la trattoria di Francesco is an experience that will allow your pallet to travel through out the flavor and aroma of Italy.
dishes from north Italy like our tortellini, duck and fiorentina
or some souther Italian dish like carbonara
fettucine al nero di seppie and baccala.
To dine with us is to understand that dinner can not be rushed
we believe that every meal is the opportunity to share time and good food with family and friends . we believe that dinner is more than just food its an experience.
our chef like to say that cooking and serving is an act of love because we do it for others

The food and service was amazing! Unfortunately it took about an hour before our food showed up, but it was worth the wait.

Excellent fine dining restaurant with exceptional service, ambiance and food food. Menu selection is unequalled by any other place in Salt Lake. For authentic Italian cuisine it can't be beat with even a trip to Italy.

The food is excellent. We had 3 different dishes plus desserts-all were great. The service is very good-just know this place is not into speed dining. It is a slower pace as we were there 3 hours start to finish. It is definitely on the upscale side as far as feel, presentation and decor. This is not some mom and pop red checkered vinyl tablecloth kind of place. The owner/manager was working the room and very friendly and seemed genuinely interested if the patrons were enjoying the meal/experience.

You can tell that every employee truly takes pride in what they do. They really want to take good care of you. You pay for it, but it's an experience to dine here that I hope many to have the opportunity to enjoy.

My daughter and I were celebrating her birthday as well as her recent move to a new apartment in Sugar House. What a wonderful surprise to find this restaurant so close by. It was definitely a combination of ambiance, service and food that made the price easier to swallow. It has been many years since I have had such a fabulous experience at a restaurant.

Excellent. The staff, the presentation, the food: all of it was excellent. You absolutely get what you pay for. Really looking forward to coming back and trying other menu items. We shared the courses (2 of us) starting with salad prepared table-side; primi course shared the pasta trio; carne course shared the tomahawk steak (we took a lot home - way too much for the two of us); espresso and shared cannoli for dessert. They start you with really lovely rustic house-made fresh bread as well. My only “less than perfect” suggestion for the restaurant would be to up their game on the Caesar salad. The croutons are what you would expect at any old place. They could use some of the day old from their house breads and make really wonderful and unique croutons.
Keep in mind this is more of a fine dining version of their other restaurants. Some reviewers were expecting the same as Sicilia Mia or Sicilia Antica, etc.. I’ve been to several of their locations; and while I’ve generally enjoyed them all, this one is special. Could not have been more pleased with the entire experience.

We made reservations thinking we were going to Sicilia Mia where we had eaten before in a different location. We found this location on their website expecting the same menu, same prices, same experience. WRONG! The prices were higher, the menu different and the food not good. Two of us ordered the "famous" Carbonara served table side in the wheel of Parmesan cheese. WRONG! They brought out a bowl of their version and served it in two bowls. When I asked they said "yes we get a lot of comments that we dont do that". The pasta had pork in it not pancetta and was rubbery and not good at all. Nothing tasted the same or was the same. And with the big bill at the end of the night and a very disappointing meal and experience we felt like we had been deceived. Wouldn't you think when a restaurant advertises 6 locations they would all be the same? That is usually what happens but unfortunately not this time. Dont waste your money.

Fantastic addition to the Salt Lake dining scene! Before the meal was over I was already saying I wanted to come back immediately. Service was friendly and attentive and food was beyond expectation. I highly recommend the Ceasar prepared tableside & the Spaghetti al Limone e Caviale. Can't wait for my next visit.

We tried La Trattoria for the first time. Service and staff were wonderful, friendly, and outgoing. We had a Caesar salad for two, the tortellini, and the lemon sorbet with fruit for dessert. Because we are vegetarians who are serious about vegetables, we were sorry to see that there were no vegetable sides on the menu. Mostly the entrees were meat, and we don't eat meat. That was the downside.
We recommend that the salads might be served for one person with more vegetables and a more diverse offering of salads

We LOVE this chain of restaurants are were excited to try this new speciality location for our five year anniversary. The ambiance is fantastic and we were seated right by the kitchen and were able to watch them prepare the food. It took quite a while for someone to come over and give us menus after we were seated. It took even longer to get an actual waiter to our table. We were disappointed by the food, which surprised us both. I wanted a salad, but my man hates salad and the only option they had for salad were ones that served two people. The carbonara noodles did not seem to be cooked enough and the pesto dish was bland. We had numerous staff come over and welcome us and check- in on things, which was nice. However, three different staff came over to ask if we wanted more bread (to which we replied yes), and we never received it. Same when asking for Parmesan or pepper. Still love the family of restaurants, but likely will not be trying this location again.

Service was exceptional. Food was excellent. The only reason for four stars was portion size was small for the entrees.
