Food Review: Restaurant Weeks At La Trattoria

February 3, 2019

[Written by Mikaela Ian Pearman]

For my second last stop for Restaurant Weeks, I decided to hit up the super family-friendly La Trattoria with my family.

I hadn’t eaten there in years and I’d never been during RW. Plus, the menu [PDF] looked inviting. I figured it would be a win-win situation.

When we arrived, we were ushered to a table next to the pizza area, which made my boys happy. After getting some bread and tapenade and pizza for the boys, I was ready to eat some delicious Italian food.

For starters, we ordered Plantain Parmigiana and Baccala e Patate. The parmigiana was very similar to the eggplant version I love so much, but obviously made with plantains.

I was a bit hesitant because I don’t normally eat plantains, but once I tasted it, I knew it was the best appetizer I’ve had during RW. It was zesty, cheesy and so comforting. I could’ve eaten it as my main in a larger portion. That’s how delicious it was.

The second offering was a take on codfish and potatoes. The dish was cornmeal crusted codfish on top of a sliced roasted potato topped with spicy tomato jam and avocado. It was absolutely delicious, and I felt like I was eating an upscale version of the breakfast favorite. Not sure why more restaurants don’t offer something like this all the time. Tourists come here to eat local food.

For the main, we both ordered Pan-friend Spiced Grouper with pumpkin mousse and diced seasonal vegetables. The fish was well-seasoned and cooked beautifully. I wasn’t a fan of the mousse, but the veggies were very good.

Finally, for dessert, the only choice was Honey Panna Cotta. I never order this dessert so I wasn’t sure if I would like it. When it came out, I took a bite and fell in love.

It was creamy and smooth with a decadent honey flavour. And at the same time, it was incredibly light. I had to stop myself from eating it since I’m trying to stay on the healthy eating path. But honestly, it was wonderful.

Overall, I enjoyed my meal at La Trattoria. The staff were incredible, and the meal was delicious. I’ll be sure to pop back soon, with or without the kids, for a wonderful dinner.
