Reviews of La Trattoria Restaurant
11/10/2013 - Bob Lasher
Its been a while since Ive posted and Gae has some new offerings of note: Hes added a massive Florentine steak ( I cant remember if its Porterhouse or T-bone) and its everything it should be and reminded us of the steak we had in Florence last spring. Now, it isnt cheap, HOWEVER, it fed me and my uber-carnivore wife with a nice serving leftover to take home. Hes also offering a handy-sized petit filet mignon, which we order often because its perfect for nights when one wants both meat and pasta or seafood as opposed to only beef. Last night my wife and I both ordered one with Gaes amazing gorgonzola sauce. Unbelievably delicious! I enjoyed a side of the homemade gnocchi in the same sauce and she had a side of penne with w/ pink sauce (no amaretto). Oh-my, they were good.
Speaking of the gorgonzola sauce, one of my favorite pastimes when at La Trattoria, is watching the reactions of first-timers when they taste the food. A couple of weeks ago, a Brooklyn Italian was visiting family and they brought her to La Trattoria. She ordered an appetizer of the gnocchi gorgonzola after assurances from other customers that shed like it.
They were a table of 10 who reminded us a little of Tulas family from My Big Fat Greek Wedding. When the dish arrived, she inhaled deeply with eyes closed as she savored the aroma and then took a delicate bite
which was also the last delicate bite that she took. Her eyes opened to the size of silver-dollars and one of her family asked how it was. Dont bother me, Im busy, was the reply! She didnt speak another word until the plate was wiped free (using bread) of any last trace of gorgonzola sauce. I SO respect that!

Loved the food and Helena's friendly conversation, however this past winter we found her resturant closed and the phone disconnected. Does anyone know...
I like to visit GolfView on Friday evenings, when their specialty is all you can eat fish and chips for $10. They use fresh tilapia, and panko bread ...
