Dined outside on Saturday evening. Plenty of heaters to keep you warm if you want. Food is always delicious here...The shrimp Diavolo with linguine pasta is excellent and you will love the tomato based dipping sauce they serve with bread. Service is prompt and they are SO happy to be open again!

Love this restaurant and can never get there enough. Food is wonderful and they are keeping everyone at safe distances. We ate outside which was fine with the heaters that they have but it was a bit noisy with the cars going by. The great food and friendliness of the staff easily made up for the noise.

Trattoria i Trulli is a classic authentic Italian restaurant with an amazing selection of true Italian dishes. ALL of their food is amazing, and their staff is totally on point with excellent service... And don't forget to order a side of their house dressing for dipping their fresh bread in.

I'm so glad that this restaurant is doing okay during the pandemic. I have eaten here maybe 4 or 5 times and can say with certainty that everyone with whom I've dined has enjoyed the food immensely. The staff is also wonderful and primarily outdoor seating decreases the noise level substantially. Overall, the food and service are fantastic and well worth a visit. Let's make sure we do what we can to be sure that neighborhood jems like Trulli survive and thrive for years to come.

We were celebrating my wife’s 55th birthday and everyone really enjoyed their food from the appetizers all the way through desert. The service was exceptional we will definitely be going back very soon for some lobster raviolis.

We love their lasagna and side salad. We always receive excellent service. We discovered this place, when we were looking for options for take-out food. We started with that option but now dine-in but we do sit outside.

Considering this was eating under Covid restrictions, we felt the restaurant did a wonderful job. Noise along a highway is hard to control, but we felt comfortable and could easily converse. Our server Nadia was very attentive and had excellent recommendations. Can't wait to go back again and have more things from the menu (though I'd be happy having the same thing over again).

This was my favorite restaurant when I lived in Encinitas. I wasn’t sure if the quality would be the same after 7 years away and due to Covid. But the food seemed better than before. I only wish I could find Italian I like as well in San Francisco, where I live now.

Started with bread and the best spicy marinara for dipping I've been served.
Ended with a surprise complimentary huge slice of strawberry cream something cake ,which again was out of this world.
Everything in between equally delicious.
Super friendly service.
My new favorite in Encinitas.

Because we're experiencing Covid restrictions, we were seated outside which was an excellent choice. The waitstaff wore masks and followed social distancing protocols at all times. As usual, the food was excellent.
