Bring your appetite to this place as portions are large and delicious. This is authentic Italian cooking in my opinion especially dishes like pappardelle shrimp diavalo and pappardelle salmon with pasta strips el dente (not overcooked like too many pretend Italian eateries). Lots of wine choices from California wines to Italian ones from moderate prices to rarified prices as your wallet dictates.

We went to Bernini's for lunch - brunch , greeted with a smile and sat on the patio . I had the curry chicken soup and tuna salad . The soup was really one of the best I've had . My sister had blueberry pancakes and they were yummy . Our servers were excellent . We will return ...

Sorry that we don't live in this area since we'd love to come back. Very attractive restaurant with outdoor seating. Pappardelle shrimp diavlo and salmon dishes were excellent. They cost about $18 each. There are less expensive choices on the menu, both entrees and sandwiches.
Our waiter, Mark, took good care of us. We also ordered 2 meals to take away for dinner. Enjoyed our visit.
