Great service. Terrific food!
The service was what one would expect in a classy restaurant and the menu was exceptional.
The food is absolutely phenomenal, the same exact dishes at a steak house like Mastros charges double. That said the twi establishments are not comparable...
Overall excellent value for your money and the best restaurant hands down in the PV, San Pedro, Lomita and even Long Beach!
J. Trani’s has the best food—always delicious and a warm and welcoming ambiance.
Best restaurant in the South Bay for special occasions.
We were there to celebrate our friends 50th anniversary! Immediately after we finished our entree, the server shoved a creme brûlée onto the edge of the table by the special couple and said Happy anniversary, quietly. No candle. Didn’t ask if we wanted coffee. Didn’t offer a dessert menu. We had to ask and by the time the coffee came, the group of 6 had finished the little creme brûlée. Up to that point, everything was great. We were so embarrassed we couldn’t say anything. Very disappointed
Charming little place, nice decore.
It was a little noisy inside due to the music and everyone talking loud, but it was still romantic.
The menu was good, although I had Swordfish, not Pasta. They didn't have any Ravioli that wasn't pure vegetarian, which I would normally have liked, but was looking for something with more protein that night. It was delicious and very tender.
My date is on a Paleo diet, and was able to substitute a few things to stay away from that dreaded sugar. All in all, it was delicious. Would definitely go back.
Food is always excellent, service always friendly!! A must when in the South Bay!
Great food and friendly atmosphere. One of my favorite restaurants.
Awesome as always! Tranis is my “go to” dining experience! Old school, but always great food! So comfortable! Love love this restaurant!
Great local restaurant, but please bring back the grilled vegetable sandwich!
Excellent food, great drinks, reasonable price, very nice ambiance. Altogether a great restaurant.
Amazing service and delicious food!! We’ll be back soon 😊
Everything was delicious!! Calamari, sausage and prosciutto pizza, Ribeye, and “The Best” veal cutlet Parmesan was spectacular!!!
Great food, calamari is especially delicious. Wait staff is excellent, server was attentive and warm, we had a great experience. Love the updates they’ve made to the restaurant. Will definitely be returning soon.
We had a light dinner at the bar. Kristina is amazing. Trani’s salad with grilled shrimp. Yum. Thanks, Tranis.
I'm a repeat customer. Had a great experience before.
Service was excellent. We had Swordfish Melianase and the fish was generous in size and an inch thick. It was cooked medium and was wonderful. Have to say the recent Swordfish I had at Admiral Risty’s was ho-hum by comparison and cost $12 more!
Absolutely delicious every time! The calamari and truffle oil/pancetta pizza are two of our favorites. Great to share with a group for an appetizer or as a meal for two.
We had dinner there celebrating a landmark birthday for my wife. The food was great, the atmosphere was great and the service was great. The hostess greeted everyone with a smile and the warmth was felt throughout the service.
We made reservations thru Open table and was sat quickly after arriving What we noticed was whole lot of changes in the menu. But plenty to chose from. Our server was very accommodating in trying to inquire cook about some oldies but unfortunately they did not have reserves in the kitchen. People who are looking for original food from the past might be disappointed. My braised shank was delicious. Would have liked a little more risotto. My mom wanted to recommend the bread be cooked more. Thanks for a good night
Great food, service ambiance. Staff friendly and accommodating. Best fried calamari I have ever eaten!
Excellent food. Love the old pictures of San Pedro; not as crazy about the total brick decor. Musician was excellent and soft enough for conversation.
Highly recommend. Found it on Yelp and was chosen for the high reviews. Booked through Open Table with no problem. Food was absolutely delicious. Ambiance was comfortable and inviting. A little gem hidden away just off Harbor in a small neighborhood. Seemed like a “local” place which is always good. Will be returning
As always excellent food and service. Strongly recommend.
Overpriced for the quality of food served. We saw the reviews and they where positive. Maybe it was just an off night.
Great ribeye steak. Huge under $40.00 nice happy hour menu.
Love this restaurant
Trani’s is our place for all special occasions. We just took our daughter and husband from Temecula to celebrate her Masters Degree. It’s their new favorite place to eat. We will see you in April for our anniversary and May for Mother’s Day
We loved this restaurant. Been twice in two weeks, very good food and service.
The food was good. Our server was more than pleasant. One observation: with the prices they charge, I noticed no tableclothes.
our first valentine dinner in San Pedro, Ca, and our first visit to J Train's , our next visit (which won't be long) thank you J. Trani's we are really looking forward to the Linguini and clams in red sauce, this would make a Boston Native the happiest person in Pedro ... (a happy face)
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.
Our first time here. We will definitely come back again.
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!
Delicious food! I have never had a bad meal at Trani's.
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.
Very nice presentation of all the foods, we both love it and it does tastes good too. There’s a man playing guitar for our music.
