We were dining on Father’s Day 2021. Service and food was outstanding. As requested we were seated at a table in the Garden Room. It was so noisy! On a holiday I would not request a table in the Garden Room again. This is not a complaint simply a comment.

John was our waiter -- always so impressed by memory of specials! This our first visit since the plague ... we had our 50th wedding anniversary here 4 years ago ... used to live nearby, but traveled for this get together with distant family. AT LAST, and the BEST.

Met an old friend for dinner. We were put in the back near the kitchen which I was afraid might be loud. I don’t know how the did it but we had no issues with the kitchen sound. The waiter was great and the food was out of this world!

We’ve been out to a few of our favorite restaurants since the pandemic is ending and we have been vaccinated. Tutorial was the first to provide excellent service. Many of the other restaurants are way under staff and service is very slow not to the fault of the wheat stuff. Food is always was excellent! As well as the service!

The service and food were not what we hoped they would be. The waiter was a lot nicer to all the other clientele but us and the veal was tuff. Expected a lot more from a Luciano owned restaurant.

We chose Trattoria for a nice quiet meal to celebrate our anniversary and the only thing we got was a party of 5 women speaking very loudly competing with one another to be heard. The waiter did apologize for that party when it came time to pay but never made a mention it during our stay. The amount of money you pay for a romantic meal at a place like Trattoria is very disappointing when all you get is a bar like atmosphere. We will never go back

We had a new waiter in training, which was fine. But the person doing the training really shouldn't stand next to him at the end asking people to tell her how he did. That was awkward and put us on the spot. What do you think someone's answer will be? The trainer kept coming over and asking how our food was before we even had a chance to try it. I found the service to be uncomfortable and awkward, and not because of the new guy. Also, my credit card was charged $10 more than the total I wrote in. I just find that annoying, since the total I wrote included over 20% on the total bill, including alcohol and tax. Not impressed.

Such an enjoyable dinner. The staff was welcoming as soon as we walked in the door. The service along with the attention from our waiter, John, was fantastic. Everything from the sangria to the appetizer then on to the main course could not have been better. Thank you for a great dinner to celebrate my birthday.

The service was fantastic. Brought my in-laws here while they were visting. The only complaint we had was the shrimp scampi was extremely garlicy. Other than that, the food service, drinks and ambiance was exquisite.

Love coming there! The service was good the three times I’ve been. And the food is definitely worth it. Boyfriend ordered sausage with his meal however definitely being an Italian restaurant would rather have whole sausages not one served cut up.

Our group of six guys went there to enjoy the evening (we get together a few time every year). The service was great! Very attentive but not hovering, allowing us to have great conversations!

The adult beverages were mixed very well and they have a great selection of upscale spirits!

The dinners were very good and the specials were exceptional (according to the folks that ate them)! Desert specials were all really good and one of our group said that "when the strawberry dessert in on the menu, I come in and make sure I order it". This is also one of the few restaurants in RI that serves real (not wrapped in plastic) Biscotti! It was really good!

We had an awesome evening! We all recommend Trattoria Romano!

We celebrated Mother's Day with a lovely meal. We had reservations and did not have to wait for our table. The service was attentive, and we enjoyed the bread with seasoned oil, the wine and desserts. My husband ordered the Frutti di Mare, I had the Scallops and Shrimp Pasta, and my daughter had the Osso Bucco. special. Everyone was happy with their choices which were perfectly cooked. This is a nice place for a date night, or a special occasion. Be prepared to drop quite a bit of cash for an entre, wine/drinks and dessert.

My husband had the veal parmigiana and I had the chicken francese and both were phenomenal. We also had our picky eaters with us and the waiter was very helpful in getting their orders just right for them. Everything was fantastic! Highly recommend & we will definitely be going back.
