“Bit of Italy or Greece”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Had lasagna and was very good. They also have good PASTRIES - not the dry, suck the moisture from your body - but with creams and fruit and chocolate (eat your heart out Starbucks cause this was good). Not for the lactose intolerant.

“Convenient place to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Pro's - Location- this is in the heart of the city and in Union Square. It is very central and close to the stores in the downtown area. I usually go this place when there's a long wait at the Cheesecake Factory but let me just warn you that this place is not comparable to the Cheesecake Factory, ok? If you are terribly hungry and just need a quick bite and a place to sit, this is it. Otherwise, food is really not that great. The desserts look yummy but I've tasted more delicious desserts in Raley's or Lucky's. Service took forever. They'd bring you your soup or salad in 20 mins. So in summary, this place is just for a quick fix. :)

“Nice Breakfast, Pastry Selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Just opposite Union Square, this is a popular place for breakfast. Decent food, friendly service. Warming the cream for your coffee? Loved it! Grab a pastry from the case on your way out for later - the chocolate-dipped macaroons are scrumptious. I believe breakfast was in the $8 to $12 range.

“A nice place to have breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We had breakfast at Cafe Bellini which is located just right next door to our hotel Villa Florence, very convenient. In addition to coffee and juice, we shared Crepe Veggie which tasted quite good. $30, tip/tax included. Service is cordial. Restaurant setting is decent.

“great for breakfast, or a snack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

the little cafe front opens out at the back into a large dining area. Not posh but great for breakfast, good service, good food, and quick.
