Nestled in the heart of The Woodlands is what some might believe to be one of the best kept culinary secrets in all of Houston. From the moment you enter La Trattoria Tuscano you are enveloped by a warm and inviting elegant family feel. La Trattoria is an Italian restaurant with much more than your standard Italian fare, it is a taste sensation! Both bistro and restaurant, La Trattoria offers their patrons exquisite food, wonderful ambiance and a friendly staff. Family owned and operated La Trattoria features Master Chef Bob Ham. A second-generation cook, Chef Bob’s father began his storied career at the famed 21 Club in New York in 1936. Growing up and training with a Master Chef made this warm and charming owner of La Trattoria a gracious host and a taste guru. Chef Bob likes to prepare food that in his own words “sounds and tastes good together.” It is this expression of the taste experience that drives their menu and separates La Trattoria from the other restaurant choices in The Woodlands. Their menu features all original recipes born from the mind of Chef Bob. “Each dish is prepared daily from scratch,” explains the chef.Dining at La Trattoria is a family affair. While Chef Bob works his magic in the kitchen, his son Kris and daughter Kristie manage the operations and tend to your every need. With warm and inviting seating for over 200 combining the main room and the covered patio, La Trattoria can accommodate your date night, family get together, large party or corporate function. ~ By Robert David
