Welcome to Cafe Roma
In San Luis Obispo’s Historic Railroad Square, a beloved tradition with deep Italian roots has been flourishing for over 40 years. The Rizzo Family has been capturing the hearts of locals and tourists since 1980 with their authentic Italian food and remarkable story, rooted in old family recipes.
At Café Roma Italian Restaurant, the tradition continues with handmade pasta and locally sourced ingredients from farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and vintners. Guests can dine in the classic Tuscan dining room, casual old-world cocktail bar, or scenic shade-covered patio, and feel transported to Italy.
The extensive monthly wine list features exciting new finds from small vineyards and classic wineries in Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Barbara County, Napa Valley, France, and Italy. Our knowledgeable staff can help plan your special event in one of Café Roma’s private dining rooms or garden patio. Come be welcomed by The Family and experience the rich Italian heritage at Café Roma in San Luis Obispo.
