I have been a 'semi regular' customer here for many years and highly recommend this establishment. The company of my wife, a bowl of pasta, all washed down with a fine coffee and I'm in heaven. Never change Cafe Roma. We love you just the way you are . . .

When we walked in at 6 pm it was almost empty, and I womdered why I'd bothered booking....pretty soon it was obvious that I was right to. Just like us, the place quickly filled up with the pre-theatre crowd. The atmosphere inside is friendly and comfortable, the decor italianesque di campo, the staff are extremely friendly and professional. The food... More

This place offers a variety of quality pasta dishes and on the multiple visits I've made here I've never been disappointed. Staff are friendly and the coffee is good. Only downsides are the uncomfortable seating and the pizzas aren't given the care and attention the pasta dishes are.

I visit Cafe Roma maybe 3 times a year? With girlfriend, work friends and family also. It's a really well run family restaurant. Serving authentic home made Italian food! Good pizza and pasta available, plus a good lunch time deal. All deserts are made by them! Great prices and good customer service and decor. It's not a high end restaurant,... More

Ate here yesterday, We were looking for a pre-theaatre meal before visiting Curve and happened to find this little restaurant. Even though it was only 5.30 it already had people eating there. It was warm and cosy inside and staff were very friendly. The food was incredibly well priced. We had starters and pasta to follow which were declicious. There... More

Simple Italian food at its best in a friendly, family run, no frills establishment. This is the place to eat in Leicester for tasty, well cooked dishes. For the price you can't go wrong. If it appears busy there is always room upstairs. Eat here you won't be disappointed.
