  • Detroits oldest restaurant still shines

    Jason S on 16 Feb 2010 via Insider Pages

    Roma Cafe is a must-try Italian Restaurant. It's the oldest continuously operated restaurant in Detroit. The food is fantastic. The tuxedo-clad waiters take your orders on PDA's, and it's surprisingly affordable. Do try!

    I would never go there again !My sauce was watery and the steak was rare when I ordered it medium.I've been treated better by McDonald's wait staff.Save your money and the drive to an unsafe part of detroit.

  • Old and Overrated

    I've been to Roma Cafe a few times and have been disappointed each occasion. I've read the other reviews and have to agree that I think the experience is directly related to who you know and how well the staff knows you. Frequent

  • Outside of going to Italy, its the best!!!!!

    suzy d on 12 Oct 2008 via Insider Pages

    If you can't go to Italy, go to Roma Cafe. The staff is great and the food is wonderful. Did I mention how cheap? You will not believe your eyes. Valet service too.

  • Yummy!

    Grace W on 10 Oct 2008 via Insider Pages

    This place was awesome! We felt right at home, and didn't want to leave. My boys were even comfortable here. We ended up having two of the Veal Gourmet, which gave us more than enough food for four and it only cost $66 !

  • Fine Italian Restaurant

    Laurie P on 12 Sep 2008 via Insider Pages

    Fine Italian cuisine served in a comfortable atmosphere. They have a great wine selection as well as a full bar service. You must order the Caesar salad, which they prepare at your table.

    Roma's Cafe is a Fabulous Italian Restaurant! From the Antipasta salads to the Italian Sausage the food is delicious. The service and wait staff were pleasant. We have been going here for years and they are always good. Highly

  • Best restaurant in Detroit

    RickDog on 15 Mar 2008 via Citysearch

    I have been coming here for years, as well as my parents before me, as well as my grandparents before my parents.. Jan, the owner, and Dan, the host, are two of the most gracious and polite people you could ever meet. They have a superb

  • Best Italian food Downtown since Lelli's on Woodward closed.

    WopperFlopper on 18 Feb 2008 via Citysearch

    I've only had GREAT food and GOOD service here. MONDAY ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT BUFFET is absolutely the FINEST Italian food you can find anywhere (better than NYC!) and reasonably priced, too.

    I was really excited about eating there, especially after reading all of the great reviews, however I was very disappointed. We arrived on time only to discover that our reservation had been mistakenly been bumped up by a half hour, not a

  • The best Italian restaurant in Detroit

    goovno1234 on 27 Aug 2006 via Citysearch

    I have been coming to this restaurant for 30 years, and I am in my 40's. I have NEVER had a bad meal there. The food is well prepared, plentiful, and served correctly. \r
    The Roma Cafe is always busy. There is a good reason for this-

  • I'm back at my grandmothers house

    rickge1 on 16 Feb 2006 via Citysearch

    You step back in time when you go to this place. A 130 year old house with an atmosphere like you are at home. The servers have been there forever and are knowlegable warm and friendly like you were family. And the food! We had the veal

  • Simply the BEST

    chy8nna on 31 Dec 2005 via Citysearch

    Excellent food and service. An extensive menu with classic Italian favorites along with flavorful beef, seafood, and poultry selections. Salads are dressed with a very tasty Italian style vinaigrette that must be homemade. Cocktails
