I stopped into Trattoria to order a pizza and a salad to go. The salad was prepared incorrectly and had to be redone. Then the counter person provided a used box so that carrying my food to the car would be easier, unfortunately for me the box was dirty. These issues have kept me from returning even though I like...

Tried it based on the TA reviews. Pizza was robust in size but bland (5 toppings). Don't get the high ratings. It's nothing special at all.

The Food at Trattoria is amazing and delicious. I thoroughly enjoy being able to go and order a pizza, pasta or any other Italian dish my heart desires. The staff at the restaurant is also very nice and they always have sports on (a huge plus for me!).

They offer counter service of pizza, subs, salads and main course items. The pizza is really good, subs ok and salads really good. The greek salad and pizza are our favorites but the pasta dishes are really good, too. They will do catering and make it really easy. If you are having a party I highly recommend tricolored tortellini, garlic... More

Probably some of the best pizza in the Columbia area - both thin and thick crust. Lots of offerings for toppings. Dine in experience is what you would expect of a pizza joint - basically fast casual. Italian entrees, salads and sandwiches are good and again lots of choices. There is better Italian food in the Baltimore area, but this... More

I'm usually not a fan of Italian food because I find a lot of it is frozen food, but not Trattoria. The food is sooo good and you can tell the pasta is fresh! The pizza is real NY style and the best I have had in MD. I usually like to order Eggplant Parmigiana and I've never had Eggplant... More

Friendly trattoria with great daily specials. it is rare to find good veal dishes with past any longer, great crab field raviolis as well. Slowly but surely, the owner has added a few wines in the menu and you can watch the latest international soccer games while waiting for your pizza. When you do not want to cook after a... More

My son and I stopped for lunch at Trattoria. We each ordered a cheese steak sandwich. They were excellent. The roll was fresh and lightly toasted. The steak was tender and juicy. We enjoyed our lunch.

I stop in usually once a week or two for a slice of pizza to go for my lunch, and am always happy with it. They have several varieties to choose from. Finally my husband and I decided to try to go there dinner - and did not have the same luck. The salad was fresh and large, and I... More
