The service was just OK and we waited a long time to get our food (about an hour and a half). Everything was delicious except for the Halibut. It was so over-cooked my friend couldn't cut it with a knife. Also was very noisy. I think a smaller group (4 or less) would have a great experience. It's a beautiful... More

I love this place -- cheap breakfast, homemade apple sausages, friendly waiters, outside seating in the shade to people watch. VERY reasonable prices. We eat here every visit -- don't miss this one!

Nice ambience, great for lunch or dinner. Outdoor seating is nice for lunch on a warm sunny day. Great for people watching in downtown Pleasanton. I always order the crab cakes to start and I'm a sucker for shrimp so I love the scampi. For dessert, my husband and I always split the apple crisp. My mouth is watering thinking... More

We had salads for lunch. We asked for a different ice tea and the answer was that only black tea was served. A little disappointment when an Italian bistro doesn't have a light prose go coctail to offer with lunch or a n iced tea with fresh fruit inside . Location: great, pricey.

My wife and I have eaten here twice, in both of our opinions, this is the best restaurant in Pleasanton. We have eaten at 90% of them so far, none of them comes close to this one. You get what you pay for, a couple should expect to pay upwards of $100 or more especially if you have more than... More

Nice atmosphere, great sidewalk dining, good service and reliably good food. We go every few weeks! Fish dishes are always my favorite. Serving size is not too huge and a decent wine list

Outdoor dining recommended, you're virtually sitting at the intersection of Main Street for people watching. Food sometimes wonderful, and sometimes off the mark. Prices too high to take a chance on inconsistency.

Tasty minestrone soup. Bread served warm. Rib eye grilled to perfect. I have the halibut with pasta tossed with pesto, wonderful. Foods are served nice and... More

Easily accessible on main street. Bread for starters was great. Spaghetti and meatballs were good but the meatballs were very dense and not very flavorful. Service was excellent though and certainly worth a visit.
