We have been several times now and always had a warm and friendly welcome and great food. The kids are always welcome too and love the very easy going atmosphere and are made to feel just as important as the grown ups.I would highly recommend this restaurant for just the two of you or the whole family, I've been there with just the wife and also with the whole extended family, everyone loved the food and the welcome!
Tramontes is a small Italian Restaurant based on the outskirts of Taunton, Heron Gate. The restaurant is part of a complex which includes Hollywood bowel, a cinema and there is a chineese restaurant. Despite being based on the complex, Tramontes is in a little area of its own right at the far end, you drive through a little arch way area to the restaurant. The interior of Tramontes was not what i had expected going on what my friends had told me about the restaurant. The restaurant is airy, there are little tables around the restaurant, very mediteranian looking. Despite being very open the restaurant has a brilliant warm, comfortable environment Italian style photos and paintings are on the walls and there are quite a lot of plants situated in the restaurant. Near the entrance there is a small bar, all drinks are bought to your table when you order them. They have an extensive Italian wine list which compliments any Italian dish. The food is very Italian with a wide range of Pasta, Steaks, Pizza and Fish dishes. The dishes that i have tried during my few visits have been of a very high quality. The only thing i wasnt keen on is when we wanted to pay we had to go to the bar to pay with our card as they only have the one card machine to pay on. Tramontes is open Tuesday-Sunday - 5.30 - 10pm and 12.30-2pm lunch on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The owner of the restuarant is extremely friendly as are the staff. Tramontes is a very popular restaurant in Taunton and if you intend to go at the weekend i strongly recommend that you call and reseve a table as it gets very busy, especially on a Saturday. If your looking for a nice Italian meal then this is the best place to go.
