Chicken Parm could of been hotter and needed more mozzarella on top. It was delicious. Filet Mignon was tender and cooked to my husbands request. Fellow diners were very friendly. We will return

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.

Great meal, server was Caitlyn- very accommodating, knowledgable, friendly. She made our meal something special. Food was great- I had a veal dish and my husband had a pasta with sausage. Our friends enjoyed specialty sangria which the server recommended and they loved it! Will definitely be back.

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!

Trattoria Romano never disappoints! It's the only Italian restaurant in the area with a true 'city' feel. We had a fabulous waitress and the food was excellent, as always. My only gripe is that both couples in our party split Caesar salads and they were pretty skimpy. Otherwise, everything was perfect. The atmosphere always feels somehow 'celebratory'. We'll be back!

Trattoria Romana is hands down one of the best dining experiences in Rhode Island. Not only is it authentic Italian food, the atmosphere and service is exceptional. The drinks are always delicious and the food is great time after time. The menu is huge and offers something for everyone. Every time I go I am so impressed with the staff - from the bartenders to the waiters, they are very professional yet down to earth. If you are looking for a nice dinner out, this is the place to go!

Phenomenal food! The waitstaff are super friendly - the food is delicious and the wine list is reasonable. One caveat - make sure that you advise the kitchen to go light on salt. Pasta can be oversalted. Portions are gigantic - be careful how you order

Overall, this was a decent restaurant. There was an issue with one of our entrees, not being as expected. After dinner, we went to the bar. I ordered an old fashioned, and they didn't have bitters. Who doesn't have bitters in stock? A while later, the (co-owner?) came to the bar and jingled his keys. It was very annoying. Was it a sign he didn't want our business? Or is it just him? Either way, it bugged us enough that we left. Recommendation: stay away from the italian guy guarding the front door. Enjoy the meal and the bar staff!
