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.

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 waiter John was knowledgeable and attentive - the chef/owner Raphael was courteous and talented - the food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Add a fantastic bottle of wine and an amazing ambience and you have a wonderful evening at Roma Ristorante! Also, for dessert, the best Key Lime pie EVER! What an excellent way to celebrate a birthday!

This is the best Italian around, starting with handmade fresh pasta daily and amazing appetizers and specials to compete with their already amazing menu. Appropriate portion sizes. Soft Italian music in the background and very clean atmosphere and practices for COVID-19, including diners must wear masks when not seated at their tables. The wait staff never misses a step, and be sure to enjoy the hot bread! After we discovered this place, we have stopped going to any other Italian restaurant in town. This cannot be beat!

Absolute best Italian food in the Indianapolis area. Try the Bocconcini di Prugne for an Antipasti, it is fabulous. My wife had the Caesar salad with anchovies and raved about how flavorful it was. I had the Caprese salad which was wonderful. I had the special and my wife had the Pappardelle Di Mare al Limone, both were prepared to perfection. Our waiter John was nothing short of excellent. A perfect way to celebrate our anniversary! Thank you Lucio and staff for a wonderful evening!

Fantastic experience. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the ambience perfect for the mood. There had been a slight hiccup with our reservation, no problem, just a bit of confusion. Still, the chef/owner came out to chat and apologize personally. This place is well run, customer focused, and delicious. Well be back for sure.
