The menu listed a 2017 bottle of Austin Hope Paso Robles Cab for $60. However, the bottled opened and served was 2019 and the manager refused to acknowledge their mistake but instead blamed it on the distributor. The dinner (Osso Buco) was exceptional but the wine and the manager’s refusal to make an adjustment we’re not. I didn’t drink the opened bottle but paid for it anyway and tipped the kind and thoughtful waiter for the entire bill.

For an almost pre-pandemic experience, get yourself to Trabocco! They've been open almost continuously since June so they have the expertise to safely seat and serve guests. The menu is still large and interesting; we shared the roasted beet salad and the agnolotti con zucca before enjoying our separate entrees: the incredible fish stew and one of the fish specials, roasted salmon. Everything was excellent and we can't wait to go back.

Our table service was outstanding as always. The food was excellent as usual (Carpaccio and Sea Bass). The restaurant ambience great as even if you have a rowdy table in, you can still enjoy your conversation intimately.

I booked a table for two, a week in advance through Open table. When we got there we were seated in one of their lousiest tables. From my past experience, booking through Open Table, for the most part, they hold the best tables for me, this was definitely not the case here. We ended up asking to be moved to the bar area instead, as the inside dining was full due to social distancing. Other than the unacceptable customer service of the two hosts, the entire experience was superb. Food was high quality, and friendly service from the waiting staff. The cocktail drinks were phenomenal. Overall high marks but still don’t see the value in booking a table through the Open Table app, if I end up choosing to be seated at the bar area, as a better alternative to where I was seated.

Came here at the recommendation of a friend. Couldn’t have been more pleased with the food and the service we received!! We had a delicious salad, calamari, braised veal shank, a baked salmon dish, a pizza for the kid and we shared the flourless chocolate cake. The food was so good that I asked our server if he could ask the chef/owner to stop by so I could acknowledge him personally. He was super gracious and spent some time chatting with my family and I. We will definitely be back!

My friend and I celebrated our February birthdays since we couldn’t celebrate in February. We were seated outside where there were plenty of heaters, and tables were set far apart. The server was delightful, and the meals were delicious - we both ordered the steak. When I made the reservation I had indicated that we were celebrating our belated birthdays, so after we were done with dinner, the owner - Giuseppe brought out a beautifully decorated platter with 2 pieces of tiramisu - one on each end of the platter along with a candle fir each - and proceeded to sing happy birthday to us! Thank you Trabocco and Giuseppe for creating a special evening for me and my friend!!!

Trabocco is a known good! When service is available, we dine there almost every week, and have had everything on the menu. Can't make a bad choice here. Service, food, wine, cocktails, are dessert all excellent!! I always start off with their Basil Martini, just melts the stress away with every sip. And Chef stopping by to say hi is always a treat. We are customers for life!

Both the food and the service were superb. The timing of the dishes was perfect. We each had a salad, a main course, and dessert. Food appeared when we wanted it without having to ask. It did not come before we wanted it nor did we have to wait. My companion wanted one of the appetizers served over pasta -- not a problem. The waiter only asked what kind of pasta she wanted.

Food order was delayed because the waiter forgot to get the order going. I’m sure this a one off because we have been here many times BC and had excellent service.

The food and the service were superb, as always. However, we were cold and uncomfortable on the extended patio, unfortunately. The table was icy to the touch and too small, the folding chairs uncomfortable and awkward to move, the heaters too far from my chair to be felt. Food got cold quickly. Just so folks now who are planning something special. It was our wedding anniversary and we were expecting something a little more elegant, having eaten there many times, including on the inner patio with the bar, which is much nicer.
