I have been coming to his restaurant for years and was very disappointed. The food was incredibly bland - almost to the point of inedible

We were seated at a table that faced a bus station and on the side was a hallway. The bus people were chatting rattling dishes and silverware. The hallway led to the rest rooms and the wait staff’s entry to the bar. We requested to be reseated and were denied. There was constant noise and movement. I had shrimp which was excellent my husband had veal osso buco which was very rubbery. We ordered a $225 dollar bottle of wine and we could not relax and enjoy dinner. I have to say that I felt we were seated in a very poor area because we reserved through open table quite some time before the date. Every time slot was available at the time we reserved. We will not return to this restaurant and we would not recommend it.

Took my husband for Father’s Day dinner. Love the ambience very warm comfortable. Staff was very attentive. The meatball appetizer was amazing and big enough to share. I love that they offer you an appetizer without a charge. Waiter was very helpful. Entrée was a very good portion definitely a dinner with three delicious sides.

Birthday dinner exceptional service and excellent food, fourth time there and have not been disappointed. Special veal chop dinner and Halibut dinner were superb as were the vegetables. In my opinion best Italian restaurant in the Palm Beach County area. Will of course be returning there for dinner in the future. Great job.

Excellent food , very courteous service waiters, presentation of food excellent. . Quality of food excellent . Drinks are filled to the rim .
Only moment that needs help is the gentlemen last night at the entrance . Not sure if he’s just an entrance host or if he’s the actual owner . But not one crack of a smile to make new customers feel welcome . It would be great to be greeted at the entrance as courteous as the valet service !
I will definitely visit again! Like I said everything was amazing . Gentleman at the entrance .... Just smile a little !! Thank you !!

I liked the food very much. The server was very good, except.... they rush you , very, very much.
The appetizers and the wine were brought up in a magic second.
The instant there were finished, the entrees appeared and were on the table.
The plates were removed the second the last bite entered our mouths. And our server asked if we wanted cafe and dessert. I had the bill on the table withing 1 hour and 5 minutes of walking into the restaurant.
I do not like to pay $182 on a Saturday nite to "eat" instead of dine at a fancy restaurant.

Fabulous as always! Mario is an attentive server and very knowledgeable about wine. My husband and I were happy to have a lovely outside table. The bread was so fresh and tasty with the complimentary tomato salad so delicious. I had the veal marsala and my husband had hog snapper and it was a culinary delight. We also enjoyed a bottle of the Livernano 2005 wine from Tuscany. It was a very memorable meal and evening out for my husband and me.

Waiting for a table is very disorganized... You are constant service which shares the front customers. Our table was the first table in front of the host stand as you enter the dining room and the noise of the constantly slamming door had me as a restaurant owner one and adjust the door closer so that it closed more gently. Service was very friendly but extremely slow and it was evident that our food was forgotten about by the length of time it took to reach the table and serving temperature. Our soft shell crabs and was prepared poorly... The taste of the vodka sauce simply was not good and this is my favorite sauce... My wife at the house specialty... The meat was cold and the bed of pasta was ordinary and unflavorful... We did have a nice surprise at the end with a well-decorated cannoli plate in honor of our anniversary. With tip we were over $400 for a meal ($120 was for wine) that was sub par at best.

I dine at Trattoria Romana quite often. I made a reservation through open table for three people for this evening over a month ago.I could only get 6 PM which I excepted, because I know the restaurant gets very busy on Saturday nights. We went there tonight and they wanted to either stick us outside or In the back area of the restaurant in a little boxy corner. We were not happy with that so we ended up getting a table right at the entrance foyer against the window. People were almost sitting in our laps. The food is always excellent, but I felt that when you make a resv. over a month in advance we should be treated like we had never dined there before. Just sayin

Visited with four guests on a night-on-our-own while attending a business conference in Boca. One of the guests lives in Boca Raton and when we invited her to join us, she said we’d chosen the best Italian food in Boca. We were not let down. While the noise level in the restaurant made conversation difficult (but not impossible) the food was outstanding. The bread brought out before the meal was outstanding. The crostini with the fresh tomatoes may have been our favorite dish of the night. I ordered the meatball stuffed with onion, prusciotto and cheese. It will be the meatball against which all others will be compared...outstanding. My wife ordered the special of the night...Swordfisth Picatta. The sear on the fish was perfect. We split the Caesar Salad...it was somewhat pedestrian for a Caesar Salad, but the rest of the meal and experience was outstanding.
