Roma Italian has good food and the lunch is an outstanding value. The regular menu has all the usual marinara style Italian dishes, but also quite a few seafood dishes and lighter chicken dishes.. The Lasagna is excellent and the salmon dishes are tasty as well. My husband always has the spaghetti and meatballs.which he says are the best. The... More

This restaurant is clean, has a nice environment, good service with knowledgable servers, and the food is good. The food is Italian/American. Having just been in Italy three months prior the comparison is unfortunate for them, but I enjoyed the food and environment nonetheless and had a nice time.

The food was not good but not bad either it was just plain. The rolls had very little garlic on them and the portions were small. The salad was the best part.

We are regular patrons of this restaurant for both lunch and dinner. The service is very good and unhurried, if you wish. Wine and cocktails are available. The dipping oil for the fresh rolls is a great start to a meal. The star, for us, is the pasta, homemade and spot on. The cream sauces are the best we have... More

The new location is easy to access, the parking is generous and the atmosphere "date cozy". The restaurant is clean, wait staff well trained and friendly. As ALWAYS the food is plentiously plated...leave room for Tira Misu.

We are visiting my wife's sister and her husband this week, so are getting to explore Restuarants in and around Athens. Tonight we tried Roma's. We started with appetizers ... stuffed mushrooms and calamari. The chef fixed both in ways we've not experienced. They were excellent and the portions were generous. For the main course, we each ordered something different.... More

Ordered Casa Del Mare which is supposed to have scallops, there were none. The baby clams all had sand bags full of grit. The calamari rings were obviously frozen and undercooked in temperature compared to the rest of the dish. The sauce was watery and the noodles were mushy. It was 18 dollars for that entree. However, the stuffed mushrooms... More

On or way back from San Antonio we stopped in Athens and ate at Roma’s. Very Delightful place. Waitress was prompt to seat us. We had the Stromboli and the spaghetti. The Stromboli was great, the crust was light and crisp, and the inside was not greasy. The spaghetti was great also, the sauce was excellent.
