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

I loved the halibut special. I will have to go back and grab some more. I love our service as our waitresses were phenomenal.

My wife and I went to Trattoria Roma for Valentines Day. They had a special 3 course dinner menu that included a bottle of wine and everything was excellent! We'll definitely be coming back!

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.

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.

Great food. Hardly nobody was in the restaurant except us (it was Super Bowl Sunday), which allowed us to have some nice time together. Server was super sweet and even took a picture of us when we asked! 10/10

Very disappointing. Seated near the door, no storm door so constant cold air (it's winter, folks). Food was not what we ordered, and sub par for the $$, and our server argued that yes it was?! Mask or no mask, I know my pastas! Certainly will NOT give them a second chance.

Hello DRod, We are sorry you were not satisfied with your experience. Covid has been tough on the restaurant industry and we are no exception. We are trying to maximize seating while maintaining the proper spacing and your table was a result of that, during severe cold weather (3 wks/year) the table can be cold. Again we apologize that is where you ended up the night of your visit. The fettuccine is homemade and is slightly thicker than boxed pasta we are always happy to substitute.

We had a wonderful dinner. Staff was wonderful and speedy. Only issue was that the chicken in my chicken Parmesan was tough to eat and pasta was stuck together. All other food was fantastic.

I ordered ciopinno, which I typically love. It was not traditional and was packed with mushrooms which I don't eat. There was also very little broth. The descriptor in the menu should be more specific since it is not traditional for this type of entree.

We had reservations and was seated right away. Everything we had was fresh and delicious! Only down side was no kid options on there menu. We didn’t have to wait very long for our food, which is great when your hungry. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. Would definitely come back. Great authentic Italian food!

I had dinner at Trattoria Roma last night with a friend of mine. A coworker suggested that we try the place out, only it was not the restaurant he had meant to suggest. Anyway I’m glad that he got it wrong because we had such a great time at dinner. The restaurant is located in Grandview, everything was nice and clean. Our host was super friendly, we were seated immediately with plenty of space to follow social distancing guidelines. The lady who took our order was very helpful in helping us decide what to to order and pronunciations. The food was absolutely amazing, everything came out quickly, hot and looked and tasted delicious. I will definitely be returning!

The food and service were fantastic! We had seven people in our party and everyone enjoyed their food. I don't think anyone's water glass was every empty. The prices were good. The atmosphere was perfect - quiet and intimate. I would highly recommend! I only wished we lived in the area because we would eat there often.
