Trattoria Roma first opened it's doors on Morse Road in 1990. 10 years later, the "Italian Gem" moved to it's current location on Grandview Avenue. A tandem team that's been together for more than 15 years, owners GM Shawn and Chef Matt combine their efforts to provide a wonderful dining experience with exemplary service. Our mission is to provide an amazing Italian meal using only the best ingredients available, using local sources through the course of each season, served by a professional, knowledgeable, and friendly staff, in a cozy and romantic atmosphere.
Consistently recognized by Zagat and Wine Spectator as one of the best in the country, Trattoria Roma is your home away from Italy.

What a great dinner we had. This is one of the first times we have dined out since COVID. We felt very comfortable with their protocols. The food and service were amazing!

Always great food and presentation.

My negative was I ordered scallops cooked 'well done' and they were....but the outside was a bit charred and overwhelmed the taste.

Always wonderful! One of our very favorite restaurants. Dined outside on the patio for our wedding anniversary, and everything was just right! Shared a Caesar salad, which they split in the kitchen, with anchovies on only my half. Typically, we order build your own pasta, with lots of great choices, but this time, my wife had the Chicken Piccata, a very large portion, especially for her, and I had one of the off-the-menu specials available last evening. The Osso Buco dish was wonderful! Together with a very nice Red wine from Southern Italy, the evening was perfect! Our thanks to the chef and staff!

They have changed the complimentary bread there since our last visit, and it’s MUCH better now. Our service was spot on without the slightest bit of hovering. We had a 5:30 socially distant table outside and had a great experience with. We have been going here for years from Westerville and will be back again for sure.

Made a reservation asked for outside table. When we arrived, 15 minutes early for our 6 pm reservation there was an empty table outside. We were told that we had to indicate somewhere on the reservation to "reserve" and outside table, we had merely "requested" one. We agreed to sit at the table understanding that it was reserved at 7 pm. The waitress asked us 5 times in 15 minutes if we wanted to order. We had finished one glass of wine and an appetizer at 6:10 she told us, well within earshot of others seated outside, " I know you were told by the host that you had to leave by 7. If you don't order soon the kitchen will be backed up." Extremely rude. We obviously asked for the check and left. We did not leave a tip due to the attitude of the server. The appetizer was wonderful and so was the wine. This was our first time at Trattoria Roma. We decided to try something new. Unfortunate experience. We traveled down the street to our usual spot, had a lovely dinner outside and left a very generous tip.

Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate you taking the time. With the covid-19 protocols we are trying to utilize every table. It is extra important that we are efficient with scheduling reservations. Your reservation was for an indoor table and the outside table we gave you was reserved for 7:00, we were trying to be accommodating while also staying on schedule for the next reservation. We are sorry this affected your evening. Hopefully you'll try us again during normal business.
