Sat outside for lunch; portable heaters made it comfortable despite breezy day. Started with beet salad; excellent as always. Greatly appreciated kitchen splitting it for us--hate when you're just handed an extra plate and it's DIY. Oxtail ravioli was very good; glad to see it is now a regular item on the menu. Liked that the chef went back to a lighter sauce with it; it's quite filling and doesn't need a rich sauce. Spouse had the del Trabocco seafood sauce but with gnocchi instead of pasta by request. Seafood was fresh and a good amount. Marinara very tasty. Finished with the zabaglione - our fav dessert at Trabocco; they make it with Marsala and fresh berries and it's the most luscious soft custard you've ever eaten! Service excellent as always. We are happy that Trabocco has continued serving lunch; so many restaurants have dropped it as less profitable.

Perfect as usual! We ordered four different entrées and a bottle of wine. Everything was prepared to perfection! Attached is a photo of my favorite all-time go-to dish at this restaurant. Try the Piatto Trabocco if you love grilled seafood and spinach.

We had a great time! I was very surprised and impressed with the host who changed our table on their own so I could feel more comfortable (I'm very tall and they felt that I was crammed in a 2 seater table ). The waiter was funny and charming and never rushed us. Beautiful and warm outdoor seating. Great drinks great food - the pizza and salmon were both exceptional. A minor thing- Tiramisu was ok, nothing to write home about. But I would definitely go back and definitely recommend.

It was my wife’s Birthday and I had made my reservation 2 weeks in advance. They sat us in a corner table for two. I asked to be moved—which the owner happily accommodated. We just were moved two tables from where we were. I’m sure covid has something to do with that. Service and food was outstanding. The chef even came to sing my wife happy birthday. Overall good experience.

Giuseppe, the owner, makes a point of coming around and greeting all of the customers. The food never disappoints! My favorite for lunch is the panino salmone.. it’s is a generous sandwich with arugula and tomato with pesto on a ciabatta rolls, watercress salad and French fries.. lots of food. Everything tastes fresh. The restaurant has COVID-19:protocols in place .. outdoor dining with tables spaced apart.Our dining experience was relaxing as we were celebrating a birthday. The flourless chocolate cake was like eating a deep dark rich piece of fudge!

Overall all wonderful dining experience for a family of 5. Our server Marshal was absolutely on point with his recommendations from the vino thru deserts! The rib eye was a generous cut that was seared/grilled beautifully to a med/rare but the actual cut was not as aged as advertised and choice as I had hoped for- but nonetheless, it was tasty. T
The burrata appetizer over heirloom garden fresh basil/ tomatoes was absolutely fantastic!! Lastly, the lasagna was as good as any if better than mom’s!!
One minor critique and not a criticism, is that it never hurts to have a little candlelight at dinner - but no candlelight available in an Italian restaurant... maybe next time.

It was great to be eating in a restaurant again, and Trabocco does everything very well. We split a salad that featured grilled pears, and then we each had salmon. Hers was grilled, and mine was baked; both were excellent. And the desserts were wonderful as well. My wife had an affogato -- they don't call it that, but it was espresso over vanilla ice cream. I had spumoni ice cream. All was great.

Just wonderful food. The seafood stew/soup is beyond outstanding. The other dishes at our table, the risotto of the day and the agnolotti in squash purée were also fabulous. Salad of the season, Inverniale, was shared and very fresh and lovely. The Aglianico went seamlessly with our food. The inside eating space is too spare and devoid of decoration to be inviting. However the outdoor areas are quite welcoming and nicely lit and warmed—more preferable to my taste. Waitstaff is excellent and well trained. Total surprise was the gorgeously presented tiramisu as a treat for my birthday. Though I don’t eat sweets I had a bite of this confection and it was quite excellent and not too sweet. Nice people, safe environment, plenty of close parking and well...the just wonderful food!

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.

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.

Food was wonderful, as always. Staff seemed a bit frazzled, but who isn’t these days, with all the Covid craziness?! The outside heating towers were a nice addition & they’ve even expanded seating across the courtyard, it’s lovely!

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!!!
