J. Trani's Ristorante Restaurant Review

: J. Trani's Ristorante in San Pedro has carried on the culinary tradition of the Trani family since 1925. Ever since executive chef Dustin Trani --- he’s the fourth generation in the kitchen --- began cooking at upscale DOMA in Beverly Hills, the family restaurant has gotten more attention. But the locals appreciate a menu that offers mozzarella and arugula-stuffed risotto balls, truffled potato and pancetta pizza, butternut squash ravioli, and swordfish Milanese with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Wash it down with a reasonably priced Chianti and finish with bread pudding that arrives in a cast-iron skillet. People also swing by in the afternoon Tuesday through Friday to enjoy special lunchtime offerings like steamers, beef stew and beef sandwiches. Located in an old home, the restaurant has a warm, retro vibe.
