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.

    We had an early reservation on Saturday night to celebrate my daughter's 22nd. birthday. I mentioned to our waitress Chelsea that it was a special occasion for her birthday. I am not from that area and used Open Table to select the restaurant. The food and service were excellent. The only downside was that the waitress did not follow up with the birthday request. My daughter's dessert came to the table unceremoniously and the 5 of us sang to her quietly. When the bill came, they erroneously charged me for a drink that my sister paid for in cash because she ordered and sat before we arrived. If my sister did not note the error, I would not have known. I'd go back again on a special occasion, pricey for everyday dining.

    The restaurant was only half full. The service was slow, with food taking forever to come out of the kitchen. Table next to us was seated well after we were. Yet their dinners came out before ours. They have no gluten free bread although they do have gluten free penne pasta and could accommodate my date's dietary gluten restriction/allergy. Wait staff would socialize near the kitchen window leaving drink and water glasses wanting refills. Sides portions were unceremoniously slopped into the side dishes leaving a trail of food across the side of the plate. The food especially the antipasti and salads were way overpriced for quality and size. They did offer a flour-less chocolate cake. Their ability to process credit cards failed.

    Usually, we have nothing bad to say about any of our experiences at Trattoria Romana but this time there was one problem. My husband ordered gnocchi with a red sauce and asked that the chef go light on the red sauce. Either the waitress did not pass that on to the kitchen or the kitchen went heavy on the red sauce because he could not eat much of the gnocchi. He ultimately passed that on to the waitress who apologized and the cost of his dinner was taken off the bill. We would definitely go back but it was disappointing that it happened.

    Went with a group of six people after a performance at Theater by the Sea. This was our first time to Trattoria Romana in Wakefield. Have been to the one in Lincoln. First the interior is very warm and inviting. Our waiter was very good in all aspects. I thought the drinks were reasonably priced for this type venue. Everybody had a different dish and all were very happy with what they ordered. A couple of us had dessert. I had a gelato dessert that was kind of skimpy.

    We ate outside which was very nice. We had guests visiting us NY. The server was nice but took a long time to come to the table and then she took a very long time to bring our drinks and take our order and let us know about the specials, get our bread ect. Still love TR and would HIGHLY recommend it !

    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.

    Last night 8/30/14 was the first time we had disappointing service. We sat at the bar and had to ask someone to check on our order (after 40 minutes of waiting). Food was "found" and served almost cold. Clearly there were coordination problems between bartenders (whom did not appear to be working collaboratively) and whomever brings food.

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.
