120 Fairfax Pike, Stephens City, VA
Food is always consistent, great service, friendly staff and atmosphere, this is our go-to restaurant in Stephens City. The gyros are delicious.
On Sunday, January 4, 2015, my daughter and I had lunch at the Roma Casual Italian & Greek Dining restaurant at 120 Fairfax Pike, Route 277, just east of Stephens City. The place is a little hard to find because it is in the rear of a parking lot, almost hidden by other buildings in front of it.
Hours are Sunday, 12:00 PM-9:00 PM and Monday-Saturday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM. The phone number is 540-869-5200, and the Web page is http://www.romacasual.com/.
The entrance is at the left front and opens into an area with a small bar with half a dozen stools. Turning to your right takes you into the main dining area. The front part is divided down the middle by chest-high dividers, with tables on either side and booths along the left wall.
Other seating in the front is along the windows and the right wall with booths, all the way to the back. Tables are there on the left, crosswise, and more booths. Wall decorations are pictures of scenes in Italy.
The menu is a large, double-sided laminated sheet. Categories are Appetizers, Sides, Steaks, Seafood, Brick Oven Pizza, House Favorites, Italian Classics, Classic Pastas, Greek Favorites, Soup, Salads, House Specialty, Stromboli, and Calzones.
The flip side lists beverages, including an assortment of Beer, Cocktails, Martinis, and Wine. It also notes that the Happy Hour is Monday-Friday, 4:00 PM-6:00 PM.
My daughter ordered a Gyro Sandwich from the Greek Favorites menu. It came with in-house potato chips. I chose Eggplant Parma from the Italian Classics menu, and received three thick slices of eggplant, along with a large bowl of pasta and a Caesar Salad.
The eggplant was panko breaded and very good, but I didn’t touch the pasta and saved it to take home. My daughter had a large cannoli for dessert, but I was too full of eggplant to have anything else.
The Roma is a keeper on my list. It’s one of the few places offering Greek dishes, but unfortunately there are only four selections. On a future visit I’ll probably order Moussaka, and possibly sometime try their Souvlakia.
