Friendly Italian Neighborhood Restaurant

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... read 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.

Everything here is fantastic. Imported italian wine. Excellent service. My husband swears they have the best gnocchi ever! I have tried many dishes. Everything is delicious.

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

It is not roman-esque....but it is old school midwest simple Italian. Save room for bakery goods across the street at Corbos(eatting one of their cookies I brought home on plane as I... More

This is one of the better places to get Italian food in the Cleveland area. I would also recommend Carrie Cerino's, which is my favorite Italian restaurant in the area. However, I enjoyed my visit to Tattoria. The wait staff was very nice and upbeat. Our food was very good. I recommend getting the mozzarella sticks; these were almost better... More

My husband ate there many years ago with some friends. So, after a trip to the museum, we went for a late lunch. I wasn't very busy for a Sunday afternoon. We were greeted and sat right away. Fresh bread was brought to our table. I ordered linguine with white clam sauce, they also offered red clam sauce, my husband... More
