What a unique LI restaurant. The tasting menu was very interesting and delicious. And the food kept coming - we ran out of wine before our dinner was over.

Great hidden gem. Best place for high end Italian without the high end snobbishness.

Very good food, personal touch but limited menu, check it before you go. BYO wine nice touch. Make reservations, it's a small restaurant with tables close together.

Some of the most beautifully prepared, imaginative and tasty dishes of any of the Italian restaurants on Long Island. Not overpriced, and YOU CAN BRING YOUR OWN WINE anytime. Because the place is tiny (We estimate about 30 seats) it has a cozy feeling. Very casual--no tablecloths, simple tables, open kitchen, wooden walls, etc; It has the feel of a simple country kitchen. But the food is outstanding. Fixed price 3 course dinner is $40. FP 4 course is $50. Well worth it. Lots of choices with enough variety to suit everyone's desires. The service is personal and excellent. Must reserve well in advance because of the limited seating.

As always, The Trattoria did not disappoint. We have been there several times and everything is consistently great. The scallops, brasato, and maple marscapone cheesecake were unbelievable. The polenta is amazing - I have tried and failed to recreate it to no avail! We will of course be back as soon as possible!

My wife and I have been going to Trattoria since it opened; we have never been disappointed. We just wish that reservations were easier to come by but the wait is well worth the reward.

The food is the star here. The pastas, the short rib and polenta, and even the desserts were swoon worthy. The ambience.... reniniscent of my den in the 1950’s. No matter. I will definitely go back for the food.

Very small. Don’t plan on staying long. You will be asked to leave the table for the next seating if you have an early reservation. Limited seating.

Joe DiMaggio had a hitting streak of 56 games. My friends and I have racked up over 20 dinners at The Trattoria and all of them have been hits. It will take a while longer but that's ok. We can't think of a better way to pursue a record. Thanks to Steve and all the wonderful staff.
