Have always had good meals here. Unfortunately, this last time my steak, although correctly cooked was very tough.

The red haired hostess was extremely rude to me qnd my guest and we wondered if it was becuase we were people of color. We left due to her ungracious behavior. I used to come to here regularly. No longer will I come here or hold any of my social gatherings here sadly.

Hands down, THE BEST PLACE YO EAT! This continues to be our restaurant of choice! We drive from Green Valley, Fairfield area and have tried other places but nothing beats Trabocco! We’ve eaten here since November 2014 when Wade first lived in Alameda. The food is amazing, consistent and always delicious. Giuseppe and his crew are the friendliest and always give top service and care. They make you feel like family! We have our favorite dishes but everything we’ve ever ordered is always so tasty and fresh. Our family highly recommends this restaurant. You will not regret it and we guarantee you will be back. Ambiance is special and is romantic too! IThank you Trabocco for providing a great place to dine:) We love it!!!

Had pizza, caesar salad, and carpaccio. Pizza was adequate, not bad not particularly tasty. Caesar salad was good though I should have asked for a little less dressing. The Carpaccio was nice. The meat was good with the average size serving, lots of arugula, I always ask for a little bit of chopped onion and they had the a moderate amount of capers and I also asked for a little bit of mustard and they brought me a ton of mustard but not on the play but in a little ramekin. This was my second time there been I remember the food is being better the first time but then it was indoors non-Trump Virus times. For an Italian restaurant the wine list was way too heavily weighted towards California wines.

Our dinner at Trabacco was a wonderful experience. We felt comfortable and safe sitting in their expansive patio area. The food was delicious and the service was great. We were not rushed at all, and able to enjoy a some fine wine and relaxing meal with old friends. Highly recommended to all.

Trabocco is lucky enough to have plenty of outdoor seating since they're in an outdoor mall. I went in a group of three on a nice night so it was warm enough. The service was attentive but not too much so. Portions were generous but not excessive, and we felt like the meal was a good value.

One in our party was vegetarian and there were plenty of choices for her.

As always, Trabocco didn't disappoint. We sat outside and had a wonderful dinner including appetizers, cocktails, wine and dessert. The food was delicious, and they've done a great job incorporating additional common areas to their existing outdoor space. It was a bit cold, but with the heaters they provided, and our jackets, it wasn't too bad at all. I highly recommend Trabocco!

Nice ambience, considering we were outside due to COVID.
However, the heaters were either not high enough or close enough to maintain warmth in the area. The server was nice enough to get a mini heater for our table. The food was delish, as was the drinks. Would highly recommend for any type of dining.

My husband and I went here for date night. My husband had the fettuccine Bolognese and I had the risotto of the day. The risotto had like a squid ink sauce with shrimp and calamari. It was so darn delicious. We had Chianti along with both of our meals. The bread is to die for! We can’t wait to come back!

Food was pretty good - my wood fired chicken however was not completely cooked
Our main issue was the service - just really lacking in finesse, not what we were expecting.
Food got removed without us finishing it twice additionally we were not allowed to get our chairs closer to each other, even though the place was empty but the main issue was how rude they were about it. Just really disappointed - we would have just left but I was hungry.
We’ll go to other Italian places that are just as good but less full of themselves

We sat outside at a socially distanced table from others. The server was knowledgeable about the gluten free options. Was very tasty! Love their non-alcoholic spritz options for a lunch mocktail. Very fresh ingredients all around. A little pricey but a nice treat yourself lunch/dinner! fantastic date spot

Just excellent real Italian food. Not “American Italian” swimming in too much sauce. Ingredients shine, everything is very fresh and perfectly prepared. Service is friendly and accommodating. My favorite dish is Piatto del Trabocco, grilled prawns, scallops and calamari, and tomatoes lightly dressed with olive and served with sautéed spinach. It is so good I order it every time I go, now! Also good: the octopus and potato appetizer, and the green olives with ricotta and almonds. Sometimes they have Osso Bucco! It is the kind of place where you may see your friends, too.
