As others have mentioned, living in this area we have been visiting this restaurant since they opened. It is still a favorite. The staff tends to stay in place which is nice and the food in consistent. We each have our favorite dishes (my wife dreams of the penne arrabiata) they make occasional changes but the core menu has been strong all along. This is not (nor are they trying to be) a top end, special occasion restaurant, but it is a consistently good, better than the chain--place to enjoy!

Took family based on reviews. Outside of restaurant is in need of new paint and repair. Inside a little better. Place was pretty empty- 7pm on Sunday night yet service was unbelievably slow. Food was good but not special enough to make a repeat visit.

We have been visiting Tribella since their opening some 12-15 years ago, and from day one, the food and service has been top notch. This despite several ownership changes and the obvious staff turnover. One nice thing about Tribella though, is that the staff actually doesn't turnover nearly as frequently as other restaurants, so you can develop relationships. The food is as reliably good as it was when they first opened, and this is simply a great place for dinner and/or drinks after a movie (it is located about 200 feet from the Randall 15 theater in Batavia, or just a spur of the moment on a weeknight. It is a testament to ownership that they can continue to turn out high quality, well prepared meals. A few of my favorites are the white wine steamed mussels, Sicilian Pizza (yes they have excellent thin crust "artisan" pizzas), and the Tournedos of Beef. As it is an Italian style steakhouse, they have excellent pasta dishes which are enough to feed two people. All in all, a great place for drinks after work, dinner or just a nice snack. If you're going on a Friday or Saturday, I would call ahead or go online for a reservation, as walking in could have you waiting 45 minutes or more for a table.

Tribella has been a favorite of ours since we moved into the area fifteen years ago. The atmosphere is tastefully done and the lighting is perfect. The wait staff are very attentive and seem as though they enjoy their job. While there, try the rigatoni, my husbands favorite. I usually order one of their chopped salad varieties. For these reasons we consider Tribella an old standby.
