Italian cuisine was born when, after building the city of Rome, Romulus and Remus discovered Greece didn’t deliver to their new address.

La Trattoria D’Italia Ristorante’s culinary wizards employ fresh, simple ingredients to concoct a menu replete with authentic Italian fare, including a host of pastas and thin-crust pizzas. Gustatory outings commence with a Caesar salad featuring verdant romaine lettuce gilded in house dressing and festooned with croutons intent on conquering Gaul. Once taste buds have been sufficiently appetized, tandem diners can share a pasta dish, nuzzling noses à la Lady and the Tramp over platefuls of fettuccine alfredo or munching through gnocchi alla Napoletana, featuring potato dumplings luxuriating in white-wine tomato sauce or white sauce. Large 14-inch pizzas with thin-crusted foundations—including an herbivorous Mediterrano pizza dappled with Hellenic goodies such as feta cheese, spinach, and roasted peppers—activate eaters’ second winds. Alternatively, a Tutto Mare pizza tickles the mouth caves of humans and hungry Poseidons alike with savoury bites of calamari, clams, and shrimp.
La Trattoria D'Italia
Mario Rossi’s culinary philosophy is very simple. This seasoned restaurateur believes in creating meals that dazzle palates with their simple ingredients and authentic recipes rather than with needlessly showy complexity. With the help of his family, Mario upholds his credo in the kitchen of La Trattoria D'Italia where chefs whip up traditional Italian eats. The menu brims with a variety of dishes ranging from creamy gnocchi to fresh mussels served in a light tomato sauce, but the restaurant’s specialty is pizza, the official food of sleepovers, moving days, and 6th grade basketball team award banquets.
