The Romulan ship in Balance of Terror apparently could not warp while cloaked (the cloak apparently used too much power), but the fact that it hit at least three outposts that were not in the same solar system in a short span of time implies that it had at least some warp capability even if it was inferior to the Warp 8 that was standard for Federation and Klingon cruisers at the time.
