Authentic and traditionally cooked Italian dishes in the heart of Lincoln

La Trattoria da Vincenzo

La Trattoria Da Vincenzo LincolnLa Trattoria [pronounced: La traht-to-ree-ah] is historically a small and traditional family run eatery, where guests are recommended to eat the freshly cooked special of the day.

An Italian Restaurant co-owned by myself Vincenzo Tragni and local businessman Peter Downes. We aim to serve you with traditionally cooked family dishes, offering you only authentic recipes and something different to the larger chain restaurants.

La Trattoria opened on the 4th July 2011 and business has grown from strength to strength based on word of mouth alone, such is the standard of our food and service. I personally designed the menu and oversee all the cooking myself. That is why I can confidently say that all the dishes are served with pride, passion and a little bit of Italian ‘amore’.

Whilst serving high quality food is an obvious priority, making people feel at home and relaxed in our restaurant is also very important to me. I regularly offer themed nights, where you can sample dishes from the different regions of Italy and often bring a little bit of my home town right here to Lincoln.

My Italian history

La Trattoria Da Vincenzo LincolnI feel I should provide you with a little bit of background, both about myself and the origins of the dishes served in our restaurant.

I originally arrived in England in 1996, leaving a large family of chefs behind me, in my home town of Altamura (known as the little ‘town of bread’).

I came here to help my brother, who had already set up a well established and successful Italian Restaurant in Hull (named Operetta).

Altamura is located in the region of Puglia, in southern Italy, which is not only famous for its wine and olive oil but for the passion of its people and their love of food.

The local region is well known for its production of vast amounts of vegetables, including aubergines and artichokes. You will find these used in many of my meat and pasta dishes.

Also prominent is the production of fresh ‘Strascinati’ pasta, which is still made even to this day, by the hands of the elder women in my hometown, outside their houses and in their streets.
