Awesome starter bread - not consistent

The ravioli is good. The ambience is very nice. The hosts and hostess are friendly. But some of them are very old and forget your order :) They do have vegetarian choice. They offered to add vegetables to the fettucini with alfredo pasta, but the vegetables were pretty raw.

Lovely Italo-Persian family, great atmosphere and nice original food. Great outdoor sitting in a summer evening, hard to say if better than indoors with livE music!

Disappointing. Ordered Caesar salad, lettuce was grim and grey. Ordered 3 courses at once, and had to specify that the pasta course be delivered before the main course, which seemed to confuse the waiter. Pasta took 30 minutes to be served, and was acceptable although the cream sauce on the tortellini was thick with flour. Chicken Saltimbocca was OK, chicken... More

Best Restaurant Experience Ever! My husband and I were in town for business, having never been to Mountain View before, and just happened to choose this place based on the friendly greetings at the door and the liveliness inside. We sat at the bar as we didn’t have a reservation, but had a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding, the... More

We have always gotten delicious food, graciously served, at Vaso Azzurro. We're probably eaten here at least two dozen times, to celebrate anniversaries, special dates, etc. It's simply our "go-to" place because the chefs have been consistently good, on regular menu items and the special of the day if it appeals to you. This month we had good friends from... More

This family owned Italian restaurant was one of the highlights of our visit to Mountain View. The ambiance, service, wine list and menu all were pleasing to the max. Family owned is key to the delightful evening. If you are lucky, you will hear the staff sing in lovely harmony. The counter tenor is particularly superb. Cannot recommend highly enough,

First of all Marc at the front door is such an amazing guy. He got us right in for a table of 4 around 5pm before all the reservations hit. Be sure you make a reservation if you're going any later. He told us all about the place and his favorite dishes and desserts. I'm so glad he did or... More

Perfectly good meal and food with friendly service. Only real issues (and this is for anything in Mountain View) is getting somewhere to park and/or getting through the main intersection Restaurant is right at the top of Castro and is excellently presented with some nice modern art paintings on the wall. Very mediterranean in colours and well worth a visit.... More

Great food and service. Music on some nights. Outside eating with heat lamps if needed. Try to get here when the train schedule is less frequent as the noise is noticeable. You you should really get reservations as there is always a line. There is a bar area and I think you can also eat at the bar. Good selection... More

We enjoyed a wonderful evening with the family owners of this truly authentic Italian restaurant! Birthday serenades, Pinot Grigio, and tasty seafood dinner combined to make this a special experience in the heart of the Silicon Valley!
