Hot dang, I’m at TPA early, and they have desks with power and good WiFi, so I’m going to play catch-up on some restaurant posts!
Raegan and Erin and I did some very relaxed driving through Northwest Arkansas last weekend, and we had a good dinner the second night in Harrison. The front desk person recommended Roma (not Roma’s), it was a good recommendation.
First of all, Roma is one of the Stealthy Chain Of Italian Restaurants That Is Not A Chain. The giveaway Spaghetti The Works was on the menu.
We got there about 1840 and the place was not even close to crowded. I had Spaghetti the Works. Aside from the fact that the marinara was a little more orange than I’ve experienced at the other places, it was perfect, a big pile of noodles and a ton of meat sauce, mushrooms, and a very good meatball. Raegan had manicotti and Erin had chicken fettuccine al fredo. All were outstanding. We had the usual table bread, and some of that outstanding al fredo to dip the bread in, and it was just great.
Service was friendly and just right. Our check was $50.30. You probably can’t do better for Italian, or much better for anything else in Harrison.
