Food here is really very good. The tables are crammed together though it takes away from the experience a bit; you can literally hear what the ppl are talking about at the tables next to you.....so yes, it’s loud. Service and food are good. Had one of my fav Cabs on the menu and we ordered it and they were out.

Excellent Italian restaurant. The food is authentic, delicious, and enormous. The service is excellent. A bit on the noisy side but overall well worth the trip.

First time there we pre ordered a strawberry shortcake for my wife’s birthday, it was beyond delicious! Nicky the Waiter was on point, we never had to ask for a new drink. The food was simply delicious, and what a beautiful place. Just an all around great evening with friends and family.

It was our first time dining at Trattoria and Alfredo made our evening very pleasant. The service was impeccable and Alfredo was very attentive. The food was excellent and the wine list extensive. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

Great food, service and variety. A little pricey, with tax and generous tip almost $200 per person. We did each have a martini and shared a bottle of wine...but we also shared an appetizer. So great experience but only for special occasions.

I have to say that I’ve been coming there for prob 15 years or more and since Covid I have seen the changes. New to the 200% occupancy I was a little shell shock with how crowded it was. I do feel that some people got better attention amd I know in the past you always had so many specials....our waiter told us 2 specials maybe, and the table next to us A diff waiter rattled off about 6-7! We are avid foodie and diners living in S fL for over 20 years. I feel maybe since I always reserve on open table it’s like we are never greeted or even management says hello or good bye or thank you upon leaving.

Just the attitude is sub par. Casa DA always acknowledges us. Just saying.

Tables were downsized and packed too closely together with no regard to what is happening with COVID. We have been going there often and will no longer go back. Noise level was awful and to impact the entire experience was that there was a line of 25 people waiting for their cars as there was no organization....it appears that there are regulars that give the tickets for cars to be pulled up and they are not ready to leave....very inconsiderate and management was there, but obviously did not care about their diners.

Specials were not what they usually are. Dover Sole was breaded and fried. Terrible and veal chop was covered in sauce and very mediocre. Apps were great but very disappointed.

It was a birthday dinner... which wasn’t even acknowledged after it was placed in the notes when reservation was made through open table...also our server, Alfredo, dropped us like a hot potato when the “regulars” were placed at some of his other tables. We felt like we were being “stalked” by the host/hostesses who kept coming to check and see when tables would be available in the room we were seated in while we were sitting there with our dinner plates already cleared but waiting for someone, ANYONE, to ask us if we would like dessert or our check! The valet also tried to give us someone else’s Porsche Panamera when we left and didn’t believe it wasn’t ours all while my husband was trying to hand him our valet ticket! Good thing we were honest people! I was not impressed at all...

As always, everything we want in a restaurant. Prompt and professional service,delicious food (and sizable portions, too), attentive yet not overbearing waitstaff... and what we consider to be reasonable prices.

I brought the 100 point Renieri Brunello (2015), so ordering anything from the bar was out... but we'll live with that :)

We shared the red and golden beets which was plenty of food. Good, not great, but it settled our hunger down.

My wife had the Pollo Portofoglio and I was pleased to share and bring home the leftovers. I had the Pappardelle Short Ribs and it (as before) is just an amazing meal at such a modest price. And there was enough to bring home! Both entrees receive full marks from us.

We were celebrating birthdays and she went for the Chocolate Mousse cake while I chose the Limoncello Pie. TR provided candles for both. Both were wonderful closers and by then the Brunello had about run dry. Coffee was good, not Italy good, but enjoyable.

Inexpensive? No... but well worth what we paid. The seating (distancing) certainly keeps the volume toned down (lol) and it was refreshing not to have patrons packed on top of us.... but I look forward to seeing this establishment running at full speed so it can make money and get past this covid mess that is killing our restaurant business.

Kudos to Trattoria Romana for continuing to deliver excellence amid these difficult times.
