Last Sunday Brian and I had to take care of some business following service. We needed to grab a bite to eat quickly so we could make it on time for our meeting. Romacelli was in the vicinity of where we were going, so why not. We had never tried this particular location, so it was great for us to try the Sugar Mill Pond location.
The Cafe Roma concept originally came from New Orleans. Cafe Roma offers fresh Mediterranean & Italian Cuisine. Their restaurants has a comfortable yet upscale feel. Romacelli menu options range from pizzas & sandwiches, to pasta & fish. Such a great place to be able to enjoy with a business client or just a night out with the family.
Romacelli serves the freshest ingredients in each of its dishes. The menu has such a variety, you will be able to find something to suit every member of the family. There are plans to expand to Baton Rouge in the near future
Upon arrival the restaurant is very warm and inviting. There is seating inside, outside and there is also a bar area with TV's. At the time we arrived, business was light, but there was a steady flow. I ordered a Shirley temple, which is usually my drink of choice at most restaurants. I am slow deciding on what I will order, but because we were grabbing a quick bite to eat, I knew I wanted either a salad or sandwich. This helped to narrow my choices. Lol..
I ordered the Grilled Chicken Caesar Sandwich. The bread is homemade, baked fresh daily. The chicken breast is grilled and sliced topped with Parmesan and mozzarella cheese. The sandwich is dressed with tomatoes, romaine lettuce and Caesar dressing. I must say, the bread was delicious. Nice and crispy bread, reminded me of ciabatta bread. Romacelli has some of the best Creamy Caesar dressing I have ever tasted.
The only complaint that I had was that my sandwich did not have enough dressing, but I asked for some and she bought me some to the table. Fixed the problem right quick. The cheese was absolutely delicious. There were chunks of chicken. The sandwich was very scrumptious. The portion size was enough for two servings. One of the best sandwiches I have had in a long time. That bread, I can eat everyday. Amazing...
The location we dined at was the Sugar Mill Pond location. I must say, I prefer the Sugar Mill location rather than the River Ranch location. The employees are much nicer and the service was great! She served us well enough without being a bother. We were seated and served expediently. A very nice environment and atmosphere to dine with your family. This location is kid friendly.
There is also outdoor seating. Which is very nice to enjoy the scenery and view of the pond. With this cool weather that we have been having, why not enjoy lunch or dinner with the awesome people at Sugar Mill Pond.
Overall our experience was great. Even though we didn't stay as long as we would if it were a normal visit, we enjoyed our food and everything came out quickly. Our food was prepared to perfection. We were served with such a pleasant attitude. The prices are very reasonable.
