    Second time there in the last two weeks. Great food! Nice menu and lots of “Daily Specials”. I had the Seafood Stew on both visits. Outstanding. Full of fresh seafood. Delicious broth. Started with Oxtail Ravioli and Butternut Squash Ravioli. Fabulously fresh and delicious. Perfectly prepared. Marshall and his team served us and did a great job. Highly recommend a visit.

    We sat outside which is why we gave the “Ambience” a lower rating. The inside is much nicer. If Covid continues to lessen, hopefully, we will sit inside next time

    Trabocco is one of our most favorite restaurants in the East Bay - we've been dining here (& recommending this restaurant to others) since Chef Naccarelli & his wife first opened Trabocco in 2013 - in of all places, a shopping center! But the location works well because South Shore Center has lovely outdoor space & convenient for parking & running errands before/after dining. The food & service is consistently excellent at Trabocco in a lively modern atmosphere both inside & out.

    We ate in the tent structure and it was drafty around our legs. Plus there was a pigeon walking around. The waiter was excellent and the birthday singing owner was terrific! Would love to eat there again and maybe inside.

    Two members of our party of 6 are hearing disabled. I requested a quiet dining area and was thrilled to be given seating in a small quiet room off of the main dining room. It was wonderful. This type of request is often missed by other restaurants so Trabocco is exceptional in this respect. Everyone was happy and completely satisfied with the food and service.

    Consistently a great experience. Good prompt friendly and knowledgeable service, excellent menu, food is fresh, well prepared and presented. Good cocktails and wine selection. Prices are very reasonable and unlike some establishments have not been raised by unreasonable amounts. This restaurant shows its popularity by always hosting a good crowd in a very nice setting :)

    mediocre food - especially that which they actually cook. (salad - no cooking just cut up tomato was good, burrata and prosciutto super expensive but good) but the ravioli was not very good. the deserts were actually bad - the tiramisu had no coffee nor rum flavor, the chocolate cake was not tasty and the coffee was entirely flavorless they ran out of one of the items we ordered wine glasses arrived hot heater did not work and the staff took a long time to find replacement fuel. chairs super uncomfortable to sit in very expensive - too expensive for the value service OK tho the waiter was really weird. they ran out of one of the items we ordered

    Chef and all of his team consistently make you feel welcome and well cared for. I have had the pleasure of dining at Trabocco many times for dinner for romantic two, relaxing afternoon drinks and appetizers, lunch meetings, and family birthdays. The amazing team here never fail to make a memorable experience. Each time when you think you have tried the best meal ever, you have an even tastier plate delivered with a smile and warm heart. The wait staff exude kindness, great menu explanations, knowledge about their wines, and are always willing to accommodate dietary needs....in short: Food served with love! Grazie mille a Tutti!

    We sat at the chef’s counter and had an awesome dinner, starting with the octopus and potato appetizer along with the caprese salad. Entrees for the three of us included the salmon special, the lamb shank and the pasta bolognese. Drinks, wine and dessert were also outstanding. Thank you Chef Naccarelli and your team for consistently delicious meals!

    We were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant was very thoughful to bring out a complimentary dessert with a lit candle. The server then left and then our table (did not sing happy birthday). So, our table proceeded to sing happy birthday to our guest. We didn’t think much of it but then we noticed that there were 4 separate tables also celebrating a birthday…but each of those tables had either the head chef or the server sing happy birthday to them. I would say it would be helpful to be consistent because we felt for some reason we were being left out on purpose based on how we looked. Maybe that’s not the case, but it definitely felt like it after every other table was given more personalized attention. And, when our invited guest whose birthday it was also noticed being treated differently, I have to at least bring it to someone’s attention so as to not inadvertently make someone feel left out on their birthday.

    Comfy chairs, attractive roomy space, but VERY loud. Food is delicious! Caprese salad was divine, Caesar salad so-so. Our mains were all wonderful - cooked perfectly, so tasty, generous portions. Service was impeccable - friendly, competent, professional. They kindly comped me a dessert because it was my birthday and sang to me in Italian! Most enjoyable experience. Will definitely return.
