Established in 1979, La Trattoria is one of Bermuda’s longest standing restaurants and a favourite of locals and visitors alike. Located in the heart of Hamilton, it is a place to savour hearty Italian food in an unpretentious, laid-back atmosphere.
Year after year, La Trattoria is recognised as best in Bermuda for their rustic, thin crust pizza and warm, kid-friendly environment, all at an extraordinarily affordable price. Inside, spirited servers glide between tables as families, young professionals and couples on date nights dine with pleasure. Red brick walls and rustic tile floors are warm and familiar, with an authentic, Italian feel. Upon arrival, you cannot help but notice the iconic display of chicken carafes, a popular souvenir and a pleasure to fill. The unique glass-inlayed tables start you onto interesting conversations as you people watch, overlooking the Washington Lane. If al fresco is your preference, there are a few outdoor tables you might enjoy during Hamilton’s busy lunch hour.
Executive Chef Angelo D’Amato cooks with a passion and style inspired by his home on the Amalfi Coast of Southern Italy. A master in the kitchen, he is known for crafting traditional dishes as well as those with a Bermudian twist, incorporating local produce in a number of dishes. General Manager Nicola Russo and Executive Chef Angelo D’Amato lead La Trattoria’s successful and professional team with their steadfast commitment to excellent food and warm and friendly service. Together, they have built lifelong relationships with each and every happy guest, one meal at a time.
La Trattoria’s award-winning pizzas are made by hand in true thin-crust Neapolitan fashion. Decorated with fresh mozzarella cheese and homegrown basil, they are cooked to perfection in Bermuda’s only 100% wood burning oven. By far the crowd favourite is the Arugula Pizza, which features a thin layer of tomato sauce and delicate slices of Parma ham. Another menu highlight is the Lasagna Trattoria, which consists of sheets of al dente pasta layered with a signature meat and cheese bolognese and baked until bubbly. Guests cannot get enough of the Chicken Cacciatore with its delicious combination of onion, carrot, celery and mushroom sauce. La Trattoria happily caters to guests’ food allergies, such as gluten intolerance, to ensure that everyone can enjoy heartwarming Italian cuisine.
What better accompaniment to any one of those savory dishes but to pair a flavourful wine from one as simple as a Chianti to one as complex as a Brunello? If an island experience is what you thirst, they also offer Dark n’Stormy, Rum Swizzle and everything in between, all at affordable prices. To end your dining experience, remember to try a Limoncello!
