Nice brunch

This is the restaurant in the Hotel De Anza and it was convenient and had very good food. We had brunch that was basic breakfast food not a lot of choices but good. We also had dessert 1night and they were great! If you are staying in the hotel definitely try this restaraunt.

About the third time eating here in the last two years. Receptionist and waitress were very nice and professional. Overall service was very good. We started with Caesar salads. Extremely bland. Must have been a cheap bottled dressing. We each had pasta dishes. It's hard to screw up spaghetti & meatballs. The meatballs though were also kind of tasteless. Wine... More

La Pastaia in San Jose CA is a great place for a quiet meal with your date, spouse or partner, and they also cater to groups. We have early dinner there about once a month, and they never miss. The menu changes seasonally, with daily specials. Extensive wine list. For a quiet meal, check the internet for dates when the... More

We went here for dinner before a show at the SAP Center. I wanted something on the nicer side that wouldn't break the bank since it was for a birthday celebration. (First choices if I had no budget restrictions were Morton's, McCormick & Schmick's) It was just okay. Nothing was horrible but on the flip side nothing was spectacular. Their... More

So sad. This place used to be amazing. The chef for years, Forrest, was the best. The old owners, Marge and John, not only were analysis about the food they served in creativeness and authenticity, sent Forrest to Italy every summer so he could stay authentic Italian and learn the newest in modern Italian Cecina. It is the opposite now... More

We started off with a bottle of Chianti. The Classico is fine. Our appetizer was the fried green beans; not what comes to mind when I think of Italian but very tasty. The main courses were lamb chops and the roasted chicken both were exceptional. The service was friendly, but we had keep asking them over for this and that.... More

The restaurant is attractive and comfortable. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. My husband and I shared the house salad ($10) which was memorable for the roasted pistachios. The only item on the menu that met my husband's severely restricted salt diet, was the hamburger which was well prepared with salt free fries and condiments on the side. I had... More

Wonderful restaurant located in the Hotel De Anza. Didn't realize that we needed to make a reservation the night we were there, but they still accommodated us right away. Great service and good food!

Excellent appetizers, especially the roasted Brussels sprouts and carpaccio. The beet salad was on the small side but tasty, the pasta dishes were perfectly al dente, the pizza with arugula was perfectly Italian--few American Italian restaurants have caught onto this trend. While eating it, we thought we were back in Venice. The Pannacotta dessert was very thick and creamy/cheesy, with... More

We eat here a lot. There is enough variety on the menu to keep us coming back. Fabulous appetizers to get you started (fava beans, mushroom, shrimp), also great salads. The pastas are always a good choice. There are also several meat dishes, including a veal chop. Don't forget deserts. The chocolate pot de Cremer is amaze! Go ear and... More
