    Really relaxed friendly place and the food was great. My 19 year old grandson was most impressed! Must have been good lol

    Lovely meal. Excellent choices. Shame the booking online wasn’t sent through to the cafe. Luckily plenty of free tables

    We have been here several times and had great food. This time, unfortunately, it was only average. Nice people, good service, good price but disappointing. Perhaps they have changed chef?

    Fabulous value as always...definitely recommend..

    I really love this place. It is fairly small with a great atmosphere. Staff were friendly and attentive but do not intrude. We went for a pre theatre meal which was served quickly allowing us plenty of time to enjoy it. Can recommend it.

    The meal was spot on and delicious. The restaurant could do with being a bit warmer. Lovely staff and friendly. Would definitely dine there again.

    Although this is the first time I've booked online, I frequently visit Cafe Roma with friends and always feel welcome.
    The food is always well presented, very tasty and extremely good value for money.
    The staff are polite, professional and friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cafe Roma to anyone.

    A lovely meal with friendly staff.

    The food and service was excellent as always, fresh and tasty and very good value for money.

    A lovely warm welcome as always at Cafe Roma followed by tasty honest Italian food. This place is a little Gem.

    As usual a fantastic freshly cooked meal a really great place run by a lovely family.

    Lovely family meal to celebrate my birthday

    Small friendly restaurant. Excellent food and service. Had a lovely relaxing pre theatre dinner once again.

    Delicious Italian food as always, we had the lunch time pasta special which can't be beaten for value. The Restaurant has a friendly & informal atmosphere perfect for lunch with friends.

    Lovely festive Christmas menu.

    We had a fabulous meal and the service was spot on! We had a few people running late and they were so understanding and accommodating! Will definitely visit again!

    Our first visit to Café Roma but we will certainly go again. A really tasty, good value lunch.

    We had a lovely relaxed pre-theatre meal, the staff remembered us from our last visit which was nice, the food was good honest tasty Italian, just what you would expect & very reasonably priced, we will definitely be returning again soon.

    Friendly and attentive staff. Food was tasty and came along quickly. A great merlot!

    This restaurant is a little gem, it has a lovely friendly feel, the food is great tasting basic Italian. Would definitely recommend.

    Excellent meal at Roma Cafe, beautifully cooked and served. Welcoming atmosphere enhanced by discreet live background music. Very convenient for Curve & car park. Anticipate returning soon!

    Booked a table for two, we were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. The waitress took our drinks order and gave us time to look at the menu. The food we ordered was plentiful and tasty and was served to us in good time. We had two courses each and shared a bottle of wine and the bill came to £41, bargain. Will definitely return!

    Excellent meal and service. Very nice atmosphere!

    Booked for 3 of us pre- theatre meal. Arrived earlier than booked which wasn't a problem, waitress shown me to the table whilst I waited for the other two. The table could've been a little bigger as we like to share our orders but we managed ok. The food was delicious with a friendly atmosphere. We had Wine, three courses and coffee, my friend has a Curve card and we got 15% off the food, the bill came to £65 an absolute bargain. Will definitely return.

    We had a delicious family meal at Roma Cafe. The menu had lots of choice; salad, pasta, pizza and meats. The lunchtime offer was excellent value and the food freshly prepared and delicious with generous portions. The service was prompt and friendly, overall a great family early teatime option. Would also be great for evening meal, child free!

    Roma Cafe has a lovely, friendly atmosphere. Freshly cooked, homemade food at very reasonable prices.

We say…

Centrally situated, Roma Café Bar and Restaurant is a charming, independent Italian eatery with a lot to offer. Founded in 1996, the family run business has almost 20 years of experience in serving everything from cakes and traditional desserts to calzone and Polpette Picante. Located just a few minutes’ walk away from The Curve Theatre and St Martins Square Shopping Centre, Roma is the ideal place to dine after a busy day shopping, or to fill up before an evening of theatre.

The interior is cosy and simple, blending a personal and relaxed feeling of family with attractive elements of rustic Italian charm. Of an evening, the surroundings make for a perfect venue for an intimate candle-lit meal of catch-up with friends. For lunch, the restaurant is the ideal place for a bright lunch time treat!

The extensive menu is full of fantastic choices, bringing together the best that Italy has to offer. For your evening meal, start with something bursting with flavour such as the crusty, toasted Bruschetta Mista, topped with mozzarella, fresh tomato and onion. For something a little different, go for the traditionally served Parma ham and melon – a tasty and refreshing dish. There is plenty to choose from the main menu too, offering a wide range of homemade pizzas, pastas and authentic Italian specials. Seafood lovers should try the gorgeous salmon, served in a cream and tomato sauce with perfectly cooked prawns. There is plenty on the menu for vegetarians too, such as Melanzane Parmigiana – grilled layers of aubergine, parmesan cheese and tomatoes, baked to finish.

Treats are aplenty at Roma Cafe Bar and Restaurant, with a variety of freshly made Italian pastries, cakes and traditional desserts to sample for lunch or choose for dessert. Try the Coffee and Almond Sponge for something truly special, layered with coffee icing and topped with cocoa, Amaretti biscuits and coffee beans.

A wonderful place to dine if you are a fan of home-cooked, authentic Italian cuisine, Roma Café Bar and Restaurant, Leicester is a hidden gem among the bustling streets of the city and well worth visiting day or night.
