Our first time here. Service was impeccable and the food was the best Italian meal we’ve ever had. Osso Bucco was so tender and my strawberry shortcake was delicious.
Our new favorite restaurant in Boca

The lobster ravioli was awesome as usual. Where do they get that superb Reggiano cheese? Wines are overpriced with not enough California choices.

Hadn’t been here in a few years. It’s still expensive but well worth the price. Javier did a fabulous job attending to our every need. Started with a well made blood orange Cosmo then I had the Shrimp Saltimboca served over sautéed spinach. Really delicious! My 3 dining companions enjoyed their meals as well.
Can’t wait to return

This was the first time we ate at your restaurant. Amazing atmosphere. The drinks were very good especially the martinis. For one I’m very picky on how they are prepared. Peter was our waiter and I’m glad he was. Great personality and professionalism. Oh the food just simply amazing. First class Italian restaurant. Highly recommend.

This is a do you not miss restaurant. The signature dish is the Langostinos from New Zealand sautéed and white wine lemon garlic and butter. It was out of this world. Finished with the Tiramisu. Attentive service, yet not intrusive. I go every time I’m in South Florida !

A friend suggested we try Trattoria Romano, and we were glad we did. We are not sure about the ambiance, because we didn't see much when we checked in tor our reservation about 15 minutes ahead of schedule; it was brimming with people. But within minutes the hostess said a table became available outside and we decided to take it. The food was all excellently prepared and served. The portions were large! I wish we had not been traveling and I could have taken the rest of my veal chop special home with me. It was a fabulous meal. The service was very cordial and considerate. It was a lovely night.

Great food. nicely presented.
Had trouble with seating. Made a reservation. It was a very rainy nite. Seems the regulars get preference. There were six empty seats at the bar. They told us.... "reserved."
Sat outside. Raining.... plastic shades helped.
Felt rushed by the waiter.

Had a reservation for 8 pm. Not seated until 8:35pm.
No room at the bar, so we were pushed around by staff as we were in the way standing near the bar.
Can't imagine that they would have held a table for us if we were 35-40 minutes late!

Was kept waiting for a table for 1 hour on a Monday night. Rudely told by the bartender to leave the bar seats where we were having drinks while waiting for our table, so they could use the seats to serve dinner. The food and price is not worth waiting that long for. Plan out your reservations better!
