This is one of my favorite restaurants in south Florida. The service, from the moment I dropped off my car at the valet, Was exceptional. The food is wonderful; every dish exceptional. I drove 60 miles - from Coral Gables - to meet my son there for his birthday. It was, as always, and exceptional experience.

Arrived for our reservation time. Party of four. Others who arrived after us that were a party of four were seated before us. They cater to their usuals. They sat us at the worst table. By the entrance to the kitchen. Every order that came out I was hit or bumped into the back of my chair. When we left I mentioned that they make the table we sat at for two the hostess was indifferent and said we will continue to use it as a four. The food remains superb and our waiter was very good.

I have been doing at TR for over 20 years. The food and service were amazing as usual. However, I must share that the rude, arrogant and unprofessional behavior and attitude of the elderly woman at the front desk has reached a new low and is totally unacceptable for such a fantastic restaurant. Let alone have I and my family been long, long time patrons, in addition, my last name is very recognizable, this woman could not have been more rude to my girlfriend and myself while waiting over thirty minutes for my reservation. I will not go into details regarding her behavior but suffice it to say that the other night may have been my last experience at TR 😢

This was my boyfriend’s first visit to Trattoria Romana. He was very impressed by the level of service we received from the valet to the servers. The food portions are very large and we were full before our entrees arrived. We had the calamari and the crab cake for appetizers and enjoyed both. For dinner, I ordered the Frutti Di Mare and he had the Yellowtail Oregonato and both were excellent. I only took a few bites because I wanted to save room for dessert. We shared a tiramisu and it was also very delicious. My boyfriend could not stop raving about the restaurant and our experience there. Plus, I had enough leftover from my dinner to share with him the next night, lol. We would recommend them highly to everyone.

Overpriced. Spotty service and poor recommendations on food and wine from the frequently MIA and inattentive waiter. Even when speaking (rite) to me, his gaze and attention were diverted elsewhere.

We had a 9pm reservation and were not seated until 9:45pm. I understand that this happens, but this is the third time that it has happened at Trattoria Romana (and I am not talking a 5-15 min delay). I told the hostess that this was not the first time that they took this long to seat us (even though we had reservations), but she truly did not seem to care. The restaurant's food was good, but it was also VERY loud. We had to speak loudly to have a conversation at our table. Because of all this, we will NOT be returning here. Definitely would not recommend.

We sat outside on a beautiful night . Our waiter was a little preoccupied with someone he knew so we were left wanting a bit. He recommended the osso bucco as the best anywhere and it was so tough as to be almost inedible. I would have have returned it immediately but he was not available to complain to. My wife’s snapper was excellent as was our appetizers. Just was disappointed with lack of service and my meal

Excellent good and great service in a packed setting. Bread basket is excellent as well as the tomatoes that come with! We started with clams oreganata, a personal favorite. Entrees were specials, jumbo shrimp wrapped in prosciutto with cheese and the signature langostinas. Both delicious! A small plate of biscotti was a perfect ending. The only complaint are the prices, which are very high.
