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

Although I have been West Coast based for over 15 years, I grew up in the Farmington Valley and La Trattoria has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember. We recently went here the day after Thanksgiving and despite how busy and exhausted the staff was from being open the holiday day before, the hosts and... More

The bar service was also excellent and reasonably priced with pricing extending to the buffet services as well. Overall, everyone enjoyed and I am looking forward to trying... More

I hadn't been to La Trattoria for 15 years, and I'm not sure why. The one time I was there 15 years ago I had a perfectly enjoyable meal with my wife. But for some reason, we never go although we live close. For something different, we decided to go on 9-12-2014. My wife, son, and myself had a very... More

I have the pleasure of visiting the Canton area on many occasions and when I do I have to stop at the Trattoria. It never disappoints. The calamari is always the freshest and highest quality I have every had. And I never miss their lobster specials.

We've been La trattoria regulars for 27+ years.....family dinners as well as sponsoring functions.....many. Dinners are over the top as far as food, service, ambiance, and cost! "You get more than what you pay for." Family dinners are great...accommodations are made for special needs. ........and picky eaters! I have planned many social events including retirement parties for 100+ as well... More

My husband and I had our wedding reception here and LOVED everything about it. We had a buffet dinner. Mark was very accommodating, food was delicious, a convenient open bar, proved to be a great location with easy parking. Tonight we went back there to celebrate our anniversary and had another great experience! The table side Cesar salad was delicious!... More

Food was delicious, service was excellent and timely. HOWEVER, me and my girlfriend, both 24, we're beneath the average age of the diners by 40 years. The average party there was around 60 if not older. Sad for a place with good food but the ambiance was that of a funeral home.

Before I begin to describe my horrid experience at Brunch this late morning on 7/20/14 I want to give you a background on my culinary/gastronomy knowledge. I am a frequent visitor to various restaurants around the country. I have sampled food from West Coast to East coast –all over the world. Food is something that I am very passionate about... More
