This was my 3rd visit to this restaurant in the last couple of years. The owner is wonderfully wlecoming and gracious, with excellent suggections. I had a wonderful cup of the toamato and pasta soup and the special of the day - sauteed salmon with a wonderful wine and caper sauce and roasted vegetables. The wine selection is small but drinkable. No desserts this trip. You can't beat the value, quality and comfort.

Had an early supper here after a long day in airports and planes. Not too far from our airport area hotel. This is an Italian restaurant and the offerings are classically prepared dishes. I had the lasagna, which was billed as the house specialty. It was good, if a little bland. No sides were offered. I ate my husband's spinach. He enjoyed his veal piccata, which also came with not very good polenta. Decent wine list. Coffee was good and strong. It is an attractive little place, and not too expensive. Probably wouldn't go back.

Great fresh and thoughtfully prepared food, wonderful service, casual and cozy atmosphere. We loved it! We stayed near the airport before an early morning flight and were pleasantly surprised to find this non-chain gem for our final vacation meal.

Let me tell you about this Italian gem in San Bruno! Even Italiano hubby loved it! It was like nonna traditional food! From the salad to the pasta and dessert.. You will be in heaven! Al dente and fab menu and wine selection, white table cloths, impeccable service and do ask for the "fountain view" which we thought was so quaint! Even though we had flown in from Florida.... We wish we had this gem back home! Awesome!!

West Coast Cafe is an excellent Italian Restaurant, even though the name doesnt' tell you that.
The food is consistently good, the owner and staff are very friendly. It really is food you would get in Italy probably at someones home. Not elegant but very good. The sauces and pasta are excellent. Once you go there, you will return.
