    Trabocco is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious and well prepared. The server is very knowledgeable about the menu and the specials, he was attentive but not overbearing. He had a very pleasant manner which added to our enjoyment of the evening. Portions were not too small nor too large. Highly recommended.

    Still one of my favorite spots! The hubby and I dined at Trabocco for yet another birthday celebration. He had the special, roasted lamb served with roasted vegetables. And because it's my birthday I had the squid ink risotto AND the oxtail ravioli (boxed for the next day's lunch). As always everything was perfectly prepared and the service amazing. The staff always go out of their way to make you feel special. Love the tiramisu for dessert.

    Lasagne had satiny pasta, excellent Bolognese sauce, quite divine. The special lamb shank with polenta hit all the right notes (we didn't quite finish and took it home where the bone and bits of meat flavored some delicious white beans). We had soft polenta with the lamb shank and crispy polenta wedges with the grilled salmon. Hard to choose between the two polentas, both excellent and the right pairing with the main. The grilled salmon was still moist in the middle, always a good test of a kitchen. Our fourth main was the gnocchi with butternut squash. The gnocchi was very light, paired well with the sweet squash, and like the salmon, a nice balance with the two more robust mains. Our contorni was the sauteed green beans with citrus. Delish! And yes, we had dessert, the flourless chocolate cake and a creme brulee with that desirable balance of silky custard and crackle sugar crust. Can't wait until we next visit to try more of this restaurant.

    I would rate Trabocco as one of the best Italian restaurants in the Bay Area. The food and service were perfect. Unfortunately there was a band playing just outside of the restaurant and it was nearly impossible to converse. That, of course, was not the fault of Trabocco. I’m sure the folks that were not dining at Trabocco loved the music because it was a good band. I will be back.

    I was surprised that this place got such good reviews. I guess I have higher standards, think Cotogna in San Francisco. The service was good and the food was mediocre tasting. I ordered the lasagna and I make a tastier lasagna at home. We had the broccoli rabe pizza as an appetizer and it was okay. Again, my broccoli rabe pizza at home is tastier. I guess the lesson is to order items that I don’t make better at home.

    The staff is so friendly and on point with getting you into your table, cleaning up after a guest leaves and getting your food to you. Not only was the food delicious but they are so welcoming they make you want to move in! I had a rib eye on the specials menu and my mama had lamb shank. Both super tasty! And don't seep on the sides, ours was creamy polenta with spinach. super duper good, especially if your a creamy polenta buff. Fun atmosphere. Great "special occasion" or event restaurant. Cannot wait to go back.

    All the food was delicious, but if my friend and I could make one change, it would be the zabaglione. We could barely taste the marsala. A good zabaglione does not need whipped cream. Just egg yolks, sugar, and marsala.

    My meal was fair but my husband’s steak was tough and chewy. The service was fair, although our server never asked how we liked the meal. He did make sure to remove empty plates and he was very polite. Considering we were in an outside mall, I found the ambiance to be very chilled. I liked it. If we return, I will probably belly up to the bar. It looked very inviting.
