Diners seek out Trattoria Trullo for its elegant, savory take on traditional Italian cuisine. Toast the completion of a ruthless pre-meal rap battle with crispy handfuls of calamari fritto, cloaked in a spicy tomato sauce ($7.75), or delight in the decadent prosciutto con melone, which highlights the unlikely pairings of imported prosciutto, ripe cantaloupe, and dried figs ($9.75). Pasta-centric first plates such as the mortadella-and-basil trofiette pugliese ($13.75) ready the stomach for rich second plates, such as veal scalloppine with artichoke, asparagus, and a white-wine sauce ($22.75). The melanzane parmigiana happifies herbivores with layers of breaded eggplant, mozzarella, parmesan, spinach, and marinara ($14.75), while a rich selection of authentic Puglian wines accommodates patrons on all-liquid-grape diets and provides a thunderclap of terror to jittery first-time toast-givers ($7 by the glass).
