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

I would never eat there again. The food was frozen and microwaved. Have they ever heard of eating clean. Preparing meals with fresh local produce and seafood/meats.

This is not a café at all. It is an excellent little restaurant which was recommended to us by the receptionist at Villa Montes. We would not of visited had it not been for the recommendation or by walking past outside. Food was delicious and lots of it which was freshly prepared. The service was very good too with them...

You can not tell by its name that it is an Italian restaurant, and a good one at that! We went here twice this week and on both occasions, we were happy with the food and the service. The place has a section at the back good for a large (40 or so people) party. Service was very good: Jose,... More

In San Bruno for business. West Coast Café was recommended by the front desk at our hotel which is just a couple of blocks away. We found the café to be exactly as the other reviewers note. The food is excellent! And, the service is great, too. Very friendly staff - lots of smiles and appreciation for my party stopping... More

It's a small restaurant and the name doesn't sound Italian at all, but the food has always been good. I have never had anything there that I didn't like. Any pastas, fish is wonderful and I always have it just grilled, their West Coast Salad is great. It isn't cheap for lunch, dinner maybe ok, but when the food is... More

We were there on a Wednesday night and were surprised it was so busy. The service was a bit slow but the food was very good, especially the creamy mashed potatoes that came with most entrees. The special was a veal chop stuffed with gorgonzola cheese, which my friend said was delicious. I had the prawns in garlic wine sauce... More

Had early flight out the next morning so decided to stay near SFO. Very good food, very good service. Interesting menu and nightly specials. Nice atmosphere and décor. Bar limited to beer and wine only. Parking in public lot in the back. Definitely will remember it next time I am in the area.
