Expensive but food is excellentWe had the veal chop with mushrooms and the shrimp scampi. Both were delicious. The shrimps were big and I've never had a veal chop that bit. They had a good selection of wine by the glass. Try the baby amarone....mmmm good.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal Italian FoodThis is the best Italian Food in South Florida (or maybe anywhere).

Great attentive service. We had a wonderful time as usual at Trattoria Romana. It can be noisy but if we get a quieter spot, it is worth it. We love this restaurant!!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian FoodThere were 4 of us so we decided to order appetizers first & once we finished them we all decided to split 2 whole fish between the 4 of us. The apps. were delicious. One of their specials was my favorite, the veal stuffed meatball. Very light and delicious. Probably the best we have ever eaten. Calamari was very light also. Some salads excellent. I shared the yellow tail Snapper with a livernois sauce, and our friends shared a Snapper Oreganata. Both were exccellent. Thank you Bobby, always a great waiter, you made our evening.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat Italian foodfresh and delicious food, great choice of everything and it's all good. great service, be sure to make a reservation, especially in season5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful dinnerWe always look forward to dinner at Romana.

We had a wonderful table and our waiter Bobby, could not do enough for us. When we 1st sat down he brought Bruchetta, with fresh tomatoes, and some wonderful breads in a basket..He then explained in detail the dishes that we were interested in trying, and was very patient. I ordered Bronzini Livornese & it was excellent. Just the right amount of Tomatoes, olives, capers and fresh garlic buds. My hubby had the special of linguini with Shrimp, Clams & Crab. and his sister had the same but with a whole wheat pasta. They both loved theirs. We did not have enough room for desert, but they sounded wonderful. We will definitely go back5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTrust in Trattoria!Several times lately, I have taken a new acquaintance or group of friends who have high expectations to Trattoria Romana. My guests have been delighted with the menu, the wine list and the quality of the food. The congenial, timely service helps to make each visit special. Every guest has enthusiastically said that they look forward to their next visit and has complimented my choice.
Recently, I had to let the restaurant know on a weekend night that I would be late for my reservation...and additionally, that I would be adding two people to my party. This news was graciously accepted and our table was waiting for us when we arrived.
Thanks, Trattoria Romana, for many memorable evenings.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best!With so many excellent Italian restaurants in Boca, this definitely shot to the top of my list.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat but very expensiveGood is wonderful, prices are very high! Service is great!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerMy wife and I went here for my birthday. The food was great, a little expensive, but very good. It is a little loud, but we had a corner that wasn't too bad. Our server was great, knew we wanted to take our time, and didn't rush us.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe sat at the bar and hadWe sat at the bar and had dinner ...

The food, service and ambiance is excellent. It is remarkable to find a restaurant whose quality of customer service and cuisine has maintained a consistent high standard for such a long time. A little pricey, but well worth it...!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Outstanding !!Consistently one of the best restaurants in South Florida.Always busy so don't hesitate to eat at the bar. Bartenders Joey and Christina are spot on and you'll enjoy the service. The nightly specials are incredible and no special request is ignored. All of the servers are true professionals and know the menu inside and out. The wine list is extensive with unique selections. We have been going here for years and have never had a bad experience. The true mark of a great restaurant is consistency. This place serves up consistently good food and service.We strongly encourage you to try it.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter, unlike the receptionOur waiter, unlike the reception desk, was extremely friendly. He was also very knowledgeable and helpful. That was a big plus. Although I did not order the most challenging dishes, the food was really excellent. We started with a fantastic meatball that the three of us shared. I had a puttanesca that was among the best ever - I often don't order this simply because so many places don't get it right - or at least the way I like it. The other two people we were with also liked what they got, but I really didn't pay that much attention to them. On the negative side was the noise level and the wait beyond our reservation time. Both those things, however, were within my tolerances (barely).4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne word sums up the foodOne word sums up the food & service - EXCELLENT! By far, one of my favorite restaurants in Boca.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always this restaurantAs always this restaurant never fails, Everything was perfect!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat seafood, extensive menu.great seafood, extensive menu. partial to the regulars.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough it's a bit noisyAlthough it's a bit noisy and always crowded (good for them, but annoying for customers that have reservations and still have to wait), the food is always delicious. Especially love the bruschetta that your waiter brings in the beginning of the meal and the great cookies at the end---very nice special touches. A bit pricey.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellantGreat food and service!! Make a reservation you can not just walk in!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy New Boca FavoriteOur extended family of six enjoyed a delicious meal here. Had to make reservations 3 weeks in advance so you know this place is good. Atmosphere is small and intimate, very far away from a chain type restaurant experience. I loved the brushetta complimentary appetizer & bread basket. The tomatoes were amazing. The specials are extensive so don't be afraid to ask your server to repeat. Had the lobster special on spinach, was exquisite. The desserts left a little to be desired. Cannoli nothing outstanding, nor was the coconut sorbet. The lemon sorbet was very good. If you have the appetite, order the mammoth strawberry shortcake (big enough for 2-3 people) which appears to be the signature dessert. It looked lovely. Will return3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss it while in Boca!!Don't miss it while in Boca!! We dined there a few nights ago and loved it.. The service, food and overall experience was outstanding. Don't feel that you must be in New Jersey or New York to get great Italion meal. We were never rushed at all during the night. Great Seafood and Pasta.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find!I travel to Boca about six times a year to visit family. We go to a lot of restaurants. Coming from New York we tend to think the food is only great in New York. (Or Italy) Well we went to Tratoria Romano for the first time. All I can say is it stood up to all of them. The meatball appetizer, the gnocchi and the veal chop were amazing.We shared desserts which melted in our mouths.The wine list was fabulous. They stocked our favorite Amarone. And, the service was beyond compare.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for my husbandsWe went here for my husbands 40th birthday. He had the pompano fish and spicy arbiatta pasta.
