Very good overall, my waitress Miranda was excellent, the atmosphere and background music all very nice. My appetizer (Calamari) was not that good at all, too much batter and not that tasty. The spinach salad was fabulous as well as the Shrimp Di Avalo. Look forward to the next time...

You might not expect to find a wonderful Italian restaurant in Albuquerque, but after you've had your fill of hatch green chili, this is an excellent choice. They have an extensive menu, excellent friendly service, and quality meals that are sure to please. I tried their chicken marsala and found it to my liking and I'm certain to be back... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant on a date. I ordered Seafood pasta and it was delicious. My husband ordered veal. It was kind of salty and we told our server (who told the manager). He came back with the desert menu and offered each one of us a free desert. I liked their Italian Prosecco.

We had a great visit to Trombino's! Only one minor complaint but other than that, great experience. The wife ordered the salmon cakes salad and I ordered the chicken caprini. One of my favorite Italian places is Carrabba's and I usually order Chicken Bryan. The caprini has the same ingredients but approached a very different way. The presentation was awesome... More

We have gone here quite a few times for happy hour. They have an inviting bar area and the happy hour specials are cheap and tasty. We have tried the flatbread pizzas and calamari and enjoyed them. The staff is attentive and friendly. It is always welcoming and enjoyable.

Not good Italian. Quality was more like a chain restaurant. Bread was the only good part of the meal. Very disappointed.

By far the best Italian that I've had in Albuquerque. They serve you generous servings and are really friendly! Make sure to book a reservation as this place gets packed!

Had an excellent dinner at Trombino's. Our server, Courtney, was a prompt and efficient - she even helped pick out an excellent wine. We come here occasionally, and have not been disappointed yet.

When in Albuquerque don't miss a chance to dine at Trombinos, a local restaurant since 1979! We had a business dinner with partners & everyone raved about the food. Service was great also even though place was very busy on a Wednesday night. Don't miss a chance to eat here if you love Italian food!

Thank Don O
