We come to Antica Roma as often as we can. We have tried most dishes on the menu between us and can honestly say we have never been disappointed with anything. My daughter a huge pasta lover, my sister a vegetarian & my partner who...loves his steak (there's is Amazing btw) have always been more than happy with our meal. I usually try something from the specials board which is always changing & usually has some fresh fish or speciality pasta. The staff are so wonderful & attentive and will adapt the dishes to suit your taste. We have been for Sunday roast too (which was as equally delicious), valentines & Christmas time, we eat out quite a lot but always return to Antica Roma as it never disappoints. They can get busy at weekends so try to book if you can but we have called up last minute on occasions and been squeezed in. They do offer take out on Pizza & Pasta if your craving authentic Italian but want to stay home in your PJs, we have done this a few times :) Give it a try you will be glad you did!More

Having had two disappointing previous visits to this restaurant, several years ago, we decided to give it another go and we are happy to say that it is much, much improved and we had a very pleasant evening The quality of the food was good...and the service even better, which made for a very nice time, the only downside was the music, with the right tunes, in keeping with the Italian atmosphere, the already good ambience would be very much improved.More

Place was faultless. Food was perfection, service was great, attentive and kind waiters and waitresses, food came fast. The place has a relaxing and traditional atmosphere.

We regularly eat here and it's never let us down. Bresha (sorry if spelled incorrectly) is amazing, especially with my daughter (7) who always chooses Antica Roma when given the choice to eat out. The food is always perfectly cooked, and huge portions - we...rarely finish a meal. The current wine special - Primitivo - is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly complements so many dishes. We go back again and again.More

I just had the one dish a spaghetti arrabiata - I asked for it with a bit more bite which is exactly what I got with a side of extra home-made chilli sauce. The hosts were pleasant and cheerful , the ambiance is nice and...the food tasted good so nothing here not to like.More

Not sure if they have a set Sunday menu as we have always chosen from the main menu, which is excellent. We know they do takeaways, so they may well have a set menu. It's probably best to give them a call or look on their... More

The building was a pub, but it's not a pizza place it is a good restaurant that does sell some quality bottled beers as most good restaurants do. Not what you are looking for, I assume
