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.

Diner Reviews
  • "Food is excellent, although a little pricey. $19 for a shrimp cocktail, with three shrimp is absurd, entrée prices are acceptable for the quality of food served. Great service, good atmosphere!"

  • "We were a party of eight,we enjoyed our visit very much"

  • "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."

  • "Our group of six was seated within 15 minutes of our reservation. Service was prompt and our waitress was excellent and helpful with selections. We do wish, though, that at least one side be included with meal. All entrees were well prepared."

  • "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."

  • "Brought appetizer wrong. Had to wait 20 minutes more while company had theirs. Entree timing was off. Decided against dessert. Food was mediocre. Not great service as no one even bothered to apologize for the delay"

  • "We use to love this place. But for now, Mother always said if you have nothing nice to say: say nothing at all."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I was so happy that one of the specials was rack of lamb--my favorite. It was cooked to perfection and the presentation was attractive. It came with grilled asparagus, roasted potatoes, mushrooms, tomato topped with a sauce, and mint jelly. What more could you ask for. It was delicious."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."

  • "wanted one 'fine dining' experience while away at the beach to offset the lobster and chowder, chose the Trattoria out a few others, couldn't have been better, I'm fussy and food and service and walked away a most happy man......"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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."

  • "Great food! A little noisy but prefer that over quiet. Service excellent"

  • "so many wonderful reviews from close friends my husband and I and family guests were so looking forward to Trattoria Romano so sorry to say the calamari was soft almost spongy and the filet of sole undercooked veal not tender angel hair and mashed potatoes excellent server was wonderful and food served was well timed"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Love the atmosphere and of course the menu choices are wonderful. We were a party of 4 and we were seated in the main dining room. Very comfortable and the waitress was very attentive to us. We were pleased with the overall experience. We have been very satisfied every time we visit Trattoria."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "My husband and I have dined here on numerous occasions and can honestly say that we have never had a bad meal or bad dining experience at this restaurant. When our out of state friends come to visit, Trattoria Romana is our first choice of restaurants."

  • "Wonderful meal, very nice decor, great service, not much else to say!"

  • "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."

  • "We chose Wakefield to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed a champagne sangria, it looks like summer in a glass. The food lived up to the high expectation we expect from the establishment. The perfect place to celebrate."

  • "Another great dining experience. The food was fantastic as usual as was the service."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Food was very good as always but service was terrible which is not usually the case. And, the restaurant was not particularly which sometimes explains why there is a delay with food delivery. This was surprising and it was also surprising that the manager did not seem to try to do anything to keep us from being very unhappy."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Ambience and service were excellent. Prices were high for an Italian restaurant. Food was okay."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "This restaurant has something for everyone in an extensive menu that should appeal to all tastes. In our party of five (4 adults, plus one child) each person ordered a dish that he/she raved about. I especially appreciated the home-made pasta dishes, ceasar salad, crusty hot bread, and gelato. Service is "leisurely" so get in the European mood and savor your meal."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We've been to the Trattoria Romana (South) several times and it's always been outstanding. This time was somewhat less than outstanding. It was the Saturday night before Father's Day so it was very busy, ..busy enough so that they could not fulfill our request for a table by the window in the pub section. They wanted to seat us instead along a wall where one has to sit in a booth type of seat. We opted for a small table in the main dining room which had two chairs. Our server, Nichole, was very good and had all the specials memorized BUT - she spoke so fast, about 25 megabits per second, that we could not understand her clearly. Only caught about every fourth word. Other than that the dinner and service was very good."

  • "We had been here a couple times before, but were not overly impressed. However, we took a chance on it again for my wife's birthday and were very pleasantly surprised by what we perceived as a vast improvement. The food was prepared perfectly, and was nice and hot; and the sauces were "to die for". If you tried it before, like us, and haven't gone back, I strongly recommend you try it again. Some places rate it as a $$ restaurant, but I would make that $$1/2; but worth it. It has definitely hit its stride."

  • "We recommend ordering dishes that include homemade pasta only. Not all their pastas are homemade."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food was good however I found the steak I had was lacking seasoning maybe they should try a pepper crust"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "The dinner menu was almost overwhelming, long enough for the pages to be numbered. There were several appealing options and I settled on the chicken sorrentino (with eggplant). Very satisfying. One issue I had was that every single fish dish on the menu contained some kind of shellfish, to which I am allergic. And many of the other dishes in other sections contained ham. I think they could get a little more creative with their dish design. All in all, it was an enjoyable meal. No rush, good service, bread right out of the oven and ample portions."

  • "We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened...we have never had anything but the best meals! "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We have found Trattoria Romana a consistantly excellent dining experience. The extensive menu gives so many wonderful choices and the quality has never disappointed us. The service is outstanding. Management obviously has taken staff training seriously and any contact with staff is friendly, cordial, and professional. The manager on duty visited us to make sure we were being taken care of and was attentive to all the activities in the restaurant. We are seasonal residents in the area have been to the restaurant about 6 times over the last couple of years. It has become one of our area favorites and have no reservation recommending it to others. It is moderately priced and the generous portions are well worth the cost."

  • "We enjoy Trattoria Romano in Wakefield for several reasons. It fits the bill for any occasion. Casual or a Saturday Night Special. Basic Italian like its Veal Parm or select one of their special combination plates. Delicious appetizers, salads, or soups or just nimble on their bread basket. Keep it simple and leave with a bill under $75 or go the full way, apps or salads, main course, bottle of wine, desert and coffee. Trattoria Romano can do it all. It was my birthday and we enjoyed an appetizer of sliced tomatoes and soft mozzarella and we each had a different veal dish. Wine accompanied our meals and we finished with decaf cappuccino. Service on this busy Saturday night was good. They know how to do it right here."
