The food is ok but except for the imposing brown leather chairs the place feels like a cafeteria & there is no background music. Yet on a tuesday evening the place was ralatively full! So I guess people like it. The food is ok, we shared appetizers of which: the beef carpacio was pretty good, the fried calamar tasted like... More

This is a great restaurant for all types of groups Pasta was great. The seafood is not that good probably because Riyadh has no access to freshly caught seafood. Other than the seafood everything was great including the service. Worth trying, place is a bit pricey but expected for the the total quality delivered.

The food was missing flavors & seasoning big time. The Beef carpaccio was wonderful & that's about it! The bread in the begging was all sweet and not to tasty. Ravioli was unpleasant & tasteless. Shrimp & penne was ok. Dessert was less than ok.

pasta和soup不错,奶油蘑菇味道很香浓。但是shrimp cocktail很一般。最震惊失望的是咖啡,我点的American coffee,但是能尝出是instant coffee冲的,我们点flat white他没有,问我们要不要white coffee,我们以为会是马来西亚很著名的white coffee,结果上来时热水泡薄荷叶!!!这最多可以叫做tea好吗?为什么是coffee?!

I consider this restaurant as one of the top 3 Italian food restaurant in Riyadh. I had the most wonderful experience. The taste of the food was extremely delicious, the service was marvelous and the overall atmosphere was outstanding. Highly recommended, specially for couples.

Perfectly prepared pasta. Not only that, but the best in Riyadh since a long long time. It is a quite small restaurant with a class.

I was there on a business lunch. I had heard about Roma and decided to give it a try. The service was very good: the waiters were knowledgeable about each plate, they were courteous, polite, pleasant, and patient. They didn't interrupt our conversation not even once (thank you for that, as we were having a very important discussion). We were... More
