Best Italian in San Bruno

I love coming here! The staff is so friendly and welcoming, and I have never had a bad meal. As full as I get I always stay for dessert and an extra glass of wine or coffee.

We were looking for somewhere to get dinner before picking someone up at the airport and found this lovely spot. We'd just finished several days in Monterey gorging on seafood and wanted something sustaining but simpler. The menu was full of all the standards and every plate around us looked and smelled great. We were not disappointed! My penne with... More

Taylor, from the Villa Montes Hotel, recommended this local treat. It was close to our hotel, in the San Francisco International Airport area. Casual family environment. We had the Lasagna and Pasta Primavera, is was excellent! Enjoyed our dinner at the West Coast Café and I would recommend this restaurant.

The receptionist at the Villa Montes Hotel recommended this close-by Italian restaurant. Nico, our server, gave us the kind of service we'd received at upper scale restaurants in Italy. If we're staying at SFO overnight, we'd come back.

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. Two ordered chicken parmigiana and thought it was excellent - moist chicken, tasty, and authentic delicious marinara sauce.Two ordered veal piccata- tender and quite good, also the accompanying...

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. All the pasta dishes were great - pasta tasted homemade and the sauce was zesty. We have traveled to Italy a half dozen times and this meal was better... More
