We came across La Roma on here, and made the short journey out from the centre to see what it was like. First impressions were not good. It was 7.30 on a Friday, and there was only one other customer there, who left as we arrived. The place had a faint but distinct whiff of stagnant water to it, and the bright lights, background radio and plastic seating added little to the ambiance.
But never mind, the food was excellent. Two separate past dishes, prepared on the spot, washed down with a bottle of Sicilian house red that was much more than just quaffable. The desserts were also freshly made and beautifully presented - I'm not normally swayed by the 'drizzling on a plate' style, but the chef had gone to so much trouble that for the first time ever I wanted to take a picture of my food! The patron [I assume 'Mario' but we were not introduced] was charming - and explained that they do not normally open in the evenings, but make a point of staying open if there are customers to serve. Our two course meal, with wine and coffee, came to just £37.
Highly recommended, but possibly as a lunchtime not evening venue.
