A word from Trattoria Diane
Trattoria Diane is a Roman-style, family-run restaurant. We have developed our menu and space to reflect the casual, inviting and friendly spots we have enjoyed on our trips to the Eternal City. The menu offers our take on the traditional Roman menu with its verdure, fritti, antipasta, primi and secondi.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "There were three of us and we all loved our meals; from the appetizer; mussels, main course; lamb shank and duck to the desserts; apple and berry pies."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Quiet room; attentive staff; good food; expensive cocktails."

  • "We have been to Trattoria Diane in a number of occasions and each time the food has been great. The staff friendly and professional. The menu is extensive and the pre fixe menu is great value for money. I would highly recommend this restaurant, you certainly won't be disappointed."

  • "Love the food but they need to change up the menu. Or maybe we just come here too often."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Food was good but the service was terrible. The food was not brought by the waiter who took our order. The waiter who brought our order was gruff and confused. We sat near the kitchen and the waiters were flying out the door at break neck pace. We also had to wait a very long time for our food. Generally, the staff was cold."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We have been here many times but..... At 7 pm they were out of their always popular duck dish. The staff was very inattentive and disorganized. Our food was not hot and certainly not as good as usual. A very off night. Our waiter seemed to be running all over the place, while other staff stood by the stairs. He seemed to have half the dining room while 2 or 3 servers stood around"

  • "We were warned before we dined at Trattoria Diane that they never quite got their act together regarding service. True. When I placed our liquor order I respectfully requested a separate liquor bill because half of our party are non-drinkers. That never happened and the liquor was included in the regular bill . Bread had to be requested multiple times before it appeared. Overall service was slow and we had to summon a different wait person to straighten out an incorrect double billing on our check. They were quite busy on a Sunday but the service was a real drawback. Food was delicious."

  • "food was excellent as always and service was outstanding definitely a neighborhood favorite"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Always a great dining experience . . from the minute you walk in til you leave. There are real gems on the menu too and the staff is completely knowledgeable about what the kitchen is doing. Will continue to go back."

  • "We have dined at Diane's many times and it was always special. We had dinner there last night and was disappointed in both the food and service. We were a party of 4 seated in the end booth next an open ledge. The waiter served us reaching over the top of the ledge. It was both uncomfortable and unprofessional. The food was not as good as we had remembered it to be. One of the pasta dishes ordered was not evenly heated; perhaps it was microwaved. We think twice before dining there again."

  • "Memorable dining experience. Great menu, delicious fish dishes and such creative desserts. I would definitely go back."

  • "I was quite disappointed in our meal. Went with friends to celebrate my birthday. Chicken parmigian burnt, salad requested with dressing on the side. It was on it and donuts for dessert. Hard and cold. They are supposed to be known for their bakery"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Trattoria Diance as My wife and I were celebrating 13 years together. The restaurant which is a little off the beaten track in Roslyn, is also a hidden gem. We were attended to by hospitable wait staff and the food was very good with my wife ordering the duck and chicken parmigian for myself. The food was tasty and memorable. The dining room was lively and there was a good energy. The decor is minimalist and the ambience on the higher energy side as the place was packed by the time we left. We will definitely come back and highly recommend to others."

  • "we eat at diane's a lot; last night off night; brought the fourth entree 15 minutes after everyone else! and not apologetic---not what we expect for a first class place like this"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Food and service were both excellent. Staff very attentive. Nice atmosphere. Was crowded but there is plenty of room between tables so we were still able to hear with no problems. Every dish we had was very good-would recommend"

  • "My husband and I have tried, last minute, to get to Dianes for a few months now. Each time we tried as walk-ins, they were booked. Last minute this last Friday we were able to make reservations. The staff was super, very accommodating- we split the house salad and it was AMAZING! We'd wished we'd have ordered one for each of us! However, I ordered tuna and it was disappointing. My husband ordered pot roast, he thought it was good and I thought it was disappointing. It was better than my tuna, that's for sure. For the money, it just wasn't worth the quality. The staff could not have been more attentive though. My husband wants to go back again and try their pasta instead of writing it off. He read good things about the pasta."

  • "Good Food + Good Service = A Good Time. Once again we brought alone some friends for their first taste of Trattoria Diane's. They were all pleased with our choice. Diane's is our favorite spot on the North Shore."

  • "The perfect place to dine. Wonderful food and service."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "I would highly recommend Diane's for a great meal. This was our first time here and it will surely not be our last time. We thought the menu was going to be more "Italian " and it was not, but that was fine for us as we both ordered fish. My husbands scallops were excellent and my monkfish was also very good but it seemed to come out a bit fried instead of just sauted. Desserts were superb with many to choose from. We ate here on a Sunday, so their " price fix" menu was a great value. We will surely return."

  • "The food was very good. Service pretty good. Our daughter in Texas contacted Trattoria Diane and ordered a small cake; charged 10 dollars to her credit card; was assured it would be delivered to us as our dessert. It was to be a surprise. We had a reservation. On 2/23, she asked us how we enjoyed the cake. News to us. We ordered 2 desserts at 10 dollars per. What ever happened to our special dessert? I had read a recent review of a similar situation where this restaurant never delivered on a similar special request. Trattoria Diane gained an extra 10 dollars from us. Does the staff not communicate about such requests? Blame it on the management. There is a problem here."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Neighborhood favorite... Service and food always good....would definitely recommend this restaurant ."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "From start to finish, the food offerings and the food itself was outstanding! See if you can be seated upstairs if you can. Can get a little loud, but it's not a deterent! Save room for the desserts!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Restaurant is beautiful and the energy was good. Service was somewhat attentive, but not to be faulted because our waitress had the whole front room. The food was poor from start to finish: the wedge salad was warm and limp with old lettuce. The fettucine bolognese was overly sweet and not italian tasting in the least. The chicken parmesan needed a different covering, better cheese, much better red sauce and some salt - absolutely tasteless! Bread basket was also lame considering they are associated with the bakery next store. I would be glad to go back once I hear they've changed chefs and the food improves."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "It was the guys birthdays. The woman with the other gentleman had called the restaurant and asked about a cake for them. We were wiling to bring in a cake, they told her no problem, they would take care of it. Imagine our shock whenNO cake came out. When we left, she talked to the manager, who went upstairs to ask waiter, who said we didn't order dessert, so he didn't bring out cake. They never told her we had to order dessert to get the cake. I guess the wine, appetizers and entrees we ordered were not enough! Very disappointed!"

  • "Enjoyed our dinner as always. Great menu. Love the downstairs room, so comfortable and pretty."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "The food and ambiance at Trattoria Diane are very nice, but the service was not. Our waiter was pleasant enough, but not very skillful. He took a drink order from a late-arriving member of our party, ignoring two others at our table who were drink-less. Water wasn't brought to the table until requested. Coffee was delivered to four of the five at our table, the fifth was forgotten until we could find our waiter… not an easy task. Perhaps because we were in the upstairs room? The last straw was when the waiter got the wrong amount on a credit card… over by exactly $100. All of this overshadowed food which was really quite good."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I love the ambiance in this very comfortable dining room. I dined with six good friends & we all raved about our appetizers: the mussels, blackened shrimp to the corn chowder soup. The main courses equally delicious; Ahi Tuna, Lamb Shank, Duck, Chicken under a brick and Carbonara pasta. We anticipated the desserts being exceptional, since Trattoria Diane has a sister bakery next door and were not disappointed; the fruit pie and apple strudel outstanding. The service very friendly but my only complaint is a bit sluggish; long waits between courses. Could be a bit pricey; i think the $29.95 special three course meal is the way to go;available all day Sunday. I have already recommended Trattoria Diane to friends."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Some minor complaints to detract from an otherwise positive dining experience. The flat breads were stale, seared tuna was tough and very salty, and the profiteroles for dessert tasted were commercial than bakery quality. Cocktails were well made, pours of wine were generous, and service was well paced. Try the roast duck as it was crisp on the outside and tender inside without an excess of fat. Tables are well spaced and couples can actually have a conversation and be heard. Overall, good but not great."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Chicken under a brick. Simple right? Not necessarily. The simplest dishes are often the toughest to get right. Diane's sure does. Perfectly prepared, juicy, delicious. Home run!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner recently at dianes on a very cold winter evening. We shared the spaghetti carbonara, which we loved, had a great bottle of red wine to ward off the chill, and enjoyed 2 splendid entrees, the duck and the diver scallops. Would truly recommend dianes for a really nice evening out."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Always wonderful dining! A few negatives- the noise level at times can be high and the front reservation desk was somewhat disorganized. However, our server was excellent and more than made up for it."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Had the Chicken Parmigiana, rarely have it anywhere since it's such a simple dish (and really not Italian!), but one that is all too often sub-par. Not this one, a beautiful breast with just the right amount of cheese and sauce. Worth a try! Just like Mom's!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The food was excellent, but the night we were there, their computer was down , and so the service and bill preparation was appallingly slow. May be just that night. One definite negative we found was the ridiculously high price of twelve dollars per glass for an unremarkable Merlot."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "the pre fix is a great value, but even if you come later the prices are reasonable for the quality of food. consistent, good service, and hopefully you like Parmesan cheese"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I've been here many times and have always loved it. I ordered the tuna which was a special and was disappointed in the quality. It was veiny and chewy. Nevertheless, I will come back since this was my first unhappy experience."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Loved our dinner great service great ambiance but whoever answered the phone prior to our dinner needs to get their act together we inquired as to the prix fixe menu and was told that they definitely were offering it on Xmas eve but we needed to be seated before 6:30 pm we rushed over and got there on time and then were told that they were not offering it that evening big letdown to say the least"

  • "On this rare occasion, I had a party earlier in the day and was not very hungry. However, just had to keep my reservation, and since my wife was hungry, we went. I decided to have the special seafood salad app for an entree. WOW. By far one of the best seafood salads I have ever had, flavors were complex and the freshness of the seafood was evident. My only complaint was I wanted more!!"
