So great to be back here after two years away! Fried artichokes superb as always.
Too much dressing on the Little Gem Caesar salad. Bronzino and veal piccata excellent. Limoncello pie divine. Dining early Sunday evening after Alvin Ailey performance, so not as busy as usual which means the noise level was comfortable.

En esta ocasión NO nos ofrecieron nada de entradas, no pan de cortesía nada. Pasta que pedí insípida, sin sabor, camarones parecían que eran de lata y sin sabor. Pizza que pedimos “podíamos ponerle todo” no tenían varios productos extras. En esta ocasión no fue nada agradable SIN sabor la comida

As usual a great experience. Youssef welcomed us in a very friendly way and secured a table on a great spot. We enjoyed the veal parmigiana and ravioli with burrata cheese and was delighted with the very famous cannolis. Great and lovely experience. Highly recommend it.

Overall a disappointing experience. Staff were exceptional nice but obviously overwhelmed. Service was extremely slow and took 30 minutes to get cocktails. Bartender obviously did not know how to make a whiskey sour and initially just gave whiskey and then added some lemon juice only. Food was average. Tables were inches apart and hard to even walk since everything was so crowded. In this world of COVID, need to space tables out a little. Felt bad for staff who were really trying to provide good service but not enough staff for the volume of clientele.

Pre covid one of my favorite restaurants. Have even had my office staffs holiday dinner here.
Antipasto has sadly been reduced in variety, salty mushrooms , but still enjoyable (I make better Brussels sprouts ).
I remember the veal cutlet parmigiana being amazing (had several times before) but again heavy handed with the salt, breading on cutlet opposite of crispy (at least the underside?), wet more descriptive.
Wife’s filet mignon covered in a sauce, overpowering a very quality tender to the extreme cut. But this time no salt no seasoning. Unless you prefer only the “sauce”. And although I can’t believe she likes ketchup on her steak there was none to be found in the restaurant. Warm carrots, cold and too aldente.
Waiter start was excellent, antipasto and dinner arriving in very good order. Impressive. But then the dirty plates sat to a point (25-30 minutes) when my wife’s opinion changed to being poor service (she was right).
Sadly not a favorite anymore.

Extremely slow service. Had to forego dessert to make my curtain. Out of stock wines not noted on list. Bread only available at a cost-this is a mortal sin for an Italian restaurant. Very pricy. Food was delicious though. Love the Stanley Bliefeld bronze bas-relief at the entrance.

Everything was good, would have been great except for noise level. Diners next table over seemed think they needed to yell at each other than just leaning into the conversation with their party. Very ignoring.

I found the food to be fine - not fabulous, as the prices would indicate.
The service was excellent, but in terms of ambiance, a large print of bare buttocks was right in my eye-line. Not the best choice.

I met a friend after not seeing her for two years due to COVID. We had a great meal and talk with excellent service. One of the servers must have heard it was her birthday and they put a candle in our shared desert - so sweet.

We have eaten at the Trattoria on and off for many years and always appreciated the food, the atmosphere and the service. Dinning here on Sunday evening, the food was, as always, wonderful. But I was disappointed with the service.We arrived at 5:30, before the rush, and the restaurant already seemed lightly staffed. Our waiter was pleasant and our food was served quickly, but after being served, he seemed to be covering too many tables and did not check in. Getting coffee and desert took a while. Not sure of you are having trouble restaffing, but it was not the experience we have become accustomed to.

Pasta was lackluster. Ordered the $30 charcuterie plate that was tiny. One small ball of cheese and a couple pieces of meat.
Chicken parm was the best thing on the menu

My family and I loved our table in the wine cellar! We celebrated here two years ago; the food that time was outstanding. We all agreed that the food this time was still very good but not quite as good as two years ago. Is there a new chef?

I know you were closed for 18 months or so due to COVID-19. Perhaps things will work their way back to the level they were prior to closing. My fingers are crossed that will happen.

Don’t despair. We plan to return next November for our annual celebration.

Seriously divine! We went in the later evening on Thanksgiving and we’re pleasantly surprised to find the staff were upbeat, welcoming, and still at the top of their game after such a long day. We had a large party. Some ordered off the menu and several of us got the prix fixe traditional Thanksgiving meal. The food was seriously delicious. The servings were great- not so much you couldn’t eat it all but not so small that you felt like you didn’t get enough or it wasn’t a great value.

We requested a window table in the front because of the noise level and lack of space in the back, which despite being crowded seems very popular. We were given the table we requested, and enjoyed the reduced noise level, extra space and the very consistent, excellent food and service.
