Wide variety of tasty food on a lovely patio

We enjoyed sitting on the patio at this restaurant. The menu has a wide variety of items from sandwiches to pasta. It seems to be the same menu for lunch or dinner, but when I asked I was told that I could get a lunch size portion of pasta, which was just the right amount for lunch. I thought... read more

Food was good. Service, cleanliness and a general lack of training and sidework was all too apparent. No manager on duty at 10:00 am on a Sunday brunch. The inmates are left to run the asylum. So much for new ownership. Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss.

Sarducci's has been one of my favorite places for years for breakfast. I love coming here with girlfriends and sitting on the patio by the fountain. I usually get the Bourbon St. Benedict and have been known to enjoy a mimosa or two! I have also enjoyed Mother's Day. Watching the trains come and go, the sparrows sipping from the... More

Been coming here for years with my parents. Love the atmosphere and the food. You can do a little "people watching" as the trains come in and leave. Patio is the best open atmosphere. We always do brunch.

Choose you meal carefully. My companion had the summer salad and thought it was quite good. I had the shrimp tortellini in Gorgonzola cheese sauce and it tasted fishy and the shrimp was limp, The patio is nice, but also be aware that as the restaurant is part of the depot complex, you will not always have a quiet conversation...

I love the location of the restaurant. Right by the train tracks. The kids enjoy a nice meal and watch/listen to the trains going by.

Every time that a restaurant old timer change the menu, usually is not on benefit of their customers, or increase price without a reason or pull out a popular item. This is the case, increase prices for the same portions and take away the popular and exclusive buffalo burger. Some items are overprice for the portion or food cost as... More

Sarducchi's has been in SJC forever. Have been going there since their original location, a block away, and now that they are closer to the train tracks. We always used to drop by for one of their signature salads or to have lunch but service and food has changed. Love the patio and the trains coming and going but the... More

Sorry to say we will be losing Sarducci's in a few weeks. The long time owner has sold - but he assures me something wonderful is on the way. Have always loved the breakfast, lovely garden setting and service at this restaurant
