    Get the pizza. Any pizza. They're all fabulous! My favorite is the Rapini e Salsiccia. Spicy Italian sausage, broccoli rabe, tomato sauce, fior di latte.

    Our fifth and, sadly, last time at Trobacco. We have been settling my mother-in-law's estate in the Alameda area, and on our first visit, we discovered this incredible place. The food (on all five visits) has been incredible. We have never had a single thing we didn't love. Last night was no exception. Our server was someone we had had before and he did his usual excellent job. We will miss this place. It's one of three places we have gone back to numerous times in our four trips to the Alameda area.

    Service and hostess were great , it was busy but still not too loud , ordered tow specials , mixed grill seafood platter and short ribs . Fish was just ok and a bit soggy , short ribs were cooked to a consistency that had no substance and very fatty . Flavor was just ok . Still a decent experience but would not recommend going off main menu . Other items passing us looked much better .

    We always enjoy our meals at Trabocco and this time was no exception. Although the menu has so much good food to offer, the Piatti Trabocco is my go to dish and it did not disappoint. The ambiance is nice and relaxing. We never feel rushed. This was one of our birthday celebrations and Giseppe graced us with a tiramisu cake and his birthday song. This is a wonderful neighborhood gem for special occasions or just an everyday meal.

    First, the wait staff was excellent - informative, attentive but not intrusive. The cocktails were tasty - although my basil martini could have used more St. George Botanivore gin. My problem is with the food. I ordered a salad with pear and pecan and gorgonzola. There was literally no dressing on the salad, and the pear slices were bitter and small and overcooked. The cheese was cubed, as opposed to crumbled, so even less flavor was dispersed. I had the vegan soup - mushrooms and cauliflower - tasteless. My husband had the lasagna which was meh. Our friends had the branzino, fish platter, and salmon. Well, we did eat all of our food, but nothing was good enough to merit a return trip to the restaurant.

    Trabocco is our "Go To" spot when we celebrate special occasions or when we want to treat ourselves to outstanding food, service, and ambiance. Whether we are in their cocktail lounge or in the restaurant, the level of service and quality of food and drink is outstanding. Trabocco's menu has a wide variety of offerings that will make everyone happy and the prices are surprisingly modest for the high quality of the meals. All in all Trabocco is an incredible dining experience.

    Great place for a nice lunch in Alameda. Celebrating the birthday of a dear friend. Super helpful server, leading us through the many choices. The chef prepared a special platter with a slice of birthday cake, 2 candles, & happy birthday written in chocolate. What's not to like? And did you know Chef can sing as well??!
