Dal Contadino Trattoria

Parking is simple— right outside the door. We were greeted by the hostess and immediately were made to feel at home. The server was excellent and made good recommendations, and drinks were served in a timely manner. All food was absolutely delicious. It was homemade from scratch. The atmosphere was fun with entertainment. There were Italian songs and it turned into a sing-along involving the entire restaurant. This is a must visit whether you like Italian food or not.

We had high hopes upon entering the restaurant. Nicely decorated, charming feeling, great Italian music playing. Service started fine, but as the night progressed, the server was inserting himself into our conversation even though we did not ask him. The bus staff was trying to clear dishes before we were done eating. The food, in general, overall lacked flavor. Portion sizes varied, but in general, were smaller than I would have anticipated, especially given the price. The food did not arrive at the table very hot. Extensive wine menu with good selections. After spending $300 on dinner for four, I walked away less than satisfied. Given the number of amazing Italian restaurants in our area, I would not return to this one.

Since the moment we saw the tables outside and came into the restaurant we were transported to Italy. Eduardo, the server was very knowledgeable and attentive. It was very calm because we went early but we can imagine the place at night. It was very fun. We ordered a bottle of Falanghina wine, but they were out. So we ordered Terroirs Gavi and it was amazing! Our food was cooked to perfection. Flavors, texture, timing great. Dessert was ridiculously good! Yummy! Price was great compared to Miami!
