On a typical Friday night at J. Trani's Ristorante, a visit to the dining room reveals a host of family and friends and the bar is bustling with a crowd that can only be described as enthusiastic. Most of the crowds are long time friends, but even those who aren't are made to feel like one of the family.

The food was good. Our server was more than pleasant. One observation: with the prices they charge, I noticed no tableclothes.

My wife and I had a wonderful evening here, the meal was delicious as always and the atmosphere and service were both top notch! This is a perfect restaurant for a date, which we have had here many times before. When we actually had a babysitter and a night to ourselves, J.Trani's was our first choice, and fortunately we were able to book a reservation on the evening we wanted! We were particularly impressed with a new appetizer Tempura Shishito Peppers. A great mix of spicy and sweet, and unlike anything else I've had there! I had a lobster spaghetti which was excellent, you really can't go wrong with anything on their menu! I always ask the waiter for a wine pairing for my meal choice, and their recommendations are always the perfect compliment! Make sure to save some room for desert as well! This is the perfect place for a memorable meal and romantic evening with your loved one!

Great food , very good service and prices reasonable. The only negative was the band was too loud which filtered into the dining room that made it difficult to have a conversation.

Always a great meal. Bartender made a drink for me that I wanted that wasn't on menu. Always nice!!! Very good too. The service is first class, and Bobby always makes sure we are comfortable. Everything on menu is GREAT, everything! Great chef!

Always a great experience. The grilled octopus is something special! Our favorite place to go when we have company or just want a night out.

We had been wanting to go to Trani's for quite sometime. We went for a family dinner. The waiter was friendly and informative about the restaurant and the long history in San Pedro. He went over the menu and let us know the specials. We settled on the Penne with short rib ragu, the East Coast Scallops Linguine and the pork shank. Everything was extraordinary, delicious and well served. We were taken back by the many selections of pasta, fish and pizzas that were on the menu. We left the restaurant and let our family know that Trani's is a special place, full of tradition and a menu to match.

Wonderful food. Didn't realize using Open Table, you could indicate where you wanted to sit, restaurant or bar. Music was too loud.
