Alameda, Calif. — Trabocco Kitchen and Cocktails, a new restaurant founded by Alameda residents Chef Giuseppe Naccarelli, a native of Palombaro, Italy, and his wife Christine, will open Nov. 18 at South Shore Center in Alameda. The 4,700-sq.-ft. restaurant is located in Center Court, the shopping center’s main plaza.
Trabocci are a type of fishing pier unique to the Adriatic coastline of Italy’s Abruzzo region. “The distinct architectural imagery of the trabocci as well as Alameda’s waterfront location, helped us refine the restaurant’s design and gave a sharper focus to the final materials, colors, and art work,” said Lev Weisbach of Weisbach design | architecture, who oversaw the restaurant’s architecture, interior design and construction.
Trabocco has a 90-seat main dining room, 16-seat private wine room, 30-seat bar area and 56-seat outdoor dining patio. The main dining room features a soaring 35-foot tower crowned by a large skylight and light sculptures inspired by fishing nets, and opens to a contemporary exhibition kitchen. The outdoor patio will be heated so it can be used year round.
