Nice Find

Made reservations for 6 people and were seated on time. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. The service was great too! They brought over a piece of tiramisu to celebrate my father's 95th birthday. They even sang Happy Birthday to him. Just fantastic!

It's hard to satisfy my 92 year old mother, who just likes good honest food, but she loved what she ordered as 4 family members enjoyed this restaurant for the first time.

Celebrated a birthday with a party of 8 and amazingly, 8 different entrees were delicious - very tasty with fresh ingredients. Thought the best was the petrale sole - perfectly sauteed.

My wife and I had just arrived from Mexico and decided to fine some place to go for a quick dinner since we were tired from three long flights. After driving around we drove down San Mateo Avenue and found parking nearby. The restaurant looked better than a cafe since there were table clothes. We checked the menu in the... More

Their menu is varied, but with an emphasis on Italian dishes and all we've tried have been excellent. Nice selection of... More

I checked into Villa Monte nearby, didn't feel like going out. Based on tripadvisor, I ordered takeout from this place. Had a West Coast Salad, Lasagna, and garlic bread. Everythiing was very tasty, and flavorful. Restaurant looked nice too, but didn't eat there.
