    While we have visited Trilussa many times, the staff is always welcoming and accommodating. We especially enjoy the wait staff understands how to take orders so that the person serving understands which person at the table ordered each plate. There's none of the " Who ordered the..." No, they sim ply act like professional waiters we've encountered in Italy and elsewhere in Europe who take their jobs seriously and professionally. Great waitstaff! Great kitchen.

    We always enjoy dining at Trilussa due to the quality of food, the excellent service and the good ambiance. It always seems animated but happy and pleasant environment. And although it is way too hot to dine al fresco this time of year (August 2022), the view of the patio and its fountains is an additional benefit of visit.

    Seems really unfair that if you can’t get a seat in the bar area, there happy hours specials won’t apply for you. Particularly since very limited bar seating available.

    First time diner before a movie. Overall a very satisfying experience. We had an excellent server (Joshua) along with very competent support employees. Two rounds of drinks, served nice and quick and done well. I had a Citrus Salad -- very good, perhaps a little heavy on the dressing otherwise very good. I had a lasagne -- less satisfying. A bit too much pasta noodle layer and not enough of the sauce and cheese. But the flavors were very good and the serving quite large. Definitely will go back again.

    We really enjoyed our dinner tonight. We both ordered off the "Summer Special" menu and each chose an appetizer,, an Andreea, and a dessert. All was beautifully prepared and presented. The waiter was excellent. Our first time here, and we will definitely return.

    We are regulars at Trilussa, for happy hour (we love you, Marco the bartender), early dinner special (great selection, nice savings when order is in by 5:30pm), and full menu dining. We introduced some friends to the dinner special last night and our waiter, Joshua, was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Great job, Joshua. Calamari, carpaccio, and Trilussa tomatoes were a hit as appetizers. We all find the calamari to be as good as it gets in the desert--light yet tasty. Arrabiata pasta (choose your pasta with any sauce), the masa filet, and chicken marsala kept the good vibes going, as expected. Cheesecake, ice cream, and a cannoli completed the three courses, and Joshua brought tastes of amaretto and biscotti on the house as the topper!

    I visited your restaurant a few months back for a party in that closed room towards the back it was fabulous. So I brought my boyfriend there and paid for our dinner and we both enjoyed our self immensely. The only thing I was concerned about was they didn’t give us the little small shot of amaretto and the biscotti. I was most excited about having that but did not receive it. Not sure why. We had it when we had our party so maybe that’s the difference. That’s special touch means a lot to customers.

    To start off, right when we walked inside there’s a guitar guy playing music. We enjoyed that very much. We were given an olive tapenade with little pieces of bread that was very tasty. I had the filet mignon that came with 4 very small potatoes and a large pile of green beans. I’m not a green bean fan so that was a bummer. I didn’t choose them, the menu just said it came with potatoes and a vegetable. The filet was very good with a great wine sauce. My kids got pasta and that’s all they got, an on the smallish portion of pasta. They were glad we were given bread beforehand because I think they would’ve left still slightly hungry. Overall we had a good experience. Service was excellent.

    I had the eggplant parmesan and it was outstanding. Very thinly sliced eggplant cooked to perfection with the appropriate cheeses and sauce. My friend had the pasta primavera which she said the vegetables are so nicely presented in the dish. We went for the early dining menu (before 5:30pm). It was fantastic!

    One of my favorite restaurants in the desert , food never disappoints . I think they have a new front desk greeter and seat locator who needs more training right now .. several seats were open but we along with several other parties were made to wait past our allocated time . The staging took place 1) 2 people in a large 6 person booth , 2) 4 people squeezed on a small corner table . We were lucky our usual area (2 topper) until they squeezed a couple with an approx two year old, this was 8pm.. we will of course be back But not so easily led. Excellent food

    I like this place. It's a "locals" type of restaurant and I am glad it is here. However, the food is sloppy and the restaurant itself needs to update it's interior and clean up the food. On this visit, we were seated at a dirty table. Once that happens, you really start to look around and I did. The floors were dirty and some servers were sloppily dressed and not friendly. The Chicken Marsala I had was OK but the marinara on spaghetti tasted like TIN and not fresh. How hard is it to make FRESH marinara? Nobody likes sloppy Italian food-those places are everywhere. ADVICE: Par back the menu, use FRESH ingredients only, refresh the decor.
