The food at Trattoria is always amazing: fresh ingredients, fresh homemade pastas, dishes that will make you think you're in NYC, the staff is charming and friendly, and the bartender working Tuesday and Thursday nights is out of this world. Rick is a bartender of a bygone era. He mixes every drink with perfect precision, from the standard to the frou-frou, and is great for recommending the perfect wine from Trattoria's extensive selection. Rick is incredibly knowledgeable about the metro area and its various offerings, and is a great resource for latest and greatest attractions. In short, a gem. Sam's got nothing on Rick; if you haven't been to Trattoria's, I suggest visiting Rick for happy hour. Your favorite beverage, a fresh hot plate of the best calamari in town (Frittura Mista) and great company make for a relaxing, old world style evening you'll come back for.
Pros: FRESH Ingredients, Fantastic Service, Great Drinks
