Trattoria Romana South was opened by award winning Chef Luciano Canova to offer residents and visitors of southern Rhode Island with the authentic Italian cuisine that the Trattoria Romana name has become synonymous with after the success of the Trattoria Romana restaurant in Lincoln. The team selected the location in South County Commons in Wakefield to offer convenient access to all of Southern RI.

Today, our Italian restaurant in Wakefield RI offers a lively bar scene, where regulars and guests can enjoy cocktails, liquor, beer, and wine from our extensive drink menu while also enjoying our full food selection. Our bar and restaurant are open year round for dinner and drinks.

Great service from our waitress Shelby. I ordered the 12 oz pork chop which turned out to be 2 large chops...enough for 2 meals. My daughter had the 14 oz sirloin steak which was perfectly cooked.

Tables were TOO close. Acoustics were poor. The woman at the next table was about 18 inches away from me. I could hear her better than I could my wife. Lighting was WAY too dim. My wife needed a flashlight to read the menu. The food was very good, but I'm not heading there again. Obviously, my wife and I are a minority of two inasmuch as the place was quite full. Just as obvious is that a whole lot of South Countyites don't mind being squeezed into a small dining space where they can't read the menu and can't hear their date unless they practically shout at each other.

My husband and I have recently moved to South Kingstown and have been in search for good
Italian cuisine. Trattoria's food and service far surpassed our expectations. The meal was
fresh, hot, plentiful and delicious. Highly recommend and we can not wait to go back again.

Made reservations and table was in bar area Did not want to sit there The Red Snapper special was not good. Sat the whole time with my coat on. To much A/C cold. Asked three times to turn up a little and did not happen. Very noisy The three Veal dishes were very good. Wish we had a table in the dining room

We like to meet friends here. It can be a little noisy. They always honor my seating/table preference. Very nice pasta menu, always great specials with fish meat and veg. They are amenable to substitution. Bar scene comfortable and friendly, always meet people that we know. Happy place, elegant dining room.

Trattoria Romano South was a wonderful experience.. It is a great place to enjoy an intimate dinner or a get together with family & friends. Our server was excellent. She was helpful, friendly, & did not rush us. Our dinners were delicious. We definitely will be back to enjoy this gem of a restaurant!

We enjoyed our wonderful birthday meal as usual. We are veterans of this restaurant so we were not disappointed with our food and the atmosphere. Our waitress was efficient but lacked the “warm and fuzzy” feeling we would have enjoyed. Although it did not affect our dining, it did not add to the pleasure either.

Price value is off on a few of the items, especially the Caesar salad. The portion is VERY small. While it is not $10.00, I would rather pay more a get real size salad.

Lively atmosphere, Caesar salad was good but entrees were so so. I had veal piccata and the veal was limp with sauce that had very little flavor. My wife had the veal francaise, also bland tasting although the veal was not as limp as mine.

The waitress was slow and repeatedly forgot to bring things to our table (freshly grated cheese for our meals was brought too late to even use) and getting another glass of wine took forever.

This is becoming our go-to place for birthdays and anniversaries for just the two of us as the food is excellent and can be tailored to our taste and needs (for example, since I am gluten sensitive, they will put my shrimp and scallops over a bed of arugula if I ask although gluten free pasta is available). For long time Rhode Islanders, the Twin Oaks waiters were famous for taking complex orders and not writing them down but getting the correct plate to each individual, this is another such place. Staff is consistent and some have been with the establishment since it opened. I have never had a less than wonderful meal here.

When we first arrived we were put in the farthest corner of the restaurant and it took at least 15 minutes before anyone came to our table, even for water. Then when the water finally came it was still another 5-8 minutes before we saw a waiter, he seemed to be frazzled and was sweating, not really sure what his issue was. When we finally ordered and got our dinner, it was just okay, portion size small and felt pricing was high. Won't be going back to that restaurant anytime soon, to many great restaurants in Rhode Island.
