Great service and terrific food. Friendly comfortable atmosphere. Pizza and crusty bread were deliziosa! Can’t wait to return.

We had the lasagna and ravioli. Both amazing! You get bread and olive oil mixture to start and also had calamari (sauce to dip was spicy!) easy location, free parking but FYI the patio area is on the hwy so very loud!

Nice to see people venturing out of their homes. The owner treated us exceptionally well.....felt like a valued customer. My wife and I shared a Caesar Salad, Veggie Pizza and a glass of Chianti Cacciata......Total cost was $51.47 plus tip,,,,total $62. Generous portions, good food,...excellent waiter. The couple we were with also shared a salad, one Branzino, one pasta, one Tiramisu, and two glasses of wine. Their bill was $130.00 including tip. Will return..More

My husband and I were in Malibu, enjoying a walk on the beach. We decided to find a place with seafood, but it was not to be. We found Tramonto on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. I ordered bolognese with pasta my...husband ordered gnocchi with pesto. We shared an eggplant appetizer. The eggplant was good, but then I'm not into eggplant. My husband like it alot. The bolognese was excellant as was the pasta that came with it. My husband said the gnocchi was okay. He said the pesto was creamier than he's used to. We'd try it again when we're in LA.More

We chose this restaurant because the calamari was highly recommend. It was excellent, and the pasta dishes we tried were amazing as well. The food, the service, and the atmosphere were appropriate for a top-end restaurant, and the prices were much more reasonable. The restaurant...is right on the Pacific Coast Highway. I would highly recommend Tramonto to anyone in the Malibu area or traveling by.More

Such a great place! The service was wonderful! The pasta and shrimp delicious and the sangria so refreshing! The bread and olive tapenade was unique and the Cesar salad just right! For desert try the chocolate dream! Definitely a place I’ll revisit!

Ok we got this place off trip advisor and it did not disappoint !! Amazing food and the friendliest employees. Prices are great also. All 3 of our pasta dishes were perfectly cooked. Small venue so go early or book ahead!

I cannot recommend Tramonto highly enough. We lived on the other end of Malibu until our house burned down in the Woolsey Fire (locally known as the YOYO Fire - You're On Your Own). We have temporarily located ourselves near Tramonto and discovered that it...is run by Wilfredo, who brought his crew over from the dearly departed Sage Room. What a delight! As an important aside - Malibu was completely shut off from the world for two weeks after the fire by the gendarmes. Somehow Wilfredo and crew managed to get back in and reopen, long before anyone else - and they fed the suffering locals for free!! That alone should get one to patronize this place. But once you do you will discover another reason - the food is great! The ambience is warm and inviting and the staff is on the case. We have an embarrassment of Italian restaurant riches in Malibu - Gravina, Tra Di Now, and Tramonto. Don't miss this one!!More

My personal preference is pasta which was perfection. What you expect is what you get. Good service, inside or patio dining and reasonable pricing.
