My pizza funghi was a little dry, it needed a little more sauce and cheese and the mushrooms didn't have much flavour but the dough was wonderfully light and thin. My husband chose the spaghetti with scallops from the specials menu and he said they were absolutely delicious.
Lovely food and reasonable price while on help out to eat out. Price of wine was horrendous. £15 for half caravan 😩. Will defo go again but won’t be ordering wine next time.
I can highly recommend this restaurant, it is very nice and airy with well spaced tables settings.
The restaurant has managed to retain its lovely pre Covid ambience attracting a nice mix of both adults and families with children.
The food was as always delicious and the service was on point with the staff being attentive and organised but not to the point that you felt rushed in any way.
I look forward to returning.
Service was attentive and efficient, starters very good. I had scallops my wife had pate, really tasty. Main course spaghetti dish and a pizza. If there was any complaint asked for fresh chilli on my pizza and was charged£1.50 seems a bit steep to me, 10p to buy! On a £60 + bill should be complimentary.
Good food, good service in a convenient location and good COVID-19 practices.
Food choice was very limited due to COVID! We ordered from the specials menu and frankly the food had very little taste and was on the whole very disappointing, especially considering the price! We usually visit here a few times when we are in town, but have been put off, there are far nicer places in Swanage for better value for money.
Felt very comfortable plenty of space. Waiting staff all wearing masks and gloves. Menu smaller than normal but all the favourites
La Trattoria lives up to expectations, being a well established business that knows how to provide its customers with good service. The food was very much up to the standard expected and they have adapted well to the current circumstances in still providing a great dining experience despite the restrictions that we are all having to deal with.
Food and service was fantastic as ever! Clear and simple COVID precautions. Staff were so friendly, masks and gloves were worn.
Great value for money. 100% would recommend.
Wonderful Lasagne and delicious Tiramisu
Staff are coping well with Covid19 restrictions
Lovely Food with good service . Been before a couple of years ago . Just as good this time . Even with the covid restrictions .
It would be easy with the reduced number of diners for the crew to be over attentive, but they have the balance just right.
I have eaten here on numerous occasions and was pleased that it remains simply, a nice relaxing dinner out, perfect.
Olives were cheap as you like - 99p out of a jar. Pizza was ok. Wine was cheap and still expensive. Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive, however.
As usual, staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. Excellent food and drink served promptly without being rushed. Couldn't fault it. A safe dining experience observing all current Guidance.
went with friends during COVID 19 and they did very well. Would go back again. Wanted to go with family but they don't allow under 5's, which I think is very poor, especialy for this town.
We had a lovely evening, service was good food was okay
We only visit Swanage once a year and always book a table
Very pleased with the whole experience
First visit to a restaurant since lockdown. We felt comfortable inside as we were reasonably spaced. The restaurant was very busy and the staff were efficient without being particularly friendly. The food was good without being brilliant. I would go again if I didn’t want to be blown away.
Enjoyed excellent family meal in a relaxed environment. Service prompt and attentive
Lovely food excellent service nice atmosphere particularly under the current circumstances
Expensive bowl of spaghetti with the head waiter saying he was risking his life! Why do they bother opening if they feel they are risking their lives! (Re corona) They shouldn’t have bothered,made us feel unwelcome as if they were doing us a favour being open! Won’t go there again.
Quite basic but food was more than acceptable. Service good.
very polite and very efficient service, clean environment and clean table. tasty food. very happy
We have been visiting this restaurant in Swanage for 10 years. The food was very disappointing and a limited menu.
When we expressed our disappointment the staff blamed It on COVID 19. There are many other better restaurants in Swanage.
Expensive, average food, was just ok.
Menu a little limited, maybe due to Covid. Staff pleasant and working hard.
We love this restaurant. The food is great, just amazing flavours. I had the scallops which were just excellent, served the most delicious sauce. Over the last year we have eaten at La Trattoria five or six times and every meal has been superb. In fact we were discussing as we ate that this is the Italian restaurant that we enjoy most.
Lovely evening out. Staff very friendly and food delicious. We have re-booked already.
Always have a meal here when we visit swanage, nice food nice staff, always delivers
Fantastic pizza. Great service. Very recommendable
I would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a lovely place to eat. I would advise to book days before you plan to eat here as it is very popular!! It is the first restaurant we book as soon as we know we are visiting Swanage.
Lovely meal the Mussels and scallops were divine.Well organised in these social distancing times
We always love a trip to La Trattoria the food is excellent and more than makes up for the slightly surly service. The starter portions of pasta are a perfect size and the pizzas cannot be beaten
Been coming for years good to see it open again - welcome back
Friendly, attentive and helpful staff. Delicious authentic thin based pizza, pasta great too. Simple homemade dishes with quality ingredients at a reasonable price. Will visit again.
Very good meal and enjoyed the restaurant. Well organised within the current restrictions
The staff are doing a fabulous job to serve customers during this crazy COVID-19 time. The food was tasty, served fast and by friendly staff.
Usual high standard of food and service. We love this restaurant.
A fantastic resturant where the staff are always friendly and very attentive
Excellent felt very safe and usual great quality
Excellent food and very quick service. Felt safe as good air flow/ventilation from the open door, with all staff wearing masks. Good gluten free pizza.
