Roma Mia Cebu Philippines Restaurant at Terraces Ayala Center Cebu by Jeffroger Kho

During my college days roughly 2 years ago I used to associate Roma Mia as a restaurant in Cebu serving mostly pizza, pasta, and those addictive calzones.

Late last year, I was introduced to their grilled dishes, the Godfather Chops in particular, and from then on I’ve found my favorite porkchop in Cebu!

The adage that says “Once tasted, always wanted!” holds very true for Roma Mia’s Godfather Chops.

Godfather Chops in Gravy (Php 168) – large chops, grilled and served with Roma Mia’s very own homemade gravy and buttered vegetables

Roma Mia’s Godfather Chops is my favorite porkchop in Cebu or in the whole wide world!  Hehe.  A bit exaggerated, but it’s very true.  The serving size is adequate; the meat is soft, juicy, and medium done.

The one I tried on this post was in gravy sauce.  I’ve also tried the Godfather Chops in pesto, and it’s equally good (if you like pesto that is).  Roma Mia’s Godfather Chops is just one up compared to Bigby’s Rodeo Chops!

Potato Wedges (Php 105) – thick slices of deep fried potatoes served with garlic mayo

Roma Mia’s Potato Wedges were sliced huge!  It reminded me of KFC’s french fries but only bigger and better (no offense meant KFC!).  I’ve always liked these big fries unlike those served in most fastfood joints because I get to really taste the soft potatoes inside and not just the crunchy-fried exterior.

Chicken Ala Trio (Php 120) – perfectly crispy and juicy chicken with penne pasta and garlic rice

Roma Mia’s Chicken Ala Trio is a good and affordable combination.  The chicken was indeed crispy and juicy, and it reminds me of Sunburst’s chicken.  I dunno if that’s a good or a bad thing.  But for me, I liked it!

Chicken Caesar Salad (Php 250) – Roma Mia’s classic Caesar salad topped with seasoned coated chicken fillet

Nothing much to be said about Roma Mia’s Chicken Caesar Salad. It’s fairly very standard. I’m not much of a salad person unless there’s something really special about it just like what I had in Ambassador’s Cafe.

Seafood Marinara in Spaghetti (Php 555) – shrimps, squid, and mussels, sauteed in garlic and marinara sauce, seasoned with Italian herbs and spices and tossed with spaghetti pasta

Wasn’t able to try this Seafood Marinara because it was one of those few moments in my life that I was ashamed to ask my friend to try his food! But looking at the photo, it’s quite a treat.

So have your porkchop craving fix over at Roma Mia and also try their other grilled dishes.  For me, I should go back to have another Godfather Chops rediscover those Calzone that I used to love!

  1. i hate the accomodations of roma mia.
    especially every afternoon,
    they [the employees]
    tend to be very very lazy to
    accomodate customers

    this happened to me twice
    when i entered the restaurant
    no one approached me,
    even for the menu
    after 10 minutes of sitting
    no one came to me.

    i prefer the old romamia [near max’s restaurant]
    old employees where very very accomodating
    its such a disappointment
    to eat at a restaurant who serves very good food
    but the services, its a turn off.

  2. yeah xtin47 the service can be a bit off. but bahala nalang kay i can’t help but droll over the godfather chops! hehe.

    we’ll just hope that thru this blog they will know 🙂

  3. roma mia’s godfather chops in herb sauce is simply divine.. sigh.. miss this… right aftr work, timing lunch nah! im so going to it park for this.. 🙂

  4. Hi Cara, thanks for dropping by our blog. I’ll try that Godfather chops too one of these days.

  5. Since moving here to cebu almost 3 years back, I haven’t gone to Roma Mia just yet. But my hubby is dying to try out their Godfather Chops and is insisting on dining there this weekend! They put out this some sort of menu board at their doorway and those chops just stare back at us everytime we walk by their branch in Ayala Terraces. We’re into trying out different restos so your posts here are very helpful!
