I definitely recommend a visit to Trattoria La Vigna if your visiting Galveston. The restaurant has a unique feel to it. It's small and laid back but still feels slightly classy. Service was excellent and the food was even better. I went with the spaghetti alla contadina and my wife had tagliatelle alla bolognese. Both meals came with salads to... More

I surprised him. He was so impressed with we finally found authentic Italian food on the island! We live on the island frequent all the restaurants regularly. When you feel like Italian this is the place. No pizza there! Pasta breads desserts everything made from scratch by an Italian lady from Italy! How cool is that. Enjoy! Chao!

This place (for it's location) is terrific. I don't think it would make it in NYC, SFO or PDX but for Galveston it is about as good as it gets. Their pasta dishes are legit, the atmosphere is very good and the service is excellent. If I found myself on Galveston Island again (honestly not a huge fan of the... More

We love visiting this trattoria whenever we are in Galveston. The owner/chef is in the kitchen making everything from the bread, pasta, sauces and desserts from scratch. The quality of food you get is exceptional. The wine is reasonably priced not marked up 4x's like most restaurants. A visit to the trattoria is like visiting a local family restaurant with... More

This is the second visit to this amazing restaurant. This time it was for lunch. The menu is limited at lunch but still has a very good variety of dishes. And it's not crowded during the week. WARNING: if you are in a hurry, go somewhere else...this is REAL ITALIAN FOOD which takes time to cook and savor! The breads... More
