Ti scegli la carne, te la cucinano al momento. Servizio ottimo, locale gradevole, prezzi convenienti e soprattutto carne buonissima. Consiglio! You choose the meat, they readily roast it for you. Excellent service, well furnished room, cheap prices and most importantly tasty meat dishes. Recommended!

My partner and I were hesitant before visiting La Tradizione as we are unable to speak Italian, but we're really glad we went! The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly and looked after us. As other reviews have mentioned, you enter La Tradizione and are faced with a butchers counter. You choose the meat you want and... More
