This is a very reliable Italian restaurant with good pizza, pasta and salads. Wine list is extensive and you can frequently catch familiar entertainment folk lunching midweek. It is in a nice shopping center (Cross Creek Plaza) with free parking near very high end shops and movie theater. On a... read more

Always outstanding. This restaurant has gone through several incarnations over the past 20 years. Right now, it's more protein-heavy with a little less emphasis on pastas. Although the food is tremendous (the Osso Buco has always been insanely good), there are a few homier dishes that I miss. I used to come in all the time for gnocchi with gorgonzola... More

This place is good, but not as good as it thinks it is. Food was average, waitstaff was startlingly personal and flippant with diners to the point of being rude. I won't be going there again.

I love to come to tra do noi's side restaurant and get the ravioli with pink sauce and the margarita pizza to go and eat in the park. It's not too expensive, and some of the best eats around Malibu. It's perfect lunch stop if you're passing by.

Here is where tripadvisor falls short, I have to give this place 3 stars but how can I underline the fact that the staff tries their best, the pizza is EXCELLENT, but the pasta is average at best and the other plates as well. This is a classic case of being disappointed by all the other dishes because we took... More

I come here regularly for the fresh antipasti, fine pasta dishes, delicate gnocchi, and lovely wines. Always on my list for hosting out of town guests. Great service and attentive staff. Pleasant patio dining.

Their margharita pizza was as good as pizza I had in Italy!! The soft, thick and fluffy dough was perfect and the pizza had just the right amount of cheese and garlic! We licked the plate clean. Outstanding!!!
