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.

La Pastaia was convenient to the place we were staying, so we decided to try it rather than walk around in the heat. I am so glad we did! Our waiter was phenomenal and friendly. We had the poutine to start. I was expecting what I saw on the foodie channel with gravy and cheese, but this blew it out... More

We had breakfast and dinner here and were not terribly impressed with either. The spaghetti and meatballs sauce was pretty bland and tomatoey, although the meatball was good. The Caesar salad was flavorless. Breakfast was limited and a bit boring. My omelette was not very fluffy. So ok, but next time we are in town we will find some where... More

Ambiance: La Pastaia is a very good looking place, that has been maintained well. High ceilings, good comfortable furniture, and interesting highlights. Enough distance between tables to not be sharing with other couples. Staff: Good. On occasion it has felt that they run a little lean on staff and there can be delays. Drink: Wine list is good, not great.... More

Restaurants in hotels in Europe and many other places are often very good; unfortunately restaurant hotels in the U.S. are generally mediocre or worse. Amazingly Cafe La Pastaia in the De Anza Hotel, San Jose, was really good. We had a small conference at the De Anza in January 2015, and booked the restaurant for lunch for 35 for two... More

To celebrate our daughter's college graduation our family of four dined at La Pastaia last Friday night, April 24, 2015. It was to be a very special dinner for all of us. Our server, Shafiq, was attentive, bringing an ice bucket for our champagne to start our meal. All day I had looked forward to enjoying the Cacio e Pepe... More

I decided to host a brunch here the day after my daughter's wedding. The brunch was very good. Everything was served hot, and was refilled often. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs. I really can't praise the restaurant enough for the great food and service. We had about 40 people coming in at different times and the... More

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
