Trattoria Roma is always good whenever we go there. Service is great, food is excellent, and we usually get to eat outside. That makes it a winner in my opinion!

There were several giant slices of raw garlic in the risotto of the seafood special, like half a garlic clove sized slices, and it tasted off. The fish was over cooked on one side and under cooked on the other, and needed seasoned more.

Ambiance was just ok but we did enjoy the outdoor seating. Our server was very good. She suggested a bottle of Prosecco that wasn’t on menu and it was a good value. She also brought a birthday dessert to us. Food was very good and was no nonsense Italian!!!

My veal parmigiana was excellent with marinara sauce on pasta. However my wife had eggplant parmigiana and it was not as good. The eggplant was not fried enough and was a bit mushy. Overall food was very good

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❤️❤️🤗
