Great for couples

We went with friends for the early bird menu but although there's a lot to choose from we ended up ordering from the regular menu. most meals come with a starch and veg. The chopped sirloin is a favorite of my husband, but I prefer one of their fish offerings. Our friend ordered chicken... read more

Excellent meals and fine service! One of our favorite places to eat. Early bird specials are a great bargain. Veal Masala is my favorite! Love just about every dish. Good service. Not rushed so plan on spending time here. A little pricey.

To our delight, our niece, booked this restaurant for a family gathering recently. When we walked in we just knew it would be a great experience and meal. We were greeted right away and told the hostess that we were early for our reservation. She asked us to wait for a moment so she could check on our table and... More

My wife and I had dinner recently at La Trattoria with some friends while we were visiting in the area. We both agree that Mark and his staff do a great job of providing excellent service and great food. The menu choices are plentiful and reflect a Northern Italian approach. We always have the Caesar salad prepared table side --... More

7 of us went for lunch at LaTrott. We were the only people in the restaurant. The server came to the table and brought us beverages then went about her business folding napkins and picking up. She has to be called to take our order. We were the ONLY people there! Lunch arrive eventually, it was a long wait considering.... More

The title of my review sums it up. The quality is not what it used to be for the money. They might want to lower their prices to reflect quality or raise their quality to reflect their prices. Right now it's off balance. There are many better values in Canton.

Once or twice a month, I get a craving for La Trattoria's great food. If you like table-side Caeser salad or Steak Diane, you are going to love this place, too. Oh yeah, the owners and staff are very friendly, too. A fixture in town that I hope sticks around for many more years!

How do you screw up a Lobster Twice? and when your well drink cocktail costs more than most entrees and two cost more than every entree including twin baked stuffed lobsters you got problems. this place shuts down right after Xmas rush.

We've been long time guests - many years - didn't want to believe the reviews....unfortunately this gem is now a complete disaster... We used to love coming here...you could "smell" the downward slide as we walked in...,felt like an old peoples home - and we are senior citizens! Don't waste your time / a terrible evening

I was promised by the owner he would call and we could chat about my family's awful dinner at his restaurant. He never called. I'm disappointed, we paid the full bill, we tipped our waitres well. We were nothing but nice and understanding and we were treated nasty by the staff and the owner. It's sad we had high hopes... More
