It is an exciting time in Detroit!
Chef Guy Pelino has been a part of the italian cuisine culture here for over 25 years. He is thrilled that Amore da Roma will be able to contribute to the revitalization of Eastern Market while maintaining the history of the original Roma Cafe in both recipes and atmosphere. We look forward to serving all generations as they come to Detroit to continue their traditions, celebrate their heritage and create memories in a city that is full of diversity, culture and pride.

    Good basic Italian style dishes. I found everything from app, soup and entree very salty. It was an anniversary but not noted or recognized. That was disappointing. Bar looked like a great hang. Service was good.

    Waiter is top notch. Flirted a bit too much but didn’t get cringe worthy. Entrees we’re just ok. Waiter replaced my entrée with another and it was delicious. Caprese appetizer best I’ve ever had. Wine list is great. This place gets rave reviews. I was excited to try it. I love authentic old school Italian dishes but I’ve had better. However, their spaghetti meat sauce is truly amazing!

    Sam is the best! Our salads were terrific, as always. The frog legs and veal piccata were wonderful. We've been dining at the Roma Cafe for 40 years and it is our favorite restaurant anywhere! Glad to see the new management has not changed the menu...stick with what works!

    Ordered calamari for appetizer and it wasn't what I expected. It seemed more like a frozen boxed version. The Pickerel and spaghetti side along with the spinach and garlic was very good. The spinach was fresh. Our server Dante was friendly and attentive.

    Born and raised in Detroit, I had never eaten at this famous Italian establishment before. It did not disappoint! We were seated promptly. The service was friendly and fast. And the food was delicious! The tables are close together, and the noise level was quite loud at times--but we loved our dining experience!

    I did note that we were celebrating my husbands 70th birthday when I made the reservation. There was no mention of it by our waitress though. Calamari was prob best I have ever had! Meat sauce ravioli great! Eggplant parm had way too much melted cheese on it though.

    The food was barely ok but the service was very slow. The fish in seafood pasta was not edible and the bread was stale. The waiter was polite and friendly. The ambiance was average at best. Overall I will not recommend this restaurant my friends.

    Extremely slow service even when not very busy. We watched our waiter take care of 3 other tables while ignoring us. When we talked to the manager who came up to us and asked how our dinner was, she said “Well, what can you do.” Will not be returning. Poor management and poor service.

    First time back in a number of years, still has charm, wait staff was fine, a little impatient, bread basket has gotten leaner, but the pasta was very good even if the portion size was smaller than I remember. A good meal and a good place to meet a friend for conversation because the noise level is comfortable.

    The calamari was bland and breading was like the Burger King chicken fries. Soup was equally unimpressive. My chicken picante was rubbery and all I could taste was pepper. My wife’s fettuccine tasted and looked like pasta roni. I felt bad for the waitress as she could see we weren’t enjoying our meal yet they only offered a cup of coffee which was terrible as well. My bill was $115 with a $50 bottle of wine.

    This place is too old and the food is beyond tired. It’s okay to be old and nostalgic. This place is just old and tired. Run down. The food is very out dated and just not good quality. I wanted it to be better but it’s just not good. Definitely not the restaurant it used to be.
