“Like an Oasis”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

You would not expect this place walking all the way from San Bruno Ave. Very friendly service, very good meals; took the special of the day: spinach linguini with schrimps in a cream sauce. Finished with a creme brule. Wine selection could probably have been better.

“Crowded with Locals”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

It was recommended by the hotel clerk and she was right! By the name of the restaurant you'd never know it was a great Italian place. It was certainly known to anyone in the neighborhood as everyone seemed to know each other.
I would have preferred a salad to be part of the price. It was also very noisy but the service and the food was very good.

“Good "white tablecloth" Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Needed to choose a restaurant for dinner in San Bruno, as I was meeting a friend who was spending the night at a motel there prior to taking an early-morning flight to the East Coast. Chose this place based on YELP reviews. We enjoyed our meal there. Service was prompt and good, food was delicious, atmosphere was pleasant and quiet, and we had a pleasant bottle of Chianti from the winelist for $50. I would go back.

“Lived up to Great Reviews”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is the type restaurant that non-locals would have trouble finding without Tripadvisor. It was recommended by the nearby motel staff, but we may not have tried without reading the reviews. We very much enjoyed this small Italian restaurant. The positive reviews are warranted. The service was friendly and prompt but not rushed. We both thought the food was excellent. Bread outstanding. Good value.

“Just Ok...”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Having Trip Advisor's number one rating for San Bruno, I guess I expected more. We were able to get right in and were seated at a small, busy table next to the kitchen. Our food was delivered very quickly and it was good, but the service was just OK. It wasn't the quiet atmosphere we were seeking after a busy day in the exhausting city. My grade for the West Coast Cafe would be a solid B.
