Trattoria Moderna

Trattoria Moderna Review

The space is as the name implies—modern, with high ceilings, and done in shades of beige and gray—and an oversize chalkboard displays daily specials, such as a delicious chickpea and baccalà (salt cod) soup. The food runs toward the traditional but with a twist, like a pasta all'amatriciana with kosher beef instead of the requisite guanciale (cured pork jowl). Main courses are more creative, as well as more hit-or-miss. The jumbo shrimp in a cognac sauce with couscous was tasty, but the scant four shrimp a drawback. The trattoria gets an "A" for effort, with its friendly serving staff and very reasonable prices, and an extra bonus is the outdoor seating—a few tables surrounded by greenery, off the lovely cobblestone street.
