diningf&bhappenings Roma Restaurant, tucked away in Umm Al Hassam, came into existence in 1990 with a very simple objective: to offer authentic Italian cuisine using imported Italian ingredients cooked by Italian-trained chefs. Renowned by many as one of the finer Italian restaurants on the island, it remains undiscovered by some. This garden-fronted venue offers the options of a high-class lounge or a fine dining restaurant. To the left of Venetian arches and columns is the glass-enclosed lounge; upscale and trendy, it offers privacy and casual à la carte dining. It’s perfect for quiet candlelit romance, a pleasant space to talk with friends and family, or to conduct business. To the right of the lobby area is the fine dining restaurant. Here you’ll find a quick pasta lunch featuring salad, pasta and beverage that is a popular choice for a spot of business. Dinner offers a true Italian repertoire of favourites along with live music. Home-made pastas, marinated hammour, freshly caught seafood and a wide variety of antipasti are served with style. Dessert is offered with a timeless trolley selection of daily fresh creations. Roma’s food is as delicious as this 75-seater restaurant is comfortable. Modern with authentic trattoria touches, it is little wonder that it remains a hidden gem. You have got to try their date caramel cake that customers never leave without. Also, it would be rude not to round things off with a shot of espresso when you are in an Italian restaurant. This venue gives you the option of dining at a cosy corner away from all the hustle and bustle. E Call 17 125-885.
