We went to The Trattoria for the first time. We had a party of 6 to celebrate Valentines Day and my Dads 80th birthday. Everyone was very pleased with the food, service, and friendliness of the staff. A hidden surprise! I will definitely be going back.

I’ve been going to Trattoria for many years. I’ve enjoyed every meal and this time is no different it was excellent. There is always something new and creative on the menu that keeps you coming back . If you’re a real foodie this is a place for you, here you can experience excellent food and you will be bored.

What an incredible restaurant. After reading all of the reviews I was sure it would not live up to expectations, but boy was I wrong.

The Trattoria brings me back to dining in Italy. A wonderful, quaint little place where the food was to die for. The service was superb, the other patrons were friendly, and the BYOB allows you to enjoy an excellent bottle of wine without the 200% upcharge.

Chef/Owner Steve came by to chat with us and even recommended some cookbooks for my wife to try. We were quite impressed by the amount of time he spent with us.

This is the type of place where you arrange your day by the dinner reservation, not the other way around!! Give the Trattoria a try - it will not disappoint!!

Trattoria is one of our favorite restaurants, the food is always very good, the setting is relaxed, we are happy to bring our own wine and we never leave feeling like we over paid for an unremarkable meal. Until New Years Eve...I was shocked to find a table still available when my husband and I decided to have dinner out at the last minute, so we made a late reservation. We were seated early, which was nice, and got menus right away. We ordered the same appetizer we always get without really concentrating on the menu as we were really in no hurry. The appetizer came, and when we finally took a glance at the menu we realized that it was a $90 per person 4 course dinner menu, which was not indicated when I made the reservation on Open Table. We have eaten here more than 10 times in the last year and have never had a bill that amounted to $270, with the tip, even when we were there with another couple. Had I seen mention of this when I made the reservation I would have opted for somewhere else, as sitting down to a 4 course meal after 10:00 at night would not typically be a choice we would make. And for the bill to be more than double the amount we are used to paying, kind of took some of the enjoyment out of it for us. I understand charging a premium on particular holidays but it should have been noted on Open Table, or at least mentioned when we were presented with the menu. Unfortunately this really changed the experience for us and will likely keep us away for a while. I may look forward to going back once the sting of feeling gouged goes away a bit.
It was a decent meal but not at that price.

One of the few Long Island restaurants who serves authentic Northern Italy cuisine. Great home made ricotta, best polenta e brasato ever. Veal parmigiana was incredibly tender.

Peconic Bay scallops! Get 'em while you can! Food was excellent, as usual. I took off a star because it was a Sunday night, and we were only given a multi-course prix fixe menu. There were no a la carte options. It was too much food for me.

I have been here several times and it's always nothing short of perfection. It's a small place so be sure to make a reservation. A bit noisy but worth it on every level.
Our server Tina Marie was fabulous. Made us feel extra special.

This restaurant is AMAZING!! It is small and intimate and the food is sensational. It is always fresh and beyond delicous. The service is amazing and very personal. Most of the time the chef will even come out to say hello and make sure you are enjoying everything. I can't say enough about this place. We come with friends and also for romantic dinners for 2. LOVE!!!
