The two servers were great! Always refilling drinks and bread and always checking on us. The food is always Amazing! Had the special Squash Blossoms filled with ricotta and pine nuts, then followed with the beef lasagna. Finished with the freshly made tiramisu.
Can’t wait to go back!
Very good food. Gets crowded and noisy. Worth a visit.
Best in Encinitas
One of our all time favorites! We have been there several times.
The food and service was fabulous. We loved the complimentary bread and sauce, the minestrone soup, and lobster ravioli.
Fun, casual place for hearty traditional Italian food with big portions, reasonable prices and great service.
We have always had the best time and most delicious food at Trulli, so when my birthday came around it was there that I wanted to go - no disappointment!! We were seated right away; the wine came and was fresh and bright; a Chianti that they import; the bread and chilled fresh tomato garlic dipping sauce was the perfect appetizer. Jim had his favorite meaty lasagna perfectly done and proportioned and HOT from the oven. I had the orchiette with rapini and salsicca - the home-made sausage is rustic, mouth-watering and this dish is EPIC! They brought a birthday dessert and sang "happy birthday" to me. We are not dessert eaters but this strawberry Napoleon(?) was a riccotta cream and fresh strawberry delight of stacked pastry and light as a feather. SO GOOD!! The two that dined beside us had to order it after we raved. Fabulous and memorable food, atmosphere and service. Can't wait to go again!
Amazing food. Amazingly slow service.
Best real Italian food in north county. Nice place
Most excellent food and ditto on service!
Just returned from Italy & your pasta matches Como & Amalfi Coast. Yumm
Great service and a fantastic Italian meal... Would go back in a heartbeat !
Small cozy restaurant, indoor and front patio seating, overhead fans. (No air conditioning) We enjoyed the house salad which had a balsamic dressing, very tasty. Loved the flavor of my pasta dish but it had way to much Pancetta for my taste. Don’t remember the exact name of the dish but it was like a Carbonera, peas, bacon & pasta. My husband ordered was a pasta dish with sausage & garlic in a white-wine sauce. He enjoyed every bite. They also served homemade bread with a spicy tomato sauce for dipping. When we are in that area again we will definitely go back! They offered other Italian dishes besides pasta.
They let pied after us very well on our anniversary and we would return.
Awesome place, the food is fantastic and the service is just as impressive. The location is great as well. I will definitely be going back. The eggplant appetizer was absolutely delicious. To finish off a great meal the tiramisu was light and full of flavor.
Great food and it was nice to be able to have a conversation without it being too loud to hear.
Such a great neighborhood place. Food is always great no matter what you order, the wait staff are always so friendly and helpful, and this place just does it all the right way. Will be back again soon!
The food was wonderful! The ingredients were fresh and great detail and attention was put on each dish. The lobster ravioli was terrific! We will be back soon! The services was exceptional and quick! We went for a birthday and we were treated very well. Thank you!
Food was good. Waiters need to learn to pour wine,
We’ve been here before. Consistently good food. I especially love the tomato sauce with the bread. Great service.
Well done. The food was excellent the suggested wines were great. Overall a wonderful restaurant
Located in the heart of beach-town Encinitas, I Trulli has an extensive menu of pastas, seafood and fish, chicken and meats. Fish dishes are nicely seasoned (I had branzino and salmon on two visits). Good and reasonable wine list, friendly service.
Authentic Italian. Menu offers lots of options, making it hard to choose. Our waiter was friendly and jovial. Oliver dishes were fresh and delicious.
Although veal parm. was not on the menu they prepared it for me and it was the best I have ever had. It ws very much worth the 15 mile drive from Ocannside and we will be back.
Tasty food. Solid, quick and efficient service.
Enjoyed our 36th anniversary dinner. Our service was very good and our meal was lovely. We were there on a Monday, so not as crowded as on the weekends.
Great place. Food great. Especially southern Italian cuisines. Recommend highly
The seating is cramped. Too many tables stuffed into the main dining room. Also, the serve from the wait staff seemed hurried to get our order but then the food took a long time coming to the table.
The food itself was delicious. So, the back of the house is doing well. The front of the house needs to rethink their approach of the dining experience.
Our service was prompt and friendly. Wine list was good. Our meals were all very good.
Food was excellent....service was top notch Nothing to complain about at all. Great choice for Italian food!!
The food is always good, and the wine selection has a good variety.
Sophisticated Italian food, not fussy but imaginative, well-prepared dnd delicious. On the Coast Highway in Encinitas, I Trulli is a warm and inviting restaurant with a menu full of choices, fish and shellfish, pastas, meats and more accompanied by a strong wine list.
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.
