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

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

Based on friend's recommendation as well as a former experience with this restaurant that had been positive, our experience today for lunch was lacking in so many ways. The location was great since we rode the train in for lunch were we met friends. We were seated in the back part of the restaurant and when we walked into the... More

The food is bland and boring.. Nothing to rave about. Have been there a number of times for functions. Would not go back unless I had to. It's right next to the train station so there is no real ambiance and then there's the noise when the train rumbles by. Try L'Hirondelle if you want good food.

This is a charming place to sit outside and watch the Amtrak come in. We stopped for wine and ordered the Lobster Portobello for $11.95. It was wonderful & the HH $3.00 wine was great. Highly recommend.
