Friendly and welcoming, in a beautiful atypical setting. We eat well, got good but not extraordinary. On the other hand the wine is excellent and of Italian origin. Sympa et accueillant,dans un beau cadre atypique. on y mange bien ,s'est bon mais pas extraordinaire. Par contre le vin est excellent et d'origine italienne.

Visiting La Rochelle for the first time and had some great seafood elsewhere but shock of shock went to this Italian restaurant for "pizza...!!!!" and it was as good as I have had anywhere (including Italy). Why anyone would go to this place for seafood is beyond me. Anyway we had a nice Italian red wine and pizza cooked in... More

Let's start with the service, dreadful, starter arrived before the wine, and had to virtually rugby tackle the waiter if we wanted anything. Food was quite acceptable, but why the macdonalds chips???

My husband ordered filet mignon which he enjoyed (but the portion was quite small!) I had spaghetti napolitano which was not the most flavoursome dish I've ever tasted to be honest, though it was a big portion! The children had lasagna and pizza margarita. They both enjoyed their meals. I'd say the main attraction for them was trying a diablo-menthe!... More

We had a lovely family meal here on a Sunday evening. Many restaurants away from the port area were closed and we were about to start the usual long walk looking for somewhere to eat with the family, 2 adults and three children. Via Roma is set in a characterful building on a side street from the port front with... More

After dining on our first evening in La Rochelle we decided to take a stroll and came across a restaurant in a quaint little street. There was a specials board outside and one of the dishes was Tuna, as this is a favourite of mine we decided to dine there the following night. What a disappointment ! The tuna steak... More

Three of our party chose fresh tuna steak, it was dry, over cooked and lacked taste, I chose a pizza which was not good, base too thick and the tomato sauce tasted as if it was straight from the tube of tomato purée. We chose a menu formula which included three courses but we're still charged extra for our desserts.... More

This is my second visit to Via Roma. The first was in Feb with my daughter when we came to have a look at schools. We both loved the restaurant and she insisted that I bring her Dad here today when we came for a quick 1 night break. Again a fabulous meal in lovely surroundings. The only negative is... More

My girlfriend and I attended Via Roma on our holidays recently. We ordered the two-course menu - I had beef and my girlfriend had fish. We waited quite a while to be served our main course - this might in part be explained because our waiter (who may have been the owner I think) had an argument with the chef... More
