Just like its Italian namesake, Trattoria is a family-run establishment that steers away from both fast-food pizza chains & high-end gourmet pizzas to provide its customers a relaxed & uncontrived atmosphere. The elderly couple who run the place are very cordial & always ready with recommendations for those confused with the choices on offer.The menu is largely Italian, with bits of Chinese, Continental & Indian cuisine thrown into the mix.
The centrepiece of the restaurant is a large round wood-fired pizza oven.The dough, cheese, sauces & marinades are made in-house from scratch! The pizza is pretty good with fresh, customized ingredients atop a wonderfully thin crust and an extremely liberal sprinkling of cheese. However, it’s the novelty of having your pizza made in front of you that makes Trattoria worth a visit.
Apart from the pizza, popular dishes include the Bassa Fish & Prawns, Steamed Fish Fillet and the Chicken & Mushroom Pasta cooked to your specifications.
For those with a sweet tooth, the light, decadent Tiramisu made with home-made mascarpone cheese & the heavenly Panna Cotta are a must-have! In fact, it's likely that the authentic desserts are what will keep you coming back to Trattoria.
The downside is the long wait till your food arrives.So if you have class in an hour, we wouldn’t recommend dropping in here for a bite.
To our palates accustomed to the Indian cuisine, Trattoria is a breath of fresh air. Contemporary cravings? - don’t give this place a miss!
