We visited La Trattoria for dinner and enjoyed an delicious, authentic Italian meal, with excellent Italian wine. The Italian owners couldn't have been more welcoming or more wonderful hosts. All the staff were delightful and added to our enjoyment of the evening.

As Stanford is a very laid back and smal town, way of the beaten track, one does not expect such a good Italian restaurant. It does not have a 5 page menu, but it does have very authentic good Italian family food. Don't let the...More
