By far one of the best restaurants in the area! The food is 5-star+ Small restaurant with great staff and Italian ambiance! If you want excellent food and excellent service go there! If you want big booths and average food I’d avoid it. High quality in all aspects. NOT high priced. You won’t regret going there - call ahead or reserve as it’s not a big restaurant.
We chose to sit outside. The service was exactly how we like it, quick and friendly. We had lobster ravioli in a saffron sauce. It was perfect, and penne with eggplant very tasty.
Réservation for 6 at 8 pm waited till 835 pm To get our table then15 minutes before the waiter came to the table for drink or food order . Been going here for years my 3rd time in the last month. No apologies or even an offer of dessert or anything for a bad experience.
Too bad I enjoyed going there they could of turned a bad situation into a positive one but chose not too
Good luck trattoria trulli.
Great bass;fatty tasteless veal chop in watery Demi-glace sauce.Worst service ever.
Food and service was great. Timing of food service was fabulous. Got a table outside which was nice. We were early but they still got let us sit early. Great value.
We had a wonderful birthday celebration and the food was fabulous for us all!
iTrulli is just THE best! There are all the classics and wonderful specials available each time we come in for dinner. Our servers have been the same for at least 20 years and treat us like family.
Outstanding Italian food in North county. The seafood was fresh, wine prices are reasonable, and has a good vibe.
I have been to I Trulli many times, and have never been anything but very satisfied. This time, my friend and I shared the eggplant appetizer which was the best I have ever had anywhere. The staff is lovely - attentive, but not intrusive.
So much flavor from start to finish. Great birthday dinner, with wine, dinner and dessert... Yummy!
Warm, inviting dining room with attractive stencils painted on walls. Can have a relaxing family dinner and carry on a conversation without
noise. Food was fresh, delicious and light. Homemade pasta ravioli and bolognese sauce were especially tasty.
Love this place!
All very good except for loud motorcycles every 9 mins
Good food, good wine, a cozy nook to enjoy conversation in a pleasant atmosphere
We were in north county, so we decided to try the restaurant. The food was delicious and expertly prepared, especially the burrata bellina. The service was outstanding as well. We will be back when in the neighborhood.
One of our faves, always good food and service in an intimate setting.
The ravioli are amazing. I had the lobster ravioli with saffron and it was no filler, all lobster, and extremely filling. My date got the regular ravioli and they were even better.
The food was delicious and the service was fantastic! Our servers were knowledgeable and super friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant! (Glad I brought a sweater because the front doors and windows were open, the ceiling fans were running, and it was a little cool.)
Quaint, little Italian place on the 101 in Encinitas. It's a family favorite!
Went for lunch on Mother’s Day. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Highly recommend!
Server missed the antipasti we asked for. Salad had weird red tasteless dressing, we hardly ate any but plates were cleared without asking why we left it. The veal chop was tasty but the halibut was mushy, not fresh & drowned in a tasteless canned red sauce. They didn’t charge for the halibut. The veg was way overcooked too.
Noise level was very very loud. We’re not going back.
I made reservations two months in advance for my 40th birthday. I also let them know it was for a birthday dinner. While the food is amazing I felt unimportant and almost like our waiter was impatient. Had to wait 20 minutes between ordering appetizers and main course, eating over our menus. Glasses had lipstick stains, drinks were flat, and they didn't clear the table often, which got quite crowded for 8 people. Also forgot to give us a to go box of ravioli! Was so sad when we got home. Love the food but if you have a large party, I wouldn't recommend them. My next birthday will be somewhere else.
Love this restaurant. It has become our go-to place when there is a special occassion or people in from out of town. It truly is a neighborhood gem.
Delicious homemade ravioli - large portions. Quiet enough ambiance for talking, yet lively and comfortable. Excellent service! Recommend the side of sautéed Swiss chard - perfect with the ravioli. And squash blossoms if they're in the menu!
first visit in a few years. the seafood and linguini was disappointing - shrimp way overcooked. same for the lamb
Great Italian food. We had two different veal dishes and both were great. Reservations are recommended, this restaurant is busy with quite a following.
Best Italian food in North County SD and that’s saying a lot!
I Trulli is wonderful, with a fabulous menu and wine list. Park in a small attached lot to avoid being ticketed in the 2-hour street parking spaces. One of the best restaurants I have ever visited, anywhere!
Very attentive waiters and staff. We had a delicious meal and we checked on the appropriate amount of time, without feeling interrupted. Get there early on weekends if you want a more quiet dining experience. Small but quaint atmosphere. Will definitely return!
As always a great meal with great service. As always, the husband wanted an off menu selection and they always accommofate.
This small neighborhood gem always delivers. Great for lunch or dinner!
Would definitely recommend this restaurant - started off with the calamari and zucchini appetizer and then had the veal chop which was delicious - prices are quite reasonable for the type and quality of food ...
Good food. Good service. Spinach salad with the rabbit is great.
exceptional service, great wine selection, wonderful food
Consistently good food and service
This is my go to restaurant whenever I am in north county SD. It is a treat I look forward to every time.
Outstanding food, comfortable environment and great wait staff.
The go to place in Encinitas for excellent Italian food. Excellent
