We found this restaurant, located a bit hidden in the touristic street rue Vaugueux, thanks to the good reviews at the Tripadvisor site. It was a wonderful experience! I've never eaten such a delicious lasagna before, and my friend was very happy with the veal 'en trois saveurs'. The food was of very high quality, and at a very reasonable price. Very friendly staff, warm atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Could the waitress be more helpful? Only if she carried me to my car afterwards. Simple delicious pasta with some delightful Italian wine, what's not to love. The dish cooked at the table next to us and finished in a massive cheese rind was a sight to behold!

Exceptional quality meal. Great ingredients superbly presented by extremely professional staff . We were truly impressed, this is not just another Caen restaurant, it is special and well worth going out of your way for. We may have struck lucky in getting a table without booking, imagine in high season advance booking would be prudent. A sincere thanks to all at La Trattoria....will return without question.

We were roaming the back streets in Caen and stumbled upon La Trattoria. I asked the family if they felt like Italian food and they agreed. Not expecting anything beyond a family owned restaurant, we entered in and were seated. We were a little before the rush, so we had no idea whether this would be a popular restaurant.

We ordered and then observed the food coming out of the kitchen for other guests. Soon we were amazed at the quality and presentation of this restaurant. One person ordered the chicken Alfredo -- or something of the sort. I had considered that option, but it fed more than one, so I passed. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

At another table the chef came out with a rolling table and an empty cheese rhine of parmesan. He added some alcohol to the rhine and started scraping off the cheese on the sides to make a cheese sauce right in front of the diners. He then added cream, mushrooms and chicken. Stirring as he went and using the cheese off the sides of the rhine. I was dying. I wanted that dish so bad!!! He then added noodles and mixed it all together. Then he scooped up each plate of the four people at the table. Man!!! I could have had that dish.

As it was, I had another pasta dish that was outstanding. The other dishes served at our table were absolutely outstanding. The desert that we had was also incredible.

This one restaurant was worth our entire stay in Caen. It was near the main castle walls and there is good public parking in the evening at the chateau. The restaurant is easy to find and within walking distance for those under 60 years.

I cannot say enough about how great this restaurant was and we have eaten at a lot of restaurants.
