Came here on a Friday evening. They had live music but was way too loud. Had a Caesar salad that consisted of 6 romaine leaves for $12 and a bad martini. Save your money and enjoy one of the many other fine restaurants in San Carlos.

My family stopped in here yesterday for an early dinner. After being promptly seated, we were disappointed. We had to be served off of the lunch menu as it was still too early for dinner. However, gluten-free options were very limited off the lunch menu (compared to the dinner menu), according to our server, who did not seem interested in... More

Perfect for a business or intimate dinner, great service, food, location, ambience... If only they could improve the restrooms it will be 100% perfect.

We've eaten at Piacere's before, but this was our first time for brunch. The menu was varied and interesting, and the food was very good. We sat outside, and enjoyed watching people and their dogs walk by. A very nice spot for brunch.

We got to this restaurant and it was fairly crowded so glad we had a reservation. Initially the waiters seemed overwhelmed, but by the end of the night we had good service all around. They had live music that was Jazzy nice. The appetizers are tasty. The entrees were OK, but surprisingly the best was the Gnocci which was delicious... More

I've been here with a group of colleagues a week ago and I've to say I was really surprised. The entrees (mussels) were great the starter were incredibly good and the salad complementary as well! The main (i took Meat) was average. Overall a great experience and a great quality food

We have been there for lunch and dinner. The last time was for dinner with friends. For dinner we had different pasta dishes and a cup of lobster bisque soup which was OK. The food was good. I had a cocktail which I thought was a bit pricey. A few days before, we had pannini and salad for lunch and... More

Diverse menu that always keeps me coming back. I've been here many times for brunch and dinner, and have never been disappointed. It's nice to sit outside, but the narrow sidewalk means walkers are almost on top of you. I prefer a table just inside and close to the window. Great atmosphere, not too noisy, and friendly staff.

Wonderful little restaurant, a jewel to be had in San Carlos. The food was amazing! Prices were very reasonable. Our party ordered a variety of vegetable dishes as well as salads including their beet and goat cheese salad which was one of my favorites. My sister is a vegan and was thrilled with the variety of dishes she could actually... More

This place is really hit and miss! The food is delicious and you can't beat the location in San Carlos, but the service is usually not up the par. Brunch on Sundays is super tasty, and they offer bottomless mimosas, which is a nice touch. It's great to sit outside on the patio on a sunny California day too! If... More
