Delish Italian food!

Came here for a birthday dinner with my family. This restaurant has a great view of the mountains right across the street. Very cozy inside, rustic italian farm house feel. Side salads come with every meal, the caesar salads are green lettuce with a bit of cheese and creamy dressing, while the... read more

This place would shut down in two months, probably fit a health code violation. If you bring me lamb chops later than my party's meals and you tell me you over cooked the first attempt and had to redo, I admire you. If I then cut into them to find frozen, purple flesh, you have fallen further than if you... More

I have eaten at the bar, talking with Tony or Jean Carlos and felt like family. They cook the way their Mother and Grandmother taught them and it shows. Simple, authentic, local ingredients. They know how to cook fish which is constantly excellent. Love the place.

My companion was not in the mood for a heavy Italian meal, so she ordered the escargot appetizer and the “winter salad.” Her salad was far superior to mine, with roasted beets, organic greens, and Gorgonzola crumbs, and a sesame/balsamic dressing. My dinner salad was just a pile of green lettuce--no tomatoes, no onions, nothing else, not even an Italian... More

We always enjoy Trattoria. The only complaint is the lamb dish is a bit lean and a bit pricey. But the house wine is good, as is their typical Italian fare. The service was better than last time. More attentive. Perhaps because they weren't as crowded

It was good for Vermont. I wouldn't say it was out of this world though. As a Ny'er I have a higher bar set for Italian. Marinara sauce was good, not great. My husband got veal which he very much enjoyed. My inlaws got lamb chop that they liked. Brownie ice cream sandwich dessert was delish.

Having owners always present, helps maintain a great restaurant. The place has not really changed much over the many years we have visited. The menu is consistently good and moderately priced. All entrees come with a small sized caesar salad. I have eaten many things here and have never been disappointed. Most recently I had the shrimp with angel hair.... More

The welcoming owners make every stranger feel immediately at home. It's the warmth and fun atmosphere above all, that has made this restaurant a favorite for locals and tourists for more than 25 years. You can always count on a good meal at a reasonable price. If you're a tourist dining alone, sit at the bar and you will become... More

My wife grew up in Naples, and the Bronx, so my family and I are very familiar with Italian food. The food here is good. We had an eggplant appetizer that was outstanding. The bruschetta was just ok, not as good as my mother in law used to make. The Caesar salad was very good, and the dressing seemed to... More
