Traditional Italian restaurant, very good!. Small dining area but cozy...gets loud when full. Bar area tight & crowded. Need reservations well in advance. Portions are generous. Separate dining room for larger parties. Under new ownership so keeping an eye out.

I live in the area and Roma used to be my favorite restaurant. They changed hands about a year ago and everything has slowly gone down hill, except the prices, which have gone up considerably. Won't be back.

First time I was at Romas under the new ownership. Service wasn't as good, not because of the waitress but because they appeared to be understaffed. The quality of the food has also gone down a notch or two. What was once a favorite restaurant...More
