PYLOS is a consistently superior experience in terms of food quality, professional service and comfortable ambiance. Their dips are amazing. Their specials are amazing. Their Greek standards are amazing. Having eaten there many times it is always a pleasure to return. Highly recommended.

About the restaurant
Here at Sushi Jin, we honor the continued tradition of the Edomae-style and incorporate new elements and the highest-quality ingredients into our menu today as we combine old traditions with new ideas. Our unique style inherits the taste that has been passed down from multiple generations and embraces the unique flavors to elevate the modern palette. Sushi is truly the connection between the heart and soul of Japanese food.. “eating the memory of each season”.

The fish was good, some of the items were great, I'd say in the top 20% category. Not mind-blowing, but also, not in the most expensive category. The restaurant is less than fancy, which can be good for some occasions and diners, it's in a strip mall with a Safeway and hard to find, and they had some EDM-like trancey music playing which wasn't my favorite. Still pleased with the overall experience, and would come again.

About the restaurant
"Delizie" meaning delicious, is an enthusiastic endeavor to preserve sacred family traditions & bring delight to peoples’ plates far beyond Italy's borders. Hailing from Calabria, the infamous "toe" of the Italian peninsula where the mountains meet a breathtaking coastline, owner Francesco Ruggiero brings to life the richness of this southern region's culinary heritage, introducing & reacquainting others with an irresistible array of savory flavors & vibrant aromas. Using a combination of carefully selected imports & fresh, locally grown ingredients, you can indulge to your heart's desire in a variety of homemade pastas & traditional dishes. To render the meal complete pair your food with an appealing wine from a list featuring Italian & Californian wines that best suit your palate. The restaurant itself maintains a cozy, relaxed, yet elegant feel that invites others to join in the ambience that comes to life when the simplest things are brought to the table: good food, wine & people.

We had an extraordinary waiter, Rolando, who was so responsive to our dietary restrictions, and so pleasant. The food was wonderful, and we appreciate the outdoor parquet.

About the restaurant
Naschmarkt (NASH-MARKed) is a family-owned and operated premier and authentic restaurant that has been proudly serving the Campbell area and beyond since June 2011. Since then, our mission has been to provide high-quality food for all those that wish to combine fun and enjoyable ambiance with skillful cooking into one extraordinary dining experience.

The restaurant is named after the largest open-air produce market in Vienna, Austria. Austria’s history and geography influence much of its cuisine. Austria was once the center of the large Austro-Hungarian Empire stretching from France to Russia and from the Baltic Sea to Turkey, imparting a varied heritage to Austria's cuisine. Located in the center of Europe, Austria’s modern-day cuisine is influenced by surrounding countries like Germany, Hungary, Italy, and even France.

First time at this establishment was memorable for service and food. I was able to try a Belgian ale on tap that I had heard about. The wait staff was excellent and gave us recommendations on their menu. Will go again and enjoy the experience. We watched the Giants/ Dodgers game and two America cup football games while we ate.
