Stopped by for dinner before leaving for Hawaii the next day. Thanks YELPERS this was a great choice.

In an out of the way old part of San Jose in an old house.

They have a private lot about 25 yards away, so don't pay to park on the street.

We ate early so it was not busy. Service was friendly and quick.

I had the tortellini Capricciosi in a white cream sauce. I asked for extra garlic and wow did they give me EXTRA garlic. I was bleeding garlic for two days. I'm sure my airplane seatmates appreciated the wonderful odor. TOO bad it was a great sauce.

The torts were cooked properly and the sauce was excellent.

I ordered a glass of red wine which was served a little too warm.

Had the insalata verde which was good and decent size.

Overall the food and service were good.

A few simple steps to make it 4* would help.

Did not meet our expectations. Food was quite bland and the Sangiovese wine was uninteresting.

Five of us walked in with no reservation & they moved some things around to accomodate us. Service for the rest of the evening was just as excellent. It is a small establishment (located in a remodeled house) but the ambiance is lovely! Inside reminded me of some of the cozy places back home in the North End of Boston... The food was delicious - had the Veal Veronica... cooked perfectly, fresh veggies. Everymone else enjoyed the spaghetti bolognese - sauce was perfect! This was my 2nd favorite meal of the trip!
