Trattoria Procaccini

354 Nassau Street, Princeton

We all enjoy that home cooked Italian meal that's been handed down for generations but don’t always want to spend the time to cook it, especially since the best sauce alone cooks on the stove for hours. Now we have Trattoria so we don’t have to spend that time to indulge in a hearty, flavorful Italian dish that uses natural, organic and seasonal ingredients to send you straight back to Italy. You can now have your cake and eat it too.
