About Us

La Roma Restaurant is located in Ottawa's Little Italy and has been an Ottawa favourite for over 40 years. Our recent head-to-toe renovation has allowed us three new semi-private dining rooms, a beautiful Mediterranean-inspired 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 even Take Out. Maria and the rest of the family invite you to join us for a glass of vino or a delicious homemade meal. Our menu is inspired from the many different regions of Italy and changes seasonally. We pride ourselves in offering fare that includes home made pasta and fresh sauces and dips. This year our family celebrates 25 wonderful years in the business. We hope to see you here soon!

Ciao for now
