Phil Trani’s has been a favorite Long Beach gathering place for the past 25 years. Serving the best in California cuisine, specializing in fresh fish, prime steaks and a variety of classic Italian pastas. Phil’s personal touch is evident in each delicious dish.

But Trani’s is much more than a restaurant. It is also a favorite gathering spot for sports celebrities from Southern California and beyond. The walls of the restaurant are adorned with priceless memorabilia, from Reggie Bush to Mark Sanchez to the late John Wooden.

On weekends Trani’s heats up with live music every Friday and Saturday night from 8pm to midnight.

When you visit Trani’s, come into the kitchen and watch Phil work his magic. You’ll also see walls filled with signatures and notes from Hall of Famers and celebrities.

Trani’s is open for dinner nightly at 5:30pm, and for lunch weekdays at 11:30am. Open for dinner Sundays at 4:30pm. Free on-site parking.

Combining the best in food, music and camaraderie, see why Phil Trani’s has been a Long Beach Institution for 25 years.
