Convenient for downtown theater

Pleasant. Very convenient. Will get you in and out when you have tickets. Food is fine but not 5-star.

Being a "Foodie" and a retired Gourmet Catering Co. owner I know food. My husband and I have never been to Cincinnati before so decided to go for a weekend. We spent a half an hour picking out our first great restaurant for our first dinner there. So we picked "Trattoria Roma". The people and service was great. We ordered... More

The food was extremely good and the service was excellent. I am really surprised the place was not busier. When we were there it was only us and 1 other table. The bread melted in my mouth. I had veal, which I know grosses some people out, but if you are a veal lover, it was cooked to perfection. My... More

Location is great for many activities downtown. We were going to Taft for a comedy show. First time visit to the Trattoria. Service was decent, not many people for a nice Saturday night. Drinks were respectful for the price$$$. Lasagna was ok, spinach was great. My pasta was tasteless. More like a not so fancy macaroni and cheese dish. Soup... More

Not a bad place to visit before taking in a show at Aronoff, but would not suggest going here for a big night out. In a similiar fashion, can bring children/family but would not a date night place. The best part of this restaurant is the bread - borderline amazing as it comes alive in your mouth. Pasta is fine,... More

I was enjoying my Caesar salad with grilled yet tender, perfectly done salmon, and looked up to see my two teenaged boys had pretty much inhaled their 16 oz steaks. "It was really good mom!" said both. My husband, who tries lasagne everywhere, said it was really good here. Dessert was inhaled and claimed to be fantastic by all 3... More

The staff is very friendly and quick. The food is amazing the fresh bread and dipping sauce the best!! The Caesar salad dressing is made in house and very tasty. Many choices for a picky group and everyone loved their dinners.

We went with a group of 28. They were super accommodating. This is a very charming restaurant with fanastic food. I had the lasagne. It was not the typical multiple layers of pasta and cheese. It was cheeses wrapped in pasta with the perfect amount of each. The sauce was excellent. The homemade rolls were served warm with dipping oil.... More

This is a very good Italian restaurant in downtown Cincinnati. We dine there often before attending events at the Aronoff Center (it is right across the street). The dishes (excepting salads, which are usually mediocre) are well prepared, and the service is almost always good. The selection is modest, as is the wine list, and prices are in the intermediate...

Nice dinner after the play. Nice atmosphere but food was just ok. Ordered the filet and it was covered in steak sauce. My friend had pasta and she enjoyed it. With all the other choices around I wouldn't go back.
