About Us

An Ottawa favourite for over 40 years, La Roma is now located in Little Italy. Our recent head-to-toe renovation has allowed us three new semi-private rooms perfect for corporate and family events. A large and spacious terrace and a brand new bar to sip your favourite Chianti. We are open 7 days a week and welcome you for either lunch, dinner or take out and now, UberEats Ottawa. Join us for live Jazz every Thursday from 6-9pm and BYOW (with no corkage fee) every Tuesday. This year our family is celebrating 26 years of business and we look forward to serving you. Salute!

Ciao for now


Our menu is inspired from the many diverse regions of Italy and we support local farmers and producers to create a seasonally changing menu that is traditional with a contemporary touch. We pride ourselves in offering house made pasta, sausages, cured meats, desserts and sauces. Chef Ilya enjoys creating a modern plate rooted in tradition. He plays with texture and taste and creates specials and features that showcase local ingredients and seasonal themes.

tutto finisce a tarallucci e vino
