    We checked out this new restaurant at the same location that has housed other restaurants in the past. This by far the most enjoyable dining experience for us. Excellent customer service. Our server was attentive and helpful. The host came by couple of times to check on things and the chef came out at the end of the meal to see if we were satisfied with all the food. Each plate was beautifully executed and presented and everyone's food came all at once. I tried the 4-course prix fixe dinner which I highly recommend. Keep up the good work!

    We were very disappointed in this dinner as a whole. The food itself wasn't bad - in fact, the charcuterie appetizer and the grilled branzino were both excellent. However, there is a large disconnect between the food and the rest of the place. The service was rote and unpolished. The question we asked about the (terrible, uninspired) wine list was met with a blank stare, and no one was sent over to talk to us. We were told to "enjoy" at least 8 times, including when new cutlery was brought to the table. The windows next to our table were all opened to let in the evening breeze, which would have been delightful, if we weren't facing 101's very loud roar of traffic. The culinary aspirations far outweigh the overall experience.

    I had the pasta with lobster sauce and crab .The taste was not balanced. Spice/sauce was off. My friend had the Fideua Tagliari and said there was too much sausage in it .It was not Italian more Mexican in my opinion. The wines were not good GI Sangiovese and Sauvignon Blanc. Maybe other wines are better! The desserts Tiramsu and gelato were great! . I would go back to try it again. Everyone was so nice .We need to give the a chance . Nice to have this place close to home! Of course Café Roma coffee is the best!!!

    I don't typically write reviews, but the experience was so good, that I want to share...We met friends for dinner but had time to enjoy a cocktail at the bar beforehand. The bartender was great and happily accommodated my request for an "espresso martini", which wasn't something they normally serve. His Manhatten was spot on too! They had live music in the bar, which carried over to the restaurant at just the right level of sound. It was like dining at a Trattoria in Italy. The Tuna Tartar & Fig & Burrata Cheese Appetizers were amazing! Spectacular food and the desserts are made on-sight...Yum! The service was excellent and we never felt rushed. This is a great place for a group of friends, family or a romantic dinner for two!

    Food was excellent & service was extremely professional, but prices were very high since all is al carte. Their version of Cesar salad was very good; salmon, chicken & pork belly were all good. The cost for corkage was EXTREMELY high. I hope they adjust things otherwise they will not be successful.

    Bartender, Mark, very nice. Drinks too expensive. Their happy hour only included their own specialty drinks for $6.00 vs. $11. So, if you want your own favorite Manhattan or Martini, you pay $10., so there is no happy hour for you! Beto, our waiter, very nice, but, we had to request bread (focaccia). The "featherbone" steak very tasty, but expensive, served with spinach only. The salmon (served on a bed of beans & a tasty sauce) was very good, but could have been a larger portion for the price. Hope they make it, looks like they have a large investment in a nice space.

    First time at this newer restaurant. The waiter, Manuel, was excellent. The new decor and ambiance was very nice. However, the food was a disappointment starting with my appetizer, the pork belly, which had not been cooked long enough and had way to much fat and no crispness that should come with good pork belly. Presentation of all the dishes was very good, but in general, the food wasn't quite what we had hoped

    My family and I dined here for the first time after purchasing a Groupon. The physical location is right off of HY 101 in Burlingame, so it is very convenient for business travelers or anyone looking for a lovely meal near the airport. As you walk in, there is an inviting-looking outdoor patio with gas heaters and a tiled fire pit. Inside, the layout is a bit odd- but the decor is tasteful and updated. From where we sat, we had an unobstructed view of the dining room and kitchen. The food here is exquisite and very well prepared. It's obviously a labor of love for the chef, who came to our table personally to make sure we were enjoying our meal. The Warm Pork Belly, Broiled Dry Aged Featherbone Steak, and Seafood Stew were standouts!

    Heard about the new opening and was very satisfied with our dining experience. Food was very fresh and tasty - each plate had its own unique flavors and textures. We ordered tuna tartare, wagyu crudo, grilled octopus, pork belly and purple potato gnocchi with rabbit ragu - all delicious! The venue is set-up for lounging at the bar with drinks and food, relaxing outside on the patio, or table-seating in the dining area. Service is relaxed and friendly. Would recommend for a special evening or just popping over as your neighborhood favorite, there's something for everyone!

    Our goal was a private dining experience with eight friends, food that was really tasty and service to meet our desire to slow things down and enjoy the moment. It was perfect. We sat in a private dining room. We pre-ordered a custom 4-course tasting menu in advance to make things easy for all. Pizza, pastas, salads, meat and fish. They even printed 'our menu' to share. It was amazing. The kitchen was on point. Food arrived beautifully plated. Our friends passed one dish after another enjoying every delicious bite. We spent the better part of three hours in OUR private dining room. Pablo, Chef and Owner, knows how to do it right and I can't imagine a more enjoyable way to enjoy friends, food and a few bottles of wine. Bravo..

    New restaurant with new staff - staff needs to be better trained to elevate the restaurant and match the menu pricing level. They are not working in a Macraroni Grill chain level. They are trying but not "polished" and hopefully that can happen soon to help the restaurant succeed.

    Quiet Sunday night been open a month. They still have several kinks to work out, and I hope they do as the food is tasty and owner/ servers are trying really hard to get things right. Ordered Charcuetrie plate, which was tasty except for the meat that was too spicy from sitting on the hot peppers and sauce. Enjoyed the selection and generous portion. Our table ordered little gem salad, and beet salad and both were tasty and fresh and flavorful and generous. Entrees ordered were pork chop,ahi tuna tartare,which were very good, and the steak. Unfortunately steak was barely warm, undercooked and fatty piece of meat. Also they need to get ingredients for dirty martini, didn't have them. Chocolate mousse was great, baked Alaska was not.

    If you want a warm, friendly, delicious Italian restaurant, then Fattoria E Mare in Burlingame is the place to go. The beet salad was delicious with the added touch of toasted quinoa. We also loved the mussels and the scallops. My only complaint was the ribeye steak. I did not care for the quality of the cut so they substituted my entree. The salmon was cooked to perfection. Looking forward to going again this month to hear the jazz music.

Amazing beet salad, waygu beef, perfectly cooked pasta with fresh peas, mushrooms and green beans, super creamy panna cotta and sorbet. Can't wait to go back and try the wood fired pizza. Huge patio was perfect for dining outside. Great potential to be a fabulous new hot spot.

    What a great new restaurant for Burlingame! My husband & I went for dinner & we experienced flavours we'd never had before. Pablo, the chef/owner is very innovative with the fresh, organic ingredients he obtains from local farms. Between us we sampled smoked mussels, fattoria de mare, little gems with poached egg salad, grilled pork chop with baby turnips - including their tops & trumpets - & finally, tiramisu. Everything was very different & very enjoyable. Our waiter, Englebert, was A++, so knowledgeable, attentive & pleasant, and he recommeded an excellent Italian wine. Pablo visited us & asked if we had suggestions on ways to improve anything - a nice touch! Also, Jorge, the GM, was very friendly & welcoming. We'll be back very soon.

    The potential for this restaurant to be great is there. Chef/owner from very good restaurant in San Francisco. Nice menu. When we went, the restaurant was new and only opened about 2 weeks prior. The sign outside still showed the name of the previous restaurant. They were still working out all the kinks including what would be in the final menu. However, what we had was very good. Will try it again at a later date to see if kinks worked out.

    I saw this "new" restaurant here and decided to try it for brunch last Saturday. It is in the old Medallion Steak House building. That place was terrible. Upon entering, I saw a few people at the bar and no other patrons in the empty room. We were given the brunch menus and were quite surprised that all the items listed looked very unique and sounded like they would be interesting to try. There has been a pizza oven in the restaurant since it was built and we decided to try the one on the menu which was with prosciutto, some greens with an egg placed in the middle. The crust was light, thin and crispy and tasted great. All the mains were wonderful as well. The only negative is a limited wine list.
