We ate here again last night, 11/9/2013... and it was outstanding!!! a truly perfect experience... this place has it all; ambience, friendly people, and above all else, a kitchen staff that really knows how to cook!!! It seems obvious to us, the big difference between this restaurant and others in the area is the "quality & freshness" of their ingredients... My wife & i shared an appetizer of calamari ($8.95). It was a very nice sized plate, half sliced tentacles and half baby squids... they were fresh, hot and wonderful!!! Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, and she brought a basket of hot, freshly baked rolls to the table with a small plate of olive oil garnished with freshly diced garlic and whole fresh basil leaves... a really nice touch... the fresh herbs really made those rolls pop!!! we ordered a bottle of Cecchi Chianti Classico from their new wine list... at $34, a really great price for a "classico" of this stature. They really did a nice job with their new wine list... This was their one weak point when they first opened last year, but now they've really knocked it out of the park!!!

My wife had the Chicken Francese ($14.95) , it's her very favorite dish, and she claims it's the best you can find short of of philly or nyc... I had their NY Strip steak ($21.95)... it was a huge 1.1/4 inch thick slab of angus steak, lightly drizzled in a perfectly seasoned and rich demi-glaze sauce nicely layered with sautéed mushrooms... it was spectacular!!! they served it with an order of thickly cut and obviously house-made herbed steak fries and a side of lightly sautéed veggies; zucchini, green beans, peppers, onions, broccoli, etc...

The portions were huge, and we were definitely taking home half our meals, but we decided to share a piece of their lemon-marscapone cake... drizzled with a spritz of lemon syrup and a dollop of freshly whipped cream, it was outstanding... fresh, light, and tart with just a touch of sweetness... wow, this was the perfect end to a perfect meal!!!

I don't know how they do it, but this place just keeps getting better!!! do your tastebuds a favor and check it out for yourself... we've lived in the area for 22 years, and this is, without a doubt, not just the best "Italian" restaurant in the area, but The Best Restaurant in the area period... Fine dining in a casual elegant Pocono atmosphere with incredible value!!! This is much better then "anything" you'll find in downtown Jim Thorpe... And judging from the packed house, lively conversation & smiling faces, a lot of others must agree!!! We'll definitely go back!!! Thanks for a great meal and a wonderful evening guys!!!

My husband I made reservations for our anniversary. We looked on Trip Advisor at the reviews for all the restaurants in Jim Thorpe and chose Trattoria 903. So glad we did!! Food was fresh, portions were large and price was lower than we expected for the quality! The owner/chef Hassan greets every table and makes sure you are satisfied. The waitress Marianne was very friendly and attentive. We are first timers to Jim Thorpe and can't wait to go back to the area and definitely visit Trattoria 903 again!!

My wife & I both think this is the nicest restaurant in Jim Thorpe. After going on a train ride on a Sunday in Jim Thorpe in October 2013, we decided to have Italian food at Trattoria 903. I’m so glad we did. The restaurant was clean, the portions were good and the prices were fair. But most of all, the staff was so friendly. The owner came around to each & every table to make sure everything was ok. He actually sat and chatted with us on how he prepares some of the seafood dishes. It was a great experience to just sit, relax and have a great meal. We can’t wait to go back.
