A wonderful, relatively small Italian eatery. The staff was outstanding, the service was wonderful and the food was great. We had 3 different pasta dishes which are prepared and served with great skill. I could not have been happier with my experience.

I have never been disappointed by La Traviata. The service is always excellent. The food is consistently wonderful and it price is right. There are other options in the area. However, they are overpriced for the value in my opinion. It does get crowded at...More
