Good Italian Food and Service

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... read more

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

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

The portions on happy hour are definitely worth it! Service was a little slow, but the food was great.

We have not eaten in the restaurant but have had happy hour in the bar. It was very good but occupies a very small space so not easy to get a seat.

An elegant restaurant. Live music, at least in the evening. Pleasant. Took a Filet Mignon, which was a bit too anynomous. A nice piece of meat and properly cooked, but it did not taste much, even less than tenderloin usually tastes. A creamy sauce, but it did not taste more than any basic bechamel sauce. Aspargus, properly cooked. The lemon... More

We made reservations to dine with friends on Saturday, Valentine's Day evening at the Trilussa Italian Restaurant. We certainly were glad that we did! The place is obviously a very popular and busy spot. An unexpectedly beautiful building, and a very warm welcome was the first good impression. We had arrived a bit early, but were able to obtain a... More
