Food was spectacular. Great Cosmo’s too.
We went here to visit with old friends, wonderful atmosphere. Food and staff both excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant as both a place to celebrate special occasions and to spend time with friends and family.
I live 4 blocks from Trattoria 225, but haven't been in quite a while -- it was nice to reconnect with the restaurant. Service was very good, and the pastas we ordered were tasty, but my friend and I had to go on a search-and-rescue mission to find the roasted beets in the salad. It's pretty loud here on a Saturday night, but it's a "having a good time" loud, so it's tolerable.
Great food. Pleasant atmosphere. Very enjoyable meal
Was there for New Year’s Eve dinner and have been there previously many timed. Food is consistently great. Service friendly. Saw families, groups of friends, and couples. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. We enjoyed the prixe fixe menu items. Great neighborhood place.
Found this little gem by accident and don’t know why more people haven’t discovered it yet. The service is always attentive. The food is good and rarely disappoints although could benefit from a few more vegetarian options. Since the grills are open to the dining area it can get a bit “greasy” smelling but a table closer to the window helps. Unfortunately the creme brûlée was either tempered incorrectly or was overheated and although the flavor came thru the custard was too eggy. Will definitely keep coming back.
Disappointed with restaurant overall. Expectation was that it was a warm and cozy Italian restaurant, but instead we were seated in a long hall type room. It felt like like the waitstaff were at the level of a casual pizza joint. Our specific server was nice, but we had not even finished our salads and our entrees were brought out. My husband ordered a steak which was rather chewy and they paired it with what was supposed to be augratin potatoes - unusual taste and not very good. I had the lamb shank and risotto- it was fine but not great. Risotto should not be so sticky and dense. Felt like it was plated like in a lunch line instead of a fine Italian restaurant.
A few ideas to help this restaurant- need to partition into a few areas using drapery ceiling to floor. Have more intimate seating in the window areas would help.
Partition kitchen area so everything is not viewed by guests. Felt like a large banquet hall with little thought to ambience.
Favorite neighborhood spot! We always order a bunch of food and are never disappointed by the flavors or the service. Relaxing place filled with art as well.
Slow service. We waited 15 mins for a waitress. Once we ordered drinks, it took another 10 mins to get them. We were charged $6 as a separate fee for ice in our drinks. Simple requests seemed to be a challenge.. Food was ok, not great. Caesar salad was bland and served as a wedge. The Au Poive sauce was excellent, but the meat was tough. We had a birthday celebration. Most restaurants comp a birthday dessert, they did not. All I n all, a big disappointment. Do no t recommend. We won’t be back.
Nice place for diner with friends. Very good menu, and also excellent pizza's.
Kid friendly. Our son especially liked watching the pizza's baking in the oven.
