Very "Americanized" Italian place... but they done, done it right!!! food is great... usually a decent wait on a Friday or Saturday night... Pizza? The Roma Special is one of the best pizza's out there... period. Give it a go, you'll thank me in the morning.

Love this place. It is little house that they made in this great Resuaurant. The food is so good. Always busy. The best dish I like is The Cheese Ravioli Fresco is so good. Yummy and the wines are great too.

Worst Restaurant Experience Ever! My boyfriend and I decided to have dinner at Roma D'Italia. We both ordered iced tea and it was terrible. Very bitter and over steeped. I was ok with that but then we got our Calamari and there was a long black hair baked/fried INTO the breading of the calamari! it was DISGUSTING! The cleanliness of the restaurant was appalling. I do not recommend this to anyone looking for a clean meal.

Very fresh Italian food. Ravioli, lasagne and cantelloni are all made on site and very good.

Gets a bit crowded, and not cheap, but consistently good quality.

If you go on the weekend, get there early, and there may be a wait.

This is an italian restaurant with great and delicious food. Their price is not so cheap but pretty affordable. They are usually so packed on weekends, so better to make reservations or get there earlier so that you can sit in & enjoy. The only thing I don't like is that the place is kind of small so it tends to be really loud. You can not really talk that much to your friends cuz hard to hear. But it is for sure manifesting taste of Italia

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

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.

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.

Pros: Amazing food with family atmosphere.

Cons: Service was slow last time.

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!!!

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.

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.

Pros: Authentic Italian food, very large menu, excellent pizza

Cons: Parking, waits can be long on weekends

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.

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.

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.

This isn't the best Italian in the OC, but it's rock solid. We tend to go early (5pm) to avoid the crowds. The place is full by the time we leave.

The homemade bread is awesome!

The pizza is very good for traditional thin crust. We haven't had a bad meal yet (been there about a dozen times).

After reading all the positive reviews on this site on Roma D, I might have walked in with too much expectation. The pizza was pretty good, better than most joints in the area, otherwise, the other items on the menu are just ok. When I went, there was a huge group of rowdy college students, so the ambience was not nice at all... but i could imagine it to be better in any other nights though. Worth a try.

Been eating here for years (since 1990) and have never been let down. Great for a date or whatever. Good location in OLD downtown Tustin. Great choice of Eggplant dishes. Tustin is better than the other location. Ignore the often abrupt family member waitress, it's part of the atmoshpere. Here and Renata's in downtown orange are my favorites to date.

My husband and I moved here from Michigan. We had difficulty for nearly a year finding a good pizza...but comes along the Roma D of Laguna Hills. Get the "Calabrese" pizza w/ lots of garlic, basil and tomato... mmm! Its our favorite! Ambience reminds me of restaurants back east too. It does without the flair and hype of most OC chain restaurants. Excellent break from the norm. Try it!

I have enjoyed Roma D Italia for over 30 years. As a spaghetti & meatball connoisseur I must get my fix at least twice a week. I recommend a pizza with your order as well. A great place for family dining or a night out with your spouse. Their sauce is so good you can't wait until the next time you visit.

I was complaining to my family about how I can't find good Italian in So-Cal (from Nor-Cal, used to San Francisco Italian), and they brought me here. Its not Mona Lisa in North Beach, but their cheese tortellini comes darn close. This is about the best Italian food you're going to get in So Cal for a decent price. The calamari 1/2 order is huge, so if you like calamari definately order that. This is also one of the few places that serves HOT bread! Good stuff.

This family-owned restaurant located in the heart of Old Town Tustin has reopened after undergoing a major remodel. While the venue itself received a facelift, it remains steadfast in keeping with its 50-year tradition of dishing out…
