I had the lasagna and the marina sauce lacked flavor and the pasta was missing one of the sauces listed on the menu. Unfortunately the quality of the food did not did not justify the high prices.

Went there with friends and had a great time. We sat outside on a Saturday night and listened to the wonderful live music. It was not too loud so you could talk at the table with no problem. We loved the pizza and our friends liked their pasta dishes as well. We all plan to go back. The server was... More

I stopped in today for lunch. Sat at the bar. The bartender was just cashing out a table she was waiting on then poured me my draft beer. She went off for a while, waiting on tables I guess. When she returned she was mixing drinks for another server. After that went off for a few more minutes. Came back... More

Pizza's the best we've found in LWR. Not NY mind you but really good with thin crust and ample toppings. Service attentive. A nice neighborhood place. Too bad they don't deliver.

The pizza and salads are usually good. They have a nice happy hour. The outdoors area is very nice and scenic.

My friends and I were enroute to another restaurant when we passed by Main St.Trattoria,with it's outdoor Bar seating,and Patio dining. Playing an unobtrusive,yet poignant piano,was a gentleman(later identified as Joe Thayer) singing a right on cover of Frank Sinatra's Summer Wind. Be advised,Joe's repotoire is eclectic,from Elton John,& Billy Joel to Mr.Sinatra. Inside,the décor is hip,upscale casual. First thing... More

The pizza and calamari were excellent. All of the food that came out of the kitchen looked amazing. Our server, Sean, took great care of us. We went to MST last night after first Friday and we expected it to be crowded. The wait took forever and there were tons of open tables. The 4 hostesses seemed to have no... More

My wife and I went to the Main Street Trattoria today for lunch today. I asked the waitress what was really good for lunch at the restaurant as I hd never been there. She suggested the Steak sandwich which I thought was a strange choice at an italian restaurant. But, she stated people come back specifically for that sandwich. So,... More
