Good food, good service – Friendly staff, fast service and good food. I like the chicken marsala here paired with wine. The patio doesn't have a great view, but it's a nice place to eat on a sunny California day. The quality of food here is very good, especially any dish with chicken. I have come here for lunch a few times with co-workers. It is always a good time and service is great. The place is nicely decorated and is able to accommodate large groups.
Like most Italian joints, they bring out bread for you when you are seated. Roma D'Italia is a good place to check out if you are in the area and is especially nice during lunch time. My friend ordered a personal pizza despite his concerns that it wouldn't be big enough for his appetite. He was wrong and found it more than satisfying and delicious. I will go back and try the pizza next time.
The Best Italian Food in OC! – My wife and I love this place. We have eaten here for years. It has been owned by the same family for over 40 years. It is a great place to bring the kids or a date.
I love the Lasagna and the Chicken Verdura. Great wine selection and a patio on warm nights. I can't think of better Italian Food than the Roma.
fabulous!! – delicious food, nice people, family owned.....eat the chicken marsala. The place has a really cute patio on the street in old town tustin....super cute!! The red and white checked tabled clothes are very precious. The place looks like my grammies house and that is why i like it. woot!
Great Italian! – So I have been to this restaurant three times now and the food was excellent every time. It came to my table so hot every time that I actually had to wait a little for it to cool down to eat it. Some items on the menu that I would recommend for first times would be there baked spaghetti (way better than spaghetti with sauce). The second time I to Roma D Italia I took my GF and her mother. My GF got the cheese ravoli which is not a dish I would order at an Italian restaurant(usually to plain and bland for me). She said I had to try it so I did and was pleasantly surprised, it was the best dish that had been ordered between the three of us that night. All in all great family service, a nice out door eating area with heaters for nice days and warm nights and outstanding food.
Correction to many of the things said by Lov4food – The cheese is actually Romano cheese and it is freshly graded and not cheap by any means. Most of the desserts are homemade. The sauce is far from watery and the pasta is only AL dente upon request and it is never overcooked. I eat there almost every week and this place is absolutely amazing!!!
Best Italian Food For The Price – Even on a busy day you'll be seated rather promptly by freindly staff. This cozy little italian place has a secret that is becoming known. They are very very good at making Italian Food! Even then bread rolls that come warm from the oven are to die for. The pizza is just delicious and so are their appetizers. I normally will get their spinach tortellini. The presentation is not the greatest but don't judge by looks. The taste will have you coming back for more. The customers are friendly, the food is great, the price is good. Everything you need for a good night out for dinner.
Very good food... a couple corrections to the reviewer below – I've eaten here several times and the food has always been good. The pizza is excellent. They also have a couple of dishes I haven't seen anywhere else, like Pepperoni Bread and Chicken d'italia (chicken with ham, tomatoes, mushrooms baked in the oven). Be sure not to miss the Tiramisu... the best I've ever had. Certainly NOT store bought (Maybe the guy below was reviewing the wrong restaurant?)
And the reviewer below shouldn't be trusted too much. Any foodie knows that it's "al dente" not "el dente." Maybe he thought he was eating Mexican... no wonder he was disappointed.
The Worst Italian restaurant I have ever been to. – This is the worse food I have ever eaten. They claim its Italian but no one that has had Italian food would believe it. There tomato sauce is so watery that the bread looks like a mop if you try and dip it in the sauce. They have no idea how to cook pasta. The word el dente is not in there vocabulary It comes out like glue. They charge you for chili flakes. The cheese they use is commercial grade Parmesan There desserts are not made there and they charge you an arm and leg for store bought desserts.
Not at all autentic...don't expect a good Italian meal – It's probably a good place to bring kids as everything is covered in sweet red sauce. When the daily special is spaghetti and meatballs, I wouldn't hold your breath for good authentic Italian food.
Unique and delicious – This was my first visit and I was not disappointed. I ordered the lasagna and was delighted in both the taste and texture. It was baked with a slightly crusty cheese topping. The taste was excellent. My only complaint was that there wasn't enough cheese inside. I had to ask for a refill on my iced tea and had to wait an excessive amount of time to have it delivered. The outdoor seating was relaxing and Old Town Tustin in like a step back in time. Overall I would say this is one of my favorite Italian places in Orange County.
