Via Roma is always delicious! They always have wonderful additions to their regular menu. Love their bread and beans they bring out to the table while waiting on your dinner. Highly recommend.

The food was incredible, the menu has PLENTY to choose from, the service was fantastic, and it was a great setting for a nice dinner on a Saturday night. For my wife and I, we spent only $104 on 3 glasses of wine, 2 appetizers, and 2 entrees (both were specials). And had some leftovers. We will definitely be coming back soon.

First time at Via Roma. The drinks, food, and service was outstanding. It is a small space and can get loud at times - they do have a small section that is a little more secluded. They also have outdoor seating. Will definitely visit again!

We enjoyed our meal so much. The food was delicious. My Mare was a perfect work of art - tasty and masterfully plated. The hubby had the veal, and while that’s not one of my favorites, he thought it was exceptional. Would definitely return. Waverly is a wonderful little area with so much to offer.

I had requested a special table for a special evening, and they came through!! We’ve been fans of the Conte Group for over 15 years...and they always come through. Food to service...always consistent and way above par here in Charlotte! Thank you for another memorable evening!!

Mr. Conte has done it again. Having dined at all his other restaurants, we looked forward to visiting Via Roma. We were extremely pleased with our experience. Choosing to sit outside, we really enjoyed the village green feel of the courtyard at Waverly. Our polipo appetizer was great. Coming pre-sliced on a bed of perfectly cooked and seasoned potatoes, the octopus was excellent and easily shared by me and my wife. She ordered the risotto special which had 4 large scallops cooked just right. The risotto was creamy and cooked to the right consistency. Asparagus complimented the risotto nicely. I had an old favorite, spaghetti carbonara. It was great with the expected rich, eggy, creamy, cheesy sauce with morsels of pancetta and guanciale. Just wonderful.

We’ve been here several times for both lunch & dinner. We’ve always had a good meal, although it tends to be on the expensive side. This visit was for lunch & I ordered a special with 3 small pieces of fish & roasted julienne vegetables. The snapper was on the rare side & tough. It had no taste & was disappointing. The salmon was okay & the branzino was the best of the 3. My friend had veal marsala & seemed to like it.

Our meal was fantastic. The pasta of the day was incredible. Perfectly cooked, magnificently seasoned and in a
Wonderful sauce.
The veal Marsala was also quite good. Very rich sauce which complimented the meat perfectly.
Our server,Esteban, was professional and personable. He made the evening exactly what we were looking for... a well paced evening of fine dining.

This is one of my favourite restaurants ! We came especially to have the mussels which sadly did not match up to last time......too lemony and not as fresh. Rest of the dinner was very good.

Food is amazing. Cooked to perfection. The Risotto was delicious. The antipasto was presented well and high quality meats and cheeses. The wine list is spot in.

The service was atrocious. Our waiter was attentive at first asking as for drinks, appetizers entrees. Once we ordered he never came back. I had to call him over to get the check. One of the bus boys kept a asking my wife and I “would you fellas like some water”. Last time I checked my wife was not a fella.
This place does not have a lot of tables so
I would expect the staff to be on top of things and attentive to their tables. This was not the case at all.

Our dinner was delicious! I had the flounder special with crabmeat on top. However, my Caesar salad was not the same as I remembered there. It had a bit of a mayonnaise taste which I did not like.

Overall a very nice dinner with comparable service. Our party of 6 seemed to enjoy each entree ( a wide ranging variety that included scallops&risotto, veal, chicken and clams with pasta) and desserts with these minor exceptions.

Pasta special was meatball, sausage, beef and pork was generous and tasty, but a bit too salty. My wife's salmon was fine but somehow the accompanying risotto was never plated.

Mini cannolis dessert was a miss; cannoli cream did not seem to be the traditional ricotta based filling and not pleasant tasting. We left 3 remaining on the plate, Our server was gracious enough to offer a substitute dessert to take home, but we declined. Our server was professional and well versed on the menu offerings and specials.

The food is typically pretty good. A little on the expensive side, but usually worth it. However, the service is consistently an issue. I have yet to have good service at this restaurant. I go back because the food is good and it’s convenient. I’m not sure why they keep their servers and can’t get some new, decent ones.

Food was good especially the fish dishes. Two of our party ordered lasagna and thought it was too soupy rather than layers. So no on the lasagna served as a casserole.
The location and ambiance is good. We would caution that the main dinning area gets loud and for our party of eight hearing each other was difficult. In the future I would request their small dinning room for move than a party of four to being able to enjoy friends and senior relatives.
