Tight quarters and great food! A local favorite…. fun to sit outside on the small patio and people watch. Yummy bread and tomato olive oil dip!
Wow, I came here the other night for a group dinner with friends. It was "couples night" and we get together with some friends each month and 4 couples always get together and each month we take turns picking out a restaurant. I drive by this place all the time but never checked it out so I'm glad that our... More
Their food is so authentic and delicious. I love all the rissotto dishes and haven't had anything else that was not delicious. The staff has been consistent for years and always welcome us when we arrive. Order Lobster Ravioli for little kids; it always goes over well. It does get crowded but reservations are now available!
My friend and I have been coming here for several years when we spend a weekend to go to the Del Mar race track. It does a very good interpretation of basic Italian food. We usually go Sunday evenings, but once we went on Saturday and had to wait over an hour and a half. The hostess did not apologize,... More
The food is delicious, and Reasonably priced. The wait time from 6pm onwards can be long and there are no reservations, unless you have a large party. It's worth the wait if you have the time.
We live in Encinitas so when I found out that Trattoria i Trulli was a sister restaurant of some of our favorites in Little Italy, we decided to give it a try. THe dining room was a bit cramped and it got a bit warm, but the food lived up to our expectations. We had calmari that was very light... More
Excellent ambiance and exceptional food. Don't want to speak too glowingly of the place because then it might get harder to get a table. Went on an uncharacteristcally hot night, and restaurant had no AC on, so dampened the experience a wee bit
This place has the best Italian food I've ever had outside of New York, where I grew up. The feel is quite authentic and the staff adds to that ambiance with their service. House red sauce is amazing, as is very dish I've ever had here. Great wine list and just a fantastic overall experience. Try it and you'll keep... More
This was only our second visit to I Trulli and we both remarked that we have to come here more often! I had the veal marsala which was one of the best I have had in years. The veal was fork tender and cooked perfectly and the marsala was just right. My wife really enjoyed the chicken lasagna and would... More
Trattoria I Trulli's food and wine is outstanding, traditionally prepared Italian fare with delicious flavors and generous portions. Do not expect tired old spaghetti marinara. Here, they serve pasta with a variety of sauces, wonderful meats and seafood dishes. A thoughtful and interesting wine list tops it off. Seating is quite tight and the atmosphere noisy, so not recommended for... More
