First time to visit, and it was delicious! We both had veal dishes: I had the Marsala and my husband had the one with olives. We both loved our meals. Veal was great!! Service - by Olga - was wonderful. Salad was lovely, the bread was fresh and delicious. My husband had the pannacotta for dessert, with an espresso and he loved them both. Ambiance was quaint. Delicious, fresh, authentic meal ... will certainly return!

Our Uber driver Chef Nick took us here after our original choice was closed. It was very busy for a Wednesday night but service and food was amazing. Focaccia was pillowy soft, the pasta was amazing. We actually ordered another serving to take out for breakfast. Pina, it was amazing. So glad Nick took us here

The downtown location is cool and there is ample parking in the lot behind the restaurant.

The decor is quaint, old school Italian cafe and the acoustics are awesome. It was rather crowded, however, it was not noisy at all.

Reservations are recommended and with good reason. Pasta is made fresh on site, the side salads are fresh and look like a work of art, the basket of bread comes out warm to your table with a side of oil and herbs for dipping that had a great flavor profile.

Our server was very helpful with wine recommendations as the list had many I was unfamiliar with. My water glass was always filled without asking, and plates were cleared on a timely basis.

The dishes were prepared simply with the freshest ingredients. The spaghetti del la Contadina was the best marinara I have ever experienced as the tomatoes were fresh and cooked for the order. Given the Galveston location, the seafood dishes also had fresh gulf shrimp and fish which were prepared to embrace their texture and sweetness.

Only disappointment was there was no table side Parmesan cheese service. The Parmesan was the 'Kraft' variety in one of the kitschy shakers you find at Pizza Hut.

Will definitely return and will recommend to friends.

Ensconced in an old building close to the Grand Opera House, this Trattoria offers classical Italian fare, mostly Southern Italian, with expertise in the kitchen and pride in the output. The Octopus and Calamari were outstanding, the pasta was fresh and the veal dishes excellent. The meat lasagna was very tasty, as were the tortellini and other pasta dishes. Traditional desserts and excellent Lavazza espresso complement the food. The Cappuccino, unfortunately, was more a cafe-au-lait than a real Cappuccino, but very few places in the US can make a real Cappuccino anyways. The place is family-friendly and modest in appearance and prices are quite budget-friendly.
