Having lived in Portland in the late 70's, we used to eat at Roma quite often. We moved away and just returned to Maine this week and decided to try it with our friends from New Hampshire. The ambiance still gracious, the menu pleasing, a nice Italian wine list and the service outstanding. We will be back.
The food was fresh and delicious. The ambience was quiet and cozy. Overall we had a great experience. We recommend the Grill Sweet Potato, Tagliatelle Bolognese and the Goat Cheese Cheesecake.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Portland. Excellent service, great food and nice ambience.
Food was amazing, staff friendly, and the restaurant was quaint and beautiful.
I was really impressed by Roma, we were sat in a lovely nook it was a very relaxed and quiet night which I enjoyed, it felt like we had to the place to ourselves. Our server was experienced, attentive and didn’t miss a beat. We were most impressed by the food!
Excellent food and service. We'll be going back again soon.
All three appetizers, three different entrees, and two different desserts were superbly crafted and delivered. The only complaint voiced by my guest is that the portions of the entrees were smaller than expected and less than they might have been given the price. It wouldn’t take much to bump up the volume by 15% to increase the value part of the equation to the established quality.
Fantastic food and time with my wife for Valentines Day
Roma was incredible! Everything tasted great and the services was excellent
We celebrated Valentine's Day at Roma. This was our first time there. The ambience was nice. We were hoping for more salad options. The Brussel sprouts were a little over done. The steak was delicious. However, the temperature of all of the food was room temp. And the Prosecco brand they have was a little flat. The Montepulciano that they serve is great. Since the back room is so small, soft music would be nice so that you don't overhear everyone's conversations. Overall, it was a good experience.
We had a lovely meal. Room was quiet, tables spaced appropriately for covid.
The waitstaff were excellent! Our meal and desserts were sublime.
Food was fabulous. I always like a range of flavors in my dishes and Roma delivered! Just the right amount of food. The roasted beets and butternut squash pasta were fantastic, as was the bolognese. Pleasant atmosphere and great staff. Felt safe during COVID, and highly recommend.
Great little place to eat. I will be returning again
Roma is totally underrated. I’ve lived in Portland for 3 years and have always passed it by - what a mistake! The food was incredible, Matt, our server was so fun and top notch. Will definitely be back!
We went there after reviewing menu on open table to find the menu wasn't the same. It was updated some time ago to find out and never changed. So do not count on Open Table's menu of restaurant your going to. The room was a bit cold and dark, menu limited, & little pricy for what you get. No good directions as to where to park either.
After deciding what I wanted again the food was good!
celebrated an anniversary at Roma and our server was so nice! she recommended an amazing bottle of red wine and offered suggestions on the menu. quiet rooms, separated tables and 10/10 for covid precautions.
Great as always!
Can you bring back the Vodka rigatoni sometime soon??
Some of the most excellent Italian food I've ever had
Great service and food. Appreciated smaller size options on some entrees. Very covid safe.
I was very excited to eat at Roma. I arrived pleasant looking place. Server was nice and I knew what was ordering . I ordered the bologense and the waiter asked me if I wanted. bread.
My food came out , bread two pieces 1st then the pasta. When the pasta arrived I was amazed, there were like 12 pieces of pasta the protein was so small and it was $26,00 . It was good but not very feeling. I quickly got my bill, I noticed they charged me $4.00 for the bread. With a glass of wine my bill was $46.00 + tip = 54.00!
So disappointed. I will never go back!
Great service, atmosphere and food. Pasta was fresh. Drinks were great and dessert was to die fow.
Matt our waiter was awesome. Food was fantastic.
Came for a night out and enjoyed a beautiful evening. The decoration was beautiful and tasteful. The server was attentive and fun. The food was excellent at the price point, almost a steal, but would recommend to anyone looking for a nice night out and to enjoy Italian food the way it was meant to be prepared: simple and fresh.
Lovely, quiet, romantic. Food was great, service quick and attentive. Ambiance beautiful
Very nice staff (even gave us recommendations for great nearby restaurants as well as a couple of downtown stores) and excellent food.
Food was delicious and our waiter, Matt was very friendly. Felt safe during covid restrictions.
We were visiting from CT. The food was gourmet. Simple calming decor. Our waiter Matt was friendly and exceptional, giving us the history of the home. We will definitely be back.
Amazing food, atmosphere, wine , and service will absolutely return next time in Portland!! 5 star all the way keep up the amazing work!!!
Wonderful atmosphere and restaurant. Would absolutely go back!
Overall great experience at Roma. The best meal we had in Portland this weekend - the bolognese was amazing.
The restaurant is a lovely old house. The lighting is low so bring your readers and your flashlight if you’re visually challenged. The drinks we had were excellent as was the service. The meal was average and the portion size was below average especially for the price. We didn’t have appetizers and didn’t like the offerings on the dessert menu. We left the restaurant hungry and went into downtown Portland for a second meal.
We almost left because the menu only included about 5 entrees and we aren’t Italian restaurant aficionados. We decided to stay and it was one of the best restaurant experiences ever. It pays to think and eat outside the box. Entrees and desserts were awesome
The home made pasta was fabulous, and desserts were even better! The wait staff was friendly and homework the menu well enough to make good suggestions. The only drawback was a loud gathering on the opposite side of the house. Overall, I am looking forward to going back soon.
While exploring Portland we chose Roma to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and are so happy we did! The food, service, ambiance, and history of the restaurant are all top notch! The building is a converted residence that is itself beautiful. Our server, Matt, provided a nice little history lesson about the building and restaurant and, after our meal, even gave us a tour of the building - so cool! Still, the best part about Roma is the food which was phenomenal! From appetizer(heirloom tomatoes) to entrees (spaghetti and clams, ricotta agnolotti) to dessert (goat cheese cheesecake) our meal was surprisingly satisfying and tasty! A big thank you to Matt and the rest of the staff for making our special night even more memorable! P.S. don’t forget to check out the speakeasy downstairs for an after-meal drink!
Amazing. Fabulous food and service. Clean, socially distanced and comfortable.
I enjoyed the entire dining experience here! The food was so flavorful and the ambience was unique. The bread was exceptional—perfectly toasted and seasoned that it didn’t even need the olive oil. The watermelon salad with chorizo was the perfect combination of refreshingly sweet with a meaty kick. The appetizer special—the braised lamb shank with polenta—was very tasty and filling. Next time I’m in Portland I will come back for the homemade pasta and try to save room for dessert!
Our salad came after the entre
My husband’s pasta dish was about 1/4 of a bowl- not much
No presentation, no placemat( could have had paper)
Was in at 7:30- out at 8:30
Not the romantic dinner we wanted
And no bread
Amazing food. The lobster stew was delicious. Great staff as well.
