Terrace Roma is an authentic Italian restaurant that insists on having the necessary qualities to you to feel inside Rome for a few hours. It has trained staff to make this possible, bringing a professional Chef from Roma. It has a terrace overlooking the Mallory Square, where thousands of people enjoy the sunset celebration everyday. The music that sounds at night accompanies to make the atmosphere even more pleasant and relaxing, so much that you will not want to leave.
The wine list and the bar is even very large, surely you will spend an excellent night tasting a delicious wine in the candlelight unless you prefer tasting it seated at the bar.
Buon Appetito !

Food was awful. Ambience was non existent prices too high. The Eggplant Parmesan was a soggy, oily mess. There are too many other choices. Don’t go here!!

We had a large work group of 9 and ate on the terrace. We had plenty of room and privacy. The food was excellent!

We were eating a late dinner and there was only one other family dining!
If you’re in Key West, make reservations here the menu has a variety of items to choose from.

We had the filet Mignon and it was cooked perfectly. The peppercorn sauce was an outstanding compliment to the filet.

The restaurant is hidden but worth the search!

Excellent, real Italian food. The owner and the waiter are both from Italy. The service is great. Great local ingredients like seafood prepared as if you are in Italy. Have Key Lime pie or Tiramisu for dessert. Better yet have both!

the atmosphere and outdoor seating was amazing. the service was superb and we asked for recommendations for food and were not disappointed. the owner even came up to our table to introduce himself and make sure we enjoyed everything. the perfect end to dinner was the spread of desserts that the server brought us to try for free! would 100% recommend and will definitely be going back when we return to key west!

The food was truly authentic. The Mediterranean style sauce on the grouper was a true taste of Sicily, the pasta was true comfort food, and the meatballs as good as anything i tasted in Rome.
Service was attentive, friendly and prompt.
Great value for the price. This is a classic Italian restaurant which is rare in these parts.

Pretty rooftop location and very quiet and romantic but there was a strong seaweed smell. The food was delicious but portions were a little small compared to other places we ate in the keys. Duval street is really where all the action is.

Si mangia bene, perché il cuoco è italiano.
Il problema sono i prezzi, 7 $ di acqua e 12 $ di gratuity, 25 $ per un primo piatto...
Noi abbiamo preso due primi, un tiramisù e l acqua e abbiamo speso 84,70 $, direi tanto!
La qualità però c è.

Would highly recommend Terrace Roma! The food is classic Italian style and flavors are so well developed. Their wine selection is very good and choices for plates is very close to what I see when traveling in Rome. Could not have been happier with the dinner. If they have it, get the gnocchi!

Wonderful pasta! But...need more choices for the menu. There was no veal dishes and not even any meatballs. Need some meats added. It was good if you only wanted a small portion of pasta. Not enough food for the price. Left hungry 😢. One suggestion is the menus have to go. First impression when handed the menu was a downfall. Old and worn plastic covers. So.. larger portions and need some meat dishes to go with the pasta. Otherwise it was delicious pastas.

This was the most authentically Italian meal we have had since coming back from Italy. The owner is from Rome, the cooking is the lighter simpler style that you find in Italy, rather than Italian American. We will definitely be back.

I love that the waiters are Italian. Their Italian accent just added to the experience. The food was just OK. You could tell that the pasta was homemade. I had the shrimp ravioli and it was decent . My husband had the shrimp penne pasta and it wasn’t great . The service was good.

Very basic food preparation. No options for salad dressings - a bottle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil on the table. Also, no dipping oil or butter offered. Just the bottle of oil. The salad was a deconstructed pile of lettuce, tomatoes, onions. Prices were very high for what was offered.

2 of our party ordered the “special” spaghetti & meatballs without asking price and were very disappointed to learn that we were charged $25.00 each for less than average quality (when the spaghetti and meatballs on menu were $10 less). The 3rd in party ordered the shrimp/pasta special and the shrimp were not fresh and the pasta was overcooked. The server was the only positive part of the experience. We are locals (which we noted in our reservation) and will not be going back nor recommending Terrace Roma to our friends and visitors.

Food was very good but overpriced. I got gluten free penne with grilled chicken and my boyfriend got a special (four cheese tortellini and added grilled chicken) and they charged us $33 each. We were considering getting a hotel of wine for $38 but looked up a review of the wine they offered and the bottle was only $7 at cvs/total wine/etc. Good food but don't waste your money. We didn't get a breakdown of our bill either.

Evening began with two perfectly mixed martinis, in a lovely setting on the balcony. Bruschetta from the chef was first sign that the meal was going to be good. Calamari appetizer was delicious, tender and so well seasoned. Gnocchis were divine with creamy cheese. Pasta and shrimp also wonderful to eat. Highly recommend!
