Italian Food....Interesting atmosphere

Went with a friend to have dinner. We ordered a starter - kalamata olives & shaved parmesan. Imagine our surprise when the dish that was set before us was 90% cheese with 6 (count em) 6 kalamata olives. We were cracking up. We split a pasta dish with vodka sauce, but there was no taste of vodka... read more

This is about my second or third time I had dinner at this restaurant. Each time I always find the food excellent. This time I found it passed the excellent state. Server JD was very good, made a recommendation of the Filet Mignon with a reduced cognac sauce it was so good I wanted to lick the plate, the side... More

We really enjoyed the environment and the live music. The food was good with large portions. I had the pescatore risotto. The risotto had good flavor but was a little thick for my liking. Of the three restaurants we visited on this trip, it was my least favorite, however all the restaurants we picked were highly rated by this site.

The food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. We sat in the bar area because there was entertainment. Wine was expensive and the pasta is no bargain. I guess I had higher expectations. The patio was closed because it was cool that evening. I may need to give it a second chance but would choose the dining room.... More

Trilussa is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the area. They have a varied menu and the food has always been very good. Being Italian myself my ratings are usually based on how good the Italian sauce is and whether the pasta is al dente.and I have to say Trilussa's is excellent. This time I tried the Eggplant Parmesan... More

Bartender is amicable and helpful, service is great, drinks are superb and food is also delicious. Happy hour everyday from 4-7 pm. Live duo music everyday other than Tuesday and Wednesday. The movie theatre is right next door, the Mary Pickford Theatre. A nice night for all!!

We were VERY pleased with our dinner at Trilussa. They had a pretty wide range of dished and everything our part py of six ordered was excellent. And they're very accommodating for guests with dietary restrictions.

This is probably our 5th or 6th time here, and we enjoy it every time. We really enjoy the food, and the service is always great! Probably a good idea to call for reservations as they are usually busy. I would call the day before, after they open at 4 pm so you can be sure of getting a table... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant and it was pretty good. I was seated quickly and asked if I wanted a drink almost immediately. I ordered a small salad and the spinach and cheese ravioli. The salad was fresh and made of mixed greens. The cheese ravioli was very good but some of the pieces could have been... More
