I had dinner with a small group of friends for a birthday party. Excellent choice! The food was great and that was most important! There were a few specials and dishes that really sounded wonderful that we'll have to come back again for. The owner was a wonderful gentleman, he came out to sing happy birthday to our friend and exchange a few pleasantries! The pork chop, Trabocco Spaghetti and the burrata were our favorites.

We always love going to Trabocco for family dinners. The chef is so great at making everyone who walks in the door feel welcome. We think other chefs could learn a lot from him about creating a welcoming environment, plus the delicious food.
We recommend Trabocco to friends all the time. The food is consistent, the service good, and the dining room nice. Although we have never sat there, they do have a kitchen counter so that you can watch what happens in the kitchen, maybe one day we will.

We came for Valentine's dinner a day early since I work in the industry and will be serving Valentine's dinner on Valentine's Day. Service, ambiance, and food were all spot on. They had many specials that evening, yet the server did a great job of describing all of them. We had the burrata caprese which was simple yet flavorful. For entrees we had the daily risotto which was rabbit ragu and the steak. Every component, the risotto, potatoes, spinach, and steak was cooked perfectly. The wine list looked great but I ended up bringing a bottle of Frank Family sparkling rouge which perfectly complimented our meal. For dessert we had spumoni gelato which was a nice finish. The menu was simple and straightforward. I felt value in the experience and that is definitely something I'm always looking for in a meal.

Always a wonderful time at Trabocco! We love the outdoor (covered) tables as they are perfect for the kiddos (both experienced restaurant diners, but still young children). Staff is always accommodating modifying the menu to suit a picky 3 yo (plain noodles w evoo dipping sauce, please) and beyond that just so darn nice! Great food here at a reasonable price point, perfect for everything from family meals to date night.

The delicious eats (Oxtail Ravioli - Yes!) has been raved about before but the superb service my long time friend and I received did not go unnoticed - The perfect balance of knowing when to step in to assist and fall back allowing a table to simply enjoy their own moment is a rare art I've seen on display here. Scene was warm, patronage vibrant and I look forward to the next round.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Trabocco. What a pleasure to be greeted at the door by the owner, with an exuberant welcome. The service was good and the food was high quality. I really enjoyed the agnolotti with butternut squash, sage, and browned butter.

Always excellent! Two of us had the pork risotto and the other had the grilled salmon, and we shared the polio e patate appetizer. Everything was tasty, seasoned perfectly, and the service was spot on. Thanks Giuseppe for providing such a great dining experience.

Great as usual! Although I usually have one of the delicious pizzas, this time I went for the Branzino which was perfectly cooked and came with delicious rosemary roasted potatoes, roasted cauliflower and brussels. The staff are amazing, helpful and friendly. There's also an extensive outdoor eating area for when it's warm enough (it wasn't!) and a large bar with Italian wines and wines from local winery, Rockwall. Alameda doesn't have too many restaurants like this so I hope people continue to enjoy Trabocco for a long time!

We had been wanting to try Trabocco for some time and finally had our chance last Saturday night. The restaurant was already jumping at 6:45 when we arrived, with several people waiting in line for a table to open. We were seated promptly and had a fun waitress who impressed us with not only great service, but her memorization of a list of "specials" that was almost as long as the regular menu. We shared a salad, pizza and the pumpkin creme brûlée for dessert. Sounds simple and maybe boring, but it was anything but. Simply delicious. Accompanied by a couple glasses of Nero D'Avola wine, it was a perfect meal. We will be back!

My husband and I came to Trabocco for the first time Saturday evening. I made our reservation through the OpenTable app for 6:15 and when we arrived at the restaurant we were seated right away. Our server, Katherine, was friendly, knowledgeable and made our dining experience enjoyable!
The food at Trabocco is amazing! Chef Giuseppe, is wonderful at creating an Italian menu with a twist! We truly enjoyed our entrées & drinks and the desserts are amazing as well!

Been here a few times and it's always great. Tasty food, good service. We sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen. The extremely charismatic owner/head chef has been there every time and is friendly and welcoming to everyone who sits down by cracking jokes and offering ebullient and hearty greetings while also manning the pizza oven.

Food is delicious, classy inside even though it's located in the mall. I think being in the mall makes it convenient and easy to park! Usually when I have eaten dinner here the food arrives in a reasonable amount of time, but lunch really took a long time and not sure why since restaurant wasn't full. So except for that I would have given 5 stars instead. Wait staff is always great. Didn't see the chef/owner this time but I do like that he generally takes a minute to say hello to the guests. Again, the food is really delicious!

Our first trip to Trabocco. great energy and vibe. It is noisy and not a great place for kids, although there were a few. 3 tables celebrated birthday so certainly could be a special occasion place for you.
Loved the décor. Huge & tall atrium space open to a skylight.
The waiters and servers really seemed to work as a team and hop. They were quick!
The vegetarian lasagna was very light and cheesy. there were fewer layers of noodles and more cheese and veggies. Nice touch and a bit unique. My wife enjoyed the grilled sea bass which was deliver with the whole fish. I enjoined the pasta Bolognese. Very nice, and generous portion.
We would defineately return, special occasion or not

just wanted to drive sunday, asked google for italian restaurant in alameda and we choose Trabocco. loved our visit to the restaurant, shopping and the beach. My pasta was cooked well and tasty, good cocktail list, friendly staff, pizza looked yummy coming out of the wood oven.

Server was completely disengaged and never made eye contact or noticed when we needed another drink. Had to summons him for everything. Such a disappointment as it's apparent the owner/chef cares so much about his patrons -- greeting them personally both times we have dined when visiting on business. I will continue to come back but hope the wait staff gets in line with ownership.

Went to Trabocco for my BDay with spouse and 3 friends. I had been there before, none of the others had eaten there previously. They all declared it some of the best Italian food in the Bay Area. It was truly delicious and I'm looking forward to returning soon!

Dined here for the first time at the suggestion of a friend, it is very loud, off the top, but the food is well prepared, the cocktails are tasty, and we had good service. Enjoyed the octopus, beet salad, agnolotti, chicken, and the panna cotta along with the chocolate cake. If in the area, we'd go back.
