Dearborn >Roman Village
Roman Village - not a good choice. Roman Village restaurant is horrible. On one visit I substituted the tossed salad for the Ceasar. When I got my bill I saw an additional charge of $1.75 that I was never informed about. I asked the waitress about it and she said that the Ceasar was extra. I asked to speak to the manager because I would've liked being informed of such a charge up front. The manager was completely unapologetic for not informing me of price difference and for the price difference not being on the menu. His response to me was "Ceasar dressing is expensive. You don't operate a restaurant so you don't know the cost." I vowed never to go back but I forgot and went today. Today, I ordered the usual with a tossed salad (the Ceasar is not good enough to pay an extra $1.75). When the salad came there was a DEAD FLY in it. I notified the server who never apologized, and took the fly, I mean salad away, after she served all 10 of my co-workers theirs and took additional drink orders. I asked to speak to a manager. The same idiot from my first experience came over and said "This isn't the first or I'm sure the last time I'll hear this. I'm sorry." They brought me a new salad but I was afraid to eat it. THEN I was served my meal 25 minutes after my coworkers were served theirs. My coworker sitting next to me ordered the exact same meal but was served with the rest of the table. When the server came I asked if my meal would be free due to the horrible experience and she said she would talk to her idiot, I mean manager. While she did this I decided not to eat the meal. The only thing they did for me was take $2 off my bill. I asked the manager if $2.00 was the charge for flies these days and why he felt ok charging me for a meal I didn?t eat. His response was: ?You should expect this is restaurants. Lettuce grows on the floor. I already said sorry.? I guess he thought that it was acceptable for me, a 7 month pregnant woman, to eat unclean food in restaurants, and that I should pay for it.
The long, long menu is full of winners, if you're looking for meatball-and-mostaccioli-style Italian food--nothing nouveau here..
The dishes taste fresh, with a higher fat content, even without cheese, than you may be used to in Italian food. The simple, fresh-tasting marinara subjects tomatoes to just so much handling and no more. The pasta is homemade and includes the usual favorites: ravioli, fettuccini Alfredo, lasagna. Veal and chicken include marsala and cacciatore. The menu also includes pizza, calzones, meatball subs, and zuppa, a simple chicken soup).
Great Food -- Slow Service. If you like Italian, you will love Roman Village. The food is terrific and the bread is outstanding. The only downfall is the service. The waitstaff is extremely personable yet slow. The food is worth the slow service.
Old World. Typical kind of Old World Italian American restaurant. Not in step with modern Italy but more like Detroit Italian food from 30 years ago.
From terrific Italian dishes to simply pizza, Roman Village is fantastic. The breadsticks come to your table hot and fresh when you order. The dinners are large enough to take home and have some the next day. The only downfall is the service. There are only 2 servers that I would consider great. If you are willing to wait for terrific food, it is well worth it!
All I can say is, Fantastico!!
Family owned and operated, for over thirty years. "no really"!
Excellent pasta made fresh, great pizza.
