Used to love this place, but put off when car broken into while their guard was taking care of it, Also, the service is just sooooo bad. Can take an hour or more to get your meal, and usually only one person in the group will get it at one time. Then another half an hour for the next person,... More

The Cafe Roma ought to be great: it's in a cozy neighborhood location, has plenty of room for big groups & families, & a menu that can satisfy everyone. This is all unfortunately undermined by the staff, whose attitude toward customers is appalling. Even being asked for a menu causes the servers to sigh & act put-upon. The glacial service... More

Worst burger I have ever had. ☹️👎. I really wonder how reviewers rate this restaurant good. I think they came from the moon. Besides terrible service. Very slow. Don't order burger. It is something else. But definitely not a burger. Though tomato soup is good.

Cafe Roma was a real treat in the heart of Kampala. This pizza and Italian restaurant was just delicious. The menu is quite extensive and seems to be pretty reasonably priced. It was awesome to see an authentic Italian style wood-burning pizza oven in Kampala. The staff here it was very nice and polite and for having a large group... More

If you're in the area and looking for dinner it's a decent spot. Not something that you would drive from town for though. If I'm already on this side of town during lunch or dinner, it's my go to spot.

One of my best meals, if not the best, after a year and a half of living in Uganda! The garlic sauce is amazing! The pizza is perfection and the mushroom risotto is top quality. It's also very clean and a relaxing, romantic atmosphere.

Cafe Roma is locared in a quiet are of Kampala. Good parking spacezand good service with friendly staff. Spacious courtyard can accommodate large groups. Child friendly with small playground. Pizzas are large and taste great. We tried Tuna, Marguerita, Proscuitto (ham) and Bolognese. Pasta Carbonara was very tasty and comes in small or large portions. Good atmosphere which we really...

The food and drinks are good and the service is acceptable but the restaurant does take a pounding from the open bar and the loud pop music. I don't think they can decide whether they want to be a bar or a restaurant. Good place for the younger crowd to meet up and have a quick meal while waiting for... More

Sometimes referred to as Caffe Roma. There is a small, supervised play area behind the kitchen and indoor dining area that allows for a safe and happy margin between adults and kids. On top of this, the food is good and tastes fresh. The bar is small, but they have Ugandan beers and can make most contemporary mixed drinks. The... More

I ate here twice last week. Once at Friday for late lunch and then again on Saturday night (when it was jam-packed with vehicles!). The place is popular with families as there is a play area. Many people came for take away pizzas. There is good service by the staff. They sell a half litre carafe of red wine for... More
