We were looking for an italian restaurant and decided on Trattoria, based on other reviews. We were not disappointed, the food was fantastic, and the servings are huge. My brother inlaw decided on his plate a "chicken rottalini" when he saw them serve the table next to us. It was delicious, we all had a taste.

The food was absolutely terrible. I ordered mussels which turned out were full of sand and not cleaned. The eggplant parmigana tasted like they heated it up in the microwave. Mushy. I spoke to the chef at the door and he gave me the run around saying something about the time of year. I will never, ever go back to... More

We finally returned with our children on a Sunday afternoon and were very happy to see the same menu and staff that were there 4 years ago. The Italian food is hands... More

Trattoria Romana has a lot going for it. It's an unpretentious neighborhood restaurant that serves classic southern Italian food. If you're going as a couple, you don't need to call in advance for reservations. Also, you don't have to choose between a glass of wine or a bottle because Trattoria Romana also offers half carafes. The service is friendly and... More

Southern Italian food and a welcoming wait staff make this Staten Island restaurant a good choice. We enjoyed a late lunch here after a run on the boardwalk. Try the sea perch Florentine or the house specialty, the frittata. A tip... dine early to avoid the crowds.

Our family's favorite Italian restaurant. Everything is delicious and the service is great. I've never had a bad meal or experience in all the years I've gone there.
