A Little Piece of Italy at Roma

Savor authentically Italian cuisine or take it home with you at this delicious ristorante and marketplace in one


If you’re looking for an authentic Italian meal, Roma is the spot to visit. The restaurant is owned by Chef Domenic Ierfino, and first opened its doors in 1983. Since then, it has not only been a hotspot for sit-down meals, but has become well-known for its marketplace and catering service.

The market offers a plethora of options for any palate, including cold and hot subs, pasta, brick oven pizzas and more. If you’re in the mood for a sit-down special, the restaurant menu is just as extensive. The courses are divided into a traditional three part Italian dinner. Choose from selections like Shrimp Fiorentina, Chicken Saltimbocca, or Grilled Beef Tenderloin paired with a side dish such as the Melanzane a Funghetto, or fried eggplant.

For pasta lovers, Roma has everything from potato gnocchi and fettuccine to risotto and classic penne. On Fridays and Saturdays, enjoy your meal along with live music and entertainment.

If you have a big event coming up, be sure to check out Roma’s catering options to really impress your guests, or host your event inside their luxurious, Roman style banquet hall, outfitted with dramatic high ceilings and elegant decorations. Whether you’re picking up a quick bite from the marketplace or sitting down for a classic Italian meal, Roma’s traditional and hearty cuisine is sure to leave you satisfied.
