Trattoria Romana In Wakefield Ratings and Reviews
I always look at the menu before I go spend I don't get overwhelmed; then I only need to check the specials. The layout and the food are excellent. On Thursday they were filled to the point of perfect enjoyment: you don't want to eat alone, but you don't want to not be able to talk either. They really know their business. But the sauces are the reason we go.
The ambiance was splendid and the meals were very good. Veal Saltimbocca was more of the traditional Italian dish than other close by restaurants serve. The pasta is fresh. The Veal Parmigiana was huge, tender and delicious! The Salmon from my wife's point of view was excellent. The appetizers; calamari was very good with a nice spicy marinara dip, the mozzarella wrap in prosciutto was not good (I don't think prosciutto needs to be smoked), however the stuffed finger peppers were good. The only bad comment I have was that the bread served was burnt and had a burnt taste, and the olive oil and balsamic vinegar dipping was terrible. I think they added pepper or something to it, mixed with the burnt bread it was horrendous.
Since it was our Anniversary, we ended up with cocktails, appateezer, great bottle of wine (Brunello del Montalchino), and to finish it off with the Lamb OsoBucco. Which was totally unbelievable. Meat just fell off the bone. We had great service, waitress was wonderful and her timing was perfect, did not bother us at all. The ambiance was great in the beginning, then it filled up and became a bit noisy. Everyone was talking about the Patriot game which was to be played later that day. Go Trattoria, Oh...Pats.
Trattoria Romano is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. However, we felt the food was not up to their normal standards on this visit. The bread was delish, as always and the Caesar Salad was good. But, I had Chicken Francaise and my husband had Veal Francaise and we were both disappointed. Our friends, on the other hand, had Chicken and Veal Parmigiano and loved it. We will be back, but hate when the food is not consistent. Always love the ambiance.
we have a party of 8 come every new yrs. we love the place. the food, and the service is the best anyware, how he can remember 8 dinners and all of the drinks, without writing them down,
is great. I come with my wife all the time during the season. but we all look forward to the new
yrs night!! thanks!!!
Our early New Year’s Eve dinner was superb for several reasons. Through our Open Table reservation, I asked for a table in the dining room, and it was provided. Michael, our server, greeting us in a friendly and professional manner. His mastery of the extensive holiday menu was clearly evident and our order was remembered perfectly. Our meal was served in a timely manner, dishes and glasses cleared as needed, and Michael checked with us in unobtrusive fashion. Both our entrees were excellent(lasagna and veal sorrentino), and the after dinner martini and decaf cappuccino were fitting ends to a wonderful dining experience on an extremely hectic evening.
Great meals. Perhaps best Italian food in Rhode Island. The best dessert since Vienna thirty years ago! Puff pastry filled with light cream, covered with milk chocolate and topped with whipped cream! Unreal. All meals were excellent. Veal Francese, pasta dishes, even spaghetti with meatballs were way better than good. Service was a bit overly attentive and cliched, but fine. Highly recommended.
We had an amazing evening at Trattoria Romana in Wakefield. The service was the best we've had there and the food was terrific. I forgot our waitress' name, but she was outstanding. She got the order right and we did not have to wait long to be served. We will be back.
The food is always great at this restaurant. Scott, the manager, does a great job of making you feel welcome. I'm kind of limited when it comes to the kind of food that I can eat, but I never have a problem finding a delicious meal at this restaurant. Great menu at fair prices. Servers are polite and friendly.
The food was delicious and the service was amazing. But pricing is starting to get bit high. There are many restaurants in Rhode Island and I feel having a steak at this restaurant where they charge you $50.00 is extremely high. Not sure if we will go back.
My husband and I have been going to the Trattoria since it opened......we find the food and service to be exceptional, always........we love being able to bring our friends and families to a place that always top notch......Trattoria is our favorite restaurant!!
Food and service were both excellent. However, we arrived earlier than the reservation time to enjoy a drink at the bar, and found the bar full of diners. When a seat opened up, we were told that there was a wait list of people to be seated and therefore had to remain standing. The experience would be more enjoyable if dining wasn’t allowed at the bar.
We were not served what was ordered on two of the dishes. One returned and one eaten.
The waitress was very sweet and kind but made light of the mistake and took no responsibility and blame was placed on the people serving.
Very uncomfortable when three people are eating and the fourth is not.
I have been to this restaurant several times and I have never been disappointed ever. The service is always pleasant and knowledgeable always makes you feel welcomed. The food is always awesome from chicken parmigiana to veal chop to fish special always fresh and delicious. The ambiance is inviting and romantic and also family oriented. If you eat at this restaurant you will not be disappointed! I give it 5 out of 5!
I was very disappointed recently. The Calamari Fritti was not fresh and was over cooked. The Fruitti Di Mare Posilipo was very disappointing. Sea food was not fresh and was mostly mussels. The pasta was over cooked. Traditionally, I looked forward to eating there, unfortunately that is no longer the case.
