    I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The ceasar salad was fresh and tasty. We ordered chicken parmigan and veal parmigan and both where amazing. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. Overall this was an amazing experience and the food is to die for.

    I normally take business associates to Trattoria Romana to give them a "taste" of RI's finest, this restaurant never disappoints on every level; great food, ambiance, and service. Terrific variety for all foodies including vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and of course those just looking for excellent food prepared as is.

    We had an 8:15 pm reservation but arrived at 7:30 to have a drink at the bar before dining. The bar was crowded but we managed to get a seat after about a 5 minute wait. We had a drink as planned and at 8:15 our name was called which was surprising given the fact that the place was pretty busy. We were seated, ordered another drick and an appetizer which came in a very reasonable amount of time. and was excellent The waitress was very good. My wife ordered the lamb shank special and I ordered the veal chop special. The meals were hot, the time frame in which they arrived was perfect. I have to say that both meals were outstanding with no complaint. After dinner we then ordered coffee and a piece of pumpkin cheesecake to split. The coffee came right away but the cheesecake (which was excellent) did not come until we reminded the waitress, thats why 4 stars for service instead of 5. The place was a bit loud due to the fact that it was a full house, not a big deal. Overall a great dining experience and will definately be returning in the near future..

    I found the pastas to be exceptional and served hot and with great style. The wine list especially Italian and Spanish was deep and reasonably priced. This place has to be the top ltalian restaurant in Rhode Island and that says a lot about how good it is.

    Not a great experience to celebrate our anniversary. The room we were seated in was so noisy that we had a hard time communicating with each other. Service was slower than usual. And while the food was very good, it was not served hot. Disappointed.

    The food and service were excellent. The noise level can be a bit high but conversation generally could be heard. The food was served relatively quickly and hot. The bread delicious flavored oil was replaced without being requested. The overall experience was very good.

    This is my 3rd visit to Trattoria within the past 4 months... The food is always excellent. The side dining room can be NOISY! We were seated there and took up he hostesses offer of moving to a different room. Our waiter (Jamie) spent most of the night telling us why he was such a great waiter but the table next to us served 2 different parties in the time it took for our dinner to be completed. Jamie should take it down a notch or 2 and just do his job of serving tables. Dinners can be expensive, they offer entrees for over $45. (Our entrees were $28.95) Portions are large (needed a doggy bag) and quality of food was excellent.

    After arriving at the restaurant just prior to our reservation time, we were seated promptly in one of the dining rooms with a fireplace and fountain. It took awhile for someone to acknowledge our presence, but when she came, she was apologetic and offered us an appetizer on the house as an apology for the wait. The appetizer (calamari) came almost immediately. Our server, Jamie?, arrived shortly after to inform us of the specials and other menu items. Because my husband is a fussy eater, they were able to accommodate his request of pasta with sausages. My meal was delicious (the Bocconcini Della Nona al Vin Santo). Warm foccacia bread with oil was also very good. Tiramasu and chocolate mocha truffle cake were awesome! Highly recommend.

    We made reservations to celebrate a special occasion. We were made to wait while others were seated ahead of us and when we were seated it was at a tiny table next to the kitchen. We had a table on either side of us so it felt like we were dining with them as well. I expressed how unhappy I was. The manager told us we could wait for another table but we had already waited 20 minutes and I had told them when I made the reservation that it was a special occasion. They brought us each a glass of champagne and comped our appetizer but I was still disappointed in the evening. I will not rush back.

    I have eaten at the "Tratt" dozens of times and I have never had a bad meal. The servers are all extremely pleasant and knowledgeable and will easily accommodate special requests. The food is great, always piping hot and absolutely delicious. I highly suggest visiting this restaurant and its affiliates next door.

    The person who was our waiter had an attitude of I don't really want to be working here.she took our orders, gave us incorrect information, and we never saw her again except when she brought the check. In fact, I was so annoyed with the lack of service, I only gve her a 15 percent tip instead of a20 percent. She really put a damper on an expensive dinner and embarrassed me as the host of the dinner.

    We always enjoy this restaurant! It's a wonderful spot that is an easy drive from our home. We are always amazed at how many people attend this place on any given day! We did make a reservation for a Tuesday night and still had to wait a bit for our table - which I don't really understand especially since the table was ready. The food is so good but the service is a little slow. We had to wait quite a bit between courses, which is fine, but again for a Tuesday night...it doesn't really make sense. It all worked out but it is worth mentioning.

    Very disappointed in food for the price. Dishes were very small with lackluster flavor. A highly priced app of zucchini flowers were so small it appeared they have actually been cut in half. Description was zucchini flowers stuffed with prosciutto and mozzarella fried in peroni batter. They arrived at the table each no bigger than a thumb. They were a quarter of the size they should've been priced more than double compared to other restaurants I've dined at. Very beautiful restaurant however the food is not nearly worth what you will pay.

    Only one criticism. The place was very busy and we had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. We arrived on time with our whole party and stood around for the 20 minutes. Once seated, it did take a while until our waitress arrived to take our drink order. This is about our 4th or 5 th time there and it was our longest wait with an Open Table restaurant. We keep taking new people there and felt we waited a little too long. The food is always excellent which is why we keep going back.

    Good food but they were over booked and had to wait 45 minutes with no place to stand and getting bumped by other patrons. That does not make for a good night. They should pay attention to a person comfort because there are too many fantastic restaurants in the area to choose from.

    We wanted to go to the restaurant for a special occasion mean; which also meant taking our two children under 4 with us. Admittingly, we were the first reservation of the evening (for a reason) and the hostesses and wait staff are definitely not used to children dining in the restaurant. Despite this, the experience and dinner was amazing.

    We were seated after a brief delay. We'd arrived early to get a seat at the bar, but none were available. I ordered sangria while standing at the bar. The drink my husband got me was unusual and very good. Sparkling wine had been used in place of red. Our food was tasty. We had veal done in Marsala, spaghetti with meatballs, tilapia, and lasagna. The meat was well prepared, but in all cases, the pasta was overcooked, tending to spoil the dish.
