“As Close as You Can Get to Italy”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

I rarely give a restaurant 4 stars. 5 is reserved for the very best in the US to which I've only been to 5. This food is as close to you can get to Italian food in Italy as you can get in most of south Florida. It is owned by the same people who own the famous Anthony's of Mulberry street in downtown Manhattan.

This place is absolutely PACKED on season and off. The bar scene is very trendy. The food is a bit expensive so this is a place to watch the folks who think they are very special interact.

When the weather is nice you can sit outside and watch the people go by on famous Atlantic Avenue. Inside and out, the table are a bit tightly spaced. If you can get a booth, go for it.

The pasta is special, the sauce is to die for, the meat dishes are all extremely good and the service is friendly and not too pushy.

This is the italian restaurant we will normally pick IF YOU CAN GET A RESERVATION. The maitre D, will normally look down his nose at you with a reservation. Without one, he will be a truly rude, ugly human.

If you are a young, beautiful, skimpily-dressed couple of women, you will probably get in whenever.

This food is just plain wonderful. Don't miss this place. Book in advance for a Friday or Saturday. They are NOT on Open Table.

“Oh my!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Besides being in one of South Florida's most 'jumping' area, Delray Beach, this is clearly one of the best restaurants around. Will it be crowded for dinner? You bet. Will it be noisy? You bet. Is it pricey? You bet.

Will you eat as never before? Possibly, because this is one of the best there is. We were taken there by very 'fussy' people and it was obvious the waiters and Manger knew them. That being said, I am sure the fantastic tasting food they served was not because of them. Tramonti was packed with people that obviously know the food is great. The salads we had were gigantic and while I had a simple mixed green salad, it was tender and just the right amount of dressing. That was followed by Stuff Zucchini flowers that were great. I ordered the Fettuccine Bolognese and it was clearly the best I have ever eaten. I sampled my friend's Pasta with Vodka sauce because of words about it I heard before. Again, the best I have ever had-so far. Service was very good and I suspect that lunch at Tramonti might offer a slightly less crowded affair. The chef/s know what good food is and how to prepare it. Delray Beach is an in place and the main street, Atlantic Avenue, is exciting fun to experience. If you are passing through that area, or near it, make reservations for a wonderful meal.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

It was worth the wait. half hour after our reservation but obviously the most popular place in town. I haven't seen someone slip the maitre d money for a table in years but it is still alive at Tramonti. The staff are unbelievably good working in a very tight space. The goat cheese and beet salad was excellent and the grilled swordfish was tasty and well presented. The servings were a good size rather then the usual American habit of overloading. Definitely worth the wait and a return visit.

“Great food but a bit arrogant”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

8:30 reservation not seated till 9 Pm. Very crowded. Food was great. Veal Chop excellent. Lobster excellent. However they claim "market price" was $95. We eat lobster a lot that is the highest market price i've come across. If you can deal with very "scene-y" well worth the visit.
