Diner Reviews
  • "I grew up in Naples, worked in the Venice area, and my wife and I had our honeymoon in Tuscany two years ago..it was like we were transported to Italy, but exponentially better. Without a doubt, make a reservation, and bring an appetite for a truly romantic evening."

  • "Overall it was the greatest meal we've ever had. I can't think of anything they fell short on. Will always remain our favorite restaurant in Boca."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Trattoria Romana continues to be outstanding. We no longer ask for a menu..we either know our favorites, mine is the mushroom salad, Veal Parm and unbelievable Crab Cake with Vodka Sauce, which my wife and I share. My wife selects a fresh fish selection, but this time went with a special Eggplant Parm that was fantastic. Great service, too. One of our favorites."

  • "This was the best food I've had in fla. This season and I used to own a restaurant!! The shrimp saltimboca was to die for-- amazing! The red velvet cake also great.expensive but well worth price"

  • "I've been eating here for years and the food never disappoints. The wait for your table is always obscene, even with a reservation at 9:30pm we were told we'd have to wait 20-30 minutes for our table. So, for the first time in all of the years, my wife and I sat at the bar to dine last night. Joe from New Jersey was our Bartender / Server and the service was nothing short of excellent. Veal Chop Romana, Snapper Oreganata, our favorite Chianti, a couple of cappuccinos and the cookies make this a tasty experience. Well worth the over-the-top price!"

  • "This was my first time here and I was very pleased. Nico our waiter was friendly and knowledgable. I had the Veal Romana and it was delicious and the portion was large. My only complaint was that it was rushed. As soon as one plate was lifted, another was placed. There was no time to sit back and take a break. I will definitely come back on my next trip thru but this time, unfortunately, it will be up to me to control the speed of the dining experience."

  • "Great food, a varied menu, all in all a lovely restaurant"

  • "Food was exquisite, and the portions quite large, as are the prices. But worth it. The veal chop pounded on the bone with prosciutto served in a Marsala sauce is both huge and fabulous. The service was incredible - friendly, knowledgeable, thoroughly professional."

  • "Romana is our favorite S. Florida restaurant. Their specials are always wonderful."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "The place is attractive. Service is friendly. Food is very good. Big portions. But the preparations are kind of heavy handed. Our fish served Livornese style was smothered in sauce. We prefer a more refined, lighter presentation. Yes, prices are extremely high…but it's Boca. So don't be surprised. One thing that is a bit "off-putting" as others have mentioned is that when you drive into the valet, as you exit the car you have every scratch pointed out to you by the valet. While I understand the necessity for this these days, it is not the most pleasant way to start your dining experience. In general, if you are paying these prices, I think their main competition down the street is more successful at delivering overall quality."

  • "Best food hands down in south fla. Consistent and delicious every time."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "We heard so much praises about this restaurant, came highly recommended so we took the 30 mins drive and made our reservations in advance. I might have ordered the wrong dish but definitely, the seafood salad is bland, the seafood pasta is another bland item. Tiramisu was great. Over all no big deal to make a 30 mins drive."

  • "Absolutely wonderful! I was visiting Florida from New York, escaping the miserable weather. As a New Yorker, a cook and Italian I tend to be a bit of a food snob yet, Trattoria Romana fit the bill, the food was delicious I had the Osso Bucco Which just melted in your mouth my sister had the fish which she said was just perfect. We had the roasted peppers and cheese and prosciutto and beet salad as the appetizer delicious. Our waiter Nick was great he was extremely knowledgable about the menu and the extensive wine list. He chose a perfect full bodied red wine for me. We were so full that we didn't have dessert. But the cappuccino was just right. I will make this restaurant a must every time I'm in Florida.which is quite often."

  • "All was good just thought it was over priced for what you got."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "The most important thing is that the food is beyond great! The service is great! They notice what you need and excel at getting it to you fast. The food comes at a pace that makes you know they spent the time to do it well. The decor is fun and interesting. It is crowded and loud, but one doesn't mind because one is so glad to be able to get in to dine there. We were in Boca Raton for 5 nights last week and went there twice for dinner. I definitely, wholeheartedly recommend Trattoria Romana."

  • "Appetizer was very good. Wife's dinner excellent. Ordered sole special. Terrible. Substituted pompano but not much better but edible. If I did go back would not order fish!"

  • "If you're lucky they have burratta--have it if they do, it's the best. Food is excellent. Tender veal. Great sauces. Wait staff attentive. Will be there anytime we're in the area. Ara was a delightful and extremely professional waiteress."

  • "The restaurant had been highly recommended by friends. The atmosphere is high ® nervy, but the food was disappointing and overpriced. My swordfish was badly over cooked. All entrees had the same side dishes, bland brocolli and carrots. Desserts were very uninspired. This is a very expensive restaurant and nothing about the food was unusual or memorable."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Dinner here is NOT TO BE MISSED! From the moment we left our car with the valet (car wash/vacuum available for a fee) entire evening was wonderful and energetic! All things positive are stated about restaurant. Food - excellent, service even better! Our server, Julio, so accommodating and attentive making the experience joyful. However, we were seated at a banquette table, with adjacent tables VERY nearby. Noise level -extremely high, making it difficult to hear conversation at our table. The advantage is that although adjacent tables were very close, we couldn't hear them, and, hopefully, they couldn't hear us. This restaurant is definitely worth trying again to see if noise level is different on another evening."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "First time back since the remodel and found one of my favorite restaurants very disappointing. Food was very average as was the service. I don't mind spending the money if the food is good but this left me wishing i had gone somewhere else."
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "the portions were very tasty and large. It is expensive unless you just order a pasta dish for around $20. I had a veal chop parmigiana which was excellent for about $45. So with one appetizer, one glass of wine, 2 dinners and 1 dessert the bill came to over $150 . So you are paying for excellence. Reservations on the weekend are a must"

I had a veal chop pounded thin parmagiana style that was incredible. My GF had the sea bass which was excellent. Always mygo to restaurant."

  • "Two couples went for dinner and we were seated right away. It was not crowded at 6:30pm. By the time we left it was completely full.. The wait staff was excellent and presented the specials in a very nice way. Everyone had a great meal. My veal chop with red peppers and mushrooms was so big, I took the rest home and had a second meal. The martini's were made to perfection. This was our second time here and we will definitely be back."

  • "The food was good. Our waitress Ora, was very good. The other servers who assisted her were sloppy! I returned home to find stains ALL OVER my shirt. The back of the shirt, the collar and back of the arm area below the the shoulder. Be prepared to sacrifice a shirt and wear an old one!!"
