Great food but too much of everything!

They serve great food. They serve too much. We where there with 4 people and we could eat maybe about 1/4 of what was served to us. So we took the left-overs home and had food for 2 more days!

I love the chopped Italian salad. I am a big fan of the two-for-one meal. Also the chocolate cake for desert is the best I have ever had!

I have lots of friends who like this place, I am just not impressed. I also feel they are overpriced

Come here with your family/friends and go home with full stomach (and some take home) with a family style order. Reservation is a must or will be a very long wait.

The Italian food is better than average, not super. What's nice is that there is lots of food and lots of choices which you can get family style. So it is a great place with a large group.

I've eaten in many restaurants, so couldn't fairly say yes to the "Is this on of the best meals" question. However, the food was definitely above average. I was part of a group of six and everyone enjoyed their meals equally though none of us ordered the same thing. I DO think the wine list could be a bit better.... More

Although this is a very popular destination, it's too crowded and noisy for me. They serve large portions, but to me it's heavy. Many people think because the portions are so big it's a great place. I'd prefer less and finer cuisine. Only if friends want to meet here would I come, never would I suggest the place.

This was such a treat! What great food and lovely atmosphere. We are just visiting San Jose and did not know what to expect- so pleased! Portions were huge, bread was fabulous and just out of the oven, wine served at perfect temperature and service was perfect (thanks Cody!) - just note, those classic pastas come with a portion to...
