    Authentic Italian dining experience. From the Music to the Menu filled with so many great selections, and a family of servers to take care of you. The Mussels alla Marina were incredible. the Veal Scallopini was tender & had a delicious sauce and the home made pasta with it was fabulous. The Chicken Parmesan was just like "Nonna" made... and then the home made Tiramisu is the best ever! Fabulous place! Feels like Italy!

    Trattoria La Vigna’s food is always fresh, delicious, exquisitely prepared and simply outstanding. The one thing that would improve the experience would be a full bar with craft cocktails. Regardless, the dining experience is always excellent.

    The food and waitstaff were excellent. The owner can be “gruff” at times the food is worth his grumpy nature. He is the “host” much of the time. His staff does a good job covering for him! We have been here 2 times now and plan on going back.

    The service was good, the ambience was good, the food wasn’t very good. I had the lemon chicken, it had a watery slightly lemon flavored sauce on a soggy piece of chicken with a side of mushy broccoli and cauliflower. Don’t think we will be going back. The bread was good though. This was our first time there.

    Varied menu, house-made everything (including pasta and bread), attentive but not intrusive service and a pleasant atmosphere. Food was delicious -- my wife's Veal Marsala and my Seafood Risotto were great choices. We split a Tiramisu (which, incidentally, was comped because we were celebrating a birthday.) I have enjoyed lunch at Trattoria several times, but this was our first trip for dinner. We will definitely be back.

    We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Friendly wait staff. We ordered the mussels for an appetizer, which were flavorful in their tomato broth and seemed quite larger than ones I recall eating elsewhere, and then the Osso Buco and Lobster ravioli (a special) for entrees. Both were incredibly flavorful. The Osso was a first for us, and quite memorable. We had tiramisu and panna cotta for dessert -- perfect ways to end the evening.

    Was a lovely evening mid week and not very crowded. Everyone loved their course and it was nice that a small salad was included. The pastas were a big hit across the board and we loved the tiramisu and the lemon cheese cake was so fluffy. Thanks for a great celebratory evening.

    Second visit was as perfect as the first. This is without a doubt the best food on the island. Excellent service, atmosphere and romantic place for dinner. I had Osobuco and it was fall apart tender and incredibly flavorful, served over the most perfect creamy saffron risotto I have ever eaten. My wife had handmade Lobster Ravioli in pink sauce with a grilled Lobster tail on top. Add a bottle of small Vinyard Italian Red and everything was just perfect. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Five stars.
