I love the thrill of discovering a good restaurant that is hidden away from the main hustle and bustle. That is exactly what Roman Tapas did for me - as soon as I walked in, it sent a little frisson of excitement through me.
It is located on a random side street near Caledonian Road and Highbury & Islington tube stops and hidden amongst a fairly residential corner. Not too far from the hustle of Upper Street but far enough to seem like a hidden gem.
We ordered some old tapas favourites.
I had just enough stomach space to order a small dessert, the espresso ice cream.
Service was very friendly but a bit slow at times. They forgot one of our wine orders and we had to remind them. I would still come back though!
