Fresh Italian Food

It's been a while since I last dined here and I'm ready for a return visit. A wonderful atmosphere, good service and the food is very tasty and plentiful. It's great to break away from the chain Italian restaurants. The food is fresh, and not a mass produced, tired, predictable recipe. It's a... read more

We enjoyed a summer date night on the patio. We had filet (phenomenal) that compared to Ruth's Chris or Morton's and the combo ravioli (chose spinach and mushroom options) with the best vodka sauce. Nice kick of spice too. We enjoyed focaccia and canolli in addition to some wine. Our server was young, but he was attentive and very eager... More

Our family have been going to La Trattoria for several years. We thoroughly enjoy the place and the food is very good. We always get the Filet and it can't be beat. We have eaten steak at most of the Indy steak places, Ruth Chris, St. Elmo's, etc., and La Trattoria's filet is way better. Ignore the reviews that lament... More

My wife and I went there for an anniversary dinner armed with a $100 gift certificate. When I called, I was told they don't take reservations. When I said we were coming for our 35th wedding anniversary and asked whether anything special was available, The hostess said "I don't know what you mean", and mentioned I was free to bring...

One of the best restaurants I have ever visited! We are so lucky to live close to this amazing gem. Best filets I have ever eaten, wonderful Italian (manicotti is fabulous), and tomato salad (when in season) is to die for! We go there frequently and for every special occasion. We've introduced many of our friends to La T, and... More

We visited this restaurant last night for dinner. It was wonderful. The food was prepared properly and taste great. The service was good as well. We had heard good things about this restruants from friends and we were not disappointed. We look forward to another visit.

My mom has never been, so I thought I'd give her a special treat for Mother's Day. This place has the best good and atmosphere around - Greenwood, Indianapolis or elsewhere. Best steak you will ever have, and don't pass on the bread.

The food is very good, but it's expensive. Be prepared to spend about $20 on chicken alfredo by itself, and another $6 on bread.

If you like good Italian food in a quaint atmosphere, then you will like La Trattoria. We try to go there at least once a month and try something different. Not only do they excel in Italian food, their steaks are excellent! Still, one of my favorite dishes is the Chicken Parmagian with a side of pasta. You can't go... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner for our anniversary. We chose to eat outside and it was lovely. We started with the cheese stuffed portebella mushroom it was very rich but tasty. We each had a dinner salad with ranch dressing and we shared the combo plate with manicotti, lasagna and fettuccine alfredo. Everything was great.
