Excellent service. Great drinks. Wide variety menu. Polenta could have been better, risotto could have had more frutti di mare.

My only complaint was that even though we had reservations we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. That may have been due to some inconsiderate customers who dawdled after dinner.

Always pretty consistent. Hostess and Server excellent! Wine list needed to be updated with correct vintages but I understand it’s hard to keep up during these difficult times. Love the chef/owner and how he and his staff are always very welcoming.

Brought my elderly aunt to lunch. She was craving steak -A nice New York strip. Chef grilled one up for her even though it’s not on the menu. That made her day. Thanks Chef! Food here never disappoints.

The food was very good - everything I was expecting based on word-of-mouth from other people. If I had one comment to make, I think the kitchen could cut back on some of the salt used. Deliciously flavored food, but a little on the salty side.

Marshall was our server. He was excellent!!!!We we’re astounded by his description of all the specials…it was amazing. Food was superb. We celebrated our daughter’s 31st birthday and they presented her with a gorgeous display of “Happy Birthday” wishes onto the platter…with her chosen creme brûlée. We loved every part of our meal celebration.

The entire menu looked great and our server offered so many special dishes, it was hard to decide what to get. My friend and I ultimately ordered the grilled octopus starter, which was amazing, seafood stew, and grilled rib eye. Tiramisu was an awesome choice for dessert.

We will definitely go back to try their home made pastas and pizza next time.

Food, service and ambiance as excellent as before covid. 3 adults 1 toddler outside seating for birthday lunch. Very comfortable & spacious. Grilled octopus w/potatoes, fried calamari, beet & watercress salad, oxtail ravioli, pasta stuffed w/butternut squash, ossobucco, tiramisu, zabaglione w/fresh berries, and espresso over gelato were all amazing! Delicious and beautifully presented. Very warm, gracious & efficient service.

Food, drinks and atmosphere are excellent. We sat at the kitchen bar and enjoyed learning from chef Gillespie, who's also the owner. He was very friendly and attentive.

The olives are the best I've ever had and the carpaccio is really good as was the barratta caprese. I felt the pork belly could have used a bit more seasoning and rendered a bit more but still excellent as were the lamb skewers.

Probably the best part was the whole grilled fish with cherry tomato compote. Again, I prefer a bit more salt but that's me. Still excellent and perfectly cooked.

Great cappuccinos and the flourless chocolate cake was creamy and delicious.

This was my third time at Trobacco and likely my last. I have friends who rave about it and travel from other parts of the Bay to come eat here. However, none of the times I’ve eaten here have I been impressed. The pizzas are not great, although they should be and I hate that thawed are served uncut and one is given a huge clumsy cutting tool which take up a lot of small table real estate. The waiter has handled it and now so will you as well as the pizza you will be putting in your mouth. Our waiter also had just previously touched his mask with the same hand.he was very charming and dramatic while telling us of the specials and was pretty quick to bring more drinks for my friend, but I was never offered a refill of iced tea or any kind of sweetener. I asked for more ice which should have come out with my friends second Chardonnay but I had to ask a second time it was a very hot day and we were seated in a tent which was not at all cool and had zero ambience. My pizza needed flavor...no salt to be found anywhere...asked for red pepper flakes but was almost done by the time they arrived. We ordered calamari which also had no taste. Fried well and not oily but tasteless as was the marinara served on the side.
Nearly $100 for a tasteless pizza, calamari appetizer, a tomato and arugula salad and 2 drinks. I’d rather drive into SF and have a real Italian meal in a place that isn’t in a suburban shopping mall
