Great Place (nearly only) in Sunol

Good place before or after the train. Don't forget to visit Bosco in the bar. It can get busy when the train is running. The service is good and the menu has a decent selection for mostly Italian food. The parking is mostly across the street if you don't luck out in front.

Sunol is sunol. They elected a dog to be their mayor and now he is stuffed at the bar and is a beer dispenser. We've eaten in the restaurant a few times and it has always been good. Their roast beef is a signature dish. Admittedly we haven't been in a while and I heard a rumor of an ownership... More

Sunol is a little old style village at the base of the hills above Fremont and San Jose. A little old style American pub, A little like the way to west movies. The staff were much the same, old school cowboys. Servings were huge, steaks and ribs very tender.

This is just like a bar you'd find driving through Eastern Nevada, except no hookers. Laid back, good music on the weekend nights and good bar fare. Good friendly service and if you're there to watch a sporting event they have tvs. But I enjoy a burger and brew (from Bosco's lifted leg) and be around people who are just... More

This is a must stop to try the beer at Bosco bar! The atmosphere is very friendly and the pouring from Bosco the dog is fun to watch and cool to drink after. The bar has Live bands playing on certain days and it is just really rustic and casually pleasant! The restaurant is quiet and both areas had its... More

All too often in California, when one gets to a travel destination, one finds only a tourist trap or a vineyard too snooty to endure. Bosco's is, however, the real thing. Sunol is a delightfully unselfconscious small town. The day we arrived Bosco's was few lunch customers and I was allowed to go behind the bar and lift Bosco's leg... More

This little restaurant is in between Pleasanton, Livermore and Fremont, tucked in the very little town of Sunol. There are several reasons to stop on this dot on the road.;To ride the Sunol-Niles train, to visit the old antique store, to go to the post office or eat at one of the two restaurants, (you can't miss them,) or to...
