Classic Italian for a great price!

My friend and I took the suggestion of the literature distributed by the training we attended at Case Western Reserve University, and tried this local favorite. We were not disappointed. We had read on TripAdvisor that the gnocchi was great, and it was, indeed. The portions are enormous, so we... read more

Thought we were in for a nice italian meal. White cream sauce was uninspiring. Hostess was very surly and abrupt. Gave the impression that we should be honored to be dining there. Other better places in the area.

My mom and I had an Italian Frittata and a house salad. We loved all the vegetables in the frittata, and especially the spaghetti sauce. We also loved all the olives and cheese in the salad. There were 5 different types of olives. Yummy!

A nice place in Little Italy. Came back to Cleveland for a visit with friends and stopped in for dinner. It was really crowded and we were seated in an enclosed glass room near the parking lot. I love to look around at the people eating Italian food. We were busy talking with our friends and eating. The food was... More

Went here on a Tuesday evening with a small group before an event. I was surprised at how crowded it was being in the middle of the week. After dining here I can see why it was filled. A classic Italian restaurant located in the heart of Little Italy. Upon being seated we were brought I fresh basket of bread... More

Went to Trattoria with 5 others for a weekday business dinner. Waited at the bar for the group to arrive. The bar at the front of the restaurant is nothing special. Almost an afterthought as the bartender would disappear for long periods of time, leaving me and one couple at a table wondering. I wouldn't grab a happy hour drink... More

Located in the heart of Little Italy, Trattoria Roman Gardens is a classic Italian-American restaurant. I had the eggplant Parmesan which was okay, but my partner had the gnocchi, which were absolutely amazing. Service was good, decor was nice, bread was okay... Basically, just go for the gnocchi. There’s free parking in the back.

The atmosphere around Trattoria is fantastic. Our waiter was extremely helpful and pleasant. The portions were huuuuge. I ate the gnocchi for three days afterward (and didn't get tired of it).

Good food. Huge portions. A noisy family restaurant. Not a place to go for an intimate, romantic dinner.
