Our only issue was timing. We were getting into town late so made sure to make a reservation because we wanted to be able to eat and get our daughter to bed at a decent time. The reservation was at 8 but we didn’t get seated until almost 8:40 and didn’t get our order taken until 9.
Dine at Roma dozens of times over the years and food is usually prepared perfectly.
This occasion the veal parmesan was disappointing. Veal was overcooked, dry, no taste and the cheese on top was burned and tough.
I pass this along since the experience is one-off and unusual in case there was a circumstance in the kitchen that needs to be addtessef.
Everything was good! I highly recommend!
I had pasta before and it was ok. This time I had a grilled chicken sandwich, served with fries. It was a big sandwich cut in two. The bread was disappointing, not the crusty fresh baked kind. And it would have been better served with a little house salad than the fries. The coffee was also so and so, not better than in a diner.
Excellent food, it was very busy food delay, but food was amazing... will definitely go back
Ewww, a strip mall Italian restaurant !! WRONG! This was one of the best meals I’ve had in the lehigh valley in a long time. Sun dried tomato Salmon melted in my mouth. Place was clean and low noise level.
Service was spot on! Don’t be fooled, this place
Is a legit Italian restaurant!
I always think of this restaurant when I'm craving Italian food. The service and food made for a good night.
Roma's is a hidden gem of a restaurant, tucked away in a shopping center with a tiny storefront. But inside it is spacious, and their food is consistently first rate. Their Italian dishes are especially delicious. My favorites are the chicken parmigiana and lasagna. You won't be sorry choosing this great restaurant.
Only had to wait 5 minutes for our table and the food was excellent.
We travel about an hour and fifteen minutes to visit Roma about once every two months. We have always raved about their food and bring more people with us each time. My only issue with the food with time was with the alfredo sauce; it was very salty and didn't have the normal cheesy alfredo taste we are used it. It was a more blander taste that was extremely heavy on the salt. Our waiter was fantastic (we usually have him or see him each time we are there).
Food was good, as always! We had a great server, who was quick and attentive.
The food is not near the quality that it used to be. I had Shrimp Scampi and the pasta was over cooked to the point of being mushy. The shrimp was extremely tough like it was precooked then reheated. The others in our party were disappointed as well. We will not be returning.
Been visitors to Roma since it opened years ago.
Lately the presentation and overall quality of the food has depreciated at bit therefore, the loss of one star in the ratings above.
Breads now are presented cold and with a sparse accompaniment of spiced oil unlike that once served.
The lamb shops were a wonderful entree for years, served with sides and a dollop of mint jelly. Unfortunately, the mint jelly is no longer available. How can an establishment looking for a reputation for above average food not offer mint jelly with a lamb entree. Is it too much to ask to have a jar of the jelly in the refrigerator to serve with a regular menu entree.
We still enjoy our dinners at Roma but look back fondly on the days when it was a cut above what it currently offers.
One of our favorite places,we love this place.
Food and wait staff were excellent
Did not measure up to previous experience at this restaurant.
First time trying Roma and we were not disappointed. Food was excellent and our server was the best. We will definitely go back
Too noisy. Birthday Party going on. A disappointment
I love eating at Roma. I have never had a meal that I did not like. One of my friend's that went to dinner with me had never been there before, & she raved about the food. She plans to return!
Roma never disappoints! Great place to meet with family and friends. Something to please everyone. Salmon is always delicious. Kids love the pasta. And great warm bread - yum!
Excellent pan seared scallops with garlic for a gf meal served with carrots and a salad with house made balsamic dressing.
We have been to Roma many times and sampled most of the menu. The food is fantastic and we have not had anything we did not like. The staff is fantastic. always attentive and friendly.
Four of the six of us loved the food. My husband and I always do. The one couple said their dish had too much sauce. The happily took their food home to have the next day. I believe it was the bolognese sauce.
Reservations are suggested
The food was very good, the pasta was cooked to perfection!
Drink menu had many different options and the drinks were fabulous
Service was also great!
Just an awesome place. The lunch specials are a great value and taste great! Would highly recommend!! Staff is great as well!!!
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food in this little restaurant. Terrific hot bread, good service, comfortable atmosphere. Perfect for when you want decent quality without it costing a fortune. I would definitely dine here again.
Awesome food! Although the Shrimp Cocktail should have come with cocktail sauce and not marinara, but overall, we will definitely come back.
Service was excellent, we had a group of 6. Food was fantastic, as always. Large portions.
We had been at Roma's several times and wanted to introduce friends to this resturant . Unfortunately , this time the wait staff was not on their game. They did not anticipate our simple needs without asking , for example bread, water . Was a Saturday evening, but resturant was not crowded.
We had an awesome family dinner with a pizza loving 3 year old. We all loved our food,our waitress was very attentive to our needs. My husband had the Roma Feast, I had the grilled romaine and chicken salad. Our son had the kids pizza and he loved it!! When we go to Allentown, Roma Ristorante is top on our list!!
Best Italian restaurant in the area. Not cheap, but not overly expensive. Food portions are huge. Great menu for all occasions. Service was 100%. We've been there before & we'll be back. Never have we ever had a bad experience. Great place whether you're in a suit or jeans.
My Gnocchi was good, but the Alfredo sauce my son and mother-in-law got was a little bland and watery. Caesar Salad was good and the Service was good. In the end it was not a bad experience, but it was also nothing extra special either.
Great food & service
We stopped there for lunch on Friday before heading to the National Museum of Industrial History. It's in a shopping complex, which was a bit of a surprise but the food was fabulous. All 4 of us raved about our meals.
Get the lobster bisque
This is one of our "go-to" places for good food and very friendly service. Our favorite is the SPQR salad with a piece of grilled salmon. It is beautifully presented and delicious. Other favorites are the calamari and the eggplant rollatini. Wine and beer selections are good and service is very good.
Excellent food and service. We had a great time! We will definitely be back.
I think the server was new so there were a few missteps, like forgetting to enter our to-go order, but the few times I've been here, we've been pleased with the food. It's a little pricier than some other Italian restaurants in the area, but it's definitely my first choice.
Calamari is always very good; Roma Feast is also one of our favorites. Cocktails are excellent.
Only one thing could be better - the seating needs to be updated. Booths are worn because they are so popular!
All of the Grisafi restaurants are really good! I had the chicken over linguine with roasted red peppers, asparagus and lump crab -- delicious! My mother had the homemade Italian wedding soup (always terrific!) and true to form, spaghetti Bolognese (boring, but good). The wait staff is always so pleasant. Have been here many times & will be back again, thank you!
