    The restaurant is located in a very walkable and attractive shopping area that makes strolling after dinner very easy. An outdoor, covered patio has maybe a half-dozen tables and is pleasant, and the inside ambiance is warm, rich, and inviting. Service is consistently efficient, friendly, and attentive. The crusty bread is outstanding, steaks are cooked perfectly to order for meat lovers (there are many choices of beef, veal, poultry, and pasta). The tomato sauce is not acidic or oily - very fresh, with deep flavor. The wine list is extensive, and the bar area is perfectly suitable for dining. We always enjoy ourselves and our meals here.

    This was our first visit; we felt most welcome. The service was professional and warm. Everyone at our table of 6 enjoyed their entrees with great gusto. I ordered the littleneck clams in marinara with angel hair pasta which was "as good as it gets". Absolutely delicious! The menu is extensive. Seeing that there are gluten-free options indicates that Trattoria Romana is in tune with the times. We'll definitely return.

    The appetizer menu was so tempting that the two of us ordered four apps and they all were very good and large portions. Homemade lobster ravoli in a creamy cheese sauce was outstanding. Antipasto had a 12-item assortment which was large and excellent. Large meatball with a side salad and stuffed zucchini flowers both excellent. Service was attentive as was the knowledge of our server. The dining room and bar area looked very nice but we opted to eat on the enclosed porch. The main menu was extensive but we were very happy and satisfied with the apps.

    This was the best meal my husband and I have had at a restaurant in years. With 3 kids and his military schedule we don't get out that much; so when we do we want to enjoy ourselves. This restaurant is well worth the 25 minute drive and we are looking forward to our next date night there. Food, service, atmosphere, and wine list are all amazing. Didn't try the desserts....yet!

    Two of the three of us have been in Italy recently and were impressed by several items on the menu that we had overseas but have not found on menus here. We all enjoyed each of our courses. The pasta was done al dente. Sauces were rich and flavorful. Slightly pricey but worth it.

    Our server, Chelsea was fantastic! Great personality. Our group of friends all felt she was attentive but did not rush us through our night. She provided suggestions when we could not decide which entree to choose. We all had different entrees and they were all awesome! When it came to dessert she even offered to make something not on the menu but would include the fresh fruit of the evening.

    poor choice for romantic evening. we made reservation a few days in advance, and upon our on-time check-in, we were told it would be a 20 minute wait for the requested booth table. place was full and they probably wanted it for a foursome. they had something similar to booth. we didn't know where we were going to be placed. we were given a table instead in the bar area. it was loud. Seated so close together there was no room for personal conversation. patrons who arrived & placed orders after us were served first. our appetizer & salads came at once; . no room for plating of dishes on the "cocktail" table for all the food. Food okay. best thing was the waitress. Would recommend but not for romance.

    My only real complaint with TR is the bread they serve....I know thats piddily. Its consistently burned on the outside and could be more cooked on the inside. I know this is how it is as Ive had it 20+ times. They need to switch to a different kind of bread altogether. Its a let down. Other than that, food and service are great. Desserts are soso. The Molten Chocolate cake is fantastic while others are meh.

    But a 30 minute ride is worth it - the food was very good. The only negative was our waiter. He startled all of us by coming up to the table using a louder than necessary voice. We had barely sat down and 3 out of 4 had not even opened a menu and none had looked at a wine/drink list. We felt rushed until we let him know in a subtle way to back off a bit. Several times he appeared out of nowhere putting his head between myself and the friend next to me as we leaned in to converse. His odd attempt at an Italian accent was distracting at best. Public service is not his forte.

    An Italian restaurant that can easily be compared with the finer ones in NYC. From the moment you enter you are embraced by the ambience, the warm welcomes from the hostess, servers and even the food runners! The meal selections are so vast and intriguing we were almost tempted to order several choices from each category. Our waitress "Dee" was very knowledgable, professional and answered all of our questions. To briefly summarize we found all of our food to be fresh, prepared to taste and was of outstanding quality, especially the veal. We will definitely revisit this fine establishment and I strongly suggest anyone else do the same.

    This was the very best dining experience we have had in some time. We dine out at least once per week at any one of our favorite places. Each is very good in their own right but absolutely not up to the quality of Trattoria Romana. Our waitress, ( I cannot remember her name), could not have been more efficient. She rattled off each dinner special with such precision that we could not wait to enjoy our food. My martini was presented just the way I like it: served up in a carafe, poured at the table and ice on the side. I had Panzanella Alla Romana and Salmon Con Aragosta --- to die for! Trattoria Romana understands Italian food and how it should be served, and I should know, because my mother was Italian and that's what I grew up on!

    First time at the Wakefield location. We had a party of 6 that grew to 7 and then 8 and they accommodated us without any problem. Service was excellent. Food was very fantastic - most of us had veal dishes and they were cooked to perfection. Prices were quite reasonable compared to other restaurants with this ambience in the area. Many of us brought home portions; they were quite generous. We will go back frequently this summer and try other veal dishes and maybe sit at the bar.
