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 excellent although the service was a bit slow and a large group in the adjoining dining area was very loud, but probably not typical. The veal francaise was especially good and the linguine Was loaded with clams and I would recommend this restaurant.

We arrived at 7 and still no food at 8:40 and they told us there was a problem in the kitchen and one more table needed to be served before me. The only person who handled this bad situation with us was the server, Bridget. We left without food

Will not go back

My husband and I went to dinner at Core de Roma for New Year's Eve. We have been here many times and the restaurant never disappoints. Reservations are suggested, especially on the weekend. Being a BYOB is very nice. The restaurant can get a bit noisy during busy times. The owner met us at the door and brought us to our table and chatted with us for a minute. He also stopped by our table during our meal to make sure that everything was going well with our dinner. It's certainly a nice touch. He is from the Trastevere neighborhood in Rome which explains why the food is so authentic and the menu is northern Italian cuisine.

Being that it was NYE, we had a choice of a Prix Fixe menu or a limited menu with great choices. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. I had Matriciana and my husband had Ravioli with crab and lobster. Our waitress was very attentive and we never felt rushed. Dining at Core de Roma was a great way to spend New Year's Eve! We will definitely be going back.

We had a family of 10 celebrating our wedding anniversary. The food is priced a little high but it was well prepared. I was disappointed to be seated right inside the door in the bar area. But it was quiet, which was important given elderly parents were with us and wanted them to be able to hear the conversation. Also they had only one waitress and one chef that night, so it took over an hour to get ur food after ordering. And the waitress was good but didn’t have enough time to be attentive to our table. I think this would be better for a couple going on a date night with no other destination afterwards (e.g., a movie).

Love their food. Brought my parents there for the first time and they loved it as well. I ordered their special osso bucco pork.....OMG so good! Their Cesar salad is delicious! My dad ordered the core de Roma special....Veal and crab with spinach and cheese.
The service is fantastic and the owners really care and appreciate the business.
