.
Service good, good recommendation for wine. Calamari good, nice crisp. Bruschetta needed better bread and more zip. Chapters salad good, pastas had good flavor.

We were there for an early dinner, and liked the ambience of the outdoor dining. Our server was very nice and attentive, albeit very busy. As the sun went down and the temperature dropped, we had to ask 3 times to get the space heater working. In fact, other tables around us were asking too, and we all waited for the owner to finally come out to crank it up for us. He was obviously very busy too. Our food took forEVER, and our nice server could only apologize for how long it was taking. When it arrived it was hot and tasty, but by then we were sort of turned off by all of the waiting. It just seemed like the restaurant was understaffed. Everyone was working hard and running around, but they weren't able to take care of their customers. We may try again in the future, because if it could be a different experience if things were running more smoothly.

Been here for 10-12 meals -both lunch and dinners -since their opening and had been VERY happy with quality and flavor of meals- and friendly, attentive service
My entire family of 3 generations was loving it here
Most recent dinner on a Very busy Sat night was disappointing-
Everything brought to our table that should be hot -was not-
From appetizers to dessert
They need to recalibrate kitchen and service for their extra busy times
I give them a Mulligan on this one
But they do need to fix the problem

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.
