This place is similar to other "family" Italian shops you find in strip malls. The food is good, but I wouldn't say anything out of the ordinary. The menu is what you normally see for these restaurants (pastas, subs/sandwiches, pizza and meat/fish entrees). However, everything...More

Trattoria has the best pizza I have ever tasted! If you don't like pizza there are plenty more options on the menu. This place is good for parties and groups of people. The staff is always cheerful and welcoming! Our favorite local pizza place!
