This is a tiny, no frills, family owned restaurant in downtown Olympia. The house red wine is smooth, really good and only $6 per glass. I had the Eugenio which was Farfalle pasta with fresh corn, a cream sauce and fresh parmesan. It made me want to squirm with pleasure--absolutely delicious! My family had spaghetti (which is hollow) with a... More

This is by far the best authentic Italian cuisine in Olympia. The food is absolutely wonderful. You will need a reservation as they have limited seating and bring cash, as they do not accept credit/debit cards. Well worth the visit. you will get so much food for your money and it will taste so wonderful you will be wanting to... More

My family has always wanted to go here as we have heard amazing things about this place. We were not disappointed everything here is made from scratch and are only open for dinners. Everything we ordered was very good and the Tiramisu is to die for. Don't miss out on this little Gem

My wife and I go here often, the food is true Sicilian food with minimal meats. If you have ever been to Sicilia, then you know they use meat sparingly, one of the reasons they are thin and live longer I suppose. The Sicilian pizza is our favorite, don't dare call it a calzone lol. They also have many other... More

I had been Tod about Trinacria from everyone, so we went. The bottle of wine our server recommended to pair with our food was great, and the food was absolutely outstanding. The food took a little while to arrive, but we are not impatient like so, so many other reviewers.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful date night at Trinacria. We started out with the chef's choice wine which was absolutely superb. We also ordered two dishes (which we shared), the brocolli penne and the lasagna (which you do need to order ahead). The lasagna was the most amazing lasagna that either of us had ever had and was...

I have had a few ok experiences at this restaurant, and one really terrible experience. As was mentioned in other reviews the service is poor at best from both the owner and the servers. The servers are hostile and confrontational, acting is out, yelling at customers and acting like they are doing you a favor by serving you. The food... More

If you want an experience, good food for a reasonable price, and a story to tell, this is the place to come. Is it quaint? Barely (it's next door to a sketchy tattoo parlor). Is it eclectic? Absolutely (who doesn't take credit/debit cards in this day and age?). Are the wait staff stellar? Hardly (We've had some very laughable service).... More

You need a reservation to go to this place. All the food is homemade, and of good quality. Most everything is basically meatless, but homemade pastas, and sauces. Quaint atmosphere, albeit eclectic. Good wines, fun place.

We've gone to Trinacria's for 16 years.............always on our anniversary. It's wonderful. I can't recommend any place in Olympia over them. Food, Quality, Service, Price and ambiance are all wonderful. Truly a gem.
