Get to Know the People on Preston

Antonella Ceglia

“La Roma Restaurant originally opened in 1962 on the corner of Somerset and Bronson Avenue. Our family took over in 1990 and brought La Roma ‘home’ to Preston Street. This year, our family will be celebrating 25 years in the business. Our mom Maria and our entire family have so much to celebrate and are truly grateful for all of the wonderful clients and friends we have made over the years.”

“My siblings and I grew up in the restaurant and spent summers and weekends working alongside our parents. Although we were never expected to work for the family business full time, we gained a huge respect and love for the industry and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.”

“Many of our pastas are homemade and all of our sauces, dips and desserts are made in house as well. We work very hard to bring a local element to our menu and work closely with many local farmers to bring in fresh meats and produce. Although we’ve respected many of La Roma’s original recipes to date, it’s important for us to demonstrate that we are also keeping up with the times. Our menu is a beautiful blend of old and new and we work very hard to keep our menus and wine lists fresh and new, yet deeply rooted in our Italian heritage.

“We look forward to seeing you at La Roma soon. A presto!”
