Ok but not great as the reviews indicate. I had the baby chicken special, which seemed to be par boiled before cooking. My Wife and daughter enjoyed the veal.

This is an exceptionally friendly, cosy and fun restaurant. The owner greets you with a hug like she has been dying for you to arrive, and sits down with you to describe the specials in great detail. The portions are huge and incredibly tasty. Go for the lasange if it is on special - take the leftovers home and you'll... More

My colleagues and I had the pleasure of having some lunch at La Trinita on a Friday afternoon. We had some trouble finding the restuarant as it is incorrectly shown on Waze and Googlemaps so I would suggest phoning the restuarant for directions beforehand. The zuppa, melanzane, gnocchi and lasagne were all divine!! We ordered a few different dishes between... More

Although not the most sophisticated of areas this restaurant knows how to please customers. LaLa and her mother make you welcome with a hug and even a kiss. You go and pick your own wines from the rack. Then ignore the menu as LaLa will reel off all the fantastic fresh dishes she has made freshly that day. The food... More

From the moment you arrive, LaLa and her mother make you feel at home. After my first visit they knew my favorite wine & remembered my choice of pasta dish. LaLa's lasagna is the best I've had, but you have to phone and book it if you're coming for dinner. She only makes a few dishes a day and the... More

Ask about the daily specials. La-La, the host, will take the time to explain them to you and will take every effort to ensure that you enjoy it.

Great service and good atmosphere make this homely restaurant a definite hit. Lovely host/chef who spends time at every table makes the experience all the more enjoyable. Food was also excellent, with some great specials. Restaurant doesnt really fit in the shopping complex in which it is found but still has some stand out qualities that will definiitely see me...
