Moderate prices, cozy ambience can't make up for uninspired food. – In Short
Aroma is a cute, cozy space that invites you to drop in for a glass of wine at the L-shaped bar and a casual Italian lunch or dinner. A whimsical touch is the faux-painted walls that let rows of red "bricks" peek out from behind peeling "plaster." Service is personable and competent but expect long waits to get food out of the kitchen. With virtually all appetizers under $10 and entrees below $20, Aroma's prices are unusually modest. But although the food is generally well prepared, it fails to generate much excitement. Prosciutto-topped bruschetta made with ripe tomatoes and real Parma ham is pleasant enough. Frito de castellamare substitutes zucchini batons for the promised shrimp, but the accompanying calamari and mahi are crisp and tender. Oven-roasted veal chop is nicely cooked but more fat than meat; two big salmon filets aren't improved by a bland tomato-caper-olive sauce.
