Just walking past and decided to stop and eat, sat outside taking in sites and reading menu. We were pleasantly surprised at choice of items, there is a HOT! pizza with choice of how hot do you dare. My wife had Salmon on bed of pea risotto with prawns, I had hot chicken calzone which was spicy hot and the best calzone I've ever tasted.
They also carry an excellent selection of microbrewery bottled beers, I would recommend Joker.
would we go again, most definitely.

Everything just ok, nothing out of the ordinary.
Service was a bit hit and miss, food was alright. We were a bit cramped and very warm. The floor was slippy in several places.
We wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.

I had booked my birthday meal in Veccia Roma on Sunday past after hearing good reports about the food. I know that the blues festival was in Warrenpoint over this past weekend and the town was very busy. We were seated straight away which was great but that was were the good service ended. We waited about 20mins to have our order taken ( not the end of the world). We finished our starters before our drinks arrived. We waited 30mins on glasses for our water which were then slammed down on the table after we asked for them for the 3rd time. Our individual drinks were just sat anywhere on the table the waitress didn't even ask who owned which drinks. We waited for over an hour to have our mains cleared from the table and this was only after we asked for them to be cleared and this was met with a roll of the eyes. By this stage we didn't have patience to order desserts. We were reminded constantly of how busy they were but why were the waitresses standing around doing nothing when all we were looking was glasses for our water. I understand it was a busy day but the customer service was severely lacking which is a pity because the food was delicious so i would eat here again but perhaps i would order it as take away.

For a change we called in here last night, i had the ox cheek which was very good, my wife had surf n turf ( sirloin steak with prawns ) medium well ,which was not so good, it was served in a sea of garlic butter the steak was realy tough ,stringy and so dry while overpowered with garlic butter.
Staff were fine, but wont be back

We chose here because of the mid week meal deal shown on website for our friend's birthday. However, on questioning the girl who initially served us we were told that the website was the 'old menu' and it was now in fact, the new price. When we pointed out that we had just checked it a few days ago (before booking) we were told "well it doesn't just update overnight" (because apparently they are in the process of updating?). I have checked tonight and the price STILL remains on display. Our problem wasn't insomuch the price which was only a couple of pounds each, but the fact that it was brushed aside. But worse than that was the horrible and rude way which the girl spoke to our friend simply because she questioned why our query wasn't properly answered (she had said she would check and get back to us regarding the price). It was totally uncalled for and what is more, ruined an otherwise lovely night with really good food. We were stunned into silence and felt so uncomfortable when she snapped at our friend "no need to be so rude"...when our friend had clearly NOT been rude. It was so embarrassing and unbelievably unprofessional. We will never be back. The seven of us left after our meal and didn't bother going to the bar as we'd planned. And on another note, our table was pre booked and even though the restaurant wasn't busy, our table wasn't ready. That in itself is no problem, but the waitress just walked away and told another waiter to go and put the tables together leaving the very polite waiter to explain that it would just take a minute. Thankfully the other staff were all pleasant. Such a pity we won't be back again to enjoy the very nice food.
