As always, Pat Trama and his staff put an excellent product for all to consume. We had a large family "friendgivings" on Frdiay the 26th; eight family and friends. Andrew, one of the servers was, as always on his game. From appetizers to entrees, Andrew was helpful. As for choice of wines, his knowledge of various wines was spot on.

I highly recommend Trama espcially in the winter when it's somewhat easier to reserve a table!!

You can never have a mediocre or bad meal at Trama’s Trattoria. It is just near perfect here; the food is divine, the wait staff is amazing, the bar is terrific. Make a reservation. You won’t be disappointed.

Cozy bar seats. Wonderful bartender, Rob, took exceptional care of us! Food was delish. Level of noise was a little bit uncomfortable. Loud in dining room. Overall excellent service and plan to be back soon! Rate it a 10!

Wondeful to be back at our fav restaurant! Been too long. Amazing food and creative cocktails abound!
Had the Branzino! Delish! And hubby enjoyed the swordfish! Could not wait to try the hot new cocktail- Empire is Falling. Out of this world! Could not let our dinner experience end without delectable dessert options and cappuccino and black coffee - respectively. Will be back soon, for certain! Bon Appetite! GL

Hands down one of my favorite restaurants. The mussels were deliciously prepared as always. The Orecchiette and Broccoli Rabe was on point, and the Veal Parmigiana was scrumptious. The service once again was outstanding. Can’t wait to go back!

The chef at Trama has it dialed in. The chicken over risotto was delicious- great flavor and perfectly cooked.
Everything is very good.

Trama's Trattoria is ALWAYS the best on the Jersey Shore. It is worth a trip from anywhere. The food is excellently prepared by Chef Pat Trama and served perfectly by Andrew and Sean. You couldn't ask for more.

Everything is delicious and we ate EVERY bite!!!

Service was great. There were 4 of us- 2 ordered Cesarean salad
And it seemed to be lacking a major taste ingredient we both agreed. The 2 caprese salads were excellent. My halibut was wonderful but the potatoes were too hard to eat. My friend ordered the eggplant appetizer as her main and it was good, not great. Then there were 2 veal parmigiana entrees which were pretty good. All in all it was a good place and I would go again but order different things.

Loud and skimpy with their portions
Calamari was about 7 rings old and rubbery with a ton of grape tomatoes and arugula in it!
Table next to us was a bunch of wild animals super loud I couldn’t have a decent conversation with my friend!
The waiter was super nice and the main course was great, but the noise level is too much and the prices are kind of high for what is available!

Another delicious dinner at Trama. The food is perfectly prepared and served. Our waiter, Andrew, was terrific - he did a great job taking care of us. I enjoyed the fluke with lemon risotto - a wow! My husband loved the steak Florentine. Wonderful desserts, too - Panna cotta and gelato - so yummy! Can't wait to go back!
