We were greeted by the maitre’d. The restaurant was totally filled. We had reservations thru open table. The maitre’d was apologetic for having to keep us waiting on a cold night for a table o clear and offered us a complementary appetizer for keeping us waiting. This was unexpected and just delightfully. The food was absolutely delicious. The waiter was 4 star -rated because he seemed overly busy and we did not have time to have a second wine when he came to the table to offer dessert. Otherwise I can’t remember having a more delicious and enjoyable evening at Trilussa. Can’t wait to return. More

We had reservations for valentines day dinner for two. Checked in on time. Told they only had immediate availability outside on the patio. Almost felt we were corralled outside out of sight as I saw plenty of empty tables inside. Nobody else dined outside except us, on valentines day, reservations only. Odd! Alas if they put us outside because maybe we didn't fit the ambiance they did us a favor. Nobody but us on the patio, no noise, no looks from gawkers. Service was timely and the hostess who sat us did check on us. Food was OK but not 165 bucks worth. Meat was very tender, lobster a little overcooked and small meat in a big shell mmmm. Beware of the Large shrimp cocktail, 3 shrimp for 24 bucks. You do the math. Tangerine magarita was great. Next valentines dinner will be epic, but not here. More

Awesome experience dining at over 8000 ft. We both ordered the rib eye which was prepared exactly right--very juicy and good lean piece for a rib eye. Service could have been better. Restaurant was not crowded yet 3 tables of 2 were placed right on top of each other. Took 15 minutes to get a beer brought to the table and we had to go to the hostess to get some bread brought to us. While you understand it is cold up there at this time of year, they need to heat the area better as it got very cold during dinner. More
