Fantastic service and delicious meal. First time there and we walked in at 7 pm on a Wednesday night. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Several interesting specials but we ordered off the menu. Chicken piccata ($22) with angel hair had a great flavor. I...prefer thinner chicken cutlets but overall it was very tasty. The tour of Italy ($28) had lasagna, chicken parm and pasta (we selected gnocchi with marinara). All delicious. Bread basket and garlic butter was served. Nick provided outstanding service and the young man assisting him kept our drink glasses topped off throughout our meal. There are several things on the menu we want to try so we’ll be back for sure! And we want to try the amazing desserts.More

Trattoria is on the main strip in Grandview, with outdoor seating. Indoor seating is socially distanced. The cocktails and food were very good. Portions are large. My each had pasta. Next time we will share. Friendly staff.

Bad Night? Hate to give a bad review based on one night, but here goes: outdoor reservations and had nice table. Decent wine list, not what you would come for. Split Frito Misto. Calamari like chewing slices of a hose. Shrimp and veggies very good....Bread warm and tasty. Featured seafood Mahi Mahi cooked to death! Ordered angel hair (excellent), arrabiata (tasted no spice), meat balls (tasted not done). Our server was excellent. Comped the appetizer and brought a shared dessert that was good but didn’t finish. Supposedly someone new in kitchen. Were not busy. Been there too many yrs for this to be normal??More

Submitted on Feb 21, 2020 It was late afternoon on Jan 26, 2020, when we decided to have an appetizer-type meal in Trattoria Roma, and take out two full entree courses for dinner later at home. Our server, Erika, was very good and helpful. Back...to the food: the Antipasto Misto appetizer was excellent, though a bit salty. The two entree courses were: (1) Cioppino, which was very good, and (2) Salmon + Carbonara Risotto. Our complaint is that the Carbonara Risotto, i.e., the side dish of the salmon, was sweetened. We did NOT like the sweet taste of the risotto at all. We discovered the sweet taste at home. We think that "Carbonara" means an Italian pasta dish, made with eggs, hard cheese, cured pork, and black pepper -- AND NO SUGAR. We did NOT find "sugar added" in risotto recipes either -- we checked quite a few. Our solution was that we rinsed the risotto made by Trattoria Roma with water at home, heated it, and ate it then without the sweet taste of the sugar, with a little pepper added. -- This was a rather unpleasant experience for us. The word "sweet" must be added to the description of the side dish -- it must be "Salmon + Sweet Risotto." Needless to say, we would not ever order a sweet side dish served with salmon.More

Thank you for joining us for dinner. We would like to explain a few things. You ordered the salmon that is on our menu. The menu description says "Seared salmon, maple-bourbon reduction, carbonara risotto". Which means that it is a classic carbonara risotto, but the...More

This was the best meal I've had in my year living in Columbus. The bread was truly incredible; it was substantial and great for dipping without being crusty. The caesar salad with anchovies was undoubtedly the best I've had; the croutons (which I generally don't...care for) were incredible (I believe they were made from the focaccia). The create your own pasta had a wide array for sauces; my fiancee's bolognese was especially good. The meatballs were absolutely meaty but still completely melted in your mouth. Finally, the salted caramel tiramisu was an excellent variation on a dish that's hard to improve upon. Our server Shawn was very attentive and our waters were always full. I recommend Trattoria Roma for both food and value.More

Visiting from Denver and found this rated 43 out of may on this forum. My parents had not heard of this restaurant but it was my choice for dinner. GOOD CHOICE is what it was! i won't call her server (more table manager) but Cathy...made the experience wonderful. She offered good suggestions when asked, checked on our progress appropriately, and made certain the three courses were delivered timely. The food was as large portion, hot and fresh, and did not disappoint. If you have the opportunity to visit this restaurant, do so. You will not be disappointed.More

My wife and I were in the area and were in the mood for italian food. Google and our dining coupon book sent us to Trottoria Roma. What a treat! The service was great and the food was even better. Everything is fresh and hand-made....The stuffed meatball appetizer was very tasty. The lasagna had the perfect blend of meat, cheese and pasta. We will definitely be back!More

I had a fantastic dining experience! The food was superb and service was excellent. I am a 40 year vegetarian and found plenty of options on the menu. I had the polenta appetizer and vegetarian lasagna. Both were incredibly delicious with wonderful sauces. All of...the dishes had unique combinations of ingredients and flavors. My server, Shawn, was extremely knowledgeable about all the menu options and ingredients. He was there when I needed him but not but was not hovering. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!More
