Lunch with a good friend at a place we hadn't been to before but had heard good things. Upper Crust was a hit with us. Service was good as well as the food -- will go back.

We came in short before closing time with 3 kids and felt welcome from the first moment. The food and service was excellent, and was served in short time - a good thing when traveling with kids :-). Recommend the eggplant dish, it's delicious

We visited the Upper Crust Trattoria for a family lunch on a weekend with reservations and had a very enjoyable meal, an excellent corner table, and great service. The portions were generous, and the menu was extensive. A great place to enjoy an Italian meal in SLO

Great environment, plenty of room, a nice variety of food, and homemade desserts. The service was decent. The appetizers and entrees were good, but the three mini cannoli's were too crispy and hardly contained any filling. The cheesecake was better, but too small for the price.

A stellar dining experience! We decided against a nearby restaurant and just dropped in. Wanting to eat light, we ordered from the small plates menu. This was an excellent approach capped off nicely by the house Chianti. Of course, starting light, there was room for a chocolate dessert and coffee. Awesome. On top of this we had the best wait-staff... More

We stayed near here on our visit and were ready for a pasta evening. Started with calamari which was good. Lettuce in the salad wasn't as crispy as we like. Finished with fettuccine. Service was a little off as needed items weren't promptly met.

This restaurant makes the absolute best of its location in an old shopping center. The menu is large and the seating is generally excellent. One gets the feeling of privacy even when it is busy. There are many very good choices on the menu in all categories. It can be great fun with a large group.

This is one of our "go to" restaurants in SLO because we can always count on friendly staff, great service and deliriously good Italian food. Oh and one of our favorite dishes is the Chicken Marsala, yum!

Overcooked, dry crab cakes. My "rib eye steak" was not a rib eye: the meat was tough with an abundance of gristle. Overall very disappointing.

Nice decor, nice ambiance, Conor was a good waiter. The seared ahi was OK, a little over seared but nice sauce. The rest of the entries poor. My ribeye was an unrecognizable and stringy cut, and the crab cakes were over browned and dry. Oh, the petite shirah was fine. None of us will be back.
