Great Saturday Morning Mimosa Brunch!

Forno Vecchio only serves brunch on Saturday mornings, so don't miss out on their Crème Brulee French Toast or savory pancetta, mushroom and spinach crepes! Mimosas are served by the glass or you can even order a "bottomless" mimosa if you have a DD like me along to drive :) We prefer the... read more

I have had lunch with friends here several times, and it's a favorite. The food is good. The atmosphere is fun, and there is outdoor seating as well.

Had lunch here Feb 13 before the Valentine's Day rush. I started with the spinach salad and then the meatball panino with truffle fries. My wife had the warm Brussels sprout salad and the mac and cheese. All were very good and flavorful. Only one waitstaff on duty but she worked hard and service was not impacted. The executive chef,.... More

For once, I find an Italian restaurant that doesn't use the same red sauce used for their pizzas on the rest of their dishes. Their pasta is home made everyday. They pay attention to detail and are meticulous in preparing the dish you ask for. The wait staff is very helpful and alert. The dining area is very open and... More

This place is located downtown Pleasanton with a nice and simple decoration. The restaurant is located on Main Street with a lot of nice stores to shop. The menu was simple with some unique Italian dishes. For us since it was the first time we decide to stay with salads ,they were all different but all were fantastic and tasty... More

Wow, this place is fantastic. My wife and I have this restaurant in our weekend cycle. We usually go out to eat once a week and F.V. is one of our favorite. The Oso Buca is fantastic as a special. I wish they would have it on the permanent menu.

Discovered this restaurant by consulting Yelp while visiting during the Scottish games. The restaurant is on a delightful, shops and restaurants filled Main Street. Upon entering the restaurant we experienced a spacious, clean, and well decorated interior. The menu is extensive, with some unique items: gorgonzola gnocchi, crispy brussels sprouts, delightful salads, and the usual Italian fair. The restaurant takes... More

In the quaint and charming area of downtown Pleasanton, this family-run restaurant felt very real. The lasagne was second-only to the best I ever had, ( in Lucca, Italy), with subtle spices, not overpowering tomato. Nice wine list, reasonable prices. Gems like this I want to keep to myself.

I've been to Forno Vecchio many times, for brunch, lunch, dinner. First, the house red 'Rare Red' is a great drinking wine with your dinner and a steal at $14/bottle. I've been pleased with *most* items I've ordered, although not everything has hit the mark for me. Lunch Panini's are great and you can't beat the price. Summer brunch is... More
