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.

In general we don't eat fancy often. So it was great to have a very good meal for this special occasion together. My seafood linguini came steaming hot - perfect. The mushroom risotto was good if you like risotto. The calamari appetizer was a hit with the college boys who happily shared a caesar salad and pizza.
Our server Amber was outstanding, checking in on us now & then. Very attentive.
Creme brulee and chocolate gelato with homemade marshmallow desserts were top notch.
Hope to return again soon...

I love the staff, and the food. J. Trani's has been in business for over 90 years (I just found out) and it's easy to understand why after tasting the food and interacting with the staff. They went above and beyond to ensure that my friend with dementia was catered to and that she had everything she needed to keep her calm and happy. Not easy with this person!

I took my friends to J. Trani's in San Pedro because I remember, as a kid in the 1960's, our neighbors (who were Italian) would go to Trani's for their special occasions. It was fantastic and we loved it. The restaurant has great ambience, our waiter was very gracious, and the food amazing. We live in Orange County but it would be worth the drive to visit Trani's again.

Not as good as I remembered it. The food was just OK. Our server (forgot her name but she has red hair) was very inattentive. With so many other good dining options, we will likely not be back

Dustin Trani is a class act. It is worth the trip to go to Trani's - the food is always amazing. His seafood is fresh and expertly prepared and they serve a great martini!

Never disappointed when we go to J. Trani's for a meal! It is our go to place when we have company from out of town, but also good anytime for just a drink and starter in the bar.

Party of 7 celebrating a birthday. Chef Dustin out did himself, as usual. Salmon, creme fraiche pizza, Thai chile calamari and Day made fresh mozzarella apps were outstanding. All guests raved about entrees, I had the porcini mushroom ravioli, wow. Burnt rosemary shortbread crumble and house made marshmallows over butterscotch panna cota topped off a perfect celebration. Don't miss the 'rocky road' mallo! OMG

Calamari was one of best I've had! Salad with strawberries delicious. Table also had grilled tuna and mushroom risotto which were very tasty! Good old school atmosphere!
