Walked in here an hour before closing with family. Actually was looking for a seafood establishment that was closed. Well all of us had excellent food. Wish I would have known of this place . I would have went there again before I left Cali

Service is brusque to the point of being rude. The food portions are generous but tend to be over cooked and edged with flavors that don't belong. Finally, the tables are way too close together. For that one reason alone we would not return. We've...More

Huge menu with excellent choices mostly under $20. Very reasonable and complete wine list with wines from around the California area and the globe. Very professional staff and Service. Don't miss if you like Italian food.

I went to Trulli on a busy and rainy evening. I was with a much older family member and just after we walked in, two seats at the bar miraculously appeared for us to have dinner. There were a few winks and two women who...More

Cozy and quaint setting that will bring you back to Italia! A true trattoria one would find roadside in Tuscany. Our cuisine is traditional authentic Italian. With many classical dishes including homemade lasagne, our classic ricotta & spinach ravioli and gnocchi made in house daily. Bread fresh from the oven every morning compliments our garlicky Sicilian tomato pesto dipping sauce. A rock star wine list with more than 100 bottles offered at every price point and more than 20 wines by the glass to choose from. Daily specials are more contemporary Italian with a range of game meats including rabbit, venison, quail and bison using produce and recipes of the season. Gluten-free & whole grain pastas are available as well as a wide variety of vegetarian items to choose from. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and high quality products for an enchanting experience for all of our guests. Raise your glass and fill your soul with heart and goodness ~ cheers!
