Delicious Italian food made with fresh ingredients on a daily basis. I had the Gnocci with Gorgonzola and pears - amazing!. My son loves Lasagne and he has eaten Lasagne on different occasions and he says this is the best Lasagne! My husband had the pork dish which he just loved. The dessert was just perfect. We tried the cheesecake and ice cream layer cake which had strawberry sorbet, dark chocolate ice cream and a layer with pieces of Belgium chocolate. Thanks for a great evening!

It's been a pleasure have a dinner in this lovely restaurant.
It's been like to be in a friends' home in Italy.
Good service, good wine ( with a great choice), good food (an amazing gelato is the perfect desert) and a relaxed atmosphere made my stay perfect.
If you want to try the experience "dinner with italian family" this is your place..

Slow service, wrong order and ordinary food ... waiter blamed kitchen, front desk blames waiter. Bottom line was a disappointed host.

Dear Madame,
thanks for having devoted your time to write the review on our Trattoria.
Let me now, with this message, join my wife and my son on apologizing for the mistake we made in the kitchen, serving one "tagliatelle bolognese", instead of one "cotoletta bolognese".
I misunderstood the order.
As you noticed, we immediately tried to catch up on the mistake, having the cotoletta prepared and served in no delay.
What makes me a bit sad, is the fact that neither the tagliatelle, nore the cotoletta met your taste. Hope you will accept our apologize, with our best regards.
Corrado and the family

Greeted on arrival as though we were long time friends set the warm and friendly atmosphere one would expect from a little restaurant in Italy.

The food was great, could not have asked for anything more. The Italian wine list is exhaustive and compliments the authentic Italian feel exceptionally well.

We will definitely return!

Dear Sir,
we really appreciate your comments on our little Trattoria.
You fully catched the spirit that is leading our activity.
We planned la Trattoria as an extension of our house, where hospitality, homemade food, and good Italian wines must always be available for our guests.
Hope to have the opportunity to host you again.
Best regards,
Corrado
