Diner Reviews
  • "We were a group of seven and everyone loved their meals. The caprese salad was made using heirloom tomatoes, I have not tasted tomatoes like that in decades, what a treat! For dinner, I ordered Cannolli Boulanese, generous portion, excellent flavors. Highly recommended"

  • "A wonderful return visit! Starting cocktails were well-prepared and hit the spot. Shared appetizers were plentiful and delicious. Entrees were great - Vitello Boccacini was fantastic! Good portions all around. Excellent desserts, especially the strawberry "parfait." Service was very good, attentive without being intrusive. Overall another great meal. Highly recommend. Although, we always specify the inside dining room because other parts of the restaurant can be noisy."

  • "I have been at this resturante for many occasions. I had my after the wedding brunch here. Can't tell you how all my guests reacted to the great food and service. I always bring my clients here. Couldn't be treated by the staff any more like friends and family. Luciano is the best. Met him yesterday again to tell him what a great place this is for dining."

  • "I would never give 5 stars to any review of any kind just out of principal but Trattoria Romana is certainly a very strong 4. Food and service was outstanding. Perfect place to bring business guests from out of town."

  • "my 91 year old dad from Florida loved it. He was an Aurora Club member for years when he was in a business in the oil company. The fine dining reminded him of those days. We had a party of five people and everyone was pleased."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We arrived on time and the restaurant was mobbed. The bar was busy and we had to wait a while for our table but no more than 15 minutes. I had requested a quiet table and was concerned when we first sat that it would be hectic because it was near the hostess area but once we got settled it was fine. Appetizers were wonderful (rolled eggplant). A variety of main courses were ordered and all were wonderful . One guest had a veal dish and said it was the best veal he'd had in ages. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed and will surely go back again."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "My wife and I took another couple to the Lincoln location on Saturday evening 8/2 and while it was very crowded we did have reservations and had only a 10-15 minute wait. Seating in the right side dining room was very tight so much so the waiter had to walk around the entire length of the room to bring our food. The main concern however was that two of the means did not come with vegetables which were not noticed until we left the restaurant. Also the waiter seemed anxious to take out plates when we paused eating. My wife had to firmly tell him to leave her plate when he took it a second time. Our typically visits are excellent but this night seemed more like dining in a fast food restaurant."

  • "I requested intimate seating for my family & they gave me a wonderful U shape booth. Waiter was pleasant, knowledgable, & attentive. 2 of us devoured the nights specials, & rest loved mela off menu. I've dined here numerous times & certainly return. Did not disappoint on my anniversary!"

  • "My husband and I went to Trattoria Romana for our anniversary. We had a wonderful evening. Our waitress was awesome! The food was exceptional. I had the veal francese with angel hair pasta that was cooked to perfection. My husband had the veal parm which he said was the best he ever had. We were also treated by the staff to a complimentary champagne toast since it was our anniversary. I thought that was such a nice touch. For dessert, we shared a dish of strawberries with gelato and whipped that was delicious!"

  • "My wife and I were given a gift card to the restaurant. This would be our first time there. I really liked the restaurant's look and feel. We had a very good server who was very attentive. The food was great. One of the co-owners came by and introduced herself, which I thought was a nice gesture. All in all a great time."

  • "We have long loved the dining experience at Trattoria Romana. The food is wonderful and so are the vast majority of the servers. I have always said that it is just like eating on "The Hill" (Providence's Federal Hill) without the horrendous parking."

  • "I went for my first time on Saturday evening with three friends. We sat outside, enjoyed the jazz, loved the martinis, apps and entrees. Our server, Sara, was excellent. All four of us look forward to returning to try out other meals (and drinks). It was a great night!"

  • "My wife and I brought (2) relatives to dinner at Trattoria Romana on Saturday, 7/12/14. The menu choices were great, plenty of selection and varied. We ordered the calamari appetizer and it was a generous size and very good quality. I won't detail all of the entree's we ordered but all four of us were very please with the ambience, quality of the food and service."

  • "I haven't visited Trattoria Romana in a couple years. It was OK back then, I don't remember it being anything special back then. Things have changed. The service is very good. Our waiter (Brendon) was excellent. I don't know if they have a new chef now the the food is now outstanding! The items on the menu are reasonably priced, specials of the day can be on the pricey side. I had the pork shank special, it was money well spent, couldn't finish it, took it home. Drinks were very good, decent wine list. I'm going to put this place into my dining rotation. They have some outdoor dining, too windy that day, they should have brought the entertainment inside to play, from what I heard he was very good."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I would definitely recommend Trattoria Romana. It is some 15 minutes from Providence, a city with many quality restaurants already. This place is worth the trip. Very extensive selection of very good dishes for reasonable prices. Just remember to secure a reservation first. This place is popular."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Our dining experience was outstanding. We went for our anniversary and my wife indicated as such on Open Table to insure that our reservation was not lost (she read reviews this sometimes happens). We were pleasantly surprised when the waitress brought two small glasses of champagne and said happy anniversary. We did not order them. We thought, and they were portrayed as, complimentary. However, we were charged for them. A small charge but that is not the point. It's just wrong to bring something to a table unsolicited and then charge the customer. Very bad policy that left a lasting bad final impression. Again, overall fantastic. Just beware of this policy."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food and service were excellent. The only complaint I had was, it was too dark. The lighting was very dim, I couldn't read my menu. My wife and I both had to ask the waitress to tell us what came with the meal we were ordering. I tried everything but couldn't see the smaller print in the dark."

  • "This was our first time at Trattoria Romana and it was amazing. We were kind of in a crunch time due to a concert and they were very accommodating. Amazing food and wine list. We will for sure be back."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Anoher very good meal. Reservations without a hitch, great service, all meals perfect, desert to die for and a relaxing meal. Music a bit too high, but our seat was directly under a speaker. They could maybe lower the sound. All else very very good. Specials to go along with the regular menu just add to the many many choices. We will be back !"

  • "Visiting from California and we find one of the best Italian restaurants we have ever been to and we love Italian food, You can always tell a good Italian restaurant by its bread - and that did not disappoint. The veal dish was amazing as was the pasta. Perfectly cooked and the sauce had a hint of sweetness. Sangria was also very good, Can't wait to come back to town, this place will be on the top of the list."

  • "When making my online reservation, I pointed out My Wife and I were celebrating her Mom's 86th Birthday hoping that someone would acknowledge her day! However our meal came to an end and no-one mentioned anything, needless to say I was very disappointed in this lack of consideration. Although the food was good, I feel your staff could have been a little more considerate of this special day for my Mother-in-law."

  • "My wife and I chose this restaurant for a family gathering to celebrate our daughter's birthdays. Though we do not frequent this restaurant as much as we would like, we have always found the food, service, ambience, and noise level to be nothing less than excellent. On this occasion we had the good fortune of being seated in a new area for us just off the main dinning area. With lots of windows, this area has plenty of natural lighting that gives the impression of eating outside. With a party of 5 we were seated at a round table with plenty of room. It was perfect! Our wait time for drinks, ordering, receiving our meals, and the overall service provided by our waiter was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant! "
