Taking your kids to the restaurant is not always an easy task!
In some cases, the staff and other customers are looking worried that they might be disturbed by your kids behaviour. In other, he menu was only drawn for grown-ups and your kids might not like any of it. But whether you are residing on the island or here on vacation, you want to be having lunch or dinner with your children sometimes, or host a party for their birthday with all their friends in a restaurant.
There is a place on the island that is notably able and willing to welcome children, La Trattoria Restaurant and Pizzeria. This establishment is a regular winner of the Best of Bermuda Awards and for the second consecutive year, the judges of The Bermudian competition have given it the title of Best Kid-Friendly Restaurant.
Like many traditional Italian restaurants, La Trattoria is a family friendly restaurant and for that reason it has a separate menu for the little one. After all, there is no reasons why they couldn’t enjoy great food too and the earlier they learn about good food, the better.
The best feature of La Trattoria is its wood-burning pizza oven, one of the only two existing on the island. It doesn’t come as a surprise then that the restaurant is famous all over the island for its pizzas and it won several times the Best of Bermuda Awards for these in the past years. Locals, tourists, adults and kids, everyone will find a pizza they like amongst the 17 types available on the menu. For kids that are really fussy, and the adults too, the chef will be happy to make any pizza that doesn’t feature on the menu, just to make his customers happy.
The rest of the Trattoria’s menu reflects the best of Italian cuisine without being pretentious and expensive. The lasagne are regularly tipped as being the best on the island and can be had as a main or a starter, as well as the seafood spaghetti and many of the pasta. Amongst the favourites starters are the pork chop pan fried served with salad and onion jam, the grilled steak with bean salad and aromatic oil, or the fried veal filled with ham, Swiss cheese and mushrooms.
If you want something else than a pizza, try the popular chicken dishes such as the grilled chicken breast topped with pesto sauce and served with fettuccine in a cream sauce, or the pan-roasted chicken breast in onion, carrot and mushroom sauce with gravy and tomato.
The kids menu is a ‘colour-me’ menu, ideal to keep them busy during the short wait before getting served. It has all the kids favourites such as grilled cheese and fries, tuna sandwich, chicken nuggets or cheeseburger, all served with fries, as well as cheese and tomato pizza, cheese ravioli or spaghetti meatballs, both with tomato sauce. There is also a drink option with soda or juice, and ice cream for dessert.
By staying a local and family restaurant despite being popular and winning many awards for the quality of its food and its service, La Trattoria provides somewhere for parents to take their kids for a lunch or dinner without wasting money on dishes they won’t eat or feeling guilty because they might disturb the staff or the other customers. Kids are welcome and this makes for a nice atmosphere.
