Great service-- very friendly from the arrival to the exit-- only problem was that we sat adjacent to three young families and the husbands had to keep trying to out vocalize each other so the sound was moderately loud at times.

We had a good meal there was some confusion in either service or kitchen. But the manager made it all good in the end. Food was very good. We will give it another shot sometime.

Was really good - and can't complain with their tratt tuesday special but my truffled spaghetti was so bland it honestly didnt taste like much more than the noodle itself. quite a disappointment considering how much i was craving it. If it was 23$ i would have sent it back but for $13 i just bit it in the nose.. will think twice about visiting on tratt tuesday again

Mother, daughter andI went for mother's day brunch. Excellent 'mocktails'! I had the classic Benny which was described as having prosciutto but came with shaved ham. Poached eggs were perfect but English muffin was burnt and could not be cut. I asked for no potatoes and extra greens.... basic but fresh, nothing fancy. My daughter had the Benny as well substituting the (proscuitto) with avocado to make it vegetarian. Server and kitchen were most obliging. My Mom had the waffles which were described as coming with blueberries but came with blackberries. Had to ask for syrup and whip cream ...The upstairs patio was perfect on this sunny day and our server made our time most enjoyable. Room for improvement: food and the hostesses (training??) I will give them another try!

Food came out cold or half frozen. They quickly brought us new dishes... And one dish still came out half frozen (rissoto balls). It was obvious it was made fresh at all. If it wasn't for the great server, this restaurant would have had worse reviews.

I had a salad that I'm pretty certain came with no dressing so it was dry - I did ask for dressing and it came or the salad would have been really boring. I believe it was to have "soprasetta" and it had none. The salad was ok but for the price, I think it could have came with more than 2 tiny pieces of bread for 2 people. Server was excellent and friendly. Decor was very nice.

I had been wanting to try out Trattoria since it opened and honestly, I was disappointed. We were seated downstairs initially. I found the fans extremely noisy creating almost a wind-tunnel effect so we asked to be moved to the rooftop seating which was definitely superior in terms of noise and ambience. It was quite lovely up there. It was my birthday and that information had been included in the reservation but there was no recognition of it at the restaurant, no special celebration, not even a spoken happy birthday. The menu has a nice selection but apparently was being changed over and so they didn't have a number of the dishes that were included on it. I ordered mussels but they had to substitute clams. My son ordered a pizza but they were out of the kind of sausage that was on the menu. The food was nicely presented and the flavours were good. The prices were fairly reasonable. I would probably return to give it another try ... Perhaps they were having a bad day .....

Our meals were delicious but the not very at all. I really should have sent it back, but was hungry so just ate fast. It would have been nice to have some dinner rolls of some kind.

A friend and I celebrated both of our birthdays here the other night. The squash pizza was fabulous. The server mentioned we would get a free dessert, but it never materialized and then we had to leave as going to a play. Overall it was an excellent evening.

Didn’t appreciate the fact that they could not brew a fresh pot of coffee for us when requested. They did offer americani instead but that was not we wanted. It was about 9:30 pm on. Saturday night!!

We went on Tuesday which is the discount pasta night, so it was very busy. But we were seated and not attended to by an server for at least 10 minutes. The table that came after us was. We finally got served and ordered our food. I received the wrong type of wine and had to send it back. I've had the calamari at Italian Kitchen twice and thought it was amazing. But we got calamari, and that was the worst we've ever had. We sent it back. The manager ( I believe he was the manager) was super nice and helpful, he took the time to talk to us and told us we would have a sweet treat at the end. It made things better finally. We got out meals and they were good, but I had meatballs with mine and they were not as good as I remembered. We finished up and the manager brought us the dessert, which was delicious. He did a really good job turning things around and I wasn't going to right a review... but then I got sick from the food, likely the meat balls. So overall it was a very dissatisfying experience other than the lovely manager who tried to make it right for us. After this bad experience and getting sick, we don't plan to ever return to this restaurant.

At 7:30 on a Sunday evening we were seated immediately and had a choice of several tables. Our server was attentive, took our order when we were ready and delivered the food a short time later. It arrived hot and was delicious and done well. I had Short Rib Pappardelle while my wife had Spaghetti Carbonara. The portions were large and we took some home for another meal. We asked the manager some questions about the name and what Trattoria means and were given several minutes of his time chatting about the place and the food. There was a large group of about 14 or so diners that was seated when we arrived and were still there when we left. A young family beside us had a good time as well with children well fed and falling asleep as they left. We were told that we could stay on and enjoy the table as long as we wanted. All in all - a great evening that we will come back again for. There are lots of pastas and salads left to try!

Service and wine selection was wine selection was good. Appetizer was too heavily breaded for my liking. Main course veal was tough and dry. Restaurant did an excellent job of rectifying the meals and get full marks for the service they provided. Overall a good experience and I would return.

came here for dineout 2018. The mussles and clam appetizer was unexpectedly bigger portion, mussles were great, very fresh. The braised pork cheek was good, except i didn't like the parmesan polenta, it was my first time trying polenta actually. Lingcod was also good. Tiramisu was abit wet at the bottom but the taste was good. Portion was filling, overall a satisfactory dinner for $30

The truffled spaghetti is the best item on the menu and the reason why we decided to dine here.

My wife decided to order the risotto and found it so so. I later tasted the risotto at the end of the meal and it was undercooked and hard to the bite. I am not sure why she did not say something earlier. Anyways, the setvice was excellent and remeber to order the pasta if you visit. It's fantastic

It was extremely cold in the restaurant. Even though we had a reservation, we were given a tiny table by the door, and beside a window, which only added to the cold. We shared 2 pizzas and barely had the room to keep them on the table. Awkward! The caprese salad was nice, and the pizzas were good, but the anchovies on the pizza tasted old and off, which was hard to get through. We didn't finish the one pizza and did not want to take it home. Service was good and we were even offered free sangria, which we had to decline, as we do not drink alcohol.

Had a really good experience there on my birthday. I felt as soon as we walked through the door we had the staffs attention as their customer focus. Excellent and not over the top service. Polite, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Food excellent and good value for money. Especially on a Wednesday for 1/2 price wine. Good spot for a special occasion or date night.

Our server was a delight. However, the noise level was intolerable. Lousy acoustics.
A nearby table had a couple of adults and the children with them ran around shrieking. They were of an age, 5-10?, who should have been able to sit through an entire meal properly. I blame the parents .......never taught them to behave.
My pasta was perfectly prepared, but the short rib sauce itself had only two shreds of meat.
