Except for the Pricey Wine List everything was amazing. The entrees were terrific and the service as well as the ambiance was just great . They really should readjust the wine list to make it more in line with the cost of dining

As always we enjoyed everything we had at Trama's. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her salmon and I also enjoyed My Fluke. Service was very attentive and the appetizers and desserts were also first rate. We are looking forward to our next visit to Trama's.

Food was very good...but very pricey. Eighteen dollar apps...32 dollar spaghetti with white clam sauce. Food was great...but it cost 200 for two with two drinks each

What a fantastic evening! The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Our server, Sean, is clearly a valuable asset to the Trama team and the chef/kitchen staff are very talented. DEFINITELY worth trying and we’ll be back soon. Thank you for an incredible birthday celebration!

First time at Trama's and the food and service outstanding. The salmon was cooked perfectly. Andrew was our waiter and went above and beyond to make sure that our experience was exceptional! Definitely coming back.

The noise level was impossible so we asked them to pack and food and took it home. The food was pretty good, not wonderful - we had the veal parmesan. I think we'll just consider delivery next time.

Food was excellent as usual; we have been there several times. Our service was slow and we had to ask for some items more than once. There is another waiter we have had that was very attentive and we enjoy his service very much (blond hair and sorry but do not remember his name), Next time we come, I will ask for him; and I would highly recommend him.

Our dining experience was just okay. The tables were very close to each other and felt cramped and noisy. Food was good but not for the price they were charging. Caprese salad was underwhelming. Fluke francese was good, but very small for $30. Just wasn’t a very relaxing and pleasant experience overall. Very disappointed because the restaurant came highly recommended.

The food was very good, but the experience was not. The waiter was inattentive and we placed at a claustrophobic table so getting up for the restroom was a chore. It was also hard to have a conversation because large tables surrounded us. The most negative thing, however, was the portions. You don't usually expect to leave an Italian restaurant hungry, but that was indeed the case. Cross this one off the list.

Second time here. Really great food. Good wine list. The waiter was wonderful eveb tho it was clear the place was understaffed (possibly because of the classic car show that was going on in the street drew walk in patrons).

Defintely worth a drive!

I was looking forward to dining here, as many people that I know had recommended it. The food was fine, but nothing special. The "just made ricotta" was creamy & very good, as was the caponata. The grilled rubbed "garlic" bread overwhelmed the entire dish. The tomatoes in the caprese salad needed another 2 or 3 days of ripening. The Fluke Francaise was under seasoned & the spaghetti with Pat's red sauce, clams and Calabrian chili peppers was not very spicy.

Overall restaurant was ok in terms of service. Food was ok. Not great and not terrible. They were however very accommodating when we needed to change one of our dinners due to unexpected spices used. We would give them another try.
