The food, the place, the staff were all ll outstanding. It’s too bad that I live in California and can only get to eat at Trama, Long Branch, a few times per year.
Excellent every time.
I dream about the mussels!
A little noisy but that’s what creates the lively energy. One of my all time favorites!
And the bartender makes a great cosmo.
One of the best restaurants at the Shore. Great food and great service (Andrew and Rob).
Food was amazing. Calamari appetizer was delicious with fresh tomatoes and arugula on the side. Also the eggplant parmigiana appetizer delicious as well. I had the seared scallops with butternut squash risotto. The scallops were cooked perfectly, sweet and tender. The risotto was amazing with the squash cooked perfect not mushy and a topping of pomegranate (who would think). My friends has the Bronzino and were very happy, we all cleaned our plates. Our server Sean was attentive and helpful in choosing our meals and the bourbon old fashion was delicious too. We will be back soon. The only suggestion is on the right side when you walk in maybe move those tables apart a bit. The noise echos off of the walls there and it is very noisy.
Main entree’s were very good but desserts were not. Waiter apologized for it, 2 of the 3 desserts were not finished, but that was it, nothing was done. Most probably will not be back.
Trama is our go to restaurant when we want the perfect combination of excellent food, service, and cocktails. It’s always a pleasure to have Sean as our waiter. Friendly, attentive, and makes excellent recommendations.
It’s always excellent at Trama. Shaun was our waiter and he is simply the best. The food is outstanding!
The service and food was excellent. Their wine list seemed a bit pricey.
I ordered sea bass and thought it was one of the best.
Perfectly cooked and very flavorful.
Been here many times. Always a good meal with great service. Everything is well cooked, fresh and delicious.
Sean was amazing! Great service amazing god as always
The food was all so good and the server made the experience even better. Will definitely be coming back.
Tramas never disappoints. The mussels are fantastic! The shaved artichoke salad is my favorite. The special lobster fradiavlo was superb.
Excellent food as usual Trama is one of my favorite Italian restaurants at the Jersey Shore!
Everything was perfect! The food is delicious and cocktails good!
We could have just quit after the sides they were so amazing! The potatoes and Brussels sprouts were amongst the best any of us have had. Our main courses had a hard time keeping the level up but they were good as well. Top-notch service. A little on the pricey side for the setting.
Great food. Very loud. Very good service. Cocktails were excellent. I am looking forward to my next visit.
Happy hour wine was a great value. All of the dishes we ordered were terrific. We had the capers salad and the tomatoes tasted like summer, in December!!! How did they do that. Pasta dishes were perfectly cooked. It is a bit noisy but better than some other places we’ve been recently. Will definitely go again.
Trama NEVER DISAPPOINTS our favorite place and always perfect dinner
very good traditional italian dishes served with fresh ingredients. Wine list ok, but somewhat limited ambience ok. menu could have been a little more creative - only specials were pasta dishes, no game on the menu, etc. But overall good experience
Rob, the bar tender is so friendly and attentive.
Great tasting food though portions of the entree were a bit small but not too small, waiter was excellent. Wine list excellent. Noise level was high because of one group of three at the bar. Two were fairly loud and one guy was ridiculously and selfishly load. One of those people who yell when he laughs and they laughed a lot. Too bad management did not ask him to lower his voice.
But a great dining experience overall. We will be back.
Best pork chop ever.
First time, great place. Can't wait for next week, going back!
This was our second dining at Trama. The place was bustling and lively. Wait staff was very friendly. We we’re quickly seated. Drink and food orders were taken pretty quickly, but not rushed.
I had roast clams and my husband had the meatball. Both were excellent! For entrees we enjoyed the rigatoni with sausage and risotto entrees. The risotto was the best I ever had.
Desserts were as fantastic as the dinner.
We can’t wait to come back. Thank you for a great evening!
Party of 6 and everyone’s Food was all delicious !!!
This was our first time at the restaurant; the food was ok (not great) but the noise level was unacceptable; we do not plan to go back any time soon.
We love Trama’s Trattoria and are looking forward to trying your other location. The food was amazing as always as well as the wait staff. We were celebrating two family birthdays!!
As always, the food is delicious! Was looking forward to Trama’s famous mussels And was a literally sad when we got to the bottom of the bowl, that’s how good they were
Another great meal at Trama!
Select menu, excellent service. Intimate setting can be loud, but it is manageable. Parking can be a challenge.
Always a good experience
Amazing food and great service, will definitely be back
Trama delivers a 4-star experience every single night of the week. When you are in Andrew’s hands, you are golden. The caccio e Pepe with truffle butter is freaking manna from Heaven. My rib eye was perfectly cooked, as usual and the bar serves up an array of interesting and delicious cocktails, including the 923 which holds special meaning for the restaurant. Tonight - I restrained myself and i did not have the Veal Parm, which is the best version you will ever eat. This place is a triumph. I highly recommend.
Thank you for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your cocktails and all the food ordered! Hope to see you again soon...
I love the location, the food is excellent. I brought 2 new people to the restaurant and they loved it. The noise level is a little high, maybe due to the music playing in the background, it could be a little lower. But overall I love the restaurant, I have been quite a few times.
We love going to Trama. They never disappoint. The meal was delicious from start to finish. Our waiter Sean is fantastic.
Glad you enjoyed! We love Shaun as well! Hope to see you again soon.
So good! Meatball is DELICIOUS WOW!! Pork Chop A+.
Glad you enjoyed! Thank You
Amazing food. Always consistent in what they serve.
