We've been coming here for 15 years. They really are bad with reservations. Always behind 20-40 minutes.
I asked for a special room with a waiter we love because it was my wifes birthday. I even stopped by in person one afternoon to make sure we were set up right for the special occassion. Waited, waited, waited and finally we were sat elsewhere in a louder part of the restaurant. Our favorite waiter helped us out there because he knows us.

This has happened before. I wish they'd be better at scheduling their loyal patrons.

We waited quite a bit for our table to open but it wasn't a deal breaker. Our server was an interesting guy, who explained the menu and specials very well. We really enjoyed the beautifully ripened tomato salad and delicious bread. Entree portions were very generous (be prepared to bring home eats for the next day) and the presentation eye appealing. This was our second visit and we do plan to return.

This restaurant continues to be one of the best. The food is absolutely phenomenal. The service is great and the ambience is vibrant. The only downside is that whenever we show up for our reservation it is a minimum of 45 minutes delayed. They should do a little bit better booking rather than trying to squeeze the most in that they can. But this is a must go for the best Italian food in the area.

While there is never a doubt that the meal from Trattoria Romana will be excellent, on this occasion their service has to be questioned. I had friends in from Philadelphia, and we told them this is a must when they visited. When arriving at the restaurant for our 7:00 reservation, we were told very rudely by the matra'd that our table was not ready and it would be 15 minutes or so until we were seated. Now we all understand that these things happen, but his attitude towards us was totally unprofessional. He acted as if because the facility was crowded, it didn't matter what we thought about the extra wait time. No worries, on to the bar to have a cocktail while we wait our extra time. 45 minutes.......yes, 45 minutes later we finally get seated. Does he apologize or offer a word of regret? Not a chance, he acted like he was doing us a favor. Needless to say, we were embarrassed by this (un)level of service in front of our friends. Food, 100%, service, not so much. Very surprised that a restaurant of this caliber would employ a person with this kind of poor attitude. We will still return, but I will never bring out of town friends there again.

The food was very good but I called ahead and told the hostess that we were celebrating a milestone anniversary . Nothing was done and I was very embarrassed . I spoke to a female manager and she apologized . Not a good ending.
I am adding to this review a day after to let this establishment know of certain issues. When we sat down we were completely rushed maybe because it was an early seating. I told the waiter to just give us a minute to collect ourselves and his attitude showed. I then asked for a menus and his snappy reply was “ have you ever been here before ?? If I was smart I would have changed tables. I was i the small back room. This Resturant now that I’m thinking about it was all about turning tables. This has probably ended my relationship in doing business . The women manager was all words of sorry but in the end never extended any good will. Again it’s all about the bottom line but for this patron it’s lost revenue in the future. The waiter was disrespectful and the whole evening was a shame.

Food was good - not outstanding.
Felt rushed to get us out the door - bill was left on table without our requesting it. We didn’t like that. I understand they were busy but we weren’t there even a hour. Will not return -

Another very nice evening at Trattoria Romano, for my mother’s birthday. Booked a table for two at 5:30 and requested a quiet table. It was fairly quiet where we sat, in the back in a corner table near the bar. Carlos our waiter was very attentive, the bruschetta excellent. My mother had the grilled veal chop, which was done perfectly; I had veal piñata, very tender, seasoned well with capers, lemon and olive oil.

Overall a very nice evening, even tho the restaurant was crowded.....
