Review of Trattorie by ChchFoodie on Mon, 09 Mar 2009:

I was unimpressed. Went there a few times. The coffee was inconsistant. When it was good, it was really good. But when it wasn't it was just o.k. My main problem was the food. I ordered the cheesecake. It must have been in there for a while as it tasted like the other items in the case. O.K. for where it is at but nothing too special.

Been only twice here, but both times the coffee (flat white) was quite good. The food is bit on the expensive side.

Trattorie, in Fendalton Village Mall, is a decent sized cafe in the middle of the 'burbs. The day I was there, it was full of mothers and kids.

The decor is modern - the metal and glass look. Fair trade Underground coffee is served, and they also sell it by the packet.

I've only been there once so can't really judge the coffee yet, but I couldn't find anything wrong with the short black I had there the other day, so it gets the seal of approval for the time being :)
