Decent food at OK prices. Not like North County, but okay for Fallbrook.

I wasn't a big fan of the breadsticks (a bit too hard), the fusilli (needed a bit more spicing up), the tiramisu (missing the espresso?) or the seats (too hard for my tight buns), but the staff was kind, the menu extensive and the food came prepared fresh and was presented well.

One highlight was their house cab from Fallbrook Winery - it was delicious and we'll likely make a visit there soon for some tasting.

I'd drop in again at Trupiano's for some local Italian as this place gets great reviews, but for us, tonight, it was just A-OK.

Outstanding fresh Italian food at a very reasonable Fallbrook price. Have you ever found twenty dollars that you forgot you lost? Well that is what I felt like dining at Trupiano's Bistro. The bruchetto was over loaded with mounds of fresh cut tomatoes. The salmon was a thick center cut grilled to perfection loaded with more diced tomatoes and plenty of capers. Simply heavenly. They have an excellent selection of wines and the service is prompt and friendly. Yes, Fallbrook is out of the way, but is one out of the way place worth the drive.

My husband went here around 5pm on a Friday for dinner. Seating was readily available at that time, but it filled up quickly. If you are going later on a weekend night, you may want to see if they take reservations -- because it's worth it for the food. The atmosphere is okay, the parking lot is big and easy, but the food and service are both OUTSTANDING. Everything we had was head and shoulders above the quality of most Italian restaurants. They had great beer on tap, and there was always someone ready to help us with any request. They are free with the complimentary (and very tasty) breadsticks too. We had a great time and can't wait to go back for more now that we know how good this place is.

Trupiano's is a family business, operated by a second-generation restauranteur, Faro Trupiano. From great pizza and spaghetti, with homemade meatballs, to one of Faro's many award-winning specialties, the food is great. And, Faro manages to provide vegetarian and gluten-free recipes without diminishing the pleasure of the meal. The serving staff are personable and fun. The atmosphere is both date and family friendly. And the prices are just as friendly. Highly recommended.

Trupiano's serves excellent Italian food. The warm bread sticks with balsamic vinegar and oil that are served before each meal are amazing! The lasagna is awesome. Faro is an excellent chef and his staff is friendly. We love Trupiano's!
