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.
In town for the weekend. Saw this on open table and took a chance. This chef has a special touch. Everything was yummy. We will be back!
We actually invited a couple who are good friends to join us and they loved the unique presentation of the dishes they ordered compared to the Italian restaurant they have eaten at a few times since moving here late last year. The waitress, Karen, was excellent, and explained each dish she was asked about in detail and how Roma's fare differs from the restaurant our friends told her they last visited, with us, in fact. So it was a new experience for them, but my wife and I have come here several times and return because we love the cozy atmosphere, the outstanding service, and the delicious food.
Excellent, fast service - it was a little over an hour till we needed to leave for a show and without rushing us or our food we had time to share one additional glass of wine! Great quality and service! Well worth considering for your next nite out!
Food was delicious and could tell it was homemade. The server was so knowledgeable and made the experience so wonderful. The table felt private from the rest of the restaurant and it was so cute and quaint. Wine was delicious. Definitely would suggest for date night!
Service was great, food was excellent! When crowded Roma is pretty loud, it wasn't very crowded when I was there last. All in all, I love Roma.
Most authentic Italian meal outside of Italy! Always the best service and cuisine!
We had a wonderful dinner prior to going to the Palladium for a concert. The food was outstanding. Overall, the restaurant was pretty crowded.
Roma is a great privately owned restaurant, the food is authentic Italian, a wonderful wine list. The restaurant only serves beer and wine, so if you drink spirits only be aware before you come in. Well worth the trip to Carmel and an added bonus, easy to walk to the Palladium for the concert. Highly Recommend!
Service is fabulous.
I have never had a terrible meal at an Italian restaurant, but this was. For Valentine's day they had a set menu with two options for main course, neither of which was pasta. Neither was good, as we tried both. The appetizer was a strange cold poached pear with cheese and one cracker. The second course was one large filled ravioli that wasn't good either. This is not a quiet cozy place to eat. There are many wonderful Italian restaurants in the Indy area and this isn't one. Oh and to top it off we were charged $65 EACH plus drinks. Almost $200 with tip.... very disappointing.
The St Valentine's set menu was wonderful! We always have a great experience at Roma's!
Once again a perfect Valentine’s dinner at Roma with our waiter, Max. Excellent service and perfect Valentine’s menu! The only restaurant to dine at for Valentine’s!
Roma Ristorante is our favorite place to go as a couple for a romantic evening with fine dining and fine, affordable wines served by an attentive, knowledgeable staff. We’ve also enjoyed going with friends and taking out-of-town guests as a special treat.
Pasta is handmade and the sauces are delectable; grilled shrimp is a favorite; and beef, pork, and lamb dishes are always perfectly seasoned.
Perfect place for my husban’s 50th birthday with our kids. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. She selected the perfect wine for our meal. The homemade pastas and sauces are exceptional.
2nd time here and brought my whole family, all absolutely loved the food! Even my 18 year old son commented that it was the best Caesar Salad he’s had.
As usual, we had delicious food and wonderful service. This is our favorite restaurant in Carmel!
Pretty expensive for the food. Pesto was bought from Costco and not home made. Service was good, but the food is not worth the money. Convivio is much better value.
My husband and I went recently for the 2nd time. The first time we were headed to the Palladium for a show and they were careful of our time. This time we were late and called and they were flexible for us. We live in Columbus, IN, and were grateful we did not have to change restaurants. The food was excellent as before. We each had one of the specials. Service was very good.
My wife and I just love going to Roma's Ristorante. This place is a GEM and anytime we have friends in from out of town, taking them to Roma's is a real treat. Still, that doesn't prevent the two of us from treating ourselves to a wonderful meal, with some of the best Italian food, we've ever had. The staff at Roma's are always genuine in their desire to make every experience one that wants us coming back.
What a find! I look for neighborhood gems serving up authentic food made scratch from excellent quality ingredients. I feel extremely lucky to have found Roma's as they ticked off all the boxes above as well as excelling in service. My husband's handmade pasta had amazing flavor and my sea bass was light and flaky. Wine list was an unexpected bonus. Quality of their after dinner coffee service was also a nice surprise. We will come again, and again, and again!
By far our favorite local Italian restaurant.
Hand crafted, made with loving care, Italian dishes. Also visit their Mamma Mia gelato shop for the tastiest gelato and fresh brewed coffees, hand made pastries, etc. Highly recommend both!
We went Christmas Eve and the service was superb. One of the meals was a little fishy though and although most of the food was good it was pretty expensive for what we got.
Our favorite independent restaurant. Lucia, the owner, is a terrific chef and a wonderful host. Max, John and the rest of the staff are superb. The homemade pasta made fresh daily is delicious!
Absolutely wonderful—easily the best kept secret in Carmel (maybe Indy)!
The pasta was on par with, if not better than, pasta in Italy, and ingredients are obviously impeccably sourced (see, e.g. burrata). Cannoli were also perfect.
Service was attentive but not overbearing, and the experience was fantastic. We will be back!
Have dined at Roma many, many times, and it's always a pleasure. The service is always pleasant and professional. Chef/Owner Lucio Romani is a maestro in the kitchen. Try one of his unique appetizers. And don't leave without sampling some gelato; Lucio makes it himself. The place is small, so it helps to make a reservation. There is a large, free parking lot just outside the door.
Our visit on a Saturday night was for my husband and I to celebrate the Christmas holiday along with a show at the Palladium following dinner. This was our first time at Roma. We enjoyed the food and ambiance very much not to mention the close proximity to the Palladium. What we didn't enjoy in the least was our server. For the price we paid ($100 for the two of us), we should have received far better service. Her lack of etiquette left a bad taste in my mouth.
Authentic Italian food and nice wine list. Helpful server, quiet ambiance.
My only complaint was the table of 7 seated next to us. There was an extremely loud and obnoxious person who made it very difficult for the 4 of us to carry on a conversation. Once they left, it was very pleasant.
Terrific food, well presented, knowledgeable staff. This was our first visit but will not be the last.
Great service and excellent food. The freshly made pasta is authentic Italian and can’t be beat. Also loved the cannelloni freshly made every day.
Ok, not bad, not great, just ok. Hurrays is pretty awesome though!!
Overall, quality of food was good - pasta bolognese was very good as usual. Unfortunately the salmon special that i ordered because its sounded so good on creamy polenta came out served with a side of roasted potatoes - servers were not aware of the change, and although Salmon was cooked well, it definitely wasn’t the same as a nice polenta. They said sorry, but no offer to replace, discount, etc.....not that they’re required to do anything, but would have been a nice gesture.
Service wasn’t great; food was very good, noise level was high.
Great authentic food. Wonderful staff and home mage gelato, as good as you will get in Rome. Everything made at restaurant with fresh pasta. Always a great special . Make a reservation on weekend as they get busy.
Very good food, small selection of items though. We were advised it was because of the hand made pasta. Prices were quite high though, be prepared for a $70+ bill for two.
The food and service were good, however the price was high for what you got. All dishes ala carte.
We enjoyed a very nice meal. The salmon entre' and the lamb chops were both excellent. The server was very helpful and patient as we chose a wine by the glass. Everyone was friendly.
Great hidden gem in Carmel.
This restaurant is authentic Italian with an owner/chef from Rome. Everything is made in-house with nothing from a can or box. The food is excellent and just the right amount which is a welcomed site in Indy.
Seating is limited so recommend making a reservation, especially on the weekend.
Very nice atmosphere and delicious food. Authentic Italian experience.
