Homemade excellent pasta, bread and great house wine.

We couldn't get in anywhere else, so tried this as a default. What a pleasant surprise. Homemade bread, and pasta. The owner is from Italy, even the house red wine was superb. Now our favorite Italian restaurant in the east bay

Was here with a group of colleagues. We started with a few appetizers... olives, caponata, shrimp. The caponata was different from my recipe - no tomato, walnuts instead of pine nuts. Not as good in my humble opinion. Shrimp was good. I had pasta bolognes. I found the past to be over-cooked, on mushy side. Sauce lacked interest, just very... More

We celebrated our anniversary at 54 Mint. Every previous visit has been great and this one didn't disappoint, either. I noticed that some reviewers complain about slow service, but I feel that if you want fast service, go next door to Chipolte. We wanted a nice relaxed dinner with good food and drinks and we weren't disappointed. From the stuffed... More

We had a delicious dinner. We had anticipated eating here and were happy 54 Mint lived up to its reputation. I had the beet salad: roasted beets with orange wedges and walnuts and the lasagna. Delicious. My dining partners had the soup and the asparagus with browned butter and the swordfish special. The pork belly was divine. We shared a... More

What a great find. The food is excellent. The focaccia and pasta are homemade. The red house wine is awesome. Service is great. Now one of my favorites.

One of the two best Italian spots in the East Bay (the other being Lo Coco's in Piedmont). This restaurant belongs to the same family that owns 54 Mint in San Francisco; the owner lives in Concord and explained that he opened this location so he could cook closer to home. This great little spot is a slice of real... More

We visited again after a hiatus of several months. Still a wonderful place to dine. It's small, no more than a dozen tables, tucked away in an unassuming strip mall but the restaurant is delightfully appointed. It's difficult to get in for dinner if you haven't called ahead. The food is excellent. I love to start with the mixed green... More

Yes their pasta is tasty - and luckily the portions are not gigantic. I had the special of the day - seafood risotto $19 - I was disappointed because the salmon, scallops and shrimp were overwhelmed by red pepper. The ciabatta bread brought to the table is outstanding - so soft and delicious. The appetizer olives are delicious. The tomato... More

I only went there once. The service was a bit slow but prices were high to me. I ordered the pork because I miss s.f. chinatown old Woey Loey Restaurant for the roast pork. It was tastey but it was too expensive for what we got. Also service was not good that night.
