“Great Lunch Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

I was visiting on business and walking around downtown to find something interesting for lunch. I finally ran across this place and it was the only place with a crowd which usually means good food. I had a excellent salad with chicken, peas and tortellini.

“Bellisimo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I don't know how they did it but they transformed simple eggs & bacon into something delicious. My Italian sweetie loved the espresso- he is hard to please. Biscuit with eggs and cheese also delicious.
Great prices too.

“Amazing Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

There is very few restaurants that are as consistent and amazing as Trattoria. I strongly recommend the farm egg, cherry scone and a 1/2 order of French toast with coffee. I have been at least 20 times and I love this place. There is always a line, no worries, it moves fast and you will be glad you waited.

“Good lunch spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

This is a busy little lunch spot. Try the special, which is salad and 2 slices of pizza. There are a few tables on the sidewalk, which is nice if it's a pretty day. It's a small place, so go early if you have several people in your party.
