    Another great dinner here. Server was a young gentleman who I think has a tremendous work ethic and personality and should shine in this business. He really seemed to care about the job. Food was amazing as well

    Very pricy for lunch but very delicious. I wish they had a less expensive lunch menu. I took a friend for a post-Christmas treat. It was as always delicious... a nice quiet place to eat, talk and laugh.

    We went on Sunday afternoon Ordered chicken Marcella, scrod, Sunday gravy and meatballs and spaghetti. Also soup. Soup was excellent and flavorful . Garden salads were fresh and like the dressing. We were not pleased with chicken Marsala - chicken was plentiful and well prepared but the Marsala sauce was just ok. Have had scrod Florentine several times and one of the reasons we go there on Sunday. Scrod portion was small and not particularly fresh. Love mashed potatoes

    Overall experience was good although our waiter forgot to place a portion of our order and the food runner forgot to bring out our dessert……which the manager compt’d to go. Food was good and maybe just an off night. We would try again another time.

    TR never disappoints. We have dined there on several occasions. Last night there were 9 specials available. Our server was outstanding. The manager stops bye to ensure everything is okay. This is one of my favorites for sure. Always good.

    Absolutely loved the food and ambiance. Our sever was fantastic but they make the servers recite the entire specials list, you sit there awkwardly for literally 5 minutes while they recite 10 menu items.. I would much rather have a print out and read it myself.

    Excellent service and delicious food with lots of great options. We felt very well taken care of. It is a large open space which has pluses and minuses - you can hear everything at the next table and there is no visual barrier either. We happened to be next to a very loud talker but that is a personal issue, not the restaurant's fault. We'll be back!!

    Once again a difficult experience at Trattoria Romana. New waiter, slow service of no service. My meal was messed up and I had to bring the issue to the managers attention. Asparagus was the size of a tree trunk. He told us that’s the size they get. They need to find a new supplier if find a different vegetable. I don’t know that we’ll be going back here anytime soon. It’s a shame as we live so close to this restaurant.

    Service from I believe it was Kendrick was exceptional, professional, but personable with a sense of humor. Pleasenat staff. Appetizers a little on the high side but good. Steaks were excellent with adequate amount of tasty sides. $188 for 2 people plus tip.

Another amazing meal and we had the same awesome server!!! Travis is a MUST! He is so passionate about food and drinks. So helpful, knowledgeable and very attentive. The manager is also always making rounds to make sure everything is good and very personable. Another great dinner!

    Our wait staffer Braydon/Brayton was very courteous & very professional. He accommodated all of our requests very efficiently. Although this was our first Sunday morning experience, it will not be our last. The entree selections were very appalling & very attractive to return another Sunday morning. This is definitely a keeper and a return to restaurant. Thanks Braydon!
