Trattoria Mario

Trattoria is a restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere that bills itself as serving Italian homestyle dishes. We have had Italian friends comment on its high level of authenticity.

Part of the local Mario chain, the prices at Trattoria are slightly higher than those at Mario Espresso, but for the extra yen you get more attentive service and the experience feels like a little more of a treat.

You can choose to sit in the main room, or in a tented inside/outside area which always makes me feel like I’m in somewhere a little different from the norm.
