Trattoria never disappoints. We love the food and the atmosphere. We had a very large group with children and special dietary needs. We were handled graciously and thoroughly. All good.

We went to dinner early and had the place all to ourselves. Food and service were very good and Pina came out and visited with us. Highlights: homemade pastas and desserts. Panna cotta was awesome. Salad and anti paste platter were also good to share. Prices were very fair for both food and wine. This is the sort of place we will come back to again and again.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Galveston. Don't be afraid to order off menu as they will try their best provide what you crave. Though not on menu, they whipped up a great Piccata sauce for my girl. The Rib Eye steak is a hidden gem.

The best ribeye on the island. Beats Paco and Steakhouse. Vegetable lasagna explodes with fresh flavors. Chef Pina prepares her sauces from scratch daily and it makes a huge difference in the flavor. Handmade desserts to finish an amazing meal makes the experience incredible.

This is one of our favorite restaurants on the island. The food is consistently excellent. Even on a busy night, the chefs go out of their way to fulfill any special request and we are never dissatisfied. The pesto gnocchi with scallops was supposed to be an appetizer but my husband asked for it to be prepared as an entree and the kitchen was happy to oblige and did a delightful job. My husband said instead of a special, it should be added to the regular menu! We love this place! A special thanks to Pena, Sal & Andy!

Despite a reservation, we had yet to have our table wiped off 30 minutes after our reservation. When we learned they were running out of specials, we left. On weekends, it would be best to get the earliest reservation possible to get seated and before they run out of food.

Food was just okay. Service was less than okay. Our server seemed distracted or overwhelmed. We had to wait for refills on our water. After we ordered, our menus stayed on the table until our food was delivered. I was just not impressed. Oh, and I has mentioned in my reservation that it was my husbands birthday. And that I would like an acknowledgment. Nothing. Even after mentioning it to our server, it was seemingly ignored. Very disappointing

Pina and Sal always deliver an outstanding dining experience. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and the evening was exceptional.
Our server, Sumeyya, was pleasant, courteous and very professional. The veal and lasagna were delicious. Best cannoli I have had in a very long time. Thanks to everyone who helps to make Trattoria la Vigna so special.
