Went here with a friend, had never been before and was pleasantly surprised with how lovely the meal was! Delicious penne arrabiatta and garlic bread! Lovely calm atmosphere and friendly staff. Will definitely come back in future.

I just had the one dish a spaghetti arrabiata - I asked for it with a bit more bite which is exactly what I got with a side of extra home-made chilli sauce. The hosts were pleasant and cheerful , the ambiance is nice and...the food tasted good so nothing here not to like.More

Visited this restaurant 31st July, staff are very friendly and helpful. My starter of prawn cocktail was plentiful and tasty, as was my desert of profiteroles. However the main course of pollo parmigiana was disappointing. The tomato sauce and melted cheese was lovely but the...chicken was a bit dry and the aubergine was very undercooked and hard, it was very unappetising. I would visit again but would avoid anything with aubergine in it! One of our party chose the lamb and didn’t finish it, my partner and I tried it and both agreed it had an unusual taste! Not pleasant!, my partner thinks it might have been veal rather than lamb because it came in medallions!More

This was our 2nd visit to this restaurant. The staff are friendly even when busy and we never felt rushed. The meals are plentiful in size and all home cooked meals, lovely taste and i had to leave some to make space for dessert. Always...leave room for the Tiramisu. Soft, fluffy and flavourful. I could have eaten more than 1 portion it was that nice.More

My first visit to Antica Roma and I can only say, why have I never been before?!?!? From the moment we walked in, we were met with a friendly welcoming atmosphere. The food was absolutely fantastic, great value for money and huge portions. No need...to eat a slice of toast when I got home! Will definitely e back and can highly recommend. Thank you Antica RomaMore

We went there as our 1st meal out after the lockdown eased. We were a little concerned as to how they would handle the COVID extra requirements. They have made a realy good go of it. Plenty of anti bacterial wipes going on, the table,...menues, condiments etc. The staf had masks, which was not easy for them, as they are chatty & happy people, it makes it a little less, as you cannot see the smiles so easy. Food, as ver, realy great, reduced menu, but still had enough choice. A great meal & still a great night outMore

Not sure if they have a set Sunday menu as we have always chosen from the main menu, which is excellent. We know they do takeaways, so they may well have a set menu. It's probably best to give them a call or look on their... More

The building was a pub, but it's not a pizza place it is a good restaurant that does sell some quality bottled beers as most good restaurants do. Not what you are looking for, I assume
