Fab Food - Pricey but Posh, Diminutive Portions

Have been to Tra di Noi half a dozen times over the years and you can't beat the ambiance. Everyone feels like a celeb at this posh eatery (and we've certainly seen our share of lunching luminaries). The food is still excellent as is the service. However, portions are small and prices are large... read more

This popular restaurant in Malibu's Cross Creek center is still pretty good and always packed, lunch and dinner. The patio is the place to be for lunch, especially if you're into people watching. If not, get a table inside and you won't be disappointed. It's far more romantic and intimate inside. There's also an outside window to order take out... More

I love eating lunch or dinner at Tra di Noi! Most of the time you can enjoy a wonderful meal while watching local children, including those of the rich and famous, playing. I love children, but I really go to Tra di Noi because of the food. I have ordered various Italian dishes, and the chef always tries to prepare... More

We were craving pizza and got what we wanted! The service was excellent and I especially enjoyed my first pumpkin pizza. Sauteed spinach was delicious too. Nice ambiance and the feel of a wonderful neighborhood restaurant.

Excellent, authentic Italian cuisine in the heart of Malibu, adjacent to good shopping, across from the beach, walking distance to the pier, in a quad with a playground for kids, including a sandbox. Good selection of libations and good variety of well prepared Italian dishes. Lovely patio dining from which people watching, including star gazing is easy.

The noise is overwhelming at night. The tables close together. The service rushed and perfunctory. The food presentation desultory. Doesn't matter if you sit outside or in,it is all no good. You have a reservation? So what. You wait anyway. 30 years ago it used to be fabulous. New owners. Disappointing in every way. And the name is Tra di... More

I've had some of my very best Italian meals at this restaurant. Whether I'm sitting in the main restaurant for dinner, or getting take out from the window outside, the food is always very good. And the restaurant features an elegant indoor dining experience or a lovely patio that looks out over the inner courtyard of Cross Creek, and the... More

My wife is Italian, and so a tough critic of Italian restaurants in America. She gave Tra di Noi an "A". Even though the chef is from Guatamala.

In Malibu just for the day or just for a meal? If so, make this the place to eat if you are craving Italian. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. Both are great. They also have a "To Go" window with the best salads and sandwiches. (Bisteca is my favorite- served with a great side salad.) For a sit... More
