Staying near the airport and was afraid we were missing out on the great food of San Francisco, but what a gem we found. The atmosphere was great, staff very friendly and efficient. Fast service, and most of all AMAZiNG food! I had the special which was an Italian chicken dish that was absolutely delicious. My dinner companion had spaghetti and meatballs. Everything was great and it was very fairly prices. I had wine and a very large portion of delicious food for under $35. Would definitely go back!

We wanted to meet friends flying home from SFO so drove from San Jose to South San Francisco for dinner at Bertolucci's. First time at this restaurant and we had a great time.

First the service we received was excellent. All the waitstaff were attentive, helpful and professional.

The menu offers many good choices from appetizers to desserts. My hubby was disappointed to not find chicken piccata on the menu but found the chicken Marsala very good. All six of us really enjoyed our entrees.

The entrees came with soup or salad, a creamy polenta and vegetables. I am allergic to dairy and they immediately removed my plate - fresh wild salmon - and offered penne with marinara sauce in place of the polenta. BTW...those who had the polenta loved it. No one had dessert but as a coffee snob I can report The coffee was excellent!

Although it was easy to find the restaurant we probably would have gotten lost without our trusty GPS. It's a bit off Grand Ave but there is plenty of parking.

Or so my colleague stated when we sat down and then again several times. While we were enjoying the perfectly prepared calamari; sure enough Sinatra came on and then it was Italian for him. For the rest of us, we were convinced right away. The decor takes you back about 30 years which just adds to the allure and ambiance. We had veal saltimboca and chicken parm. The meat was nice and tender and covered by warm cheeses. Pasta was done al dente which could not be better. It was a great relaxing way to top off a day of corporate training. Certainly recommend trying out.

Very good Italian style cooking such as Veal Scallopini, pastas, antipasti, desserts, etc.
Everything is ala carte, soups, salad, antipasto, desserts. Vegetables and palenta come with dinner. Full service cocktail bar, wine list.
Lemon, limoncello dessert is to die for!
