Cucina Rustica Italiana – Since 1980 Cafè Roma has been creating a colorful gastronomic history in San Luis Obispo. The Italian restaurant is located in the historic Railroad Square of San Luis Obispo, near the train station. This location is just 2 minutes from downtown and very close to Cal Poly’s world class Performing Arts Center.
Café Roma features indoor and outdoor dining and specializes in intimate meals and large parties. The garden patio is covered with a full awning, heated and beautifully lit at night. Step into the dining room and let the comfortable Tuscan decor surround you as the staff graciously serves you selections from Maria Rosa Rizzo’s menu. Stroll into the Ciclo Club bar and enjoy cocktails made from fresh fruits and classic spirits. Or catch the soccer game while enjoying a pizza and a beer.
The Deruta Banquet room is one of the premier destinations for special events, accommodating parties as large as 80 for a sit down meal and 100 for appetizer/cocktail receptions. Board meeting and private parties under 40 guests can reserve the La Sala room.
Select from the extensive wine cellar. Being that the restaurant is in the heart of California’s central coast wine country, Marco Rizzo is the purveyor of the finest local wines. In it’s 37 years in business, Café Roma has created many nationally recognized recipes and present a Wine Spectator award winning wine list. Take a peek and you will find top California and Italian wines at “San Luis Obispo” prices.
Amtrak commuters who detrain in San Luis Obispo are within walking distance of a “Northern Italian restaurant right on the Swiss border.” The journey is possible with just a little imagination and a reservation at the Cafè Roma – a restaurant that features great food, genuine hospitality, and a setting with its own story to tell.
