Nice diner

We enjoyed a very nice diner. Good Italian food in a pleasant atmosphere. A good place for pasta. We did not try the pizza but will certainly do that the next time when we visit. My husband had the ossobuco and this was the best one he had in a long time!

Absolutely beautiful restaurant and family friendly! Their cocktails are delicious as well as the wine. They were so patient and kind with my kids! The greek salad is one of my favorite things here and my husband loves their Hongos (mushroom) soup.

The food (Italian) and atmosphere was exceptional. I was on business for three days in San Jose and this was the best restaurant I ate at for the three days. If I had gone earlier I would have gone back several times.

The food is good, although the service lacks (slow, and not too with it in terms of culinary knowledge and different styles of food preparation. Just ask about pasta asciutta and watch the waiter's eyes glaze over, then call a conference with the maitre, who also goes blank). A West L.A. wannabe with a long way to go.

The Bacchus staff were prompt and responsive. I attended a private group function and enjoyed dinner selections from a fixed menu. Art pieces decorate the walls and some are available for sale. The menu offers a range of options. I would recommend the Nutella crepe for dessert.

The place is nice in every aspect, but the food is regular, nothing special. I order three plates and non of them was good. Not terrible but nothing good to say.

This restaurant looks super good! Very nice tables, flowers, table clots etc.. It is very elegant also, so when you enter you do have high expectations. We ordered the corvina fish, gnocchi, pizza and risotto fungi. They were all good but not delicious. The service quite bad. We asked for some spice sauce for the pizza and it never came.... More

Spent ten days in Costa Rica and ate at some very good restaurants, but this was by far the best. The fish soup was wonderful and the beef was by far the best. Perfectly cooked and very tender. Good wine list. Friendly efficient service.
