The food was accepttional and the waitress was outstanding. She new when to bring the food and the right questions to ask.. She was there when you needed her and not when you didn't. I loved the specials (although a little pricey for South County). I wish you had a couple of less exspensive entrees for the residents of South County in the winer time. It was my birtday and a gift from my son.

Thank You

Delicious food and stellar service. Our server made a great experience even better with his personality and prompt attention. He was busy but made us feel like we were the only table in the restaurant.

We had made reservations and did not havrle to wait at all. We arrived a couple minites early and were promptly seated. Waitress and bussers were very attentive and the food was phenominal. I had a Scarborough Beach Martini and i highly recommend that as it pairs nicely with the food.

Well, we wanted to try this one out as we have been to Trattoria in Lincoln before. Unfortunately it was no where near what we expected. My wife's veal francaise was pink and not cooked! The waiter came over and said he would let manager know and aske if she would like something else? She ordered snail salad. We never saw a manager come over to ask or apologize about the meal. When bill arrived they did take off meal but charged her for snail salad. I was surprised considering their food issue. Most places would offer something. We tried this restaurant and we won't be going back.

Chose this restaurant because I have been here before and never been disappointed. They take RESERVATIONS, where other upscale restaurants in the area do not. The service, ambiance and food are excellent. Cozy indoor table settings, bar seating and a climate controlled outdoor patio. Noise level is moderate so you can definitely carry on a conversation with your table mates. Definitely recommend this awesome restaurant

This restaurant never disappoints! My spouse and I dined with our adult daughter and had a great experience. We scored a nice table in the front alcove. I ordered the duck breast special over Parmesan risotto; the others enjoyed the vegetarian eggplant...delicious all around.

Trattoria Romania is very good at delivering Italian cooking, It reminds me of my friend's grandmother's cooking. I typically order veal frances, but I ordered the veal parmasean at the suggestion of our waitresses . There were two taking care of our table and they were seamless in delivery. The veal was excelllent paired with a authentic symp sans marzano sauce. Go hungry the portions are generous. The loaf of bread was scrumptrious--fresh out of the oven and deliciously crusty which demonstrates La Trattoria pays attention to details.

We love this restaurant! Terrific food and wonderful waitstaff.

The only problem is seating. The tables for two are too close together - so no conversation is private and even the waitstaff have trouble negotiating the space. :) If you are the manager/owner of TR and see this comment - go in and look closely at the tables for two. You should drop one table from the restaurant side against the far back wall.

That said, I would strongly recommend this restaurant - the food is outstanding!
