Farewell to a favorite

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

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

On the positive side it is a fun and interesting location. I have dined there several times in the last 9 months as a friend likes it and I was being diplomatic. But not again. The food is truly so-so and the seating outside is uncomfortable. There are better spots in San Juan and close by.

This was one of our favorite stops when we were there. Our server was Dana and she was amazing, great service! The food was superb, the location fantastic and reasonable priced.! A must stop, right next to the Depot.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day, so I knew it was going to be be great! I hadn't seen my friend in over 10 years, so it was an absolute delight. We were immediately greeted and chose to sit outside on the patio. There was a parking garage directly across the street, so that was a plus. My girlfriend chose... More

Had a wonderful mid week Birthday celebration evening at the Depot (Sarducci's) in San Juan Capistrano. Located at the train station has great patio dining along with friendly well trained customer oriented staff and excellent food. Generous portions and reasonable prices. Very relaxing and non rushed experience with complimentary full sized dessert for the birthday honoree. Consistently a good experience.

Casual dining. Reasonable prices and easy to enjoy food selection (not exotic or contrived). One of my all time favorite places is eating here on the patio in front of depot watching the trains come and go with my Grand sons. We stop here whenever we are in San Juan Capistrano (for over 14 years now) and its easy to... More

Really nice outdoor seating area. Have been several times for breakfast and for lunch. Never disappointed. Good service, good food, and all at a good price. Enjoy!

I like sitting outside on the patio, next to where the trains stop. I would like the tables to have tablecloths and a little better ambiance.

Really good location right next to the train station. My granddaughter loves to eat here and see the trains go by. Food is just so-so but location makes up for it!
