Trattoria Romana In Lincoln Ratings and Reviews
I went there on a Saturday night to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We had reservations for a group of 6 people @ 7pm. We got there a few minutes early because we knew it would be busy due to the weekend crowd, but still had to wait at least 30 - 35 mins after our reservation to be seated. That was very inconvenient for us as we had plans afterwards that we ended up being late for. Our table was also in the corner of the outside seating area which was extremely dark. We could barely see our menus and had to use our phone lights to read it. The manager (I believe was so anyway) offered us a calamari appetizer on the house as she could tell we were all annoyed. I had also asked for a piece of tiramisu to be brought out at the end of dinner for the birthday boy during my reservation confirmation call that was never brought out.
I was a little disappointed in my dining experience of my most recent visit as that is not the service I usually receive. It was two of our guest's first time there and they were not pleased. I usually go to Trattoria 3-4X a year and have nothing but great experiences each time, so I just wanted to let you know about this recent visit. Our waiter, food & drinks were all excellent though and I will continue going here, but hope I do not have an experience like this again.
Last year’s NYE dinner was better than this year’s. I thought the portions were smaller (my husband got ONE very small chunk of lobster in his veal Ragosta) ( my veal parm with a small portion of pasta had a sauce with a fishy taste to me); and the cost of the specials were obscenely overpriced, holiday or not! Our dinner courses were a bit rushed and the wait person was too quick to swipe dishes away while the other diner was still eating yet forgot to circle back with requested items like a fork. Atmosphere is always pleasing at TR, especially for a big celebration 🎉 , yet I did see other diners using the flashlights on their phones to read their menus! I’d say in conclusion that my appetizer and husband’s wedge salad were the best parts of our meals. It pains me to write a mediocre review as all my prior experiences and thus our previous reviews were 5 stars across the board. I can’t understand why such an important occasion was less than stellar. So sorry to have to say these things. ...Can’t wait to read other reviews from NYE 2017 to see if our experience was an aberration....
Waiter was excellent...food was outstanding...drink prices were very high(this is not downtown Providence). I thought $12.00 for crown royal was outrageous and $9.75 for regular drinks very high.
It was a noon time lunch with my wife and 94 year old mother. Outside of the drink prices, all was good.
My meal came with cheese when I asked for no cheese and then they brought it without cheese when I was finished with the rest of the meal and my extra vegetable I ordered also came after I was done eating. To top it off they ran out of the dessert I usually get so couldn’t have dessert.
My husband and I truly enjoyed our date night at Trattoria Romana. The specials offered on the night we dined there were amazing! We both ordered one of the special entrees and they were out of this world. Our food was also piping hot and our server Brendan was very attentive. I highly recommend Trattoria Romana for a date night or a special occasion. We loved it!
This place is the greatest! I pick this restaurant for my birthday dinner every year and it never lets us down. The food, atmosphere, and service are all top notch. Even on a busy night special requests are met with no problems. I look forward to our next dinner at Trattoria Romana.
Had to wait 20 minutes after arriving on time
Seated at Kitchen area
Called and spoke with owner abt the phone calls texts and emails I’d received to confirm
Very apologetic and appreciative
Told by desk receptionist they can seat you up to 15 minutes after arrival
Seated multiple people before us as one person said were regulars
John A was a wonderful server !
Why all the calls texts and emails when this is the treatment given to 2 females?
Front desk needs attitude adjustment
On what was our first visit, we found an expansive menu of well-prepared, well-priced traditional Italian fare made from high quality, authentic ingredients. If you like veal, they offer it in many appealing preparations which not a lot of restaurants do these days. We went for a birthday and the restaurant was packed, so it was alarming when the host could not find our Open Table reservation. Fortunately, I pulled the confirmation up on my phone and we were seated. But I later got an email from Open Table saying I had not honored my reservation! They apologized when I wrote back--but the system should be tight enough to be reliable without this kind of confusion.
We have been before a few times and have enjoyed it so much. This visit was disappointing. It was a holiday luncheon for nine people. Service was attentive by a very nice server, however food was so slow being brought out to table. Once dishes finally appeared they tasted off. My wedge salad’s dressing tasted sour. Then the entrees were a mess. Many ordered the pinchi pasta with shrimp and every one of them thought the pasta was too chewy. Pork chop entree was dry and tough. My dish had a side pasta instead of mashed and the side was so cold.
We ordered desserts that tasted delicious although they took awhile to be served again. Our table thinks they did not have a full staff in the kitchen and maybe since it’s the holidays and lots of bigger groups were there that the restaurant did not know how to manage service.
So disappointing for such a beautiful restaurant and knowing that they usually serve great meals.
