Too bad, this placed is closed. The food was descent and it was convenient to Main St and a few minutes away from the beach.

Whether for dine-in or take-out, the East Main Trattoria consistently delivers great value for the money. It's intriguing combination of classic and creative Italian cuisine makes for a delightful dining adventure. On our most recent visit, the specials included a shrimp and scallops lasagna that was a superb combination of seafood with a Neapolitan touch. My wife ordered grilled salmon,... More

We manage to visit the Trattoria about once a month. They deliver an excellent meal at a fair price. The service can be spotty or maybe the kitchen is just slow because of the large take out business going on. If you are not on a tight time schedule bring your own bottle hang out and have a good meal... More

Located in a strip mall adjacent to the railroad station, Manasquan's East Main Street Trattoria has a knack for creating special entrees that differentiate it from other casual Italian eateries. During warmer weather, dining alfresco is a delightful way to spend an evening. Last visit, I tried a blackened shrimp and scallops lasagna, a dish I had never seen on... More

If you're looking for a causal inexpensive place to have dinner or just pizza, this is the place for you. BYOB....Always consistent....very good prices and the best pizza in the area (and we've tried most of them)

Fresh food, great pizza, excellent specials in a casual setting across from a park where the kids like to play. One stop for food and entertainment.

Now this place is located in a strip mall, so don't worry about getting dressed. And you may have to wait, as you can't reserve a table, but then it's worth the wait. The portions are huge and split able for three. love the chicken Special with asparagus, the artichokes Franchaise are spectacular and their salads wonderful. The menu is... More

This BYOB is a pizza parlor on one side and a small cafe style restaurant on the other. Their red sause is exceptional and their lasagna is the best especially since you get a house salad and great bread with it for $13.

Introduced to 'the Tratorria" by local friends of ours. Well prepared modern and traditional Italian. Squid ink pasta with seafood medley, veal osso buco, scallops with spinach, individual pizzas. I could go on. Our trip to the Jersey shore often ends with a stop at the Tratorria before we head home (or find a hotel for the night). BYOB too,... More
