“Incontro has moved!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

For those of you who adore Incontro Ristorante - be advised that they have moved from their San Ramon location to a fabulous and lively location in Danville, CA. My husband and I were walking around Danville this weekend and found Incontro - much to our delight. Wonders of all wonders, they kept the amazing, simply scrumptious gnochi on the menu and it was jumst as mind blowing as ever. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful and retains all of the charm of the SR location -loosing olny the unattractive exterior of the previous locale. Now there is outside eating and judging from the crowd outside - it looks like this is going to be a big hit for Incontro. What can you say about the food? Always great, always fresh and always interesting. The panna cota with cherries is outstanding and the specials are always a good bet. Love this place and am thrilled that it is now in my backyard.

“Incontro, most authentic Italian food in the bay area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2009

I love this restaurant. It is a little bit of Italy right in San Ramon. The food is always fantastic. The most mouthwatering gnocchi anywhere -- and I mean including Italy. I have been to Italy many times, and this restaurant always makes me feel that I am stepping into a little restaurant in Tuscany. The owners, both from Italy, bring a charm to the atmosphere. The home made bread and pastas are outstanding. This is well worth a trip, and once you are there you will be coming back again.

“Authentic Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2008

I am Italian and I have lived in the United States for 9 years. I have tried countless Italian restaurants during this time and this restaurant is the only one of two that truly serves authentic outstanding Italian food (the other one is in Reno, NV).
