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!

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.

Since the re-model, this previously good restaurant had become over-priced and not very good. We ordered the duck which she previously enjoyed, and they've ruined it. Big slabs of duck with a thick layer of fat and not very tender. We're not going back.

Excellent food and service. I love the refurbishing that was done. The wood tables and floors gave a very warm feeling and the great old family pictures brings back the history of the Trani family in our community. I’ve already booked our party for New Year’s Eve.

At first our server disappeared after seating and it took some time to order. We mentioned the delay to one of the managers and he was very attentive to making sure the rest of our dining experience was good. He did a great job and the food was excellent.

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.
