Have come to enjoy this casual restaurant. The brucetta options are all delicious! Have only tried a few of the other items on the menu, but they have all been good. We like to take advantage of the 1/2 of wine on Friday afternoons. No rushing you here, relax and enjoy your time with a great atmosphere and delicious food.

The glass size options enable you to try a nice variety of wines -- many of them ones that you probably wouldn't have tried before because they're reasonably priced, and you're not required to buy a bottle or even a carafe - they have a slightly smaller size than the normal wine...

Best three things about this place- 1: it's in downtown San Mateo 2: it serves great wines by the glass and 3: it has an outdoor central patio with a beautiful garden! Another happy place!

This restaurant's specialty is bruschetta. They serve many varieties, from mozzarella and tomato to brie with apples, and prosciutto with figs and marscapone. Each one we tasted was delicious. We also had wonderful salads. Other menu items include small plates, soups, panini and desserts. They have a big wine list. This bustling place was fun with great quality food. It's... More

What a find in San Mateo! Menu unique in its offering of interesting Bruschetta combinations. Other choices are panini, salads, and soup - all very good. Great wine list. Very nice ambiance - and live jazz some nights.

Who would have thought bruschettas can get you really full! Came here for an office group outing and they were so accommodating and effecient with a large group. I highly recommend it- I crave their bruschettas! PRO: great for groups reasonable great for sharing CONS: Parking can be hard in downtown SM

I was there a few months ago and I still have cravings for their BRUSCHETTA. That was the best bruschetta I've ever had. The service was good and the wine they recommended went fine with the good.

We find ourselves here before the movies, host meetings, celebrate family events and love to take out. For a quick and easy meal. They only have broucshetta, panini sandwIches, salads. The wine list is fantastic and compliments the menu. The owner is always there and the staff are wonderful. This is a BUSY place!
