Food was blah, not worth the money, small portions. This is an all show restaurant, looks fancy, menu makes the food look fancy, but it is not!! Food doesn’t match the hype

The zucchini blossom special appetizer sounded good and was well prepared but oddly bland despite anchovies.
The short-rib ravioli was also good but too much happening. No need for sliced sausages on top; no need for so much gravy.
The waitperson was excellent.
Good drinks, too.

We love everything about Trattoria Romana always but last night the calamari was overcooked. It’s always a pleasure to be waited on by Anne-Marie.

Veal was perfectly prepared with the marsala sauce outstanding.
Always consistent.
Kirstie was an excellent server...personable and efficient.

And of course Scott, my #1 Maitre'D, was welcoming and considerate as usual.

It's a Go To place for us.

Love TR South and have enjoyed dinner here several times over the years! This last time was exactly where we wanted to be for our anniversary dinner. My wife had swordfish Francais which she declared outstanding and will have again. Her one complaint was the unappetizing squash that accompanied it. I had the Bucatini a la Amatriciana, which I had to send back to the kitchen to be drained of water. With its return I found it to be salted to the extreme and could not finish it. Hopefully, in the future I will remember to ask the wait person to hold the salt.
Dessert was Our longtime favorite, Strawberries Romana and once again it was an outstanding choice that we recommend to everyone !

The owner and our server were phenomenal on our trip to Narragansett from Long Island! Almost went elsewhere but Trattoria was in a cute little shopping center - our waitress nailed it as far as food and wine recommendations (get the chicken parm, it’s cooked crispy and one of the most delicious I’ve had as a picky Italian!). We would definitely go back!

Would have preferred not to be seated in the bar area but other than that our experience was phenomenal. Brianna took great care of us and the food was delicious. I actually expected it to be a little pricier than it was for the type of restaurant but found prices were very fair for the quality and portion sizes of the dishes. We will be back!

I made a reservation for my husband and I to celebrate my birthday recently. I have always considered this restaurant to be my favorite. Sadly, this is no longer true.
We were greeted warmly as we usually are there. The young man who waited on us was cordial and efficient. The food was as fabulous as usual. The restaurant has a nice casual yet upscale atmosphere. The prices have gone up substantially in the past couple of years. But, that was okay
considering that this was a special occasion for me.
I have been saving points on Open Table for quite a few years and decided prior to making my reservation, to use some of the points. I downloaded the points as instructed I don’t have a desk top computer and or printer where I am so I kept the email informing of the gift card on my phone. It instructs the server how to put the numbers from the card into their system to give the customer the discount. We had finished our dinner and reviewed the bill. I handed my cell phone to the waiter. He agreed that they honor Open Table Points. We were then confronted by an older woman (I am assuming that she was the hostess). She said that the responsibility for getting the discount was mine and I had to go back to Open Table to go through
some sort of process. I argued that there are clear instructions for the wait staff as to how to honor the points. I also stated that I had used some of my points during the prior week using the same method and there was no problem. She was extremely rude to me and insisted that she was correct. Finally, she viewed the screen on my phone again and said they would honor the points. But, there was no apology at all. We paid our bill with the discount and on the way out, she said “Happy Birthday” in a sarcastic tone. I could not believe I was being treated that way and especially on my birthday. We have gone to Trattoria for years and never had such a horrible experience! It is a wonderful restaurant. However, will never return!
