  • "The service and food was so good we went back the following night. Our server, both nights was Erin. She remembered us from the previous night. We wanted for nothing. The second night we were placed in the bar area and there was live music, which was a little loud, but the food was so delicious it made up for it. Love the minestrone soup! Hated getting a review text at 1:15am!"

  • "We decided to celebrate Carole's birthday as a special treat. The food was impeccable and the family style we love. Our son Jared had the petrale sole, Carole had the scallopini and I the saltimbocca. The green salad's house dressing was wonderful, a sort of light, creamy Cesar with garlic. We sipped a Ruffino Pinot Grigio. On the table was home made focaccia. Angie, our waitress was a serving machine and a doll to boot. We were greeted, seated and saluted by the maître d and staff as we left. A fun, excellent time. Our reservation was for 6:30 pm and we left three hours later. We brought a St. Honore cake for her birthday from nearby Galli's Sanitary bakery. Most everyone had coffee with dessert. A fun and delicious evening."

  • "Our waitress was over the top. She has a two tone hairdo and she has one of the best personalities that I have ever come across in wait staff. She is an asset to this restaurant. They were so busy that things were held up but God!! She is a gem."

  • "This is similar to some of the old San Francisco Italian restaurants of which there are very few left. That's what makes this restaurant so special! Our server, Gina, was so accommodating, professional, and friendly too! We both had the Petrale Sole and it was perfect!"

  • "Overall good,the minestone soup seems very watered down, but salad very good. We had the cannoloni and salmon both very tasty"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The restaurant was like a remnant from the 70s, low lighting & dated, & might benefit from some renovation. That said, I thought the food was pretty decent & would go back if in the area. There were a lot of choices & combinations offered....all sounded great. We both had the raviolis with meat sauce & cream which was delicious!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Bertolucci's is a wonderful little place with some of the best 'Old World' Italian comfort dishes. The Saltimbacca was delicious as was the ravioli and meat sauce, and the New York steak...perfection. Try the Osso Busso if it's available, melt in your mouth! Cant get Italian like this anywhere in the Central Valley, now way, no how!"

  • "We made a reservation for 7pm on a Tuesday night and I'm glad I did. It was packed and we actually had to wait about 10-15 minutes for our table. I thought my salmon pasta was meh but chicken parm was well received. The crowd is older folks and the ambiance doesn't quite live up to the sweet sign that you can see from the freeway but it's not bad. Overall, I'd go again but probably not for a while."

  • "We were very pleased with our food and the service. The service was fast and efficient. The food was excellent. The event was a birthday celebration. This was a very good place for a celebration because it feels quite special. It is a beautiful room and the waiters and staff are very attentive. We will certainly choose Sodini's Bertolucci's for any special occasion."

  • "I have dined at Bertolucci's many times and have always had a wonderful meal. They are not tight with their liquor which is important since the price of a shot of liquor is $8 or more. The service is superb - such a nice staff. The food is always delicious - from their pasta dishes to their Veal Scallipine. I wish they had more than one kind of soup. They fried calamari is really good - wish they would have the tentacles instead of just rings. My family and I will continue to make Bertolucci's one of our regular dining spots."

  • "Delicious food. We were a party of 5: three of us had veal saltembocca, one had chicken parm, and the other had steak. All of our dishes were delicious with generous proportions. We loved their cuisine and bread basket with specialty breads. Our only question was that we had told reservations that this was a birthday dinner at the time we made our reservation, the greeter said, "Birthday dinner?" when our group arrived and we said Yes, but then the waitress didn't say anything about it nor did she bring any ice cream or birthday dessert at the end. We had eaten there before and thought that a complimentary dessert/ ice cream was provided for the birthday person, but perhaps that has changed?"

  • "since we went to Bertolucci's, we have dined at 3 other places, had different types of Italian food. Bertolucci's is the best!!! We enjoyed everything. The calamari was awesomely plenty. In fact, portions here are the best for your money. If people complain about Bertolucci's, they are just people that you cannot satisfy. We eat out a lot and by gosh. This is for sure the best yet. Better than New Joe's, Better than any local eatery around for the money. Great place. Thank you for the service. Only thing was, I guess they do not honor birthday's????"
