Diner Reviews
  • "The food was delicious but the serving sizes were too large. I would love to see Trombino offer smaller plates. The service was very slow so I wouldn't go here unless I knew I could sit back, relax and enjoy a leisurely meal."

  • "I had just placed friends from back East on an airplane and this was an opportunity to reconnect with my girlfriend- just the two of us and it was just what we needed."

  • "We brought our son as it was his 21st year of life. Too bad you couldn't accept his driver's license as it was the vertical one but that did not take away from the excellent service or food."

  • "So what if Mario Batali doesn't work here? The food is great, generous portions, and comforting. When you just want something that hits the spot, fills you up, and is very satisfying, you won't go wrong here. And even on a very busy night, the service was exemplary."

  • "Trombino's had a busy Friday, but there was no wait for our table. Service was prompt, attentive, and accurate. The kitchen executed our meal on point. The food, of course, tasted wonderful and the portions were generous. Trombino's is an "essential" restaurant."

  • "and it was quite good.all seemed to us to be very fresh ingredients. bread was made in house and tasty which is always a good litmus test. i ordered the house made sausage and spouse veal picatta. both top notch. portions ample to large. no chance to try dessert."

  • "Trombino's is a little difficult to get to even though you can see their sign from a good distance, but persevere. The food is good and the servings are enormous! My husband and I HAD THE CREOLE SHRIMP AND THEY WERE DELICIOUS! And there was a huge pile of them so take your teenaged friends here and even they won't go home hungry! The service was gracious and helpful too. We got a table in a little nook so the noise level was such that we could hear our friend and she could hear us."

  • "Traveling with large family and looking for a Saturday night reservation to avoid waiting when we arrived by car. When our party of 9 arrived we were sat immediately. The food was great. We will return again!"

  • "If the food was as good as the service, this would be a five-star recommendation. My partner ordered the frutti di mare, which was served without the pasta that was listed as an ingredient of the dish--basically he got a wine broth with clams and mussels. The goat cheese ravioli I ordered was not as good as the first time I had it a week or so earlier. Our friends enjoyed scampi, but we all agreed that we were somewhat disappointed in the meal."

  • "Trombino's has been a local favorite for a long time and they deserve their following for their good food and service. Be prepared for the large portions, knowing there's another meal for another day."

  • "Staff was very good and attentive without being intrusive. Food was very good and served with good timing between courses, everything was hot and prompt. Bread could be improved with with some good italiano offering."

  • "This was our first time in and we brought my wife's mother for her birthday. The food was really good and the portions were surprisingly large. They even gave her a complimentary dish of spumoni ice cream for her birthday. It was probably the best spumoni I've tasted. i will recommend this restaurant to anybody and I certainly will return again and again."

  • "The food and service was excellent and quite inexpensive from the viewpoint of people from the west coast. The staff were attentive, the food arrived quickly however we never felt rushed. The cream puff dessert could have been meal by itself. A must try in Albuquerque!"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Reserved a booth, checked in and told it would be ready shortly, then saw the booth given to another party! When I approached the desk about it, they acted like I didn't even have a reservation! Manager apologized, people seated at our table refused to move. NOT what I'd hoped Mother's Day dinner for my elderly neighbor would be. Manager offered free appetizer and dessert but..... :-("

  • "Trombino's has long been a favorite dining place for my mother and I for special occasions and this one was no different. The food was excellent and our server, Julianna, was outstanding. She made suggestions for us, was never pushy and pleasant. The only downside was that the restaurant was very busy because of the holiday, and therefore noisy. This will not stop us from going again."
