Ristorante Roma is an unpretentious place that simply serves good, authentic Italian food. It has never been noisy when I've been there, and the food and service have always been excellent.

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...More
