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

This is a great place to unwind. Food is exceptional, service is impeccable. a relaxing evening. No place else makes a Cesar Salad this perfect. Steak Diane and Penne ala Vodka are our favorites, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Consistently great! our go-to place after a hard day.

My wife and I decided to go to LaTrottoria for lunch in Canton since we hadn't been there in several years since we now live about 35 miles away. We always enjoyed great meals there in the past. Unfortunately this trip was different. We both started with a salad, she had the Caesar and I had the spinach salad. Both... More

It was a horrible experience. We waited 15 mins to get bread and water, when the waitress realized we didn't have any water or bread she asked the bus boy and he said "No, I'm busy", so disrespectful to speak to someone that way, and in front of customers. She was apologetic, but the bad service continued. No one was... More

How do you review an old friend. A restaurant that you have gone to for decades. For the Gerber Family this is perhaps our most visited and most beloved restaurant. Whether Its Andy leaving the Bar to make Dad Steak Tartar or the wonderfully prepared Tableside Steak Dianna or Cesar Salad, the most consistent high quality Veal Parmagianna this is... More
