Welcome to Cafe Roma

In San Luis Obispo’s Historic Railroad Square, there is a long standing tradition with deep Italian roots. Since 1980, the Rizzo Family has captured the hearts of locals and tourists alike with old family recipes, featuring authentic Italian food and a remarkable story.

Today Café Roma Italian Restaurant continues with its tradition of making handmade pasta and sourcing from local farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and vintners. From the classic Tuscan dining room and casual old-world cocktail bar, to the scenic shade covered patio, people say you feel transported to Italy while dining at the elegant Café Roma in San Luis Obispo.

The extensive wine list changes monthly, always with additions of new and exciting finds from small vineyards and classic wineries on the Central Coast (Paso Robles & Edna Valley), Santa Barbara County, Napa Valley, France, and Italy. Count on a knowledgeable staff to plan your banquet or special event in one of Café Roma’s private dining rooms or garden patio. Come and be welcomed by The Family.
