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 !
Amazing food and friendly staff! Owner/Chef actually came to explain the menu and take our order. Highly recommend if you want quality Italian in Key West
The location was nice but service was bad. Food was blah, and overpriced. They recommended the “kids” menu spaghetti with three additional meatballs for the two kids and it tasted like a can of spaghetti-O’s. When we got the bill, the kids spaghetti was $25 with $15 in meatballs?!!! They charged us for an extra $40 meal after we asked for itemized receipt. When asked for correction, the waitress stormed off and refused to talk to us. The chef came up trying to explain mistake, and got the bill reduced correctly. We also noticed the table next to us for an extra charge on their bill after we mentioned ours. Sketchy place and would highly not recommend.
It was wonderful. Food and chef was amazing. Service was great.!!!!! Really catered to our taste and wants :)
It was the most authentic Italian food I’ve ever had in the United States. Amazing, owner very entertaining. Going back next week. Oh yum
The food was fantastic. This restaurant is real Italian, better than many Italian restaurants in NYC! Go here if you want to visit Italy while visiting key west
Location was relatively empty for busy Friday evening. Ambience felt as if they were just getting started in business. Attention to detail was parse from menus to the table settings and tattered flags on the building. No real view of sunset even from terrace. Food quality was average and wine selection light. I would give it a chance in hopes they can step up in different areas but don’t be shocked if your experience is average or less. Good news is pasta is more forgiving than some other cuisines.
My family enjoyed the entire experience at Terrace Roma!! The food was great and our waiter was exceptional!! We will definitely visit again the next time we come to Key West.
amazing Italian cuisine, just perfect. will definitely go back
After enjoying the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square, our family of six enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Terrace Roma. Our table was outside on the 2nd floor patio, so we could enjoy the beautiful weather and surroundings. The staff were very friendly and attentive all night, and the waiter had a great rapport with our children. The food was delicious, and everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.
Love this place. Hidden away just off Duval Street and up a flight of stairs. We had the cheese ravioli with a pink vodka sauce and the pasta with clams. Rivals the food we love in Italy. Worth the search.
Lovely ambiance, fantastic service and delicious food.
Amazing experience great food and personal service from the owner. We are looking forward to going back.
We ate here after watching the sunset at Mallory Square. The food was delicious. We started with a meat and cheese tray and bread. Good size and good selections. We tried the ravioli's with a meat sauce, tortellini with a cream sauce and spaghetti and meatballs. All was delicious. We ate every bite. Then we had tiramisu and key lime pie. Again delicious. My son wanted to order a second slice of key lime pie! Our waiter, who I believe is also the owner, was great. Very enthusiast and accomadating. The restaurant was surprisingly slow (in my opinion). Because they were slow they only had 2 people working... our waiter and one other person. We sat on the balcony terrace over looking Front street. we would definitely eat here again.
Pasta dish was great, but the fish was okay and over priced.
You know that feeling you get when you visit a recently opened restaurant and they just don't have it together -- and probably won't ever get it together? That was the vibe at Terrace Roma when my family visited for dinner following Key West's sunset celebration. Not worth going into detail. Key West has many great restaurants. This will never be one of them.
The food and service here are excellent. They could work a bit on the ambiance but the authentic Italian food is really very very good.
Four of us, all locals, made the reservation based on the online menu but arrived to find a very limited menu of meat, cheese, pasta and sauces with one potato side dish. Nothing green on the menu, no salads, no vegetables. The gnocchi was very good and more than I could eat but without anything to go with it, it was boring. And it was expensive, the gnocchi was $27 and pricing went up from there. The Open Table menu states entrees are under $30 but simply not true. As a local, I am totally discouraged about the cost and quality of dining in Key West, I have improved my cooking skills in the past year and will remain home. Oh! And our waitress wore her mask under her nose. Young thing, probably never sick a day in her life, but still a spreader. We received complimentary Limoncello, which was gracious. Such a great location, it was sad to see the place so empty but Duval St was busy and it was Valentines Day, so maybe they need to step up their game.
Food was marginal.
Hidden Gem. One of the best Italian restaurants I have been to outside of Italy.
Italian chef/owner from Rome takes great pride in his meals. Enjoyed red snaapper with a zesty tomato based sauce
Wonderful! Authentic! Everything was delicious and the service was great!
The food and service was excellent. Daily chef specials were amazing. Definitely on my list to return again and again.
Great food, small portions big prices, we left hungry.
Our meal and service was fabulous !!Alessandro was amazing an originally from Italy. This was an authentic Italian meal and experience. Would definitely go back!!
This place is wonderful! The owner/chef, Alessandro, took excellent care of my love and me. He treated us like family as he expertly prepared a wonderful anti pasta with a Roman flare, medium rare filet, and linguini with clams that was the best I’ve had. Thank you, Alessandro!
First night in Key West and Terrace Roma kept popping up on lists so we checked it out. The food is great. Had the buffalo caprese and spaghetti with meatballs. The BF had the lasagna and it was all great. Service also nice. It’s advertised as overlooking Mallory Square for the sunset, buuuut you can’t really see the square or most of the sunset for the next row of buildings and power lines. People passing on the street below shouting, honking horns, and blaring music is pretty annoying, but it didn’t damper the meal at all. The server/bartender makes an amazing aperol spritz. Even better, the straw is hollow pasta ;)
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!
Great Italian food, this restaurant does not disappoint in atmosphere and Italian ambiance. Food was excellent and not rushed.
Great dinner - very nice setting above the street and away from the noise. ITI Alain owner and friendly/professional staff. We enjoyed it very much and will return!
Alessandro thank for a wonderful evening great food great service love fresh pasta my brother and wives felt the same See you next trip Francesco
Great Sicilian dish!
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.
They gave us cold black tea and said it was sangaria and charged us 10$ for 1/3 of a glass
Great, authentic Italian cuisine. A nice change of pace from Key West - Caribbean restaurants which dominate the food choices. Will be back.
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.
This was our second visit and it is now a must every time we are in Key West. Service and food and wine selection are all spectacular! Cannot say enough about this place.
