Trabocco Ratings and Reviews

Trabucco has been our go-to for special events since we discovered it a couple of years ago. The meal prep and its ingredients are absolutely tier 1. Certainly competitive with many (but not all) of the tier 1 spots in San Francisco, but of course easier to get to, easier to find parking, easy access to public transit, staff and management who are less uptight, and more family-friendly. They make their own pasta, and you can watch the process through a window next to the kitchen. It's a wonderful place to go. And the wait-staff are very personable and helpful and knowledgeable.

Wonderful food and great time for a friend's birthday! The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. The oxtail ravioli flavorful and obviously slow cooked, yet al dente. The seafood risotto fresh and tasty. The salmon was simple, but well prepared. Dessert was pretty traditional, but nothing wrong with a yummy flour-less chocolate cake & zabaglione w berries!

Trabocco is always 5-stars! We dined outside on the patio (heaters in January) and watched the world go by. I had the grilled prawns, scallops, and calamari over greens and beans with an olive oil and lemon dressing - excellent! My boyfriend had the salmon - also excellent! We had coffee and shared the flourless chocolate cake for dessert (very decadent and yummy). The waiter was superb and the owner came over to say hello to all the diners. The best dining experience in Alameda.

New to Alameda, we chose Trabocco for our celebration based on the recommendations of friends who are long time Alameda residents. From the beginning the staff was marvelous. I thought the timing of the dishes and extras was impeccable. It was a birthday dinner. Four of us celebrating my fiancé's birthday which included not one but two visits by the Executive Chief/owner..... Giuseppe was a very gracious host to us all. I was especially intrigued by the seafood risotto squid ink infused with scallops, shrimps & calamari but when our waiter offered to add baby octopus to the mix I had to try. Truly enjoyed this dish which I might not had order on my first visit to another restaurant but Trabocco inspires like no other we've found; so far.....

My daughter is a huge fan of the oxtail ravioli and the tiramisu! We celebrated her 8th birthday with a friend and we were treated like royalty. Giuseppe takes great pride in his menu and is always so warm and welcoming. We have been huge fans since the inception. The restaurant feels like a little slice of New York in our little Alameda town!

This is the best Italian restaurant in the Bay Area hands down! The staff and owner of the restaurant are the best people, they really care about their customers. You get fine dining with excellent unique dishes at a reasonable price. The wine selection is amazing! Love this place!

We have all been to Trabocco several times before, and always enjoyed the experience. This last time was different. We had horrible service and it ruined our entire experience, which was to celebrate a friend's birthday.
Our waiter was not only lax, he was often rude and aggressive. He made many mistakes on the order (probably because he didn't write anything down), and instead of taking responsibility, he got aggressive and nasty.
We will not be returning to Trabocco - because of this horrible experience.

Pleasant lunch with good service and food. Some dishes were very good others average. There were 4 of us. We shared an octopus appetizer which was excellent. Main dishes were : sliced pork and onion panini which too fatty; shrimp and rice pilaf which was described as very good; shrimp and octopus over spinach described as very good; grilled chicken salad said to be good. Service was good. Prices were reasonable.

We come here about once every two months. I have never had a bad experience. The food is always very good and it's an experience eating at the wood counter. I appreciate that the owner stops by the tables to say hello on most visits.

Once again, we were treated to a very special dining experience. From the service (Erica is wonderful ) to the expertly made cocktails and creative cuisine (Giuseppe, the owner / chef is a true rock star), everything was perfect from beginning to end. You always feel like part of the "family" and how nice that my staff chose Trabocco for our holiday celebration. I am even luckier to have this jewel in my neighborhood !! Thanks everybody !!

Trabocco is a wonderful restaurant. It's good for a nice dinner with your mate or even a group. Everyone who works there is a pleasure to talk to and are very helpful and friendly. The food is always amazing. We always feel at home when we go there. Giuseppe and Christine have a wonderful establishment and are blessed with hard working, dedicated and friendly staff.
