We had a lovely meal with great service from Oscar outside on the patio. As always the chef/owner greeted us as we entered the restaurant and then again as we left. A relaxing evening without the hassle of getting into San Francisco. Reminded us that we need to visit there more often.

Trabocco e' uno dei ristoranti piu belli nel Bay Area! Our dining experience was excellent. We had a late lunch/early dinner seating. The space is immaculate. We had the rib eye, osso bucco, and branzino entrees. Everything was cooked to perfection and seasoned so delicately. The wait service was fast and efficient and very knowledgeable about the menu and were ready to help with a wine suggestion. We will definitely come back again.

The food was fantastic! THE ambience was perfect! Perhaps our server had more tables than he could handle because the service was subpar. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant.

This was our anniversary dinner and the second one we have had at Trabocco. We enjoyed our previous visits a lot more.

I asked to be outside, but had no idea how wrong that decision was.

We were put at a tiny round table, one you might find in front of a coffee shop; a table where you might put 2 cups of coffee on it and little if anything else. It was very cramped during dinner.

Along the walls of where we sat were barriers that looked like they came directly from a construction site. They were dirty and had lots of tape on it to apparently hide holes and tears.

The food was far to good, depending on what was ordered. The prices are at the high end.

As I was sitting there, waiting for the dinner to end so I could get out of there...I thought about the 3 other restaurants that I considered for our dinner. I wished I had gone elsewhere.

We did get a free tiramisu for an anniversary dessert, which was nice.

We were a party of 3 adults and 1 child. We had an appetizer, salad, a side and 3 entrees . Also., child's order of pasta and a drink. Adults had wine. Everyone enjoyed the food and drinks. It was a birthday dinner, we all enjoyed the complimentary dessert. Our main server was not as attentive as we felt he should have been. Did not ask if our meal was okay or enjoyed. We had to ask him about one dish that was not served after all items came out for awhile already. We think he forgot to put that order in. Overall, we will be back to enjoy again!!

I can never give enough praise to Chef Giuseppe Naccarelli. The food and service is superb. The ambience is relaxing. The energy is high. The staff under the kind and expert supervision of Chef Naccarelli give excellent service. I forgot my server's name but he was wonderful. I was there around 6 pm on 9/1/21. The team of staff work together so well. You don't have to wait or wonder about what you need. I don't get there as often as I want to but it is alway my go to for celebrations. Thanks again.

Trabocco is our favorite restaurant in Alameda. The staff is excellent, the food is yummy & authentic, and there is plenty of outdoor seating with heaters. The chef/owner is also constantly donating his time and cooking talents to community causes. It’s just a great restaurant all around!

Lovely place to dine in Alameda. Very nice presentation and an informed and friendly wait staff, but still approachable and not at all pretentious. The food was lovely and the outdoor seating was a very nice touch. My wife and I are thrilled to have a nice date spot so close to our spot.

In addition, it's located inside South Shore Center shopping mall, so parking is easy and there's plenty to do before or after dining.

We ordered:
Polipo e Patate
Caprese (special)
Lasagna
Rib eye (special)
Tiramisu

We came here for my 60th. The online system wouldn't allow us to get a reservation for 6 due to a big party before us. They said try to show up as a walk-in and they would try to accommodate. That they did. All of the service and food were excellent with special mention to the gnocchi and all of the pastas we had and our server, Oscar who was extremely attentive. We had one vegan eater and he made anything she wanted vegan edible. This was going above and beyond especially during busy hours. My vodka martini was excellent and the wine list was good. I had the Creme brûlée and that was quite good too.

Nice job Trabocco keep it up.

Our waiter the silver fox was awesome. We really enjoyed him and the ambiance. I have a nut allergy and he was excellent at making sure nothing I had would affect me. The drinks were delicious as well as the food. I really enjoyed the pacing of dinner, the quality and not being rushed out. We will be back for sure!

I feel like a broken record when I say this but Giuseppe and his marvelous staff provide an end to end wonderful experience. We had our regular beet salad and margarita pizza because we were eating light. The Campari spritzer is my favorite, but they have a great selection of wine and cocktails. They take good care about being safe and masked up, with social distance between tables, and you can dine indoors or outdoors. If there’s anyone in the area that hasn’t gone to Trabocco already, who are you? :)

I understand that at this time many patrons wish to sit outdoors; and, Trabucco has attempted to accommodate this. However, the white plastic material used to creat a "wall" is tacky and feels like eating in a construction zone. Food and service are still very good.

Trabocco is still the best Italian restaurant in the SF Bay Area! Chef-owner Giuseppe Naccarelli greets every customer and makes them feel at home. His staff is attentive and the cuisine and drinks are outstanding. My family has been dining here for many occasions (birthdays, graduations, date nights) and our experiences have all been wonderful! Highly recommend to anyone who wants the best in Italian cuisine.
