Excellent service and delicious food. We ordered the tuna tartar, seafood salad, halibut entree, branzino fish, and salmon dish, which were nicely cooked and tasty.

I’ve always loved Trattoria Diane since the first time I dined there. First time back since covid and it was just as great. They changed the menu for the summer season added Halibut which I love but no more scallops or Tuscan pot roast maybe it will be back for the winter and they changed the appetizers I believe and it’s limited. But I love the fact they have halibut it was super fresh, cooked to order and just awesome! I love when restaurants have halibut on the menu or as a special it’s my favorite fish. Accompanied with smooth and great tasting mashed potatoes. Always save room for dessert because they make everything fresh at their bakery next door. I always go with the three berry pie with vanilla ice cream and we also had Angel Food cake with raspberry sorbet, fresh whipped cream and fresh strawberry. So yummy. I enjoyed and recommend Trattoria Diane! Hope they will have the halibut for a little while longer I can’t wait to go back.

This was a return appearance. We are never disappointed with the food here! Last night, our waiter was not very attentive. Perhaps he had too many tables due to staffing issues, I don't know for sure. Regardless, if you haven't been, do make it a point to go to Trattoria Diane!

Menu did not accurately describe the meal that was served. - Veal Milanese,
Soft Shell Crabs, and octopus was not anywhere near appropriate portion.
Chicken under brick, skimpy.
All food tasty.

Diane’s zucchini blossoms are consistently the best around. My lamb chops were excellent and my husband truly enjoyed his lobster roll. No other restaurant or bakery can surpass Diane’s when it comes to desserts.

Classy, refined dining. The chopped salad was fresh and not of one flavor note. Halibut and skirt steak entrees were equally delicious.

This was a birthday dinner for my daughter and I noted it in my reservation. She is a vegetarian and we chose this restaurant because it was the site of her rehearsal dinner a number of years ago and it featured many vegetable appetizers. Our expectations were high. Unfortunately our experience was disappointing. Our waiter seemed unfriendly and disinterested. It took a while to exchange a dirty wine glass for a clean one. Our appetizers were good but the one vegetarian main course was bland and boring. We only ordered one dessert and no recognition of a birthday appeared. We left feeling underwhelmed. Our past experience of friendly and competent staff was just a memory.

Haven’t been here in some time and thought we give it a go. Food wasn’t awful just blah, no flavor or excitement.
Garden was very nice and you can tell they have had some turnover on their waitstaff.
We ordered three apps, zucchini blossoms, octopus and artichoke. Super basic with no flavor (had to add salt!)
I ordered the Veal Milanese, again very blah (NOT BAD) just blah. Desserts were good.
Kitchen needs some help in my opinion

Service is better in a sports bar. This has been an on going problem for years. Management can not blame the poor service on the lack of available employees due to Covid. Management needs to train the staff.

Reaching over plates, grabbing plates while we are still eating, and then continue to to try to grab plates after we told them we are not done. Waiters aimlessly walking as if they are trying to kill time and never inquiring about the meal. We needed to flag them down, for a drink, for coffee, for dessert, for the check.

The upstairs where we have not sat in a few years was not pleasant. The art was the quality of a continuing education art school student. It did not improve the rooms ambience it lowered it. The restaurant had a weathered wood table with a white chipped and rusted painted medal garden pail which had flowers. This maybe ok decorations for outside but it was an additional eyesore. Diane lost attention to details and is failing to provide overall customer service and a enjoyable dining atmosphere.
