Took the in-laws out for some Italian and selected this place based on recommendation. We have been to a few places in Little Italy but hadn't tried here. We made reservations for a Saturday night and it did seem busy. The main dining room was full, you had to squeeze to get around. It was also quite noisy. We were... More

Booked an early dinner for four. We had the fried floured calamari rings along with house bread for a pre-dinner appetizer. The calamari was good, although a bit more seasoning would have made it excellent. The vodka Martini was excellent -- they did not skimp on the vodka, serving it in a 5 oz. Martini glass filled to the brim.... More

Great food and great service. Loved the atmosphere and smooth jazz in the background. Spoke with the Owner and discovered that the eggplant recipe is her grandmothers. Delicious!

It's always nice to eat local and "restaurant chain free". We always like the antipasti plate. Eggplant Parmesan and meatballs. And we don't leave without a few jars of sauce.

We had a good experience here this week before going to Severance. They were timely and the service was actually very good. The food was good, not absolutely fabulous but good. The portions were huge and very satisfying. The marinara sauce I really liked. I had chicken parmesan, the chicken was nice and thin and crusty and well spiced. My... More

My meal at Trattoria was delicious and plentiful. It is an authentic Italian restaurant with great prices and service. I have not eaten at any other restaurants in Little Italy in Cleveland, but can definitely recommend this place.

Service was bad, food was worse, don't bother, really. We were with a group of 10 and there were stacks of uncleared plates, never got refills on our drinks. They added 20% (which is fine) because of the size of our group, but our service was very sub par. The food was terrible, I had the gnocci and it was... More
