“Really Good Food”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Trattoria Trombino's in Albuquerque has very good Italian food. If you are looking for a place on the north side of town, it is an excellent choice. Don't be overwhelmed by the full parking lot, there is more room inside than outside. I have never needed reservations.

Service is usually good, but sometimes uneven. At times the kitchen seems a little overwhelmed. The staff is always gracious. Although they do have a gluten free menu, it is not recommended because of the 25 to 30 minute wait time. There is no other Italian food restaurant in Albuquerque that takes extra long times for gluten free.

Prices are a little high, so we don't go there often. But it is a nice place with good food. Unfortunately they are not open for lunch anymore, which was my favorite time to go there.

Stopped by after arriving in Albuquerque after an Alaskan cruise. After flying from Seattle, we were hungry and my son, who resides in Albuquerque, suggested the place. Our server, Tiffany was outstanding (and kinda cute, too). Very patient with our group of 6. And the food....excellent. The mussels, scallops and shrimp in the red sauce and pasta combined was very flavorful. Many different martinis are offered. Had one with a raspberry undertone. Very good. Will definitely go there again.

“Elegance enhanced with an outstanding menu.”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Start the evening with pleasant and professional service. Read carefully an extensive menu that is supplemented with a full and varied wine list. Be aware that the specials are REALLY special and one may have to return if one ever wants to go to the main menu. The food is more than ample and the plate presentation is truly a work of art.

The service was mediocre as was the food. Most restaurants will now split meals at no cost. Not Trombino's!! They charge $5 to put one meal on two plates. Even then it was only after an argument. They wanted to just bring one empty plate.
