    We enjoyed our meal as we usually do when we come to dinner. Eric, our server was very accommodating. It was a very busy evening and he did a great job expediting our drinks and food order. The girls at the front desk were very courteous and welcoming. We regard Trattoria as one of our favorite dining experiences and look for ward to future visits!! -Tom

    Food was delicious and wait staff was very attentive. I got the bolognese and it was probably the best I’ve ever had. The bread was very crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside just the way I like it.

    Food was good. Menu holders were worn and dirty. Music level was too loud, forced all diners to shout to be heard, which contributed to the overall noise level. Dinners arrived at table before appetizers were finished; server apologized but table was too small to accommodate remaining appetizers and main courses. Have dined at this location in the past. Restaurant is ok, but not in keeping with the expected standards set by other Canova family owned establishments.

    As usual, did not disappoint. I had the special of the night, pork shank. Tender and delicious mixed with some veg and beans over cheddar couscous. My wife had clams and spaghetti which were cooked perfectly. Service was attentive without being intrusive and he was personable and very knowledgeable. Great dining experience.

    We are regular customers. We also had our wedding reception and baby shower at Trattoria. That's how much we love it! However, our most recent visit, not so much. We made a 430pm reservation for a birthday dinner on a Saturday night. We were promptly seated. Waited on immediately. Others started to trickle in. They were promptly served drinks, apps, dinner, and received their bills prior to us even receiving our meals! Unacceptable! Also, we were never told there was an issue in the kitchen with our food. We were just told that it would be right out, but...we waited another20 mins. Unfortunately, we had to call over the manager to ask why we had yet to be served over those who had come in after us and already had been served, and had received their bill. It was dealt with by the manager promptly. However, she only said shed comp my tea! Until i Unfortunately had to pull the card that we are regulars, had our wedding reception there, etc. Then she comp'd our apps also. We aren't out for comps. Every other visit has been 5 stars, this time not, due to the service. The food was awesome however!

    Our reservation was for 4:30 on Valentine’s Day, the only time we could get. They had 3 people at the reception area and none seemed to know what was going on. A lot of people for 4:30 reservations were left crowded there. They finally started seating us. The dining room was cold but a server responded quickly by turning up the heat. We had 2 servers (trainee?) so service was great! The hostess even went to each table checking on us which doesn’t happen often these days. Food and beverages were great as usual. Big portions, too. Plenty to take home. We’ve been here before for special occasions and will be back.

    The reservation was for my birthday. I haven't been able to celebrate it for two years due to the covid situation in 2022 (when I turned 70) and having covid in 2023. We have had great experiences there before so we chose that restaurant. Very disappointed because the booth was so tight. The only acknowledgement of my birthday was when we were seated. Not even a Hershey Kiss or a mint let alone a dessert. Never again. Back to Capital Grille!

    The food is consistently good here, we love sitting at the bar, the bartenders are great and the clientele always fun to chat with. However, they have a serious problem with time management. The last time we went in for my husband's birthday with our 2 young children, it was 30 minutes past our reservation before they offered us the alternative of seating in their sister restaurant next door with the same menu. Last night it was just us 2 and again, they called for us 30 minutes past our reservation time. Thankfully we had already found vacant seats at the bar and had already ordered our meals by then. They need to do better at honoring reservation times.

    They seated us near the front door so every time someone entered a cold blast of air would make for a very uncomfortable experience. I had reservations for a birthday celebration and they seated us 20 minutes late at the worst location.

    Been a frequent patron at this restaurant since it opened. Have always been able to substitute the offered mashed potatoes for any available vegetable. Last night, I was told there would be an upcharge and that they no longer bring shareable vegetables to the table. May I also mention that the salmon I ordered now costs $10-$12 more than it did just a few years ago. Guess I need to find a new restaurant!

    They were busy, but certain things were not up to par - My wife ordered a second drink and they did not replace the glass and did not garnish the drink appropriately. The special I got was not cooked properly. Our appetizers came out immediately and then we had a long wait for our entrees. Our waiter was nice, but may have had too many tables.

    Everything good as usual. A bit cold whenever the front door opened but they can’t help that. They already have a double door entry. One in our party lives in senior assisted living. They reheated her leftovers for her lunch as she requested and were telling her how great it smelled!
