Mostly Good

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.

Server Chris along with keyboards/singer Joe Thayer made this a perfect evening. Chris, our flexible, informed server advised our choices: our order of beet salad with kum quats (yes, different and delicious) and pizza with mushrooms, carmelized onions and special Italian cheese. Sitting outside on a fabricated, purposely designed street was fake as heck. But it worked!!!

We go pretty often and mostly sit outside, weather permitting. We love the food, there was a salmon dish that I loved with lettuce under it, but they've recently changed the menu and we are searching for a new favorite item. I love the margarita pizza. The bar is very busy Friday nights, but it's worth fighting the crowds.

They just have great food here. We really prefer to eat outside on the curb and listen to the performer play Italian songs. This is our favorite restaurant to go to the first Friday of the month during 'Music on Main' to people watch and hang with friends.

Two times I went here for a simple take away dish. First time Spaghetti Pomodoro (tomato sauce). Yesterday for Lasagne Bolognese. We are talking here about very simple dishes charged at some $15 each. In both cases the dishes were cold, the taste absolute blend and portions are very small (to all standards). What can go wrong with Spaghetti Pomodoro?... More

The food here is average. The pizza is the best overall. Good bar area with excellent outdoor bar area. That's the best feature. Tim is an excellent bartender.

Of all the restaurants on Lakewood Ranch Main St the trattoria has the most potential to be great. The menu appeals to all, including children, and their location and outdoor facing bar area is ideal, but their food is okay at best and service is hit or miss depending the server. Their biggest downfall is their food. The pizza is... More

It seems that my husband and I have the same theme-we 're always looking for NY quality food. We met friends here for dinner about a week ago. The food was fantastic!! I had the Salmon and it was fresh and cooked perfectly! Oh yeah btw I started with the escarole and bean soup. It was exactly like my mother-in-laws... More

I stopped by for lunch with a friend and chose the scallop salad, truly a wonderful entree. Our server was very helpful with the menu and the atmosphere is very pleasant.

inside trendy mall and across the street from the movie theater. Great before or after movie dining. We sat at the bar and had the meatball salad and a pizza. Both were excellent. Meatballs next to a caesar's salad were terrific. Cold Peroni beer on tap hit the spot.! very affordable and service at the bar was great. Especially for... More
