Our family tried this place for Sunday brunch on Easter. Although we were the first three people there, it took over 5 minutes for anyone to come to our table. And it went downhill from there. Food was bland and over priced. Service was poor. Wouldn’t recommend or return.
Excellent food in a clean, airy environment. Wait staff are accommodating though don't talk much and should be instructed to be more friendly. Don't forget the BYOB policy!
Some of the reviews concerned me but they seemed to have a common thread. 1) The restaurant tries too hard to make people happy that are not enjoying their experience (not a terrible thing); 2) there may be some spice (like Cilantro) that tastes off to some people. 3) Know ahead of time this is a BYOB place. With all the essential information, a Friday night prime time reservation, 4 bottles of wine and a couple mini bottles of Crown and Vodka I gathered my party of six and we gave it a try. They were crowded and it took a while to get our appetizers and food but everything was worth the wait and the price. Service was excellent meaning available but not intrusive. No one had anything that tasted off. Everything was excellent we will definitely go back !
Should have wine glasses on table. Waitress chewing gum. Should not have TV. Could improve bread quality . Do not put glasses upside down. Please correct these aspects as you will go broke otherwise.
Michael is an outstanding server! He's quick to get you whatever you need AND he does it all with a smile! We just adore him and always ask for him.
For the ambiance: they need some cafe curtains on the lower half of the windows to make the restaurant more 'finished'. The glare from lights and the traffic from Cooper is a buzz kill ... half cafe curtains would solve this issue.
It's BYOB so don't forget your wine to go with the yummy food!
We have visited Roma Trattoria several times, lunch and dinner. Nice that it is BYOB. The food is never disappointing, but we wish the Chicken Picatta that is served at lunch would be served at dinner - it is fabulous! Everyone enjoyed the meal, especially the lobster ravioli..
We enjoyed our meals as usual and certainly will be back again. They are often less expensive than other Italian restaurants in the area.
Excellent restaurant. Service was fast, warm and friendly. The lobster ravioli in a pink sauce was delicious! There were seven of us in the group and we unanimously agreed that it was a worth another visit.
The service was a mess.
The atmosphere just wasn't that appealing to our group. Service, food, and value were good.
Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere. We will definitely be returning!
we have eaten there on multiple occasions and have always been pleased
It was our first time to dine at Roma Trattoria and we had a thoroughly delightful experience. The food was quite authentic and we enjoyed every bit of it. Our server, Michael, was so much fun and quite knowledgeable about the menu. All in all we truly enjoyed our dinner and look forward to returning to Roma Trattoria!
Great neighborhood spot with BYOB.
Entrees have good depth of flavors and menu has numerous options.
Love the fact that we can bring wine.
This is our 3rd visit and we have enjoyed all of them. This time it included additional family members and our waiter David was spot on even getting a booster seat for our granddaughter’s stuffed animal. Now that is going the extra mile! The food was excellent as usual and we certainly will be back.
Very nice staff. Food was good. Need a few more fish choices
Tried this restaurant and was happy with their service and food.
Great service and great food but kitchen was slow.
Great food! Would highly recommend! We had the Calamari appetizer (Fritto Misto) and it was very good and the Tagliatelle alla Bolognese is amazing. Very authentic food!
We had a reservation, were severed immediately, then we didn’t see a server for 20 mins, they took our order 45 in, and got our food after an hour and a half of being there. Took two hours just to eat entrees. The food was actually pretty good but the menu is limited to a few pastas and chicken dishes. Overall- the service was terrible and the food was just slightly above average.
Great food, but service was slow and full of long gaps.
Great service but to go was a little slow, but they were busy for a Thursday.
I just love this more and more each time I go.
Everything was excellent except for the service. Too many water and bread folks and only one waitress. Very slow and then brought the wrong entree. Food was excellent!!!
Excellent food and excellent service!
This is a gem! The food reminded us so much of our trip to Italy! It was so much more authentic than other Italian restaurants in the area. The service was excellent, the food was great, and it was very reasonably priced! My husband and I went for a date night. We brought our own bottle of wine (this place is BYOB), ordered the caprese salad, the spinach cannelloni, a veal plate, and tiramisu for dessert. Incredible! Can't wait to go back.
Great pesto, great service, great food, great dessert, and BYOB!
Enjoyed it well enough. No front podium makes walking in and checking in kind of weird and unprofessional. Food was pretty good - son loved lasagna. My chicken parm was so-so. Might return, but more likely to head to another fav not that far away.
Thought we’d try a new place and it didn’t disappoint! We will be back.
a welcome addition to south Arlington restaurant scene. authenic italian
