Nice traditional place with friendly service and great food. Don't miss the octopus salad!
Very nice for a birthday dinner. Grilled calamari was outstanding
A great hometown feeling restaurant! Loved it and would definitely go back!
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...
Wonderful service -we sat at the bar
Hostess was very attentive
Had the octopus app and it was fantastic!!
Ribeye cooked to perfection (if you consider rare cooked) perfect seasoned too!!!
Great food! Our group had chicken Marsala, short ribs, linguine with scallops and crab spaghetti. All excellent.
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!
Lovely evening filled with tasty food (salad, pasta, dessert, wine) with good service. The memory of this evening makes me want to return tonight!
It was amazing! I loved it! The food wowed me-the sword fish especially!
So delicious and staff is super friendly. Second time in a month. Loved it again!
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.
Bar music a little loud, but OK. Service was great!
Trani's does not disappoint. What a great place to celebrate a quiet birthday. The staff is attentive. Love the Swordfish. Done to perfection. Will return again and again.
Friendly service, great food. The best calamari.
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!
