Visited on recommendation of a friend. Had gone years before and was not impressed and never went back. Best part of our experence was the pleasant outside seating and excellent food. My filet was delicious despite being medium rather than medium rare ordered. The shrimp scampi side was generous abet little over cooked. Meal accompanied by delicious salad with balsamic... More

First time at La Trattoria and overall we had Good Food and Good service. The owners or Managers were making their rounds to the tables and stopped and chatted with the regulars. On the positive side, on the south side of the restaurant they do have a really nice outdoor dining area which is where we had our dinner. We... More

Not being from Indiana, we were looking for a decent Italian restaurant and this one was recommended on "another" review web site when my daughter did a quick search. So we took a chance. We liked it, but can't say it was great or fantastic. It's difficult to please an New England Italian looking for Italian food in the Midwest!... More

Very good food, especially the steaks. Cozy setting. Standard Italian food and generous servings. Restaurant had a fire a few years ago and rebuilt in same location. Located in "Old Town" Greenwood where many businesses in old houses. Always a good crowd.

I love most everything about this restaurant. Location is away from bustle of the mall and in a quaint downtown Greenwood area. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine. Food is always excellent and menu varied. My only complaint is that at times the service is slow. Not sure whether it is the particular waiter or an... More

Been here a few times in the past. It has a reputation for the south sides best steaks. Being a vegetarian, I can't confirm. Anyway, lots of good pasta. I had spaghetti with a terrific garlic sauce. My wife had a filet, cooked to perfection and delicious. Our dining companions had spaghetti, one with meatballs and the other carbonara. Very... More

We had reservations for 4 couples. Two of us had been there and bragged about the quality of the food so we thought we would try for a birthday celebration on a Wednesday night. While the food was excellent, the service was somewhat slow but not an issue to us. The owner had a table of 8 of his own(employees... More

I stumbled across this gem while I was in town for business. Six of us were looking for an Italian restaurant and are so glad we didn't end up going with a chain restaurant. This place is in an old house and is quite charming. At first I was worried when I looked at the menu and saw all the... More

My friend goes here often, says best steak he has ever eaten? I usually get the Italian but this time I also got the steak and it was good. I think they have an idenity crisis, not sure if they are really Italian food or Steak house? Prices are high, food is prepared when ordered so plan on hanging around... More
