    We felt like we were in bad episode of kitchen nightmares. We waited an hour and 15 minutes for our entrees. Meanwhile people sat after us served faster and it was clear they were friends of gentleman who either owned the place or was manager. He was going table to table of people he knew. Our waitress tried very hard but struggled to get things right like the drinks. We asked for wine recommendation and she went ask " wine guy" he only recommended host expensive on the menu no second choices or what might go well with what we were eating. Food left alot to be desired as well. Veal that was ordered was like a rubber sole of a shoe....

    Great place for the whole family or overnight guests. Full bar, adequate wine list, and a menu that should satisfy even the pickiest of diners. Our group of five adults was promptly seated and recognized by the server. Everyone was happy with the appetizers, their entree and the very reasonable prices. We will return.

    Food was so-so, definitely expected more for the price. Location is a bit odd, in that it is at the very end of El Camino, and a bit removed from other establishments. The interior was spacious and has lot of potential, if only they worked on fixing the quality of food. Eggplant parmesan and the tomato basil pasta were average / below-average, and fell short in the flavor department.

    we had never been to this restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised to get a reservation since we called at the last minute on a Friday night for a party of 5. we assumed that the food may not be fabulous, but we were visitors in town and we did not want to go the fast food route. we were very happy with the menu, the service and the food was flavorful and the portions satisfactory for everyone in our party. there was no attempt to disguise good Italian food with odd ingredients or experimental additions. and as it turned out, the restaurant filled up to capacity later in the evening-so we may have just been lucky to get in.

    We were on a date night and shows this restaurant because it had a lot of good reviews. The highlight of our evening was the wine we brought and the lobster corn chowder which was delicious. From there it went downhill, we had their tilapia with scallops special and veal cutlet special. The veal was overcooked and covered with with canned mushrooms the scalloped potatoes tasted like they were out of a box. This is probably why the flys stayed at our table. What was supposed to be a romantic evening out wound up going into the garbage can and cost me $135. What scares me was how many four-star and five-star reviews they had. It was a total waste of time and money we will never go back or recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!!

    Fiorillos is our go to restaurant for spdcial occasions. We've been going for years. The sole is always a winner. It is lemony though. Mushroom bordelaise is delicious, make sure to sop up the sauce with the bread they serve, so good. The marinated beef salad is also very tasty. The service is always great.

    This was our 1st Fiorillo experience and it was a good one ! We were very impressed with the food and service even though our server was very busy taking care of her tables we still had a positive dinner out! The stuffed mushroom, meal, and wine were all excellent! Even the bread was hot fresh and awesome! We will definitely be back and tell our friends about our find! Mahalo Fiorillo's!

    My husband and I have passed Fiorillo's a few times the past two years while visiting our son at SCU.and finally decided to try this restaurant to see if it was any good. It had mostly great reviews and so we were excited to try it. We invited a few of our son's college friends so we were a party of 9. I didn't think you could ruin Italian food but they did. I love eggplant parmesan and I only ate half of the portion they gave me. It was one of the worst eggplant parmesan I ever had. One of my son's buddy had gnocchi with meat sauce which he had a few bites of. He said the meat sauce didn't even taste like meat. Really? Another had the shrimp fettucine with cream sauce--too salty. I can go on and on. Never come back!! So very disappointed.

    Fiorillo’s is one of those great restaurants for dinner with family and friends. The have a very good wine list and a good liquor list. I would like to see them add Oban 14yo to the list, but that is hardly a distinguishing characteristic. The menu offers a great selection, and the food never disappoints. Finally, the service is very good. I travel to Santa Clara a couple of times a year. I try to dine at Fiorillo's once each time.

    Sat night dinner was great. Food, service, wine, dessert were all superb. There wasn't a banquet going on that night, so I can't speak to the comments others have made about difficulty finding a parking spot or wait staff being preoccupied. This was a wonderful surprise to find a place where every single table of patrons seemed to know each other and the staff. Will definitely come again.

    Wonderful as usual! The only thing I would change would be if a substitute is requested, (replacing the pasta for a scoop of your potatoes instead) that I wouldn't be told that there might be an 'extra charge. If I was replacing pasta with 'Lobster' okay, fair deal. The other is tacky...

    Our reservation was on a Saturday evening. There was a wedding and it appeared that there was not sufficient staff to accommodate the wedding and the dinning room quests - especially the bar. Wait staff is too eager to get your order and get you out - hoover and start clearing the tables while some our still eating. Food was very good and very reasonable priced.

    Great place for a family dinner. Menu is broad enough to please most everyone without stretching the kitchen's limits. Clamari appetizer is done well and tasty, although slightly on the bland side (could use a bit more seasoning. Even a little cracked pepper would do). Pastas are phenomenal. This time, tried the New Contadina dish which is essentially sliced potatoes topped with a smorgasbord of meats (sausage, beef, chicken and shrimp) in a dry marinara. Nicely done. Quite large servings so there is always plenty to bring home. Small but palatable wine list. Worth a visit!

    We were the first customers at 4 pm. The bruschetta was the favorite appetizer but the calamari was dry and chewy, as if it was frozen and reheated. The main dishes of veal and sole were ok- apparently we were supposed to get the seafood platter. The desserts were a home run with a great chocolate cake, spumoni and cannoli.

    We found this place on Yelp & booked through Opentable for a 10:15 reservation. We were meeting friends after a soccer game so specifically looked for a place that offered late reservations. We could have booked an 11:15pm table which, thankfully, we did not. When we got there, the place was nearly empty and we were rushed through our dinner. We had to order drinks & dinner by 10:25 as the waiter told us the kitchen was closing at 10:30. Why offer a 10:15 reservation if you only give us 15 minutes to order appetizers, dinner, drinks and dessert? Very disappointed, will not be back.
