We always come for lunch here and its one of our favorite places since its only a few minutes from work and we love their out door patio and their eggplant sandwich with salad.

Great location - maybe the best in a beautiful little town. The patio is fantastic. Hate to say it but the food was disappointing. I would not eat there again. Our disappointing meal began with Sarducci's not having the Seafood special of the day. Also, they did not have the Prime Rib. That should have been a red flag. I... More

On a sunny day this is the best restaurant to eat at because of the lovely patio with the fountain. The food is very good and the service also. A train will occasionally pass, but that's a plus -- adds atmosphere without being too noisy.

I've been several times at Sarducci's for lunch, brunch or dinner. It is a good choice only if you sit by the outside patio. Inside is dark with no character vs outside which is very charming. Salad selections are great.

Sarducci's offers not only a great environment but high quality food as well. Visited last Sunday. The Eggs Benedict, omelet and turkey sandwich in our party were all excellent. the service was tremendous as well. The outside patio was great as weather was perfect. great dining experience at a reasonable price.

We have enjoyed eating at Sarduccis and chose them to cater our sons rehearsal dinner on Nov. 14, 2014. Tom and Andres promised great food and it was delicious! They prepared fresh penne pasta with meat balls in a yummy marinara sauce, green salad with 2 home made dressings & warm fresh made bread for 50 people. It was perfect!!!... More

I didn't do much research for my long weekend at CJC. I just know that I want to see the mission. We didn't make it to the mission that day (we went the following day instead) but just walked around the area. We love the quaintness of the train depot and saw this nice looking restaurant. We decided to give... More

A family member said we should go there for a great lunch. The location is next to the San Juan Capistrano train station (the bar was part of the station many years ago) and the kids in our party were fascinated by trains going by. Also, the outdoor seating was very pleasant and there was music from the adjoining park.... More

Called in our reservation for Sarducci's when we arrived our table of 7 was ready and no waiting (Yay). We ordered pasta dishes, breakfast and salads all were excellent except my daughter's Salmon was overcooked. Ambiance excellent, train came through a couple of times but did not hamper our good times. It was a warm sunny day which made sitting... More
