We celebrated a birthday dinner at Roma and it was fantastic! The service was top notch, the drinks were top notch, and the food was out of this world! It’s so sweet that this is a family owned authentic Italian restaurant.

Wonderful service and freshly made pasta. They are currently in process of getting their license to serve liquor - now they only have beer and wine. I look forward to a full bar being available. I really enjoy the restaurant. It is a jewel here in Carmel.

Wanted to ring in the New Year with dinner at Roma Ristorante! We made the right decision. The food was excellent coupled with impeccable service. It was a night to remember thanks to the Chef and staff. Everyone's food was prepared to perfection and we topped it off with the chocolate covered lemon Panna Cotta for desert. Absolutely delicious.

Needed better cutting utensils such as a steak knife to cut the lamb off the bone. My lamb was uncooked. Overall our dining experience was very good.

Took my wife to Roma for her birthday. We both enjoyed the experience. Easy to social distance here. The Roma staff have placed tables more than 6 feet away from each other for a nice private (and safe) experience. The food and drink were excellent. One of my more enjoyable meals in quite awhile. Roma is one of a few excellent Italian restaurants in the Carmel area.

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.

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.
