We stopped through Caen for dinner and selected this place based on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The owners we're so nice and the meal was excellent. I had their signature dish which is a pasta that is mixed up in a wheel of Parmesan. It was sooo good. Prices were reasonable and the owner spoke good English as well.... More

In an area do Caen jam packed with restaurants, it was hard to decide which to go for. We picked this restaurant as we wanted a change from the Normandy cuisine. We struck lucky. We had a very good dinner and the service was warm and efficient. We were given a dish of herby cream cheese with chicory as an... More

Friendly relaxed atmosphere. Excellent food using local produce. Generous portions and good service. Although we didn't have it, the special carbonara,prepared at the table in a huge parmesan cheese looked amazing. Puddings were pretty good too. We had the "coffee special" - a coffee served on a plate with various delicious small puddings to accompany it. Good value for money... More

I have enjoyed S. Mugnaini La Trattoria ~ four times EACH a memorable meal/evening. I like the old Caen warmth too, which I see changing a little in the charming town. From bread to dessert (if you have room) were top notch with presentations that will make you smile!.Great specials too to complicate your choice. English menu available. American Express... More

We found this restaurant, located a bit hidden in the touristic street rue Vaugueux, thanks to the good reviews at the Tripadvisor site. It was a wonderful experience! I've never eaten such a delicious lasagna before, and my friend was very happy with the veal 'en trois saveurs'. The food was of very high quality, and at a very reasonable... More

Could the waitress be more helpful? Only if she carried me to my car afterwards. Simple delicious pasta with some delightful Italian wine, what's not to love. The dish cooked at the table next to us and finished in a massive cheese rind was a sight to behold!

Exceptional quality meal. Great ingredients superbly presented by extremely professional staff . We were truly impressed, this is not just another Caen restaurant, it is special and well worth going out of your way for. We may have struck lucky in getting a table without booking, imagine in high season advance booking would be prudent. A sincere thanks to all... More

We were roaming the back streets in Caen and stumbled upon La Trattoria. I asked the family if they felt like Italian food and they agreed. Not expecting anything beyond a family owned restaurant, we entered in and were seated. We were a little before the rush, so we had no idea whether this would be a popular restaurant. We... More
