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.

This is a fabulous local Alameda restaurant. These are difficult times for restaurants and Trabocco is no exception to that rule. In times past the restaurant would be packed almost every night. Now they are doing their best to adjust. They have done a very nice job of extending their patio and spacing tables to keep diners safe. The food is as good as ever. Terrific.

I have been here multiple times. The food and ambiance is never a let down. Very humble head chef creates delicious meals and greets every guest. I’m always raving about this place to my friends a coworkers and even bring some of them when I get the chance. I’m glad I stumbled on this place two years ago. The agnolotti di zucca will always be my favorite. I always ask what wine pairs nicely with my apps and entrees and the staff never disappoint me. 5 stars all the way for price, quality of the food, ambiance, and amazing staff. They have outdoor dining ( they have had it even before the pandemic). Definitely check this place out for yourself and support local restaurants!

We had a lovely time celebrating the retirement of our company’s owner and it was such a nice touch to have Chef create a special “congratulations” dessert plate. This has been, and always will be, our go-to special occasion restaurant in town. Thank you for delicious food, tasty cocktails and exceptional service.

I had the grilled chicken. It was way, way, way overcooked. Hard to cut. Fortunately, my dog liked it. Server (older Italian man) was slow and inattentive.

Much gratitude and appreciation to all the staff who made our brunch date pleasant and enjoyable. They were on point with their customer service. Everyone was so nice and friendly - I could tell they were smiling under their masks; we felt genuinely cared for and were checked on regularly. Really put a smile on my face to spend my Saturday afternoon here with my partner. Food was just as delicious as I remembered. Hadn’t been here for a while since I moved away from Alameda, but will definitely add Trabocco back into my restaurant rotation.

Outstanding service from all staff and especially the owner, always there to say hello and how are you. Food excellent always. We were seated outside as is the norm these days and away from the restaurant due the Covid 19 restrictions. This did not hinder their attention to you. Trabocco are doing a outstanding job looking after their customers. Thank you

March is the last time I had been to Trabucco so what a pleasure to have opportunity to meet two friends with leisure I am thrilled to get to order a martini and enjoy fantastic food but my two friends are health and calorie conscious - one had a beer and the other ordered a half of a beer - one had a salad and the other shared a salmon sandwich which the kitchen thoughtfully split - the quality of our time and the excellence of our food was beyond what any person would expect here on Alameda - I am so grateful Trabucco allowing outside dinning and I look forward to getting to return with my Marin friend I shared lunch - three courses! - with in March.

Sat outside during the pandemic. Caprese salad with burrata was creatively constructed and delicious. Fried squid and bolognese pasta were both fine but not great. Seafood stew was fine but a little too salty. Desserts were surprisingly good. Service was very pleasant, and was not fast, but that's okay because I was enjoying a leisurely dinner

B-Day. The waiter brought a complementary tiramisu. So sweet. Food was excellent. Outdoor seating is nice. Tables are far enough apart as are chairs. Some restaurants cheat on chair spacing. All around lovely dinner.

Delicious food keeps us coming back but what makes the place truly special is the owner/chef. This is clearly a guy who loves what he does and it comes through in everything about the restaurant. It was our anniversary and he personally delivered a complimentary tiramasu to our table. So glad Trabocco continues to thrive in these challenging times. A real Alameda treaure.
