We were seated on time for our reservation for 5 family members. The waiter was great, I forgot his name and the bus person was incredible. I don't know her name. The food was delicious, great portions for great prices. The bread was a hit. The menu has everything one could ask for and three of the five had the same thing, go figure.

Have been at this restaurant many times and the past few times have been a little disappointing. Asked for anchovies on Caesar salad and a pickled type of small fish was used which was a surprise to the palate and, in my opinion, didn’t pair well with the dressing.
Also, prices have risen, which is understandable, but$24 for a little cheese and meat board is somewhat expensive for the amount of food served.

Unfortunately, this was a very disappointing experience. We've been going to TR for quite a few years, and considered it a go-to place for an exceptional dining experience, but last night it truly disappointed. We ordered items we've had there several times before, and in the past, these dishes were excellent and delicious. Last night, all of the food items disappointed. The calamari, which is a dish we order often in many restaurants, were very poorly prepared. Not only was the dish overwhelmed with peppers and not very tasty, but the breading was not crispy - it was kind of soggy and falling off the rings. We also had a pasta dish and a veal dish. The sauce on the pasta was actually bad tasting and only saved by a generous addition of cheese and hot pepper flakes, and the veal was just passable - far from delicious. Our server (Jessica) was fantastic, so no knock at all on the service. And the setting is always lovely at TR. I don't know, maybe they've had some turnover in the kitchen, or have expanded too fast - they have continued to grow the chain. But this was so disappointing that we may not choose to return - too bad!

It has ample parking and a friendly professional staff, a very good meal that is a bit pricey but it is well worth it. A quite enjoyable overall dining experience. We would recommend to all and plan on returning soon for the ambiance and a tasty meal.

This Italian gem is worth the trip, and you would think you will get food that rivals any North End Boston Italian restaurants. My dish was chicken with artichoke hearts and olives, over pasta. The portion could have fed three people, but I ate it all, and enjoyed every bite! Brianna was our server, and could not have been more professional or attentive!

The food is better than most of the very good Italian restaurants that Rhode Island may boast about. The pasta varieties go well beyond the linguine-ziti-gnocchi roster, and one would enjoy trying them. The decor is formal without being fussy or pretentious. The wine list extends from the uber-expensive to the affordable. Portions are substantial, but not grotesquely large.

I have wanted to try this restaurant for four years while my son attended college here.
Finally for our sons graduation we were able to try it this weekend. The atmosphere and service was very good. Overall, I would recommend the restaurant. However, I was disappointed in the Veal Marsala and cannoli. My two favorites I order everywhere. The Marsala had very few mushrooms and the sauce was the thickness of brown gravy and wasn't sweet like traditional Marsala. Also, the cannoli was very small and bland. All 3 people in my party all voiced the same opinion while eating one. In fact, I don't even think we finished them.

The Trattoria is one of our favorites that we really missed during the covid attack. The food is always delish. One of the keys is the quality of the wait staff. Last evening they seemed to be a little short staffed, like so many other restaurants. The young woman caring for us served us in an easy and friendly manner unaffected by the extra tables that were her responsibility.

It sure was great being out in a normal dining experience again. We hadn't been there in several years, but it was excellent as always. Their sauces are the best. The menu seemed to have more selections than we remembered, so if you haven't been there in a while you should try it again. Many chicken, veal, and fish dishes, with fewer steak dishes. Even with the expansive menu, they still had 4 appetizer and 4 entree specials.
