A Lovely Evening Out

On a recent evening out with the wife we stopped here a bite to eat and a cold beverage. We have been here several times and find that the food is OK and reasonably priced. The PIZZA is best. Happy hour till 7pm and the entertainment, Joe, is terrific. He plays Wednesday to Saturday from 6-10... read more

I don't know why people like this place... Must be the full bar, its certainly not the food. I keep trying, but have yet to find anything edible.

The food is fine. I like the pizza the best. We ate there several times now. I think they have a problem with staff. It takes a while to order and it takes a while to get your drinks so its a place we go if we are not in a hurry and already in the area. We also found... More

We went with family. Three children and six adults. It was first Friday so streets were very busy and closed off due to an event. Parked off site in an insurance parking lot and walked over. Expected a long wait but were happy to get a table outside near all the action. We had pizza and pasta. The kids all... More

After reading mixed reviews, we decided to take a chance and try Trattoria. Wow are we glad that we did! Being a Thursday evening around 6:30 the restaurant was not very busy. We were greeted at the door by a very pleasant young lady and were seated immediately. From the minute we were seated, our server Doug was attentive and... More

We stopped in to enjoy the happy hour and try the food again. We have been here before and did not have great food. Glad to report that things have changed! We enjoyed half priced drinks and an order of fried calamari. We asked for it to be crispy, I just don't care for soggy calamari. It was perfect! They... More

We met our friends who were visiting from New York. The weather was beautiful and sat outside...with the nice music. We ordered various appetizers to share, salads, pizza and pastas. Everyone was very complimentary about the food and very professional service. Our friends comments..some of the best Italian food outside New York. We dine often at the Restaurant as it... More

We were a party of four. It was a rainy night and not at all busy, so really there is no possible excuse for the poor quality food and service we experienced. Our food arrived cold and once we tasted it, we quickly realized it was not worth asking them to heat it up. Expensive and not tasty...hardly worth recommending.

Sat outside for dinner in a perfect setting. The gnocchi appetizer was a bit unusual. The pizza with arugula was delicious! We ordered the large one for two people and took half home. Our waiter was excellent and helped to make it an overall good experience.
