This place was empty on a Saturday night. I was seated and waited 5 minutes for the server to appear. This never happened so I left.

My daughter & I had dinner here before seeing a Broadway show at the Aronoff. Fortunately, we came on a good friend's recommendation, so I hadn't read any negative reviews. We had a lovely experience. We made reservations well in advance and allowed an extra 30 minutes to be sure we had plenty of time to get to our show... More

Our party of 6 arrived for our 6:15 reservation prior to an 8pm performance at the Aronoff. At first there seemed some confusion with regards to our reservation, but we were then quickly seated. The server asked immediately if we were going to the show. Our orders were taken, and then appetizers.salads, etc were served in a hodge podge manner.... More

I hate eating at the national chains that just heat up frozen food. This is a superior meal. All was great and we will be back for dinner and ready to eat!

My wife and I tried this restaurant during a weekend getaway in Cincinnati. This was a Saturday night and they had a little of a rush being next to the theater; however, this was not their first night open for business and therefore should have been very use to preparing for this. This service was absolutely horrible, it was nearly... More

The men in our group ordered the Lasagna. When it came it was almost an inch high, covered in sauce and cheese. Probably the worst excuse for lasagna anywhere. The women ordered salmon and risotto. The salmon was cooked well, but had a heavy lemony taste. The risotto was overdone and sticky. The waiter was very attentive, stopping by to... More

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

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

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
