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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant has great atmosphere. The service was pretty good especially since we had a trainee. However, the food was disappointing. The crab-stuffed shrimp sounds wonderful but has zero flavor. My risotto was flavorful but not properly cooked (a little crunchy)."

  • "My wife and I and our friends have had lunch or dinner at Tramici's on a fairly regular basis. We have never been disappointed with the food, service, or attention to detail. It is a place that we always take our out-of-town friends for dinner. We particularly love their Wedge salad and pizza."

  • "We were vacationing on St Simons Island for a long weekend. My wife is allergic to seafood so we were looking for a nice restaurant with a varied menu. The braised tips ravioli was excellent along with the evening special. Lucky find on a heavily seafood island."

  • "Tramici's is one of our favorite places for dining on the island. The food and service are outstanding, and being able to make a reservation is a real plus."

  • "We were celebrating our 31st anniversary and Cynthia helped make it a very special occasion. My wife has severe food allergies and our server and kitchen staff were very attentive to making sure we had a safe and fantastic dinner. Food was amazing. We will be back."

  • "One year ago we went with 6 people. Seated late for a reservation at a very crowded booth next to the front and bar. People at bar standing right over our table. Server spills 6 glasses of red wine in the middle of our table. We asked to be moved to one of two other 6 top tables that were open and told they were reserved. Never an apology for the spilled wine or an offer to clean several items of clothes with wine spatter. We returned this year to try again. Very busy. Had to ask about specials and dessert. Very ungracious service. Food is OK nothing special. It appears to be a restaurant that loves the locals and simply tolerates the rest of us. Should add that they were not as busy as they were in the past years."

  • "Three of us dined. Waitress was fabulous and very skillful in advising us what "not" to order. This is important and many restaurants don't acknowledge that a couple of entrees might not be as tasty as others. I appreciate when I solicit advice and actually get guidance. Had the eggplant parmesan and it was some of the best have ever tasted. That is a huge complement! Other two had fish dishes that they loved. Overall, the waitress and her attentive service made this a great evening!"

  • "Waitress was attentive to a fault. Came by twice to recite specials. She did recommend a bottle of wine, which proved to be to our liking. Antipasta appetizer was very good. Entrees, however, missed the mark. Felt menu was not clear. Ordered short ribs with ravioli. Menu led me to believe I was getting actual ribs with a side of ravioli. Very surprised when waitress brought over ravioli stuffed with meat. BTW, the "meat" was not identified on the menu. Beef? Veal? Pork? Believe it was beef. At any rate, menu was misleading. My husband ordered pizza. On scale of 1 - 10 with 10 the highest, it was a 6. We were seated in a booth, as requested, however were by the kitchen/ovens/grille and it was quite warm. Not a real good experience overall."

  • "With new specials every time I visit, Tramici keeps things fresh. I have never had a dish that I didn't enjoy. Servers are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Two of us had the special soup - crab and sweet potato as the only course - all they needed. It was indeed special. I had one of the pizza choices - flat, crispy, covered with Gorgonzola, spinach, and slices of Parma. Perfect. One pizza was enough for two lunches. We stayed and talked long after paying - no pressure, no questions. I love this place!"

  • "Marvelous food for the price. Carol was exceptional as she always is as a server. A little noisy for us hard of hearing generation. Overall just the best value on SSI on a daily basis."

  • "I chose Tramici from information on Trip Advisor. We love Italian food and wanted a quaint little eatery on St Simons Island. Upon entrance to the restaurant, you see a typical bar scene with TV's on, much like a Applebees setup. I was disappointed in the atmosphere and was hoping for a great meal. The pasta and chicken was not very good. I have had better dishes at home. My wife had a ravioli dish with goat cheese and it was ok. On a positive, the service was great and efficient."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Very reliable for great casual dining. Excellent Italian meals."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "I am allergic to corn, especially corn syrup. It was very easy to find good choices without corn syrup on the menu at Tramici. It is not always the case that food is made from scratch or that all the ingredient are known. Kudos to Tramici and the restaurants at St Simons for making it easy for me. We had a wonderful meal at the bar. We started with a lovely thin-crust Marge pizza and drinks . She had the short rib and goat cheese ravioli and I the sea food Diavolo. The Saturday evening crowd was lively but not too loud, the children well behaved, and our bar companions were pleasant and interesting. We highly recommend Tramici."

  • "We were in town for a conference and stumbled on this place on Open Table. We were trying to choose between this place (Tramici) and "Coastal Kitchen and Raw Bar". We ended up at Tramici because it was closer and I'm so glad we did! (See my review for Coastal Kitchen on TripAdvisor...it was AWFUL!!) Anyway Tramici is truly authentic Italian food, I had the Veal Marsala, DELICIOUS! The desserts were excellent too as well as the Lobster Bisque. Will definitely go again when we're back in town for the same conference!"

  • "Always a warm welcome, friendly service and consistent food. Great spot for locals to gather, families to bring kids, and seasonal people to get together and catch up. Just wish they would add to and change the menu some...perhaps more sides and seasonal veggies."

  • "We had a very nice time here on New Year's eve. Although the house was full, we had very prompt service, the food arrived to our table hot and in a timely fashion and either the owner or manager stopped by to make sure all was OK. This is a great place for locals as well as tourists. Make sure put this one on your list of things "to do"."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "New Year's eve is not always the best time to dine out because of the crowds which can lead to sub par food and bad service, but that was not the case at Tramici. Upon arrival we were greeted by the best hostess (Ellen) and made to feel special and welcome. The wine was perfect, the food was hot and delicious and served in a timely manner. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."

  • "I always order lasagna at Tramici's. It is the best I have ever had in a restaurant. The servers are always friendly and continue to come back to the table to make sure you are satisfied, When I come to SSI I meet friends there ,too. The lunches are beautiful and I like to try the different dishes and am always impressed with the unusual combinations; salmon on zucchini patties, etc. Love the presentation,too. I have already recommended the restaurant to friends. I am from Virginia but make a point to come there at least once when I am on the island. Making reservations on line is easy,too."
