The atmosphere is pleasant as is the service prompt and professional. I ordered a Ribeye Steak. It was cooked a perfect medium rare...seems such a difficult thing for most Steakhouse nowadays. The meat was divi9s and very tender.

Tromino's Bistro Italiano is great restaurant with wonderful ambience, food, service and an large wine selection.! It is conveniently located. Go hungry since the portions are large and the desserts are decadent. The calamari was prepared perfectly and the bread was divine.

Took my wife to the resturant for her birthday. The food was fantastic. A very good variety of Italian style menu items to choose from. She ordered the lasagna and I ordered the octopus. Both were prepared to perfection.

Trombino's is like stepping back into history, somewhere around the 1950's. Sadly, this is not a pleasant experience. It is physically run down, the seats are in sad need of repair or better yet replacement. The prices are not cheap yet there is no complimentary...More

They do have gluten free pasta options. Like most gluten free pasta, it is just okay. There are other menu items that are pasta and gluten free.
