I'm from Chicago and they brought the great taste of Italian pasta to this location in Santa Row. We were there Sunday and highly recommend the spaghetti & meatball in meat sauce. It cost $12.70 and they give you another to take home for free. The atmosphere is great and love those old pictures displayed thru out of Italian/Americans. The... More

What a hot spot, teaming with happy eaters and drinkers! Last night, a saturday night we had a reservation for 7:15. They were so busy we could not be seated until 7:45, however, after 1/2 hour in the bar, they gave us a wonderful booth overlooking the entire restaurant like a perch on a great scene. Every staff member from... More

We had dinner here the other night with a friend and we are coming back this evening with some other friends. We loved the atmosphere and the fact that even though the restaurant is so large it has a very very efficient kitchen. Plus the staff is so wonderful and service impeccable. The great food and reasonable prices are a... More

The food is good and the service is great; I just do not like to go to Santana Row because to me it seems like a fake downtown. I prefer eating in the real downtown but it is a good restaurant.

Eaten here a few times. So if I'm coming back it means I'm enjoying myself. Had some nice meals. Nothing out of this world...but have had good service, quality atmosphere, more than satisfactory food. Prices are a bit high but you are in Santana Row.

Went with a group of friends. Great atmosphere. The food was fantastic. Free parking, though i must say is challenging depending what time of day you go

So I live in San Jose but am originally from upstate NY, and a lot of my food reviews can come off as critical if I had that food in NY and it was amazing.. Well finding good gnocchi out here has been a challenge but this place has got it as close to perfect as I have seen. The... More
