A word from Main St Trattoria
Main St Trattoria, a popular priced restaurant, was established in September 1996.

The original menu included numerous salads, pizza, stuffed sandwiches and assorted pasta dishes. In the past ten years, many additions have been made to the menu. There is currently a large selection of chicken, pork, steak, fish and vegetarian dishes. Influences from both northern and southern Italy are prominent, however, other influences including French, Spanish and Asian can be found in the numerous daily specials. Desserts are made on the premises.

Soft lighting, contemporary decor and friendly service contribute to a relaxed atmosphere. Space is available for parties, showers and corporate functions.

    First time here and liked it. They have a good variety of Italian classics and nice selection of specials. Service was good, not overly friendly personality, but she did her job well enough. Tavern-type setting was nice but could use a little hug!

    A bistro like atmosphere but with a very broad menu. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. We will be returning for sure.

    The chicken with tortellini in basil cream sauce was excellent; the steak, a bit dry. Good service but the noise level was over the top, partly because of a family party.

    A good restaurant with amble seating. BYOB is definitely a plus.

    The restaurant has great food and portion size, but is really lacking in atmosphere. Even dimming the lights would make a huge improvement in the dining experience there. The front of the restaurant is way too bright and we felt like we were in a diner. Food was very good though, excellent sauces on the pasta.

    Went to Main street on a Friday night and had an excellent meal. Entrees were just right and the service was outstanding. It is BYOB which might turn off some people but if you carry in a bottle of wine they can accomodate without a problem
