After reading recent Tripadvisor reviews on this establishment I was a bit disappointed in our meal. We dined with a party of 7. Two people had the rid eye and said it was excellent. I had the rigatoni with sausage and asked for extra garlic....There was no sausage visible or garlic for that mater when the meal arrived. One person had the meatball. It was very good. The artichoke salads were bitter and had little taste. The fluke was very good. One person ordered scallops and they were ok. It was a god meal but not a memorable one. The service was very good but I don't believe I would go back.More

Love Trama! I could come here just for the mussels - the best ever! Eggplant parm, rigatoni done perfectly. Artichoke salad was outstanding. Top notch service and excellent wine list. One of the best!

Dined here several times this summer when they blocked off the street. Also ordered takeout to get our favorite pastas. A little expensive for pasta but worth it. We really like the artichoke salad. Favorite dishes are the cacao e peppe, rigatoni and carbonara. Definitely...not your ordinary pasta.More

We are regulars at Trama. The food is consistently excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful. They understand and accommodate any dietary needs we have. I highly recommend Trama.

We were planning to go to Trama’s at One Willow but they’re not opening until Thursday so we decided to go to Trama’s Trattoria. We’re so happy we did. The food was SUPERB! There were four of us and we started with the baby artichoke,...Caprese and Caesar salads - both excellent. We enjoyed them very much. We’re so glad we shared them as they were generous portions. We then had the best Veal Parmigiana EVER (two servings which came with perfectly al dente spaghetti with marinara), fresh Organic Salmon, and a tender, juicy Chicken breast served over a creamy polenta. The service was also outstanding. We were too full to order dessert, (the Italian bread is too good) but the wines we had with our dinner ( Montepulciano and Pinot Noir) were reasonably priced and went great with our entrees. Can’t wait to go back!More

very nice restaurant started off with the calamari very good entrees i had the bolognese very well prepared and just the right amount my wife tried the fettucinne with a side of the meatball again nicely prpepared and meatball was a very big portion and...the sauce you could taste that everything was fresh and homemade the ricotta cream was a nice addition only complaint if you go in the winter and sit near the front it gets coldMore

...and the food and atmosphere take you to a back street trattoria in Tuscany. Farm to table food, flavors that make you remember the dish in exacting detail the next day and incredible attentive service. Put Trama on your Christmas list!

Friends of ours had recommended this restaurant - so we went with them on Sat. night. Glad we had made a reservation - it was crowded. The wine we ordered was good - at $13 a glass. The women had the scallops w/butternut squash risotto...- it was excellent. The men had the branzino & fluke which was also delicious! Hubby had the panna cotta for dessert that was out of this world!! We all enjoyed our meals, however, it was a bit pricey.More

The Italian bread was burned leaving a burnt, bitter taste in your mouth before getting the main dish. This interfered with our satisfaction with the meal as a whole. They offer sharing a plate for $5 which is a good feature. We had shrimp scampi....It was okay. Nothing to write home about. We also had the calamari. Ditto. I'd advise a different selection of restaurants if you are in the area.More
