Side dishes were cold. Mashed potatoes not only cold but dry and flavorless. Steak was cooked well but the Gorgonzola sauce was basically a side of cold salad dressing to dip the steak in.

It is wonderful to go to a restaurant and know what ever you choose will be delicious. The restaurant also is observing all the safety protocols. We will only eat out at 2 restaurants in Indianapolis. This is our new favorite!

We love this restaurant because the menu is not cookie cutter and all of the food is authentic to Italy. This visit we had the bolognese with pappardelle pasta and the lollipop lamb chops and both were delicious! For dessert, we had chocolate mousse and pana cotta. The pana cotta was recommended by our server John and it was absolutely delicious! John, our server, has been our server on several occasions in the past and he is always excellent! Thank you to all for a very enjoyable evening out.

Wait staff was exceptional from the hostess stand to paying the bill. Service was attentive and kind, yet not hovering or pushy. We felt comfortable taking our time with the experience and having the owner/chef of this authentic Italian family restaurant was nice. We appreciated the smaller menu with quality selections. The wine list was also pretty thorough for a small venue. Ambience and lighting was perfect. Will definitely return to try other entrees.

This a little gem in Carmel. Everything from the level of service to the attention to details was perfect. The owner introduced herself and said to let her know if there was anything we needed. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. The food was amazing - all homemade and fresh - great flavors. Would highly recommend this.

It was our first time at Roma’s. I had been wanting to go for awhile and had not gotten around to it. The service was great! The food was very fair. I ordered the salmon and it was burnt. They took it back and brought me a new one which did not taste burnt , but had no flavor and parts of it were raw. My son ordered a pasta, which is what they’re known for, and it was ok, nothing special. Too many other choices for good Italian food. I will not be back.

Fantastic food and service. The specials were excellent as was the wine. Outside seating on a beautiful evening rounded out the experience. If they ask you if you want key lime pie for dessert, for the love oh God say yes. The crust alone will make you cry happy tears.

Ordered appetizer and two pasta entrees (the mushroom/sausage and the shrimp-scallops with lemon zest pastas). There was almost no meat/fish on the plates. The flavor was rather bland. Look, we want to give privately-run restaurant businesses out dollars during this COVID-19 time-frame, but this place was just poor. a definite C- experience.

My husband and I made reservations for our wedding anniversary. This was our first time dining at Roma Ristorante an it will not be the last time we go! The service was amazing, both servers were every nice, cheerful, and attentive throughout our meal. The gentleman gave us suggestions and answered all of our questions about the menu. Our food was delicious and the portions were bigger than expected. The food was fresh and very filling.
