About The Roman Empire Bar Restaurant
What did the Romans ever do for us, eh? Well, aside from the aqueducts, the roads, irrigation, public health and sanitation. The Roman Empire bar and restaurant in Brisbane boasts a legacy of cooking that dates back to Roman times, with authentic Italian recipes that have stood the test of time. Of course, the Cosmopolitan Centre in Carindale is a slightly more recent addition to the landscape than the Colosseum or the Circus Maximus, but the tradition of the food is centuries old: pastas and pizzas, risottos and salads as well as plenty of meat and fish dishes. Take a trip back in time – or at least, a trip to Creek Road in Carindale – for an Italian meal that offers something for your entire legion. Book a table though, as they have been known to fill up quickly.

Serving up exceptional Italian food is the name of the game at The Roman Empire. Things are not done by half here, and there is passion flowing right through this Carindale restaurant, in true Italian style. Their menu is of course the star of the show, and we recommend starting your Italian affair with The Roman Empire with the antipasto plate brimming with cured meats, olives, cheeses and pickled vegetables, alongside natural oysters with a spiced gazpacho shot and fresh lemon on the side.
With your palate sufficiently enticed, perhaps go for the Moreton Bay bug risotto in a creamy garlic sauce, or the beef cheek orecchiette with flavoursome vegetable ragout. It would be remiss though to not indulge in one of their pizzas, and the king roberto is topped with pork belly, ham, pepperoni, bocconcini and mozzarella and we’re calling it one of the best pizzas in Brisbane. You’ll also find delicious Italian-style meat and seafood dishes and fresh salads, so everyone is guaranteed to be satisfied. You’ll find The Roman Empire along Creek Road in Carindale, close to Mount Gravatt East, about thirty minutes from Brisbane’s CBD. Bookings are essential.

Unpretentious busy restaurant with friendly service and fantastic food. It's a real favourite with locals. The pasta dishes are just beautiful. Our kids enjoyed their pizzas and desserts.
We had a great meal and have already booked to go back shortly. We have been going to Roman Empire for some years and have not been disappointed.
Great food and efficient service. A little noisy if sitting inside. Good price and lots of choice on menu. Nice wine selection and good coffee and desserts.
Nice casual ambience, meals were tasty a little rushed maybe. All in all a good dining experience. Deserts, especially the Tiramisu was very nice. Prices quite reasonable.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food. Cracked pepper would have been nice and corkage is a bit high but you can't have everything I guess.
Food was great as per usual. Waitress got our drinks order wrong twice. Pork belly was delicious. Highly recommend. Good value and will go again.
Good service. Friendly staff who were attentive to all guests. Well presented food. Nice layout of the restaurant gave plenty of space to spread out.
