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.

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

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
