The service was awesome, from the hostess to the bus person to the waiter. The food was very tasty as well. I had a dirty Tieto's martini, it was made very well and poured at the table. My husband had the artichoke salad appetizer, which he said was very tasty. He ate the halibut that was on the special and they gave him a nice sized piece with a few mini potatoes. He said it was very tasty. I had the scallops which were also very tasty, but there were only 5, which left me feeling a little underfed as there was nothing else on the plate. Overall I would give it a thumbs up and definitely recommend

This was our second time here. We ate the bar. The food was fantastic. The staff is very friendly. The other patrons are highly sociable. This is one of those places where we immediately felt at home. We will absolutely continue coming here.

Our waiter Sean (spelling?) was incredible. First class all the way. And the food… outstanding. My close friend ate the Salmon and I had the Chicken Parm. Both cooked to perfection. A true gem on Brighton Street!

Consistently the best service, food, and cocktails in the area. Great job done by the entire staff considering so many restaurants are struggling to hire. They are all so nice and hardworking.

Great dining experience. First class service and top notch creative and delicious food. Nice wine list and terrific bartender. Love the new outdoor dining areas on the side and in front. Look forwardf to returning again for another fantastic meal.

FYI, if you go for outdoor dinner this summer and don't like any sun exposure ask for a table in the front, not the side.

Disappointing
This was our first time dining at Trama's since the pandemic. The branzino which used to be excellent, was very average, and a smaller, less appealing presentation. The traditional Italian food we ordered was good. However, with the restaurant back at full capacity, we did not appreciate being told we had 1-1/2 hours to eat. (8pm reservation) We wanted to order a bottle of wine, but opted not to, because we didn't want to feel like we had to hurry up and finish before our time was up. Lastly, several diners complained about the condition of the rest rooms.

Delicious food. Great evening to sit outside. Had a reservation, 10 minutes late due to less parking in area. Hostess said your 10 minutes late, you only get 1 1/2 hours minus 10.minutes. really, why not let it play out, and it did. Will still go back.

As a regular I was very disappointed last night to see that chef has taken the eggplant parmesan off of the menu. Well I appreciate it is a hearty dish it is a staple and outstanding and hopefully he puts it back on.
