Went for my 25th anniversary and spoke to hostess to make my reservation to tell her i would like a special table. she ensured me that they would take great care of our seating.
Sadly, upon arrival the hostess, Brigette, sat us at a corner booth facing a wall.
I asked her for a different table and she showed me one that felt like we were in a service area of the bar.
My wife and I decided to sit at the community table. To make matters worse, Brigette was nasty and rude when I asked for an explanation. I told her this is my 25th anniversary and my request was. placed well in advance. I even asked her how she would feel if she was in my shoes... she ignored me and said those tables were fine.
I have been dining at Trattoria for many years and have enjoyed my meals.
i have decided to not to dine again knowing that there are plenty of other Italian restaurants in town that would be thrilled to have my business.
Please understand that your experience begins when you walk into an establishment and my experience was incredibly unprofessional.
I doubt this review will be listed but i felt the circumstances warranted this review of the inept hostess named Bridgette. sadly she ruined my dining experience .

The best Italian restaurant I’ve been to! A bit pricey but everything about it was top notch! Appetizers on the house were delicious. Our waiter was wonderful! All 4 of us said our meals were excellent! The best!!

Requested outdoor seating. Confirmed by PHONE with the restaurant directly. When we got there we were told that we were not recorded for outdoor seating but… they had a table IF we would leave in an hour and a half!!! We took the table and were served VERY quickly so that we were finished in under an hour and a half. Considering that dinner was approximately $160 for two people, the Service by the staff was not on par with the price of the meal.

After waiting over 20 minutes to be seated for our 8 PM reservation, our party of 6 was led through the restaurant towards a back room. As several of us sat down, we were then informed that this actually was not our table and that we would have to get up! I've never had anything like this happen! Fortunately, we had noticed a vacant table outside (not our first choice as it was extremely warm and humid out and the table was rectangular rather than round) but we took it rather than waiting any longer. Appetizers were delicious, but unfortunately, only 5 of the 6 of us received our entrees. We waited over 10 minutes before complaining - our rule is that no one eats till everyone is served, so our food was cold by the time the last entree made it's arrival. Dessert and coffee were comped but it didn't make up for all of the faux pas we experienced. All in all, not a great night.

I’ve been coming here for years whenever in Boca and they’re consistently excellent year over year in aspects to culinary arts, service and ambiance. No surprise to me since they’re battle tested over the years and like Marciano they keep coming at you (albeit with warm smiles) with everything they got, and keep standing up. Thank you for another round!

One of my favorite restaurants in Boca Raton. It is always on the list of a perfect restaurant to go to for our family’s special occasion, such as a birthday. We went there this past Saturday for my adult son’s birthday (one of his favorite restaurants too!) and it was just as we anticipated. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable! We’re looking forward to our next visit back!

First time here. Overall very solid restaurant with no real issues assuming your comfortable with no social distancing or masks. Slightly older crowd on night we went so assume everyone’s vaccinated at this stage. Food very good, well seasoned, and generous portions (pleasant surprise). Table had burrata apps, swordfish, ossa bucco and gnocchi-all delicious. Wait staff attentive. We’re from Northeast where 5 star Italian is just a slight notch above.

As always, our favorite Italian restaurant. Food is wonderful, place is old world charm, and the experience is memorable. Everyone loves the Papparedelle/Short ribs combo... so many places I take food home... never happens here -- it's that good. Dad had clams (plenty to go around), Mom had Snapper, we shared the beats and finished with several enjoyable desserts (limoncello pie was the winner for us). Corkage at $30 is more than fair and their wine list is actually quite reasonable (quality/price were value).

Hiccups? Service during Covid suffers a bit everywhere... the masks are a nuisance and the poor guy can hardly be heard amid the crowd noise (which is convivial, not obnoxious). Dad didn't get his chardonnay pronto but I've always felt the staffing was a bit light and these guys are running hard to please everyone. The appropriate rating for service is 4.5... not 4.0 (but not 5, either). Still exceptional!

Will we be back? Of course! Love this place!

Amazing food and service was outstanding. Loved the bruschetta that was served complimentary at the beginning of the meal. Veal dishes were amazing! Save room for dessert- chocolate mouse cake and strawberry shortcake were spectacular end to the meal.
Hector did a great job making wine recommendations.
