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.
I haven’t been here in quite a few years but I’ve always loved it
Great hidden gem. Best place for high end Italian without the high end snobbishness.
Always wonderful, comfort AMAZING food...Have been here many times and will return over and over again!!!
The Trattoria is our absolute favorite place to dine - second to none!
Excellent Food and you can bring your own wine...Highly recommending
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.
Never disappoints!!! Food and service consistently outstanding.
Food and service was great, first time there wasn’t aware it was BYOB. Will definitely go back.
We were 3 adult couples celebrating my wife’s birthday. The food is quite good, however,the restaurant lacks visual appeal.
The best Italian cuisine in NY. Great job, Steve & crew!
Requested Tasting Menu for two without onions, my buddy gets migraines from them. He accommodated and it was delicious.
This is our favorite restaurant. Can’t wait to return.
excellent food, small intimate setting, outstanding service
Delicious food and worth the wait to get a reservation
Always an amazing experience! If you're lucky enough to see an open table you have to take it.. BYOB is an added bonus.
This is one of our favorite restaurants and we go as often as we can. We have never been disappointed. Love the constantly changing menu but still have those few staples that I love.
Food was Fantastic! Service was Awesome! Prix Fix is so much food!
Dinner was amazing!!!
Fantastic. Food is very fresh and service impeccable. Can’t beat the byob
Always and outstanding dining experience! Knowledgeable friendly staff! Can't wait for our next chance to visit.
Food is always outstanding. Such quality and variety. Wish I could eat more!
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.
As always, just superb!! The prosciutto with truffles and roasted peaches—to die for! Can’t wait to go back!
The Trattoria is consistently excellent in food and service as well has a humble and intimate atmosphere. It is our favorite local restaurant for any or no occasion. It BYOB is a plus.
Great as always!!!!
All four of us had a delicious meal
My friend even loved the liver mouse
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.
Great as always. Love the meatballs with polenta, ricotta, sundried tomato tapenade, brasato with polenta, and lasagna. There are some new choices on the menu that sound good.
Fantastic meal and service as always!
Wonderful restaurant. Only two things to know. Cash or check and bring your own wine. Food is exceptional.
Service and food was fantastic. Every bite was delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Had an amazing meal, eggplant Parmesan was delicious!! Our server Suzanne was attentive and friendly and added to our wonderful experience!!
Great food and service. Very attentive and friendly staff
We come here often and always have great food. Will need to make a reservation not easy to walk in.
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.
Always excellent in every way!!! I am never disappointed when I go to Trattoria either with my husband or with a friend for dinner. The service is always fabulous & the food is amazing! Kudos to all who make this small gem in St. James all that it is.
The food is phenomenal. We love that we can bring our own wine.
