Hadn’t been here in years: hoping we could eat outside but weather inclement. Food was above average and service was adequate but not stellar.

We drive 2-1/2 hours to eat here! It’s our favorite Italian restaurant. The fresh pasta is amazing and the Key Lime martini is perfect! Shawn, our server this last time, was beyond caring, attentive and helpful with selections. We will continue making a point to go to Columbus just so we can dine here!

The location is good snd service is friendly. I first dined years ago in the 90s when Trattoria was on the north side of town. It was worth the drive, and I still remember his great it was. The food the past few times I’ve visited was good, but not remarkable. The staff is great and they seem to have a loyal customer base.

We have dined at Trattoria Roma many times and have always enjoyed the experience. But this visit, which was our first indoor dining sice Covid hit, was a notable exception. As usual, the service was great. I don’t know if there is a new chef or the old one was just having an off night. But the food was bad across the board. Ceasar salad, which is usual excellent, seemed different and was not crisp. Bolognese sauce on pasta was virtually flavorless and had way too much garlic and thyme. They offered a complementary dessert after I commented on those things and even the dessert was bad. I have had too many good meals at TR to give up on it. I just hope this was a one time failure.

I visited there 05-27-2021 from Atlanta and I just want to say that I had the most wonderful experience. My server Kenzie was amazing, good spirit, nice and attentive. Food was fresh and amazing and also the other servers and hostess were great as well. I love the fact that they were there to make sure that I had a good experience and coming from a person that has been in the service industry for 18 years speaks volume. Thanks staff for allowing me to have a great experience while visiting Columbus I really appreciate that❤️❤️🤗

This was our first dining experience at TR and we will definitely be back. Our Caesar and Pickled Beet salads were fresh and delicious. Our dinners were excellent as well. I went simple with Angel hair with marinara. My husband got the Chicken Gorgonzola pasta. The service was excellent.

Very good selection/variety on menu and service. Prices were high. Appetizers were a bit lien. Don’t know what it was, but the ambiance leaned toward the common instead of the “wow.”

Great family own price that has great food and a tasteful wine selection for good value especially in comparison to other Grandview restaurants. Highly recommend their chicken piccata or veal Parmesan. We plan on making this restaurant a regular stop!!

This was our first time out since having our daughter and we were blown away by the level of service, quality of food and all around atmosphere. Classy little hidden gem in Grandview that will definitely get repeat business from us!

We sent our daughter and son for their birthdays, so we didn't experience it ourselves. But this rating is based on the way that they talked about their experience. It was a very busy night, but they enjoyed the restaurant very much.

Dried out overcooked food that took entirely too long to come out of the kitchen served in a loud drunk profanity laced atmosphere

Hello Again Mr. Keohane. We have apologized on Google and Facebook. here is your Open Table apology. As we said in the other responses, this is not the norm and we wish you had given us an opportunity to fix this while you were here. In reference to the intoxicated guest, they were asked to leave and the normal elegant atmosphere returned to normal upon their exit. Again, we are sorry this disrupted your evening. As mentioned in the other responses, we guarantee a much better experience.

We visited on Valentine's Day for thr special 3 course dinner. Service was efficient and our waitress was very nice. We had the opening salad. The dressing was very good. We had the filet and chicken for the main course and enjoyed both
My SO cleaned his plate! Dessert was tiramisu and creme brule. Both were heavenly! We will be back to try more dishes.

Overall was a very nice night for me and my wife. There claim to fame should be the service of the staff as soon as you walk in the door. The only negative thing we could say is because of the size of the dinning area hearing other couples conversation was a little distracting.
