Taste of Authentic Italy

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... read more

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

My wife and I always try and eat dinner at West Coast Cafe whenever we are in the San Francisco airport area, and have probably been eating here for ten years now, and never once have we been disappointed. 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.

The food is actually a 5, I would just like to see more options. Everything I have ever ordered has been great. With respect to atmosphere, I think they are just trying to take advantage of all the available space. Some booths, greater spacing, or other means of segregation would be great.

Where did they get their name? Probably the signage was bought by a previous owner. Fortunately our hotel recommended them for Italian food. Wow, they sure know how to cook. A delicious salad followed by a couple of entrees that left us in a much better mood than we had when we walked in. Service was friendly and efficient. Will... More

There are a lot of diverse restaurants in San Bruno. West Coast Cafe's name would never tell you it is a small Italian Food eatery. It gets 5 stars not because it is the best meal ever had, but certainly on eof the best in San Bruno, and better than may restaurants close by in other cities like Millbrae and... More
