Mexès was signed to a four-year contract by A.S. Roma in June 2004. Roma was later found guilty of misconduct as AJ Auxerre did not agree to the transfer; it was solely the decision of the player. Mexès was suspended but later the ban was temporarily lifted. Mexès played his first Serie A match on 12 September 2004 against ACF Fiorentina. In February 2005, the appeal on the 6 week ban was rejected and Mexès was suspended until April. The saga was eventually settled by Mexès, or AS Roma would have had to pay Auxerre €7 million.
After a difficult first season with the capitoline club, Mexès began the 2005–06 campaign on the bench. Roma's transfer misconduct in the purchase of Mexes led to the club's being suspended in 2005 from signing players other than free agents, but the ban temporarily lifted in August. As the club did not sign anyone due to the ban, he became a key player for Luciano Spalletti's squad. Mexès played 9 out of a possible 10 games for Roma in UEFA Cup competition. He also played in the final of Coppa Italia 2005–06. The Giallorossi finished 5th in Serie A, initially qualifying only for the next year's UEFA Cup, but due to the 2006 Italian football scandal, Roma were awarded 2nd, allowing Mexès to play for the first time in the UEFA Champions League.
As one of the key players of Roma, he formed a central defensive partnership with Cristian Chivu. The club reached the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. The club faced Internazionale again at Coppa Italia 2006–07 final. Mexès, partnering with Ferrari, Chivu, and Panucci, helped Roma to a 7–4 aggregate victory, including a 6–2 first leg win. The Giallorossi also finished second in Serie A with the third lowest goals conceded total.
Mexes signed a new 5-year contract in which he would earn €4.5M in the first year, increasing to €5M by the last year, in gross annual salary (pre-taxed salary). The Giallorossi reached the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals for the second straight year but lost to eventual champions Manchester United for the second time in the same year year. In Serie A, Roma narrowed an 11 point gap with Internazionale and eventually finished 2nd behind Internazionale, 3 points back. At 2008 Coppa Italia Final, Mexès scored the opening goal for Roma, and the Giallorossi went on to win 2–1, defending their title.
With Mexès in defense, Roma qualified for the knockout stage of UEFA Champions League. Mexes missed the second leg against Arsenal and Roma lost in 6–7 penalty shootout. However, Roma's defense conceded the 5th highest number of goals in the domestic league.
In Roma's first Europa League match (Thursday 30 July 2009), Mexes scored on a Francesco Totti free kick, giving Roma a draw.
Although he received slightly less playing time with the arrival of Nicolas Burdisso on loan from Inter, Mexès contributed to a defense which helped Roma finish second in Serie A. In the last part of 2010 he has reclaimed his spot in the team, and has established himself as one of the world's most complete central defenders.
