One of our favorites to share a meal, glass of wine, and quality service. Never too crowded and we've been lucky to find a seat quickly every time. We've been coming here for 5 years. Excellent Mediterranean style dishes, good steak, chicken, pasta dishes. The warm bread served is very good. The wines are Avg. we've grown accustomed to the... More

Over the last five or six years I have dined here probably over a hundred times. I have gotten great service and the staff is very welcoming. Over the years I have had many of the menu items and have not been disappointed. Good for the family and in the warmer weather the outside dining is very nice.

We typically have French Dip, Monte Cristo. Our friends had a Summer salad and Quesadilla. It's such a neat place to eat outside in the sunshine under an umbrella. the weather is typically excellent. The owner can be seen making the rounds making sure everything is working in top order.

Every time we visit California and stay in the area, we eat at Sarducci's at least once in that time. We renewed our wedding vows and came here to eat after the ceremony and our daughter and son-in-law even had their wedding reception meal here. The staff is wonderful and we always ask to be sat at Craig's table under... More

Right on the platform for the Amtrack, it's a fun and friendly place. Nice patio or dining inside. Wide menu for selections. We tried the calamari and was done with a nice twist. We will go back to have dinner.

Sarducci's is a great place to eat. I mainly go for breakfast or brunch. The food and presentation are excellent, the service is great, and the ambience is excellent - especially their large outdoor patio on a pleasant morning. Of course, this is predicated on your enjoyment of the occasional train that pulls into the station that is inches away.... More

It has been a long time since I have been here and the changes are long overdue. I understand it is under new management and the name will be changing soon. The atmosphere is delightful and still has the nice touch of the trains stopping and the food is very good

I can't add a photo as I already ate. The summer was fresh and had a very light and subtle dressing. The short rib sandwich had a really nice flavor mix and the sweet potato fries are light and crispy without a hint of greasiness. Trevor has clearly been revamping this place. It just went from a place we wound... More

We love visiting San Juan Cap. especially around Christmas because it's so festive. As creatures of habit, we always eat at Sarducci's because they food is consistently good and the service at well.
