We spend the day preparing delicious, one-of-a-kind meals. Our pasta is hand made daily, and our ingredients are source locally and are always fresh!
Italy is known for more than just the cuisine, which is why Roma also offers the fine Italian wines to compliment the food. Along with regular wine selections, a Reserve List is available for those wine enthusiasts with a taste for something special.
Awesome waiter, great food. Prices were good, perfect Malbec too
This was our third visit to Roma. We were a group of 6, we were squeezed into a table that was better sized for four, but ok, the place is small. Service was generally very good, although the server spilled on the table, forgot my request for butter, and broke into our conversations pretty abruptly each time they needed to communicate with info or questions. Ok, I know they are busy, but it would be nice to give the table a second to focus on the arrival of the server.
Husband loved the evening special of pasta with mushroom and walnut sauce. I have had the Bolognese pasta before, which is great, but went for something new this time, the pasta with pancetta and I think Pecorino. Unfortunately I did not care for that at all, it came across as heavy and unappetizing, no particular flavor.
Others had good things to say about the gnocchi. Dessert gelati were enjoyed, the warm volcano cake was comforting with a smooth, deeply chocolate few moments for your mouth. It’s small, u might order it with gelato.
Dinner for three of us was $200 by the time the tip was added. Seems too pricey for a pasta dinner. There were four glasses of wine involved, salads, and dessert. It’s your call.
Food and service always great at Roma. I recommend the tortino appetizer. Also like the new table arrangement.
First time for all 6 in our party with varying tastes, but most of us are self-proclaimed foodies. We all chose some form of pasta since our excellent, very professional and experienced waiter explained that all the pasta was made that morning...each and every day. We were not disappointed. My food critical husband, whose birthday we were celebrating, says Italian is his favorite food, which is why we went Italian. He proclaimed it to be the best Italian he has ever had. Thank you Roma. We will most definitely be back!
My wife is 100% Italian and says this is the best Gnocchi she has had in 35 years that we have lived in Indiana.
A high-quality wonderful place to have a good Italian meal. Has recently been redone inside and I thought the service and the quality of food was superb.
Roma is our favorite restaurant in Carmel! Always wonderful food and service. Very reasonably priced as well
Paula was fabulous. Gnocchi is to die for. Fabulous dinner
Paula, as always, makes the evening special. Excellent food. The rack of lamb in particular. Everyone at the table enjoyed themselves.
Delicious homemade pasta! All of the dishes we enjoyed were superb. Can't wait to go back!
The best Italian in Indianapolis or Carmel. This is first class.
One of the best meals we have had at Ristorante Roma. New appetizer was the burrata with black olive pesto-excellent! So wonderful to see a local restaurant filled with diners!
First time to Roma! Our server, Max, did a great job walking us through the different homemade pastas and providing recommendations. The pastas were fantastic! The gnocchi - small and delightful. The Pappardelle was a favorite. Caesar salad was light and flavorful. We also enjoyed the calamari and polenta. We will definitely return.
Always fresh pasta with outstanding sauce. Excellent service as well.
Small authentic Italian restaurant. The owner/chef is from Rome and he has most definitely bought his Italian cooking secrets with him. The food was some of the best, if not the best, I’ve ever had. The experience is pleasant, but I think they could definitely make some major improvements to the dining area. It is pleasant and romantic for a little time away. So, overall it was a good experience. Thanks.
The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. The food was excellent and authentic. It was a lovely evening and all of us plan to go there again.
Food authentic, and quite good. Service was excellent.
Our server Max and the rest of the staff provided an amazing experience and dinner for my wife's birthday. This was our first time there and won't be our last. Pasta was fresh, the seafood pasta my wife and I had were both amazing, with the shrimp and scallops cooked absolutely perfectly, and everything was just super delicious. Highly recommend for any date night.
Our favorite restaurant! The food is always delicious. The service is always outstanding.
We had a wonderful meal. Paula our server gave us great advice. They had a nice wine list, and the pasta is made fresh each day in house. The food was great and so was the service. We will return.
Always enjoy eating here. Service is great. Save room for gelato. Plenty of free parking right outside.
We come here for above average Italian food and great service.
John was an excellent server and very knowledgeable of the menu.
Wonderful Italian dining in Carmel, Indiana. Homemade, no unnecessary ingredients, the taste is excellent!
Have eaten many times at this authentic Italian restaurant tucked into Monon Square shopping center, near Soho coffeehouse. The food and service are outstanding. Parking is free and practically on the doorstep. Be sure to save room for the house-made gelato. It's great.
We have not had a good spaghetti and meatballs meal at an Italian restaurant in a while. All the Italian restaurants in our area were booked when we were looking at 6pm on a Saturday night but this place had openings. We liked the atmosphere. For a strip mall location they decorated the interior nicely. There was birthday dinner going on and they were loud, which is ok, but the location does not absorb sound well and makes it hard to hear your dinner partner. The waitress was not too friendly though. They have NO FULL BAR, just beer and wine. Bummer. And they DID NOT have spaghetti and meatballs. What? The waitress suggested the fettuccini bolognese instead. I do not suggest it after ordering it. Hardly any meat in the sauce (4oz's according to the waitress) and small portions. Wife had a special for the evening with bits of tenderloin with choice of pasta and a mushroom sauce. Very bland and also small portion. After paying $83 for two people and not enjoying the meal we will look elsewhere to the other fine Italian establishments in the area.
My favorite place!
The food and the service were perfect
We are becoming regulars at this wonderful restaurant. This time I had the duck and it was on a par with the best duck I ever had, in a high-end restaurant in Paris many years ago. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the gnocchi. We will be back again very soon!
Our waiter was great. Food was excellent. We had a mix of stake, pasta and veggies. It was all very good. Pasta is hand made and it seems to taste better !!!
The shrimp, scallops fettuccini was very good. However, the gnocchi was undercooked. Other than that, it was pretty good.
Overall great experience. Good family friendly restaurant. Don’t let the location deter you. Highly recommend, especially with family or a romantic date.
Excellent authentic Italian cuisine.
Service was excellent. Our server was polite, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable of the menu, preparation, and general info about the restaurant and chef/owner. Food was delicious. We all ordered something different, appetizers, salads, desserts. It was all amazing. Can't wait to eat here again. A little pricey if you're on a budget but well worth it.
Fav restaurant in Carmel. Absolutely love Roma. Delicious food every time. The chef Luchio is fabulous! Max provides phenomenal service and has been there as long as we’ve been going. Highly highly recommend
Expecting a very good meal from the reviews, but that was not our experience. The Tortino Al Salmone appetizer was quite tasty. The Ceaser salad had very little parmasan, and the dressing was tasteless. The Pappardelle di Mare Al Limone was almost too salty too eat, and I love salt! I ate the shrimp and scallops and left most of the pasta. The Fettuccine Bolognese was ok, but certainly nothing special. We didn't even bother trying dessert after the disappointing first courses. Perhaps we hit them on an off night for the chef, but we won't be returning.
Roma is probably our favorite restaurant, and this was the best meal we've ever had there. The lamb chops were tender and perfect, and the duck was even more succulent than I had hoped.
Great place for Italian food in Carmel. Nightly 'specials' are always a good bet. If possible, ask for Paula---she'll make you feel right at home.
Delicious as usual!
After our 4th visit to Roma Ristorante, it continues to be our favorite restaurant in the Indianapolis area. Chef Romani is a fabulous cook and his menu offerings are wide-ranging. His extended family helps run the restaurant and they create a welcoming and truly enjoyable ambience. Don't miss this satisfying experience!
