I had a reservation for 7:15 and was only seated at 7:40.
Loved our server tonight! She was very attentive and helpful!
Great experience as always!
I took my wife here for her birthday. We were seated in the enclosed outside patio area next to two tables of eight people. We would’ve preferred to be seated in the main dining area so that we could’ve enjoyed a more intimate meal. Since we shared the server for the two table with large parties our service was slightly hindered. But understandable give the conditions.
Portions are large but they are commensurate with the prices. Quick turn in tables but the place empties out by 8pm. It’s an early dinner crowd. Atmosphere is upscale, service is good, food is good. This is not high end Italian but it is good for everyday dining when you like large portions and fauxtalian dishes like the usual chicken/veal parm.
Have visited this restaurant several times never disappointed.
Our weekly date night.
Excellent service, very nice atmosphere, great food (BTW, my risotto is better!lol).
Will definitely recommend and come again!
Have dined here multiple times with the same result. Outstanding!!!
I would recommend it, but it has become very loud over the years...
Can’t beat this place in any category! Aside from the great staff, ambiance, and menu ... the FOOD is incredibly delicious!
This restaurant was recommended by friends and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was great as was our waiter Anthony.
Always incredible! Great seafood, Italian, bread, etc. Our favorite restaurant in North Smithfield & possibly RI!
Beautiful food, great ambiance and never disappoints!
I had a business lunch here earlier this week and the service and food were great. When we arrived, our table was ready per the reservation and we sat in a quiet corner so our discussions were private. The server, Jill did a very nice job. The cheeseburger was tasty and the fries were crispy like I like them. My guest had the chicken special and he enjoyed it as well. No room for coffee or dessert but an excellent lunch.
My boyfriend and I had an amazing date night. The service was great and the food was amazing. I have been dining here for years and they always exceed my expectations. I continuously recommend Trattoria Romana for any occasion.
Busy place, worth the wait. Make a reservation. Sat in a reasonable amount of time, excellent waiter. Food as good as North End and Italy. Well worth it. Good portions.
Server was very courteous, friendly and attentive. Food and drinks were excellent! Received food quick and was piping hot!! Overall, very pleased and would go back.
I made a reservation for 7:00 and had to wait 30 min to be seated. This was the third time it happened.
The food was just ok. I have had better on different nights
Our usual Romana is the Wakefield location but having now been for a second visit to the Lincoln location we can say both are consistently excellent in all ways. A very enjoyable dining experience & well recommended.
Always enjoy the meal! It was a special date night
Overall the experience was pleasant and the food was very good
The prices are high relative to the area, but the food is well worth it and the service was without equal. Our server was very personable and attentive. My dish was delicious and my wife couldn't rave enough about hers. We'll definitely be back.
Great evening out with family good meal
Our waiter ?Mark? was excellent, attentive, knowledgeable and did his job extremely well. Food was excellent. This was not our first visit and it will not be our last!
Overall it was good, but just good, not outstanding and for the price of a restaurant in Providence, it should mirror the experience in my opinion.
Excellent all around. The best chicken parmigiana I have ever had Service was outstanding
My daughter and I have been going there for quite some time. And I go with friends. I’ve never been disappointed. Love everything about the restaurant. My absolute favorite restaurant.
Great food, great restaurant, worst service I've ever had there. Drinks took forever, waters remained empty throughout the meal, they couldn't even bring parmesan cheese to the table when asked. Had to ask three times for the wine menu too. Once the check was dropped she was too busy talking at the register to come get it. I eventually had to get up and walk it over to her. I bet shes sitting wondering why she was tipped under 20% now too, maybe pay more attention to a party of 7 next time.
Recommended with some reservation due to several factors - fruit flies, very dim lighting that made it difficult to read the menu and a waiter who came back several times to my party and others around us to ask about our orders and proceeded to put clean utensils for our entrees on the table without clearing off the dishes or utensils from our appetizers. Thankfully, the appetizers and entrees that included stuffed mushroom caps, calamari, salmon, two veal dishes, and a pork chop special were delicious.
This experience was not in keeping with previous visits to this establishment or the one in South County, so we will chalk it up to the establishment just having an off night.
Wait staff was wonderful!
Very professional and attentive
Food is always really good! Tonight was no exception. Service was a little harried, but he got himself together once tables started clearing out.
BUT THE WAIT!!! Ridiculous!! Why do they have a reservation system when you have to wait 37 minutes (we timed it) after our reservation to be seated? Hostess said there was a computer issue. Unfortunately, this is our third attempt all with reservations and we had to wait just as long each time.
Always good here. Can’t go wrong
I had lunch here on Thursday this week and everything was excellent. The lunch selections are nice and always tasty. The server was new but did a great job. I had limited time and they made sure my Chicken Pesto sandwich was served quickly. As always the food was fresh and as ordered.
Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Food was delicious. Desserts were wonderful. We come here for special occasions. A step up from regular restaurants without being stuffy.
We always enjoy dining at Trattoria Romana in Lincoln. We also enjoy their other restaurants in RI and MA. We have always have wonderful experiences. Will continue to recommend!
As always at any of the Trattoria Romana locations a great meal and good service.
Overall, our dining experience was fine. While the food and service was good, it was much too noisy for our liking. Additionally, even though we had reservations, we were initially given a table next to the kitchen, with all the kitchen smells, etc. We requested another table and were told it would be another 15 minute wait even though there were plenty of open tables.
I have to say that we'll be visiting their Narragansett location in the future!
I love this place but I was disappointed by the size of the shrimp for shrimp cocktail and I would have liked more of a snap to the shrimp. We have had better there. My martini was not a full glass. Much prefer at the bar then a table but that was our choice. Bread is by far the best I have ever had. Everyone very pleasant and food comes out hot. Bigger shrimp & full martini.
This place is always solid
One of the best Sunday lunch "specials" offered and enjoyed.
