Trattoria Roma Ratings and Reviews
Easily one of my favorite restaurants in and around Columbus. Authentic hand made Italian cuisine with delicately balanced flavors all in a calm and simple setting. If you want exceptional food without a bunch of bright lights, hype and pretense then give Trattoria Roma a try. Shawn and Chef Matt will take great care of anyone who comes through the door
We had a party of 13, and it seemed to be a busy Saturday evening. We have been here before and liked being able to talk to one another during our dinner. Service was a little on the slow side, but we never felt rushed to leave. The desserts where very good, and a good thing to share if you're looking for something sweet.
I was in on Saturday, January 20th for a 7:00 reservation. We were seated upon arrival. However, it was approximately 15 minutes before our actual server made an appearance. Our server completed taking our drink orders, at which point another member of my party asked for bread. Our drinks were brought out one at a time (three waters, a wine, and an iced tea). Bread came another ten minutes after beverages.
We finally had a chance to hear specials, then order another ten minutes later.
The portion sizes are outrageously small. If I am paying $24 "for shrimp", it should be noted that you receive only three shrimp. This is not a serving. This is an appetizer sized portion. Not only what the size ridiculous, but it was incredibly salty. I asked for no salt and it had gritty sea salt on it.
Another guest in my party ordered a wedge salad. The portions here are laughable. His salad was literally smaller than half of a small lemon.
If your portions are that small WITH a high price tag, we better be getting gold with said food.
I am extremely disappointed by Trattoria Roma. I would never recommend this restaurant, unless someone enjoys paying too much for small portioned, over salted food.
Lovely traditional Italian restaurant. My husband asked for his favorite choppino which wasn’t on the menu this time but they graciously made it for him. We also shared a special that was a salad. Delicious. Everything always is and is obviously made with care.
The owner seated us and helped my mom to,the table. We started with the aramcini as always a delish beginning. I also always order the seasonal cocktail. It has been a different Mosow Mule and it did not disappoint. Had,the lamb special with mashed potatoes and carrots. The flavors were great, had to send the lamb back as my idea of medium rare is different from the chef. #babababaaaa
Love the atmosphere
A cozy neighborhood venue with big city food and service. Co-owned by Chef Matt and GM Shawn. One or both generally on site. Shawn is very helpful providing great front of house service and Chef turning out well crafted interesting modern as well as traditional dishes. The kitchen is very accommodating preparing each dish from scratch to order. Thus they are happy to modify dishes from the menu to your personal taste.
