The food is not bad, the service is pleasant and friendly but the noise is substantial. Both inside and outside seating - not for "intimate" dinners. The quality of the food is fine, but there are better places.

Good was delicious and great waiter named Nick. Steak was quite over cooked but Nick made up for it with a piece of cake for dessert.
Ordered med rare and got well done. Did not spoil the dinner though it was all very tasty.

Hi,

My husband and I went there for the first time and both really enjoyed our meals. However we both ended up being very sick later that night and morning. Not exactly sure which dish caused it but we had eaten nothing else that evening. Very unfortunate when we originally enjoyed the food and overall experience.

Another great evening. Short ribs and the zeppola were terrific as usual. The kitchen is always outstanding. It was good to see Taylor, our server, again. He provided great service and is one of the main reasons that we enjoy our experience every time that we go to Trattoria.

Pretty good menu, not bad food, the chicken in the chicken masala was precooked and tasted processed. The pasta dishes were good. Alcohol is expensive

Excellent pasta and good service! But Italian food and especially pasta should ALWAYS come with bread. Having a basket of complimentary bread (no need for garlic bread) would have put my meal over the top. I would have preferred this to the free carrying bag for our ‘take home’, though this was a nice touch. That said, I have already recommended the Trattoria to others.

Tasty food, although one of our party not so impressed. Excellent, genuinely lovely server who made every effort to be welcoming. Why not be super efficient, give people a genuine welcome and deal with them in an honest way? ...Because you're actually enjoying your work perhaps. Says something about this place.

Aug 22nd dinner for 6 at 5:30PM. Food was ok but service was poor. It took us 10 minutes to get our waitress back. We were almost late for Bard on the Beach. Not very anxious to try them again.

Trattoria has always been our go-to for date nights and delicious yet less-busy brunches. Now we’ve discovered they’re also awesome with our baby! Great kids menu, little touches like a special water cup for Chuckles, and fast and attentive service. Thanks Trattoria!

Clearing people’s meals before others are done. Don’t like that.....
Then everyone is watching the slow eaters.

Overall, the experience was fair. The bartender(s) should know how to make a classic martini, and didn’t.
Also, the Caesar salad was the smallest salad for the price I had ever had. I also noticed the gentleman beside me had the same salad and was huge in comparison! We are definitely going to think twice before coming to Trattoria!

This has always been my favourite place in the past although it’s been awhile since I visited. The menu seemed much more limited than I remember with no specials the night we visited and the portions much smaller. I didn’t realize the eggplant frito would be small lumps of deep fried eggplant. My husband and son were pleased with their pasta dishes. The service was top notch and the house wine tasty.

Lamb chops were under cooked and one was well donw.
Short ribs were dry. Very small serving of polenta with it, which actually helped with the dryness.
Tiramisu was soggy and tasteless.
We love food and decided to go there to celebrate a very special ocassion - thinking the fiod would come through. We all felt disappointed. I was also sad because the restaurant was my choice. The pastas people were eating around us looked better.
