I always enjoy going to Trani's for a meal. It's not just a meal. It's enjoying my limited time with family and friends that I don't see very often. It's an event!!! It's eating delicious food done right, then going around different tables to say hello and have a quick conversation and catch up with their lives. That porchetta dinner was so delicious and my pasta was aldente, the way I like it and eat it over in Italy. I always leave there feeling satisfied and loved. I'll be back very soon!!!
We were treated to dinner here on the Saturday following Thanksgiving and it was wonderful. Our host had pre ordered the menu for us and she did a great job. Calamari with a light Thai sauce, Pizza, Salad, beef on potatoes, swordfish , a penne past in a delicious red sauce and desert and coffee if choice. All the food was very very tasty. They have a full bar that I enjoyed. I'd come back here again.
On Wednesdays ("Wine and Dine Wednesdays"), bottles of wine are half off!
Friends of ours introduced us to J. Trani's for dinner recently...what an interesting neighborhood restaurant. Lots of locals there the evening we visited. The staff was very professional and attentive; service was excellent. We started with the Trani salad and the arugula and strawberry salad - delicious - but a dinner plate size! Our mains consisted of the veal chop and the fish of the day, which happened to be swordfish and Colorado rack of lamb....all done to perfection and excellent in every way. Unfortunately there was no room for dessert, just coffee. Would love to come back another time and try some more mouthwatering items from their menu.
Ask for the Calamari to be grilled, fantastic!!!
A fantastic dining locale not to be missed! Well worth the drive into San Pedro and a great value as well.
Favorites: NY style calamari, risotto balls, and the prosciutto & truffle oil pizza
The squid rings are delicious very nice atmosphere
Great local Italian place. Everything I've eaten has been excellent.
Gargonzola gnocchi is like adultmac and cheese! So good but rich
