We had a wonderful time at Trattoria-Romana. Food was excellent!! The restaurant is beautiful! The service was a bit slow but we understood as a large party was there. The waitress was gracious with us and overall was excellent. We will definitely return!

I would recommend Trattoria Romana to a friend because the food and service on a busy Saturday night was still exceptional. Someone was walking around asking patrons how everything was, ensuring customer satisfaction. My husband and I ordered the Lobster ravioli appetizer and it was amazing! Our meals, Veal parmigiana and Chicken special was also amazing. The food and service was just as good as it was a slow Tuesday afternoon. Make a reservation online and head over!!

The brand of Moscoto wine was terrible, very disappointing. I expected a high quality selection from this resturant.

Good food and value. Server was very good, but the guy who delivered the food just threw it on the table. The noise level was terrible. A very loud party in a small dining room was obnoxious.

Great experience overall ... the one downside was how long it took to get our drinks. At one point I walked over to the bar to see if they were slammed or something .... there were no customers at the bar!! Small gripe ... I would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks

Trattoria Romana in Johnston ( formerly called Osteria Toscana) is an absolute favorite of my husband and mine. Consistently delicious cocktails and food. He loves the short rib ravioli. I love the veal dishes. We both love the calamari and eggplant appetizers. A true neighborhood gem!

Cosmo was delicious. Food was good and very good value for the sizes! Wish the calamari was smaller instead of onion ring sizes, they could have done a little more with it like a lemon butter sauce and made the size of the hot pepper smaller. Only the name has changed, it’s still very pretty inside with that beautiful lit up tree. Would def go again and just hope we dont get that same server. As an aside, the water that they pour did not taste good— is that what Johnston water tastes like? Ugh. Server was very slow, didn’t seem to be in any hurry after our drinks.

Our experience was just okay. Food was good, but it is definitely not a family friendly restaurant, which is very disappointing for an Italian restaurant in Johnston. We won’t be back unless we get a rare date night alone.

Service was very good. Food was good but not outstanding. A mistake was made on my credit card, which I was told would be reversed in 24 hrs. Going on 72 hrs and still not reversed which means that I'll probably have to deal with credit card company. Disappointing!

Good food, good service, to begin with..
Lunch selection could be expanded, maybe a few new pasta dishes, and garden salads. Very elegant and pleasant dining area, light distribution is very uniform and not too bright.

The restaurant Is was very accomodating when on of our dishes the shrimp was not
cooked and they brought It back and brought out a new dish, we thought that was very
professional. We enjoyed the beautiful decorations and looks of the dining room we would
definetly come again. The prices were good and overall we loved It.

Overall it was a pleasant experience. The appetizer of zucchini flowers wasn't as good as some that I have tried before and could have been served hotter. I had a pasta dish with baked ziti that was very good, although not exactly what I expected. When the check came, I had to look twice. It was so inexpensive, I was shocked.

An outstanding experience. The food was delicious and was able to accommodate a special request for one of the diners in our party. Our drinks arrived quickly, water was filled without requesting. The candles on the dessert for the two birthday gals in our party made the meal special and memorable.

Arrived @6:15 for our reservation. With only two wait staff covering the whole restaurant we felt rushed in every way.
We had visited the prior incarnation a month ago and this visit to Trattoria was a let down.
