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

This is the second time I've tried this place. First visit was bad, second visit even worse. I ordered a caprese sandwich. My sister got a pesto spinach pasta. Her pasta was lacking the spinach and any flavor at all. Tasted watered down. Mine came on a baguette, tasted freezer burnt. Awful! We took one bite and waited another 10... More

Enjoyed the pizza alot. Went there during "happy hour" so the drinks were half price...a good deal. Others in the party had mac & cheese (which was good), chicken parmesan (good) and shrimp scampi (so so). Wait staff was attentive.

Walking around the Lakewood Main Street there are many choices of eateries. My friend & I decided MST looked inviting. We made a great decision. The atmosphere was comfortable, food choices all sounded wonderful and the item I decided was a special that evening. I was not disappointed. We were served by Christopher who was training a young lady as... More

We decided to try Main Street Trattoria for dinner. Once seated, we waited a few minutes before our server arrived. She was very friendly and pleasant. She had a rather large table of diners street side and a few tables inside. She was kept pretty busy running back and forth between all of her tables. We did notice one table... More
