We were glad to get off the main strip and away form the noise of the crowded waterfront restaurants. This place is quiet and relaxing. Lots to take in with the antiques around you as well. Service was great and pretty quick. Food was very good-- spaghetti and meatballs was very tasty, and eggplant veal special was very good. Nice... More

We have dined here for the past 8 years in the summer. Unfortunately, the last couple of years the quality of food has gone down and the prices up!!!. Tonight, iced the cake. We come just for the Grilled Calamari appetizer and we ordered two. The waitress came back to tell us they only had one order left since they... More

Summer is the best time as you can be outdoors while barbecuing. I loved their pasta dishes,service and location. It is an easy walk to the Algonquin Theatre.

If you like frozen pre made food which they charge a lot per plate....this is the place for you. Nothing is home made but it's ok...service is wonderful and so is the atmosphere...however that is not worth the $$$ per plate.

We had dined at Trattoria last year and had a nice meal so we opted to try it this year. My husband the 3 course special which was eggplant Parmesan (very good), sweet potato ravioli & creme brulee~ all were very good. I had the veal which said lightly breaded....I guess I was expecting more of a veal cutlet instead... More

Not real Italian food, as I have had that. Tastes like Chef Boyardee canned. Very close tables. Service was not great, and would not do food without peppers etc. Shows things are pre prepared.

We enjoyed a wonderful Italian meal here together. The food was only surpassed by the excellent service. I could eat MSG-free at this restaurant.
