This special restaurant is a must for an enjoyable evening out on a date or with out with family & friends. The service is courteous, prompt and respectful. The pizzas are the best. A light crust that’s crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The interior design and ambience is warm and cozy yet modern and full of personality. A treasure amongst Walnut Creek’s big business restaurants!

Always great food and good service. Check the out on Wednesday as they have a great $25 prefix and the city parking is free.

I usually don’t write reviews, but had a great experience and wanted to share it. Our server was outstanding and when we left to get into our Lyft, our server came running out with my jacket that I had left behind. That’s “above and beyond” and a great sign that the servers there care about their customers. I will be back!

The food was good. Pizza crust delicious- light and crisp and flavorful toppings. We didn’t order very much and in our party and we each paid $30 for four shared plates and one glass of wine. We thought that was high. The salad was small... why was that so expensive??

Very high quality Italian. Limited menu choices, but what's offered is excellent and nice portions even when split.

We usually dine there prior to a show at the Lesher Center.

Last Sat. we had:
Assorted Salumi - nice and tasty selection
Grilled Brussel Sprouts.. crunchy and flavorful
Eggplant and pasta, the paccheri tasted home made and the eggplant was wonderful.
Finished with a Margherita Pizza - excellent base - the dough had "pull", perfect sauce and cheese... really amongst the best in the Bay Area.

Great for food and service - would be a 5 star rating except for noise level in a small space. They have a small outside area and serve great breakfast pastries and dinners.

Our group of five were having a dinner before attending the performance at the nearby theater. WE chose 54 Mint Forno Italiano for its location and simple menu. WE all ordered pasta dishes that were all good flavors, priced correctly, and were very simple in their presentation. Would recommend this restaurant for its location to the theater and good pasta dishes and a variety of pizzas.

Food is simple but quite good. In prior times eating there, service was good. Let’s just say that the service we this time was less than helpful or efficient.

My husband and I eat at 54 Mint regularly. We love the food and service there. It never feels 'stuffy'; it feels like a 'neighborhood place to have excellent Italian food'.

I've always had a good experience 54 Mint and invited a friend for her first time. We both enjoyed our meals and appreciated the Wednesday night fixed price meal (house wine, salad, pizza or pasta). It was fresh well prepared food and a good value.

I am always impressed with their lunch and dinner selections. And I’m equally happy after every meal there. The restaurant is cozy and inviting, and the familiar wait staff is always helpful and kind. Fun for date nights and group get-togethers as well. Love this place.😁❤️

54 Mint is our "go-to" for super authentic Italian pizza and food in general. Their Carbonara Pizza and Avocado Salad are our favorites, but honestly, we've never had a bad meal! Service was great last Tuesday night (sorry I don't know our server's name but he a d the busser were both great).

A delightful dining experience and a great value. A classic neighborhood style restaurant with nice decor, bright atmosphere and quality service. The pastas we had were wonderful! And the brunette was made with fantastic, fresh tomatoes. I will be back!

54 Mint is our favorite pasta and Pizza spot. In hot evenings outdoor area is perfect and has low noise level.
Mushroom ravioli with truffle oil was excellent. We also love the avocado salad. Rose wine from Sicily was perfect for the warm evening. Waiters are efficient and service is always timely. I highly recommend 54 Mint if you like Italian pasta and or pizza.

Food and service were excellent! My only very minor complaint would be that they were out of a couple of things on the menu...
Outside of that we have a fantastic dinner!
