Trattoria Roma on Wells Street

i agree it used to be a good place we order a bottle of white wine and then had to asked that it be cooled as opposed to just being left on the table plus waiter did not come to back refill wine glasses minor points but they all add up in seriatim

Trattoria Roma on Wells Street

Had a bizarre dinner there last night.


Waiter and hostess were fighting about whether or not he called her Suzy and she told him that under no circumstances was he to use that appellation.

Guys next to us were talking really loudly about business and using graphic physical demonstration of what they hoped to do with young women if they found any after dinner.

Then for the food:

Had to demand wine cooler for bottle of chilled white wine.

Waiter abandoned usual style of introducing himself or anything on menu. Instead he said "what do you want?"

This carried through to after the entrees (which were ok but not great) when he came and said "what else ?" To which I said "how about dessert?"

The hostess was preoccupied with chatting with someone and maybe checking her lip gloss and nails. Would we ever return? No way. This place borders on rude if not unschooled in basic manners such as concepts like please thank you hello etc.
