 (New England)·Dined on March 23, 2013

We have been to this restaurant on several occasions and have always had a wonderful time.. The food and service has always been great. However, this time everything it was not up to par. We were there celebrating my wife's birthday and my brother's 42nd wedding anniversary. He was from out of town and I suggested the restaurant. My brother found a rather large bone in his veal parmesan. He spoke to our waitress about it. She took the bone away without apologizing. A man, possibly the manager, came over to the table apologized and offered a new dinner. Dinner was almost over so he declined. We had dessert and coffee. The waitress brought our check and said they took a 6.95 dessert off our 200.00 bill. Poor customer service.

Every restaurant is not right for every diner. We had heard a lot about this very popular restaurant and were looking forward to our first visit. The menu is huge and we should have been alerted by the note that they have a $5 split plate charge ... and the fact they many were leaving with doggie bags. As we looked over the options it was clear that many dishes were identical except for the protein. We are not overly picky eaters but we do try and avoid fatty foods. I selected the Pollo Fiorintina, sautéed chicken breast in Marsala over pasta. When it came they had left on the skin but it was not crispy. While I could remove the soggy skin, the sauce itself was leaded with fat.

Over all this is a great place to dine. Altough on this particular night a person in our party received the wrong entree and the waiter did not do much to correct it. The guest ended up eating something he did not order and did not really enjoy himself. Saturday night is very busy, we have had better experience during the week.

While the restaurant is beautifully decorated and the food is always outstanding, table seating in the bar area is very cramped and uncomfortable. If you are seated with your back to the bar area, and the bar is crowded, chances are you will be bumped into several times. Servers have to squeeze between tables to serve, which again leads to an uncomfortable dining experience. I would definitely request alterative seating in the other room on a Friday or Saturday night. Food is fabulous!

We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and the place was packed. There was even a wait to sit at the bar. The hostess was polite and seated our party in a timely manner. The waitress arrived to our table moments later (enough time to look at the wine list.) The wine glasses were big and made a statement. I love beautiful glasses. There were many delicious choices on the menu but I am true to seafood. I had the salmon and it was a generous portion with mashed potatoes and vegetable on the side. We skipped the dessert but were not rushed out. Overall the experience as pleasurable and we will return in the near future.

A never miss restaurant. Always interesting specials in addition to their regular menu. I had Beef Brascole as an Entree and my guest had a Seafood Chippino Both off the Special Menu, and both superb. As usual, the Owner, Maitre d; and wait staff were always attentive. Can,t wait to return

This was our first time eating at Trattoria Romana. It was so good. The service was just a tad slow, but our waitress was really nice and this would not stop me from eating there again. The prices on the food were pretty decent. The drinks were expensive but where can you go and not pay a fortune for drinks. I would recommend this restaurant and can't wait to eat there again.

The one thing that stood out was the service. The waitperson was extremely knowledgeable of the specials and since I had to have a low salt diet she made sure that my salad and entree were not extra salted. If without the extra seasoning my meal was delicious.

Great as usual. Escagot appertizer was perfect, served piping hot and bubbling. A knife and fork was provided for the Entree; Veal Saltibocca; no knife was needed. Cut with my fork, Superbly tender Veal. Always a treat to dine here.

Generally I love this spot. My husband and I have been to Tratorria about 10 times over the last year. However, I may not be back because the seating was so close together. Our table was so close to the tables next to us that I was sitting closer to my dining neighbor than to my husband. Each time the waiter came over for the table next to us he had to shimmy between our 2 tables with his back side practically sitting on our table, not very appetizing:(

Superb as usual. I would say this restaurant serves the best Veal dishes in Rhode Island. A surprise appertizer of Tuna Tartar was on Special. Great, compares to the best I have ever had. One diner at our table ordered the Black Angus Steak, I would never think to order steak at an Italian Restaurant,but after tasting a piece,I would say it rates with some of the better Steakhouses in the State. Never disappointed after a meal here.

I enjoy the meal selection, atmosphere, friendly service and prices. My only critique is the table on both sides (bar and restaurant) are extremely close together. For example, when you have the 2-tops so close to one another it's as if you're all eating together...not always the best thing when you want just a night out with your loved one.

Hello,

Let me start by saying that the food was very good and we
could have not asked for a better meal. The service was also good and
considering how busy everyone was, we were able to drink, digest and linger. We
did not feel rushed at all. The one complaint was that I was unaware that we
would be stuck eating in the bar area. When I made my reservation on-line a few
weeks ago, it was not stated that we could have a seating preference. If I had
known that there was a chance to be seated in the bar, I would have requested/
declined and made reservations for another time or another place. I would simply
ask that there be a change to your policy so that we could have had even a
better dining ex
