Roma is under renovation right now but we ate here a couple of months ago and the food is wonderful! The service and the menu reflect the care that is put into preparing an environment for a lovely , intimate evening out.

We visited for dinner during our brief vacation in Portland. The risotto was hearty but uninspired, and the halibut special of the day was good but not stellar. The real star, though, was the lemon sorbet frozen into lemon halves: super delicious and plenty for two. We found the restaurant itself crowded, with the tables very close together (such that...

My wife and I stumbled upon Roma Ristorante on its opening day and have returned regularly ever since. In Portland's foodie culture, a chef or restaurant that consistently delivers excellent quality and subtle variations, receives little attention or accolade. Right now the foodie culture is somewhat about pairing two or more food items you and I would never dream of... More

After seeing a list of Top 10 Italian restaurants in Portland, my husband and I decided to give this a try - especially after two of our favorite Italian places had closed. Wow. So, so, SO good! We were fortunate enough to get a table, not realizing reservations were usually needed. (We were out for an early dinner.) Everything was... More

Food was well prepared. Service friendly and efficient even though the place was packed. Noise level bit high due to the small space.

This storefront restaurant, located across the street from the historic First Presbyterian Church, is basically a room full of tables and chairs with a couple of servers coming and going from the kitchen. The menu is basic for a real Italian restaurant (as opposed to a pizza parlor) and the prices are appropriate for a sit-down restaurant. I ordered spinach... More

Our table had the Gnocchi al Quattro Formagi, Spaghetti con Vongole and Spaghetti Frutti di Mare. All dishes were very tasty. Finished off with a Lemon Sherbet that was equally sweet. Excellent place for some pasta.

Went with friends before seeing a play. I had lived in Portland for 25 years and never heard of it! I had the beef with arugula and it was divine! Very good service.

I would have given this restaurant a five, or even five plus, had the service, which was slow, especially since it was really early on a Tuesday evening. But my Fettucine ai Frutti di Mare was truly wonderful, some of the best pasta I've had anywhere, including Italy. I started the meal with an orange and fennel salad simply dressed... More

Very homegrown Italian food. Small restaurant that makes you feel like you are in Italy. The lamb ravioli special was amazing. All the pasta dishes we all 8 had were authentic . Bread and salad very good and with in a reasonable price. Been here before and will come back. There were also wines by the bottle that did not... More
