The chef-owner was table touching tables ensuring everything was going well. Great feel in the restaurant. Our waiter was effective. Great food and wine options, were visiting from Pennsylvania and so happy we found Trabocco.

This was my third visit to Trabocco and I'm from out of state. I will go there every opportunity i have when i'm in the area. Their menu is comprehensive, food is fresh and local, authentic and delicious Italian food (I'm Italian) and the service is outstanding. What more can i say?

Pappo is always outstanding: it never disappoints. My favorite cocktail is the Citronella, but this time I tried the Basil Martini: delicious! Great bar service: we ordered a couple of delicious appetizers as well. The owner greets everyone, and all the staff seem very happy to work there.

Trabocco in Southshore Center, is a wonderful dining destination. There were two of us for dinner. My choice was Osso Bucco. It was served with delicious polenta and spinach. The sauce on the meat was filled with mushrooms, carrots, and a fantastic array of spices. For dessert my choice was pumpkin Creme Brûlée. While I was a little skeptical about the pumpkin, it was light, delicious, and delightful.
The service was attentive and friendly without being pushy. Definitely looking forward to my next visit.

There are only so many words to say incredibly good food, terrific service, fabulous ambiance, wonderful chef. We truly appreciate how special we felt having the service staff engage with us and then having the chef stop by to chat. Every time I take clients and friends to this place, they are all very impressed and thankful that I introduced them to Trabocco.
How else can I say that this was a superb experience?

A friend lives in the area and suggested we meet at Trabocco. Because I am not familiar with Alameda, I had a hard time locating the restaurant. It's in a shopping mall and my GPS was not completely accurate with directions. Once I arrived, the service was very good. Our server immediately greeted us, explained the specials for the evening and offered further explanations where necessary. She was attentive and checked in with our group throughout the evening. I had sea bass, which was cooked perfectly. It was served with greens and polenta. The greens were good, but I didn't like the polenta -- it looked as though it had been sitting on the plate for a while. However, others in our party who ordered the same dish did not have the same impression of the polenta and I did.
Overall, the experience was very good. Service was excellent from the time we walked in until we left the restaurant. Food was served promptly. We were not rushed through the meal. I would return to Trabocco if I found myself in the area again.

This was my 2nd visit to Trabocco, and the food was equally good. The service was impeccable. I would however, ask for a different table, perhaps one "outside" so that it would be less noisy. I could not hear our waiter, and had to have husband translate. We were tucked in a corner, next to glass that separated us from the seats at the counter.

We recently moved to Alameda and wanted to try a restaurant nearby our new apartment. Trabocco fit the bill and we were so glad we came. I had a Squid ink risotto which was delicious and my wife's gnocchi was one of the better ones we have had in some time. Our server was helpful and courteous and we had a wonderful time.

Outstanding every time!
Besides the scrumptious food, 5 stars for the chef Giuseppe Naccarelli who makes it a point to walk around, chat with the diners and make each one feel special. His smile and attitude permeates among members of his staff who all see proud and happy to work there. It makes a huge difference to see people working together to make each dining experience a good one.

We were visiting Alameda (from New York) and sought a restaurant for a special occasion. Trabocco was recommended to us by our Alameda friends, both of whom are very successful and seem to have taste consistent with their success. What a wonderful recommendation! And as for Giuseppe, the owner-chef...!! What a HUGELY engaging personality is his. Oh, and did I mention the food was superb? Who would have expected to find this in Alameda...or is my NYC smugness, arrogance, and faux-sophistication showing?
Giuseppe is a great chef, not only for h ...
Giuseppe is a great chef, not only for his food, but for friendliness to patrons, humor and how well he has trained his staff. Staff are always friendly and efficient. The food is reliably the highest quality, varied and interesting. We have been personally welcomed by chef after just a few visits. The wine offerings are broad and moderately priced for the quality.
Overall, this is a fun restaurant where you are welcome as casual or fancy.
Don't be put off by the location in a shopping center: this is NOT a shopping-center-restaurant but gourmet dining in a welcoming atmosphere.
One suggestion is to have a printed list of specials, there are too many to keep track of!! what a great array of choices.

I love sitting up at the food bar and watching all the action! The sous chef, the grill guy, the wood burning oven, the plating of the food. Staff friendly. The owner greets everyone. The food is delicious and presentation amazing. good pizzas, tasty all fresh entrees, an extensive wine list...one of my favorite places!

The staff was very attentive. Food was delivered in a timely manner and delicious. We have eaten here a few times and always greeted at some point during the meal or as we leave by the chef himself. It is a great place for drinks and outdoor dining.

The food at Trabacco was just delicious. We had a great waiter, Marshall. Unfortunately the night we were there, there was a concert going on right across from the restaurant. It was
very noisy which I had not anticipated. We went for my sweetheart's birthday and he really
enjoyed it except for the loud music. We will try it again as the food was very good.

Overall an enjoyable dining experience. However, the noise level was pretty high which made it difficult to carry on a normal conversation. I would probably try it for lunch next time.
