Ambiance: Tavern-like interior, but good table spacing. Televisions on the walls, so not a semi-formal place. We sat on the patio outside, which, being a downtown place, is right on the sidewalk. Tables a bit small, plates got somewhat crowded. Staff: Fine. Nothing extraordinary. Drink: Wine list is passable. Inexpensive (with a few high end bottles), lots of medium to... More

We had dinner here before the Sharks game. We had made a reservation but the place was quite empty. Very nice service. The crab cakes were really good, as was the "catch of the day". A nice place but not special?

This is a little gem in downtown San Jose on San Pedro Square. My wife and I have been here a few times over the years and decided to host a "party" at this location. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was excellent. We began the night with wine, beer and starters (bruschetta, baked brie, crab cakes....) which were... More

We were looking for a new spot for dinner and came upon 71 while walking in San Pedro square. Looked at the menu posted outside and decided to go in, glad we did. Loved the decor of the restaurant, takes you back to a little European place. We were there on a Saturday evening and it was busy as a... More

Nice Italian restaurant. I recommend appetizer Bruschetta (I don't know the correct pronunciation) which is marinated tomato on pan and Risotto which includes shrimp and ham. Each item are big enough. Risotto could be shared with two persons.

We searched for a place in San Jose, circled the entire San Pedro Square, and after passing it by the first time, ended up having a great meal on our last night of vacation. I had butternut sqaush ravioli, and my husband had salmon topped with crab. The brown butter sauce was great with my dish, because it was speckled... More

My wife and I keep going back because the quality of the food is excelent and we like the atmosphere. I heartlly recommend seeing if you can get a table out front or in the back patio if the weather is warm. When the weather is cold, sitting inside is nice and cozy.

I had dinner and drinks here as part of a large (~25 people) business meeting. The food and service were impeccable. I was not one of the organizers, so I can't speak to cost, but everything was well-planned, they did a good job of getting people herded from the bar area into dinner, and the pace was just about perfect...

We really enjoyed a lovely Italian meal at 71 St Peter. They made the best bruchetta I have ever eaten, they brush the toast with pesto, cover that with fresh tomato and shaved parmesan and drizzle reduced balsamic vinegar over the top, YUM! Don't miss it. The pasta was perfect, al dente and flavorful. We have never eaten her before,... More
