The worst pizza I ever had....pizza in Gloucester is not that good to start , this is the bottom of the barrel. The pizza itself was like a greasy burnt sponge..no sauce I could see and the cheese was stringy.Posted by: Tom at February 3, 2012 07:30 PM
SKIP THE PIZZA!!!, You would hope that an italian restaurant would have italian style pizza, (cooked on a stone at least, crunchy crust, not so much cheese, not so raw) but this was far from it. I had to peel the cheese off, way too much, it seemed more like a pizza from the frozen food section of a super market, or a poor quality sub shop. Very greasy crust, probably from all the oil they use to clean the pans from, very chewy and soggie. I'm sorry for the poor review but after spending $16 on a pizza that wasn't even a real large, more like a medium, I will def. not be going back!Posted by: Nick at October 18, 2010 03:33 PM
I have eaten there a number of times, and it has been a mixed bag for me. I find the chef and who I assume to be the owner very helpful and friendly, but the hostess seems to have a chip on her shoulder when i walk through the door. I also find the pizza to be a little too soupy and the crust is far to thin to the point that it falls apart in my hand. Aside from one bad egg, the people are friendly, but I would urge you to skip the pizza.Posted by: Bobby at May 21, 2009 01:59 PM
I don't work for or have anything to do with the Trattoria . . .

It really would be nice if this restaurant wouldn't write there own reviews .Posted by: Dana at April 21, 2009 02:25 PM
Best veal, best sauce. I know Pete and Sam from the restaurant in Boston near Fenway. I'm glad they opened La Trattoria in Gloucester and offer great food in a lovely setting. When I come up from Brockton, I always sit down and enjoy their food.Posted by: Paul Murphy at April 21, 2009 06:39 AM
Gloucester's BEST pizza, without doubt. Crust, toppings, creative combos . . . everything.
We tried the rest, then found the best . . . and they deliver, too.
Guaranteed YUM!Posted by: Discerning EATS critic at December 21, 2008 05:08 PM
Best pizza in Gloucester, hands down. And, they deliver!Posted by: bill at December 13, 2008 10:37 AM
We are from the west coast and were spending time in Gloucester. We happened in to this place in the mid afternoon for a guick desert and drink. The owner and lady working were extremely friendly, and interested in us. This prompted us to return that evening for one of the best Italian dinners we have ever had. When we came back to town the following week we made a point to stop one afternoon, and the owner remembered us. We again ate dinner there. Very friendly and authentic Italian food. Highly recommend this restaurant.Posted by: Dave & Elaine at October 2, 2008 07:09 PM
The rotini is incredible! apparently it is a family recipe that the owner's mother takes great pride in because it is heart healty. She doesn't fry the eggplant!!
Excellent place to eat! Very fine dining. Good Pizza and Great Calzones. Try chicken and Broccolli! The Best ever! Wonderful service. Very friendly staff! Deserves a five star!!!!!!!!Posted by: TINA at June 19, 2008 05:48 PM
I have went to this place many of times i have always loved the food and it is pretty cheap. the staff is pleasent.Posted by: kshm at March 21, 2008 08:25 PM
I must say...I have been to a few functions at La Trattoria...and have always left VERY pleased. The food is fantastic and flavorful, and the service has been great. The owners are very friendly and family oriented. I also had my daughters Graduation Party here, and it went off perfectly. Everyone loved the food, and the owners were once again very pleasant and went out of their way to make it a perfect day for my daughter and our guests.
Great Food !
Well Done!Posted by: Brent at March 11, 2008 12:02 AM
I think it is kind of lame that this place gave itself their own review. I would not eat there just because of that, they should have the public decide not themselves. And why do we care so much about Sandy from China, do you serve Chinese food therePosted by: Mark L. at March 10, 2008 12:13 PM
We'd like to thank everyone that has taken time to write a reiew about us.

The pizza is amazing! I travel all the way from Malden to get it...totally worth the trip. Every dish is made to order and is served hot and fresh and delicious. I have also used their banquet halls for functions of 50 and over and have scored big points with our guests for the great food and fantastic service. they are an all star team and they do you right! Can't reccomend them enough.Posted by: Troy at September 7, 2007 11:48 AM
RUDEST PEOPLE IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD!!!! I just tried to call this restaurant to book a buffet for 50 people and they told me rudely 1) Call back because its a really busy time...which ok, I get that, but no need to be rude but then the woman actually HUNG UP ON ME!!!! and then 2) for some reason after she hung up on me there was still guy on another line there who started yelling at me telling me not to call back. WHAT THE HECK IS UP WITH THAT??? THEY APPARENTLY DON'T WANT BUSINESS. I am just so upset right now, I would definitely NEVER EVER GO TO THIS RESTAURANT. After treatment like that, I will tell all my friends and family never to step foot in this restaurant. I can't imagine how they treat customers when they are face to face, but ifs its anything like they do on the phone, FORGET IT. I am still shocked at the treatment I just received. HORRIBLE!!!!Posted by: Sandy at June 15, 2007 09:35 PM

This is our favorite restaurant. Not only is the food great but it's like you're part of the family when you are there. We go at least once a week and sometimes more often.Posted by: Jerry & Diane at April 18, 2007 10:47 PM
I just can't help savoring in my mind, weeks after my visit to the restaurant, the fresh and delicious hors-d'oeuvre, prelude to my dinner...
The real sicilian food wow wow the best food i ever had LOVE THE PLACE TRATTORIAPosted by: jak at March 2, 2007 07:27 PM
The food... was outstanding. The menu....too many delicious looking options to choose from. This place is in a perfect Gloucester location, if it was in the North End it would blow most of the Italian restaurants out of the water. Last time I heard they were working on a liquor license.They really went to town on the decor...There is a private room in the back and its has beautiful. They were getting ready for a sit down dinner for 30 or 40.
Its pretty new, I had met the owners, Peter & Sam & , from a previous restaurant they worked at. They are very friendly, they came around to all the tables and said Hello. So tell them Danielle sent you.
You will love it...Trust me I'm an event planner from California formerly from Boston. My standards are high from Service to Food to Decor. This is a winner.Posted by: Danielle at February 4, 2007 02:42 PM
