A word from Tramici
What does Tramici mean? It means "among friends" and Tramici is the place where you want to be with friends and family to enjoy delicious American-Italian fare including Housemade Mozzarella with Basil, a crispy 4 Cheese Pizza with Arugula, and your favorite standbys like Spaghetti and Meatballs or Oven Baked Lasagna. This lunch and dinner restaurant is the second venture of Dave Snyder, owner of Halyards and The Halyard Restaurant Group. Chef de Cuisine John Ryan is on hand to ensure warm hospitality and a great experience. The decor is casual and highlighted by a 18 seat bar, 8 tables in our courtyard, and an open kitchen to watch the delicious food come out of the Wood Stone Oven. The adventurous wine list and cold tap beers will pair well with the menu that is changed with the seasons. Tramici is family friendly with a full Kid's Menu and open everyday where tables for walk-ins are available all the time.

    Dined with my two babies (1 & 3) and husband. Great food! Fried Avocado appetizer was exceptional. Eggplant parmesan was good, though served so hot that it was difficult to enjoy in a timely manor. We also had Fettuccini Alfredo and the banana pudding, they were above average. Pre dining experience was great because they papered the tables and provided crayons plus kid menus to color. Service was accommodating, fast and friendly.

    Everytime we come to St. Simons Island we have to come to Tramici's and we are never disappointed. We were here for the McGladrey Golf torunament and saw several PGA tour players eating here--I'm sure they look forward to eating at Tramici's as we do.

    We took friends toTramici on Saturday evening for dinner. Not only was the food delicious, the service was excellent. Our table in the newly renovated outdoor area was quiet and intimate. Our friends had never been to Tramici. Theu say it is now their favorite restaurant on the island! It was a wonderful evening, complete with personal greetings from chef/owner, Dabe Snyder.

    Many of my friends raved about Tramici's. Our experience started fine. Made a reservation on-line for 7 PM on Sat. We walked in and they escorted us straight to our table. Unfortunately, our waitress did not see us. Another waitress preparing for a larger group got us some water. Our waitress was pleasant after she showed up. The bread was very good and so was the appetizer of Fried Calamari. The meal took a very long time to come out, which is usually a bad sign. Usually meaning it's sitting under heat lamps waiting to be delivered. Our Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken and a Shrimp and Crab pasta dish both came out cold, my noodles were half cooked and pasty. Replacement meals tasted like watered down Knorr meals. 4 Shrimp total

    The environment is too loud to hold a sensible conversation with friends. There seems to be a lack of intimacy overall. Not at all what I had anticipated. As far as my veal parmesan: the meat was dried out. I had several people recommend Tramici. I will give it one more chance, maybe the whole staff was off or I on the other hand expected more.

    Tramicis is a good place and enjoyable ambiance but with the number of equally good restaurants at this pricepoint, competion is fierce. Food quality was above average and service was excellent. Defintely recommend to people visiting the island who are going to have several meals out.

    We have been to Tramicis many times. Each time we go we see how we get less food for the price we are paying. Last night was no exception. We will most likely not return. We paid $12 for peach cobbler which was the special dessert of the evening. Taste was mediocre and price was unreasonably high. Entree included eggplant parm which came with nothing - no pasta or salad. I think the food is generally good, but the value is not - the prices are too high

    We came here for a Italian cuisine but were particularly disappointed with the under prepared eggplant Parmesan. The only reason I would recommend to a friend is that the lasagna was very good, James the waiter was attentive and friendly, and I was told afterwards that the fish specials are what I should have asked for

    We had read about Tramici on different food review sites, so we were excited to try it. We were seated promptly, and after requesting it, given a drink menu. Our server brought what looked like great bread to the table, but unfortunately, although it was warm, it was stale. Our salads were only so-so (bland dressing, skimpy ingredients) and our pizza with spicy sausage was fine, but nothing exceptional. Our server then brought us the check. No dessert menu was offered, no coffee or tea- just the check. So, since there are certainly other great dining spots on St. Simon's, we will not be returning.

    We recently gathered at Tramici to celebrate birthdays of close friends. It was a delightful evening in every way. The staff was outstanding-just right. The chicken piccatta was delicious. It is one of my top favorite restaurants on St. Simons; consistently a great experience in every way. Another outstanding feature of Tramici is the high quality and freshness of the food. I love the fact that I can have a healthy, light and scrumptious dinner there.
