Best Antipasto in Little Italy

I love this restaurant! Apparently, so do alot of other people, as there is always a wait for a table. If you want good, home cooked Italian food, large portions and simply the best, most generous antipasto in Little Italy, this is your place. It can get a bit noisy, but that is part of the charm... read 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.

Wanting lunch at 1400 hours is not always possible at sit-down restaurants with some class and distinction. We passed several places of the kind where the dollar sign does not appear on the menu--but we aren't rich. I was photographing signs and flowers etc., and I happened to shoot this restaurant's sign. I noticed the beautiful entre at a customer's... More

Perfect real Italian restaurant. You start your meal with fresh delicious bread and a wonderful salad.Unbelievably good Eggplant Parmesan that simply melts in your mouth. Trattoria's red sauce is just perfect---> if you see it at Marc's or Heinen's buy it, you won't be disappointed.

We eat here almost every time that we visit Cleveland. Almost everything is quite good. The portions are huge. It's an old, loud, family place. During the summer they now have outdoor eating out in the back.

Came highly recommended from one of my doctors at Cleveland Clinic so I thought we would give it a shot as we were only in town for 2 nights and one of them were gone. Coming into the restaurant from the back parking lot our party of 4 was immediately greeted and seated. I love to go to new places... More

My son and I were visiting Case Western and walked over to Little Italy for dinner. It was a Monday night so several restaurants were closed. Happened upon this place and decided to give it a try. It was a perfect fit for what we were looking for. Simple, casual Italian food. Reasonably priced beer and wine. Pleasant and efficient... More

Took the in-laws out for some Italian and selected this place based on recommendation. We have been to a few places in Little Italy but hadn't tried here. We made reservations for a Saturday night and it did seem busy. The main dining room was full, you had to squeeze to get around. It was also quite noisy. We were... More
