This is by far our favorite restaurant in Tennessee! The food is beyond fantastic, and the menu is a wonderful combination of favorite items and unique, original dishes that change with the season. The lasagna changes daily, and is always a treat. It's hard to pick favorites, but the grilled scallops on mushroom risotto with butternut squash is certainly up... More

This is our favorite place to go when we have special occasions. Food is great. My favorite dish here is, their Salmon dish. Awesome. Great salads too!

Great food and fantastic service. The restaurant is in an old house and the atmosphere is beautiful. Very quaint. I had ravioli stuffed with crab in a lemon caper sauce and it was heavenly. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend.

The lunch special of steak on Pita was a change of pace, but it was delectable. The sweet potato fries were excellent. The service was great as was the overall atmosphere. It is one of my favorite places to eat in Cleveland.

Try their "pink sauce" on any pasta and you won't be disappointed! Informal locals call this place "Roma's". All sauces are made from scratch here and there is not shortage of great wine to go with your dish. They are more than just pasta though:)

Everything about our experience was top notch. They were busy on a Monday night with an office party but still provided great service and the food was all excellent. Best place in Cleveland.

Cafe Roma is a bit of heaven in Cleveland Tennessee. This is a local favorite and a reservation is a must, very busy! The food is authentic to our experiences in Italy. My wife had a special seafood risotto and I had capellini pancetta, both outstanding! Service was very good and the wine list is great.

A great little spot for dates, business meetings, or dinner out with friends. Classy atmosphere. Parking is usually convenient for a downtown area.
