My husband and met another couple at the bar on a Thursday evening and enjoyed our cocktails and a lovely dinner at the bar. Sole Francaise and Eggplant Parmesan were excellent. The nice surprise was the early evening entertainment that was enjoyed by all the senior citizen patrons who were enjoying an early dinner.

La Trattoria has been around for a long time; and in this day and age, that's a good thing because only the good survive in this business. The owners are first and second generation Italian, and it shows in their food and service. They combine traditional dishes with traditional service, such as table-side preparation of a marvelous Caesar salad. The... More

We visited on a late Sunday afternoon. It wasn't very crowded but there were a number of other diners and more arrived as the afternoon went on. Our waitress was very attentive, knowledgeable, and cordial. We ordered the Caesar salad for two, prepared at tableside (as it turned out, personally by the owner, Mark, a very cordial guy, himself). For... More

Four of us had Sunday lunch at La Trattoria today. A first experience here for two of us and two that had dined here years ago. We were not disappointed. Our waitress was knowledgeable, pleasant, and very willing to do anything we asked of her (mostly just did all without asking actually) She brought us perfectly warmed bread with a... More

Our daughter (adult) wanted lobster for her birthday dinner. This was one of only a few nearby restaurants offering lobster dinners, so we took her there. Our daughter and I started with the French onion soup. It wasn't overly salty, but not much better than average. The dinner special included a salad and roasted potatoes. There's not much that can...

Didn't have a single plate that was clean. You can even see drops of oil on some. Lost appetite for the brunch right after. Asked a waiter for clean plates and he came back with a less oily one.
