Trattoria is an Italian-Style eating establishment, less formal than a ristorante, but more formal than an Osteria. There are generally no printed menus, the service is casual, wine is sold by the decanter rather than the bottle, prices are low, and the emphasis is on a steady clientale rather than on "haute" cuisine. The food is modest, but plentiful (mostly following regional and local recipes) and in some instances, served family-style (i.e. at common tables).
Trattorie have adopted old rustic and familiar style. The word is cognate with the French word-traiteur, meaning a "caterer" that only makes take out food; optionally, trattoria food may be bought in containers for take out.
Osteria=a place serving wine and simple food. The menus tend to be short with an emphasis on local specialties such as pasta, grilled meat or fish, and served at shared tables.
Decanter=a vessel that is used to hold the decantation of a liquid, which may contain sediment; used as serving vessels for wine.
Haute="high" (french)-high sewing/dress-making; the creation of exclusive, custom fitted fashions; grand cuisine, the cooking of the grand restaurants and hotels of the western world.
