This restaurant has all the right ingredients to be a superb eatery, location, excellent produce, old world recipes . . . but it misses the mark on the most important: flavor. The gorgeous pizza disappoints, the dough is crumbly and tasteless, The lasagna is delicious, the noodles are fabulous but the filling is meager and some forkfuls are just layered... More

Stopped here for a quick bite the other night and my wife and I got one entré and a salad to go (picnic for the laundromat). Great portion size and the pasta was FRESH and loaded (spaghetti carbonara - the special)! The Salad (with Pears and Walnuts - YUM!) was huge and they didn't skimp on any ingredients. While waiting... More

We go here for the authentic Napoli style pizza. Thin crust with buffalo milk mozzarella and basil leaves, cooked in a brick oven pizza. Yumm! The calzone is also very good and enough for two people. The lasagna was not really my thing....heavy with lots of ricotta cheese but other diners with us enjoyed it. Loud, buzzy ambience. A fun... More

First, lost our reservations. Even though we emailed and called to confirm. We saw three larger groups get seated, served, and leave before we got our dinner. We even ordered before them. No one checked on us. We had to flag them down constantly. Once the food finally came, they had one item wrong and one of the pasta dishes... More

We walked in and were seated right away. Our waitress was so bubbly it was infectious. Then the food started coming. My one warning is that the portions are HUGE! All three of us could have probably dined on the one calzone with the big salad. I'm kind of glad we didn't though because everything was so delicious.

This place is the closest Italian food that tastes authentic. Mainly because their pizza's and the noodles in their pasta dishes taste homemade. I went there for dinner, but I normally go for lunch. The portions for lunch are very generous and the main dish comes with either salad, vegetables or soup. Their minestrone soup is healthy with lots of... More

I love their pasta and their salads. The pizza is unlike usual pizzas, so make sure you like what they look like before you order one for kids or picky eaters. They don't look usual but my partner LOVES them.

Tramontis' is arguably the best authentic pizza in town. Also Very close to the beach within walking distance.

Tramonti offers a variety of excellent Italian dishes plus an extensive variety of pizza. Try the Polenta with Meat Balls for an outstanding dinner. They also have a variety of Gluten Free and Vegetarian dishes and offer a nice selection of reasonably priced wines and beer. Try the outdoor seating area. You won't be disappointed.
