A word from Trattoria Romana In Wakefield
Trattoria Romana South was opened by award winning Chef Luciano Canova to offer residents and visitors of southern Rhode Island with the authentic Italian cuisine that the Trattoria Romana name has become synonymous with after the success of the Trattoria Romana restaurant in Lincoln. The team selected the location in South County Commons in Wakefield to offer convenient access to all of Southern RI.

Today, our Italian restaurant in Wakefield RI offers a lively bar scene, where regulars and guests can enjoy cocktails, liquor, beer, and wine from our extensive drink menu while also enjoying our full food selection. Our bar and restaurant are open year round for dinner and drinks.

    The title above says it all. We were at our table for over ten minutes, 15 maybe, before our waitress came over. When she did, no introduction, no apology, would you like a drink, etc. For these prices, it should have been better. While it won't stop me from going there again, I will think twice where I want to drop $100 for dinner again. The ambiance of the bar is lovely but the tables are too close together unless you want to hear every word of your fellow diner's conversation.

    We have seen the ads and decided to give it a try for Mother's Day Eve dinner. Very nice menu with something to offer anyone's taste. We sat in the room next to the bar and that is something we won't do again as several bar patrons were very loud. Fun bar but not when you're trying to have a relaxing dinner. The wine list is extensive and the ambiance was warm. The waiter was knowledgable and very pleasant. Overall, a nice surprise.

    Relaxing and warm décor seeming to hint at expectation of good food. Waitress helpful and attentive. Off to good start with well prepared appetizers that were very enjoyable. Entrées arrived with my husband's ribeye steak cooked at wrong temperature and my chops dry, overcooked. Manager came to table to inform my husband he doesn't know what medium rare is because steak cooked to perfect medium rare as ordered. I had changed my order to something simpler (spaghetti and meatballs); didn't want to chance dry chops again, but was served chops again anyway. In short, husband served rare steak and I had to take chops although there had been a change of order. Worst part: manager took as personal affront, never apologized or made things right.

    I always look forward to going to Trattoria Romano. The meal is always delicious and the service tops. A surprise 60th anniversary dinner was given there for my husband and me a few months ago and it was just perfect. We really enjoy any of Luciano's restaurants.

    My husband & I had been to Trattoria before & had an amazing dinner but this time it was not good. We were expecting a great meal & a nice atmosphere, instead it was to loud (bar side); now I know to request the dining room side, and our food was just ok. I ordered lasagna & my husband had spaghetti & meatballs. Meatballs were just warm & had to much breadcrumbs in them. Caesar Salads however were delicious. I had a sangria here at our last visit & couldn't wait to order it again; bad decision. The Sangria was awful, to much mango juice & something was missing from it. It was a disappointing night.

    Both couples had been before and after a few suggestions we overwhelmingly agreed to go to Trattoria's. We were seated right away. We had great food and we had an incident where one person spilled his full wine glass into my meal. I would have eaten it as is but a staff member (not our waitress) witnessed it and then brought me a new meal. Amazing service!

    Such a nice spot in the "South County" area of RI. No matter what the weather is like outside it's a lovely spot to be. We go here often as they will take groups of many or few. The food is delightful and they offer gluten-free past. Their Tiramisu is delightful . . . if you have room. Wait staff and maitre d' are always spot on. We have always enjoyed.

    I went there for an anniversary dinner and couldn't happier we choose it. We started out be getting an appetizer with prosciutto around smoked mozzarella, excellent The dinners we had were outstanding. The veal saltmbocca was cooked perfectly and the pasta it was on, you could tell, was freah. She had a chicken dish, which was so good, I didn't even get a taste. To be honest, it was some of the best pasta I had ever eaten, if not the best Great experience and will definately go again

    My husband and I made a last minute reservation just because we were going to be in the area. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We each ordered a dinner that came with soup, and a glass of wine. The meals were way more than we could eat and we took leftovers home and got to enjoy our meals a second time. I keep forgetting how good this restaurant is, and I've got to make a point of going there regularly.

    On the Open Table website reservation there is a place to write down special requests. For the second time I asked to sit on a booth and when I got there they placed me and my husband for our Anniversary in a tiny table close to a large group, we had no space to move or barely fit our food on the table.When I asked about the request for a booth, they simply said: Oh sorry, we had other reservations before yours. Really???? Mine is not important?? Other reservations are better than mine? AND, if they knew they could not provide me the booth, once I made my reservation almost a week before, call me, give me alternatives, different day or time. DOn't wait until I am there and surprise. That says clearly: I don't care about you! Food is great.

    It was my wife's 50th birthday and she wanted to enjoy a nice meal somewhere new. At first the service was good and the gentlemen behind the desk took our jackets. Once we sat down our waitress took our drink and appetizer order then was insisting that we order our meal. We ask that the meal not come out quickly and that we have time to relax between courses. Well that was not the case we sat down at 5pm and the meal was out at 5:35pm, we didn't even have time to finish our appetizers. If you like the feeling of being rushed then this is a great place for you to eat.

    Love the cannelloni bolegnase and Caesar salad. Very reasonable wine list and great bartenders. The special this week, chicken and eggplant pram, was outstanding. My only small criticism is the side veggies. All you ever have is the squash/zucchini combo...and a bit overlooked. I'd love to see some crispy green beans or sautéed garlic spinach or Brussels sprouts. I have mentioned this in the past too. Bar area is also much more relaxed now. Taking names for those seats too makes the waiting less tense!
