Highly recommend food - Service not so good – This would be a great take out restaurant, outstanding food - horrible service. Waiter had problems with English language and order was messed up. I'd stay away next time.
Real Italian Food – If you want REAL italian food on Staten Island, this is the place. Everything is prepared how it is supposed to be, not the usual 'fake italian' cuisine that you usually get on Staten Island. The only thing that could be inproved here are the desserts.
great place! – Never had a bad meal there. One of my favorite places on the island!
Favorite local Italian Place – Whenever I am in the mood for good Italian food, I head to Trattoria for my favorite dish, veal saltimbocca a'la romana. Definitely go for some old fashioned Italian food served by SI's friendliest. Be sure to say hello to the owner who always comes around to check how everyone is doing. The food is delicious and served in good sized portions for decent money.
Hearty, home-style Southern Italian pizzas and more, with serious attention to quality. – The Scene
The bright, cheery dining rooms are pungent with smoke from the wood-fired pizza oven, lively with conversation, and crowded with local families and the occasional gourmet pilgrim. Several doting waiters provide excellent service, even as they rush back and forth seemingly without a plan. The large windows look out on Hylan Boulevard's passing scene.
Despite the name, the home-style cuisine looks beyond Rome for inspiration. The enormous menu, bolstered by dozens of specials, includes pastas, pizzas, meat and fish, soups, salads, risotti, even a "low-cal" section. The pizzas are remarkable, with thin, flavorful crusts--one topped with sharp broccoli rabe and sweet sausage is superb, though any choice works well. Pastas, like the toothsome homemade pappardelle with mushrooms, and the linguine smothered in calamari, mussels, shrimp, and more, are top-notch too, and served in grandly unfinishable portions. Desserts et alia are marvelous as well.
Mama Mia! – Trattoria Romana is my and my boyfriend's favorite Italian restaurant on the island. Even when we eat in the city, we always seem to compare it to Trattoria, which is tops! The prices are reasonable and the food is delicious. The chef is very friendly and is always making sure that his customers are happy. The atmosphere is laid-back and the room you first walk into is cozy while the room to the left can get loud with lots of chatter. At any rate, we always find it romantic and extremely enjoyable!
