Core de Roma Trattoria is a casual BYOB, intimate, family owned Trattoria, offering authentic Roman cuisine while upholding the best of Roman tradition. Some examples of our mouth watering Roman delicacies include our signature Artichokes alla Core de Roma, Saltimbocca, and Bucatini alla Matriciana. Contrary to what some people say, we spelled our name as "Core de Roma" intentionally, meaning "The Heart of Rome" in our family's dialect. Our ultimate goal is to make all of our customers feel like family through our cozy atmosphere, friendly service, and home-made dishes. At Core de Roma you can expect the true heart of Rome in the heart of West Chester.

The food was phenomenal. My lovely date brought wine which they immediately opened for us. They started us off with bread and olive oil and a bean side dish. We ordered an appetizer size of homemade gnocchi which just melted in your mouth. Our entrees were perfectly timed and just as delectable. We ended the night with homemade cannolis. It was a phenomenal dinner and I highly recommend.

Had a delicious Valentine's Day dinner at Core de Roma. Food was really delicious, and the owner and all servers worked together to ensure that all customers were satisfied. This is a gem of a restaurant.

We had a lovely Valentine dinner with another couple . We enjoyed a calamari appetizer that was lightly coated and tender . Our salads were enjoyable and the mozzarella caressed salad was especially delicious and could have been an appetizer . The entrees were equally good and the portions were generous . A cappuccino and the light lemon cake completed a wonderful meal . The service was friendly and attentive despite being a busy night . We had a great meal at a reasonable price in a cozy setting . Bring your favorite bottle of wine . It’s a byob .

Delightful Valentine's Day Lunch!

We had a wonder lunch. The food was excellent. I had delicious chicken marsala with angel hair pasta on the side and a very good cesar salad. My husband began the meal with an excellent calamari salad and loved his branzino fish sautéed in butter. We split a delicious cannoli and ended the meal with a cappucino and an expresso. The music was pleasant Italian singing.
A perfect meal!

Always love coming here, whether it’s just for dinner out with friends or a date night with the wife. Gigi is fantastic and he and his wife’s food(especially the desserts) are amazing! Top Italian destination in West Chester area.

We were warmly greeted and given a good table, in a quiet corner. The food was fabulous, as always. Our server was friendly and accommodating to requested alterations. Core de Roma is always a terrific dining experience.

The ambiance, decor and food was very good. My date had the salmon special and thought it was very good except for the kale as a vegetable. I had chicken parmigiana and it was also very good and huge portion. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the service. Understaffed and owner preferred talking to friends rather than assisting his servers.
