Busy Mother's Day

We went here for Mother's day lunch. Even with reservations we still waited for 1/2 hour. The food is above average, but the staff is excellent which made up for the wait

We've been long time guests - many years - didn't want to believe the reviews....unfortunately this gem is now a complete disaster... We used to love coming here...you could "smell" the downward slide as we walked in...,felt like an old peoples home - and we are senior citizens! Don't waste your time / a terrible evening

I was promised by the owner he would call and we could chat about my family's awful dinner at his restaurant. He never called. I'm disappointed, we paid the full bill, we tipped our waitres well. We were nothing but nice and understanding and we were treated nasty by the staff and the owner. It's sad we had high hopes... More

We dine there regularly and have rarely been disappointed. Should anything go awry, they do their best to correct. As you visit more often the owner and staff make sure they recall your preferences and needs. It is a favorite location for attentive, but not fussy dinners. They have a complete wine list where wines are still affordable. Worth a... More

My husband & I went on Mon. for my birthday dinner. It was very quiet, only a few of other tables were filled. We were waited on quickly and the waiter was nice. Like the title of this review says, we have never had a bad meal at La Trottoria. My citrus grilled salmon and risotto was delicious. My husband... More

I have been to this place for the last time. I went with my son after the sunday brunch ended. We wanted a quiet lunch. I orderd stuffed lobster ($35) not cheap.My son got the a choice piece of beef (also $34) the beef had places with such a stench and taste I had to remove it from my mouth.... More

Although it's a little off the road, this is a lovely place to enjoy a very nicely prepared and presented meal. There early bird specials are especially a good value with more than ample portions. They also have a birthday plan where they send you a coupon for a free meal with the purchase of a meal. There's a large... More

The 20 yr. old wanted go out for Italian on his birthday, so we let him pick the restaurant. La Trattoria is a big, popular restaurant and was pretty full on a Saturday night. We were seated quickly and a small bread basket with a few pieces of crusty, tasteless Italian bread, two pieces of focaccia and a couple of... More

We attended a banquet-style dinner at La Trattoria on a weeknight in early December, in light snowy weather. Over 100 people were in attendance from 6pm to 10pm (approximately). The wait staff was attentive, keeping water and coffee cups full. The (open) bar service was excellent. Unlike previous posters, I did not find the decor to be dated or out... More
