Freshly prepared to order, of course, and authentically cooked in a traditional pizza oven, the choices include all the favourites plus some Roma specials, and are well priced from €7.50.
But it’s not all about pizzas. The full menu includes a good range of starters from €6 including mussels, spinach with cream and pine nuts or beef carpaccio with parmesan, salads and pasta such as tagliatelle with prawns and clams, traditional spaghetti bolognaise and ricotta and spinach tortelinni in a cream sauce from €6.
With a good selection of fish and meat dishes, from €9 and €8.50 respectively, and delicious homemade desserts to tempt you, tiramisu, mojito ice cream and chocolate and orange ice cream being amongst them, ROMA offers something for everyone to ensure a relaxed and enjoyable dining experience every time. The comprehensive wine list offers an interesting selection of both Spanish and Italian wines.
New for 2012 is the Chef’s Suggestions menu which changes each week and features imaginative dishes such as strawberry gazpacho with king prawns, bream baked in the oven with salt and Giuseppe pizza with aubergine, courgette, sweet pepper and anchovies. The good value Menu del Dia is priced at €14 for three courses, bread and a drink and children are well catered too for as all dishes can be ordered as half portions. Take away service available.
What’s more, throughout the summer months, ROMA is open all day long from 12.30 hours until late. With a simplified menu offered between 3.30 and 19.00hours, this is the perfect stop off for something to eat after a trip to the beach when other venues may have closed their kitchens. There is also a large, airy restaurant inside should you not wish to eat outdoors, giving Roma the capacity for around 100 covers. Booking is advisable during July and August.
ROMA’s promise of consistently high quality and value for money has proved a winning formula, earning this landmark restaurant on Mahon harbour an enviable reputation amongst regulars who return each year and newcomers looking forward to their next visit. Make ROMA your favourite meeting point on the port.
