    Dined on 7/22/2012
    I had the sunday brunch this time around. It was a bit disorganized and you can tell they don't have their "A" team crew as they do in the main restaurant section. The omelette and pasta station was run by what seemed like a rookie waiter who did not prepare the omelette properly my wife asked for.. But still was good. They need to put out some nicer stuff for the part you can do yourself. The 3 piece music was a nice touch and what comes out of the kitchen is pretty good but this is definitely not like eating next door!

    This was a nice dining experience and an quiet(ish) place compared to the loud casino where the restaurant is located. The food was good, it wasn't great. The service was also good not great. Our waiter was nice but it took a very long time for our food to come and the waiter did not check on us so we could not order more drinks etc. We also had to flag someone down to ask them for bread after waiting for 15 minutes and watching bread be delivered to people at tables who were seated after us.

    We had a wonderful time once we were seated. The food and table service were great. There were four of us and we were all comfortable and happy with the resturant. Unfortunately we did have a bit of a time getting the table, we were told we did not have reservations. Thanks to Opentable and my blackberry I was able to pull up my reservation and we were seated after the hostess studied the reservation note. I strongly suggest either having the reservation on you smartphone or a print out of it, just in case you come across the same issue.

    I had lunch there while attending a trade show. Service was a little slower than what I would consider normal for lunchtime, and the 3:00 PM lunchtime cutoff (presumably to set up for dinner) is too early. Decor is sleek and attractive, but the room is open to the casino whose noise detracts somewhat from the ambiance. However, the food was tasty and the $21.95 prix fixe menu is a very good value when compared to the usual overpricing in restaurants in Atlantic City. This isnt a bad place to have lunch considering the other options - burger and sandwich joints or the godawful buffets that the hotel-casinos insist on operating. However, I don't think think that it has enough going for it to be able to recommend it for dinner.

    I arrived with a party of 6 to dine. After we ordered drinks and our waiter didn't ID us (we are 27.) Halfway through our dinner we ordered a second round of drinks. At this time the waiter asked to see out IDs. Flattered, we happily took them out. At that time the waiter chose one ID and announced he needed the bartender to check it. He ran back to the bar and then back to the table where he announced "this is a fake ID and we refuse to serve you!" After trying to determine if he was kidding (his attempts to joke earlier made it difficult to tell) we asked to see a manager. The manager came over and proceeded to recheck the ID and determine that it was real. The waiter's unprofessional behavior ruined the dining experience.

    I've been to Il Mulino in Atlantic City, but this was first visit to Trattoria. I visited during restaurant week so my choices were limited to that menu. Food was good but not nearly as good as Il Mulino. I took both my kids and had to order full price for everything. The chicken dish comes with veggies and they would not substitute pasta for the veggies and then charged me $12 for a side of pasta for a 6 year old. That was in addition to the $26 it cost for his chicken dish.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    WE dined during Restaurant Week. While the food was good, it wasn't remarkable. Biggest complaint was that it didn't arrive at the table hot. Given that the open kitchen was twenty steps away from where we were seated, there was really no reason for that. Our server was the highlight of the meal (wish I remembered her name, as I would have let management know how great she was). The maitre d, on the other hand, was as pretentious as they come. We were shuffled over to the Trattoria side, even though our reservations were for the dining room. So, the food's good, wait staff better, management leaves much to be desired.

    We've been here several times and have never been disappointed. We just dined there this past Wednesday evening. It was Restaurant Week in Atlantic City and we took advantage of the special menu. The food was delicious as always. The restaurant was very busy, and we had to wait a little longer for our entrees. It was worth the wait. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for the great food and friendly staff.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    First of all, it was restaurant week lunch and VERY understaffed (which did impact the experience). We had the veal (ok, noting special), chicken picata (OK as well) and a pasta dish (which wasn't our taste, but that happens). The salads were pretty tasteless but the meatball app was good. None of the entree's were particularly hot (the pasta was barely lukewarm, but I imagine that reflects that our server was too busy). Since they were understaffed, service was very slow as well, but I think our waiter was good, just had too many tables. On a positive note, the dessert (tiramisu) was very good. Overall, was OK, but we all said that for restaurant week prices, oh well, but glad we didn't pay full price. I would suggest an alternate
