Diner Reviews
  • "Living in NYC makes you spoiled when it comes to good Italian food. Romano did not disappoint. Start to finish one of the best meals I have had out in a long time. Order the meatball app if it's a special."

  • "This has always been our go to retaurant, but we were very disappointed this time. The noise level was so loud we were unable to converse at our table. We waited for more then 45 minutes for our main course. The Ceaser salad was unforgetable, much like Duffeys. It was a birthday for my husband and they simply put a candle on a plate of cookies (the same as they serve after every meal) sprinkled with sugar. We will not return any time soon."

  • "Great Italian but on the pricey side- but like most things- you get what you pay for. The Snapper oreganata was great. Meatball fantastic."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Never a bad meal here. The bar could be larger as there is always a wait, even with a reservation. Have been coming for years. Always crowded, even in the summer!"

  • "Cannot recommend. The older woman at the door was rude to customers. Do not feel welcome here. Do not go."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "We used to come here quite often but have been treated so badly by the front desk we give up! We dine out every night and went through several periods of going here at least once a week over the last three years thinking they would treat a regular better ??? We let them get through busy season and tried again. We give up! We are the nicest customers - honestly - and after several years of trying to gain a little respect - good bye. And your restaurant is literally a few blocks from our house. We will solely be Casa D'Angelo customers due to the respect they show us and the quality of the food. "

  • "Arturo and his staff sure knows how to make a restaurant hum! Sommelier, waiter, runners, greeters... Everyone was on top of their game and took time to talk to us and make suggestions. A bit noisy, but everyone is having fun..."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "How do they do it? Fantastic food no matter what you order. Soft Shell Crabs wonderful. No matter what you order it is fresh, hot and delicious. The service is impeccable. Pastas are out of this world. The staff is trained to serve the guest . "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "While there are many "GOOD" sources of Italian food in the Boca area, the standard of excellance seems to remain at Trattoria Romana. Both meat and fish dishes can be expected to be done to perfection , favorites being Veal ala Romano and the Yellow Tail snapper. Both presentation of entre and attentativeness of staff are far above average. The only downside is a slightly cramped eating area with a higher than desired noise level. "

  • "Food was phenomenal and service perfect. Pasta and Sauce where home made! "

  • "What ever you're looking for, you will find it here. IF you want a great meal with a little less "action", have dinner during the week. The service is always exceptional but not in your way. IF you want a great meal with a lot of "action", Friday and Saturday nights are perfect. Whether you want to just watch the floor show or be part of it, this is a place where the locals dine, drink and have fun. ALWAYS, ALWAYS EXCEPTIONAL!"

  • "The dinner was superb, from the bruschetta offered at the beginning through the miss"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The biggest problem with Trattoria Romano is that there are so many things on the menu that are exceptionally good! The moment you are ready to order you see another dish pass by your table that looks so good that you second guess yourself! Try everything!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We made the mistake of bringing the kids... but this spot was romantic, the food was amazing and even though it sits right on the street you really did not noticed the noise. Definitely more of a couple spot, but loved it all the small. We'll call the babysitter next time!tableyu"

  • "They were friendly and accommodating, I had the chilian sea bass and it was delicious, my husband had the sea food pasta, he said it light and tasty. The atmosphere is fun."

  • "We were in Boca Raton on a family trip and this restaurant was recommended. So glad we went! It was amazing food with a wonderful atmosphere. Being from New Orleans, we always have a hard time finding restaurants that come close to our dining experiences at home, but Trattoria Romana certainly met our dining expectations ! The tomato appetizer they serve each table is the BEST!! "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Trattoria Romana never fails to satisfy. The food is terrific. At the height of the season it is crowded and the noise level is high, but that is only because it is so good and people flock to this restaurant. The room in the back is quieter and we prefer it. The service is exceptional. You won't be disappointed. "

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "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."
