Went to the Trattoria yesterday and loved the food! The service there was fantastic, Elin helped us and she was very knowledgable of the foods and recommendations. My friend is very allergic to several foods and the Executive Chef, Craig Scherer, came out and explained different options he could do for her. This made our experience there unreal! They were...

I recommend this restaurant very highly! The atmosphere is excellent (a bit loud on a Friday night, but definitively a lot of fun!), the wine, the salads and the pasta are excellent. They will make some subsitutions, too! On my last visit on this past Friday, I had the Linguine Pepper dish...it has a fancier Italian name. The dish was... More

With serious garlic cravings we decided that we needed to find an Italian restaurant in order to get a garlic fix. We had walked past the Trattoria on previous evenings and it was always very busy, a good sign, so we decided to head in. We were seated swiftly and informed that Wine by the bottle was half price that... More

loved the sharing pasta dish...but not on Tuesday nights. Tuesday night is $11 pasta night and the menu is not the regular dinner menu. Still good but I would rather spend a little more and go on a night you can get the shared pasta platter....it is actually a big boat of pasta, lots left over for the doggy bag... More

Trattoria is a great local restaurant for us. We like to eat there once a month with some close friends who also live nearby. They have a great deal here on Pasta Tuesdays, when you can get any pasta on the menu for $11. Not the best pasta I have ever eaten, but it's usually pretty good and at 11... More

Very good food, no doubt about this. Quality is right up there and plenty of "must close eyes to enjoy this flavour more" moments, though the prices are a little high for it to be the average person's weekly meal out. Romantic atmosphere, pretty good staff (though some will try a little too hard to sell you on the more... More

This is the second time I have been to Trattoria on West 4th. The first time (in April 2013), while the restaurant was crowded, busy and the food took ages to arrive, the service was fantastic and food good quality. Tonight however, the food and service paled in comparison. We had to wait about 30 minutes before our order was... More

We went to Trattoria for my daughter's 15th birthday at her request. We've tried all other Glowbal Group restaurants and been overall pleased. We were seated promptly and wine Wednesdays = burrowing owl for $34 - yay!
