A wonderful Italian restaurant
I have been looking for a good italian restaurant with a great marinara sauce like I had on the East coast.
This is a family owned restaurant with a long history of perfecting their recipes. We had fried ravioli and stuffed mushrooms for appetizers. The ravioli's were great - not greasy - and after we finished, we proceeded to eat the sauce with a spoon (i think even the place-mat would have been good in that sauce). The crab stuffed mushrooms were also excellent.
For our main courses we had a seabass special and veal parmigana. The fish was light with a light white sauce with pasta and a green veggie. The veal was as I remember it. Breaded and fried then covered with sauce and cheese and then baked.
We had no room for dessert.

Fantastic service and the food has always been consistantly delicious. Mushrooms bordelaise and deep fried ravioli are a few of our favorite appetizers, The marinated bistro filet salad, you've got to try it. The filet is flavored very well. I could go on and on, Crab bordelaise, Italian baked jumbo prawns, chicken marsala, veal scallopini. We love the desserts as well.

Great food and service
We had our daughter's graduation here and it was wonderful! I was able to bring my own cake - Maria our server cut it up and had the leftovers boxed up for us.
We all had a great time !

Great find in Santa Clara
Nice table option, service was prompt, requested to substitute and it was done with no issue, a bit disappointed on the wine list and when asked the service only replied to what was on the list; food was outstanding! Would come back and have told my friends and co-workers. Plan on coming down for dinner with my wife from South San Francisco.

This is my fifth time at this Santa Clara gem. The chicken piccata is delicious. The four of us had a delightful evening. Everyone loved his food. It was quiet and people were respectful. We had a large booth which afforded us plenty of room. Our waiter, Jesse, was professional and friendly. Get off of the sofa and GO!

Getting the family together
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.

Nice neighborhood restaurant
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!

Our reservation was on a Saturday
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.

A Little Castle...
Enjoy very good Italian food at Fiorillo's! It was our first time for eating at this restaurant, but will easly be going back because of the delicious meal we had and the amount of food was awesome... And the service, oh it was just great! Friendly staff! Plus, the noise level never got bad even with a table of about fourteen people close by us. Clean too! Enjoyed...

Yummy dinner....one exception.
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...

The seating was immediate, the service was fast, and the food was hot and as ordered, you could not ask for anything better in a local restaurant. Only working in San Jose, I have made this my go to Italian joint. I have and will recommend this place to other colleagues.
