Another great meal at Trama's! My husband and I come here every year on our anniversary. The food is excellent and the service is always incredibly hospitable. Every dish we've tried has been incredible. This visit we shared the mussels to start. The sauce was so good my husband even asked if they sold it to go! They had a nice outdoor seating setup. All staff wore masks and the tables were well spaced out. We'll be back as soon as we can and 100% recommend Trama's to anyone looking for a top notch dinner with impeccable service.

We were at Trama with another couple...friends Saturday night out! So... overall, we had a great time and the food is truly fabulous. A couple of observations...

- Umbrellas by the tables would be a good idea. We were there around 6pm and the sun was in the eyes of whoever sat facing West.

- There were other tables that were shaded, but we could not request a different table. Their computer assigns the table and no one can change it.

The menu is deliberately small, thereby keeping each dish consistently delicious. The place is like a neighborhood bistro, very stylish but simple. Great bar where one can eat or just have a drink. The more often one goes to Trama, one begins to recognize the same people.
Which means patrons keep returning.

Our visit to Trama's Trattoria was pretty good. They do have excellent food and a very good waitstaff. The only setback was the food portion. I ordered the delicious bronzino, which consisted of two filets over broccolini, sundried tomatoes and pesto oil. Not sure where the broccolini and sundried tomatoes were. So this affected the rating. Disapponted as this never happened before; we have visited this restaurant several times.

This will not deter us from visiting again but when you are charging $32.00 for an entree that entree should reflect that price. After all strings of broccolini and snippets of sun dried tomatoes took away from the beautifully prepared bronzino, and made you forget why you went there in the first place.

Food and service was great,!!! We were seated outside of course, due to the social distancing. Only NEXT time when I reserve a table, I need to ask to be under an awning or umbrella. I know its difficult, but I am hoping that they will put out some umbrellas for shade. Still love the place!!

This was our first visit to Trama’s. Due to COVID-19 outdoor seating is a must. Unfortunately seating was
A bit iffy. Limited coverage. If it had rained we would have been soaked. For the prices charged it would
Have been nice to have a few umbrellas. It was very hot. Our server was perfect and service was quick.
As for the food, my wife’s chicken parm was overcooked, my rigatoni was a little to spicy but was still a
Good dinner, a little less spice and it would have been great. My daughter had clams with pasta and she
Liked it. I was a little surprised that a Italian restaurant didn’t have a true meat sauce for the pasta. Not
Sure It would be my first choice, but I would try it again.

My girlfriend and I visited the restaurant this past saturday night (7/25) for a 9:30 reservation. It's obvious the restaurant was/is doing it's best to maintain during covid pandemic, however, it was a regrettable dinner. The menu is shortened and the restaurant was out of Calamari, Chicken Parm and other apps/entrees.

Visit early in the day, call ahead to confirm menu options, or save the trip for when things return to normal hopefully soon.

We are sorry about what you experienced last Saturday evening. We are all doing our best during covid something not one of us have ever experienced in our lifetime. We also have never experienced not fully being in business for 4 months & working in very different circumstances. Pat Trama has kept the menu the same size, he orders daily so everything is fresh & nothing wasted. He is 99% right on with his ordering but nothing is 100% predictable. Our sincere apologies, we do hope to see you again

Great food, awesome service. No umbrellas or shade for 5:30 Resy. Got some fabricated excuse of ordered awning or umbrella and could have sat at another table for 6 but another idiotic excuse.

Will most definitely return, food and service is too good to pass up. Hopefully get the kids out of the patrons way and put professionals who know to communicate with the customer.

Golfrabbit thank you for writing a review. Sorry about not having shade. We are doing our best during a 1st time pandemic. It has been financially stressful not fully being in business for 4 months & having a weeks notice to turn our restaurant inside out. We did order an awning that week & today it got installed. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the food & service. We give the young the opportunity on their 1st job as we all had to start somewhere so we appreciate the patience. 😊Laura Trama

Food was beyond outstanding. Great Caesar salad and mussels, and seafood (scallops and bronzino) and pasta (cacio y Pepe and rigatoni) were perfectly done. Outside area, especially in way back, far too noisy and server forgot about us on occasion.

Would definitely return, especially when indoor seating allowed.
