Sunday brunch/lunch is very good but I suggest you arrive before 11:00 AM as the restaurant can get noisy after noon.

We felt the food was overpriced, the eggplant parm was way to salty, and don’t even think of going there if you are vegan. $28 for a small plate of short rib ravioli that was mediocre at best.

Have eaten here before, will eat here again. Recently celebrated Grandma's 75th birthday with family and friends. Staff was helpful and accommodating throughout. We felt well taken care of right from our arrival. Everyone enjoyed their meals and drinks.

Wheelchair access was good, doorway and table were not a problem. Disabled bathroom was not attempted by our party, so can't speak to that in terms of access or ease of use.

Great service! Good food. We loved the chicken Diane and the steak and lobster. The chicken Parmesan seemed fried and was it great. Otherwise our experience was very good.

Friends came in from out of town and Pasta's was perfect. The service and meal was spot on. Disappointing that our first two choices on the wine list were out of stock, but we ended up with a nice alternative that complimented the meal.

Very disappointing experience! We went there for my mother's birthday.
Food was far from being of good quality. The chicken parm seamed to be boiled in oil. The N.Y. steak was very hard and the pasta sauce was just plain, with no real authentic taste of Italian pasta sauce.
I do not recommend this place for special occasions or to people that know how Italian food shood taste like.

Been going here since the 90s. Love the location in downtown Pleasanton. On warm nights, there's outdoor seating too. Favorite is the Cajun jumbo prawn linguine!

We usually have a very good experience at this restaurant. Today my water glass was dirty. They replaced it and then when they poured the wine I realized in my wifes wine glass was dirty. They replace the wine glass but then when my dinner arrived although it tasted very good, it was kind of cold and I had to have them reheat it.
Like I said, our experience is normally good here but today I cannot get them high marks

We arrived early but were seated right away at a very nice table. The waitress offered to make a special sauce for me and it was excellent. Other than the tables being too close together and a little loud it was an excellent dining experience. Friendly service and tasty food that's reasonably priced. Recommended.

Quiet atmosphere with yummy comfort food. Not a place to come if you are in a hurry - while service was attentive, it was slow. Nice for a relaxing unhurried dinner.

The first time we visited the restaurant, everything was perfect - the food, the ambience, the service..
We visited the restaurant on Dec 24th for a special occasion - we were seated at a table close to the door where there was a cold draft every time someone walked in and out. The food was sub par and no bread/breadsticks were offered while we waited for our appetizers and entrees to arrive.

Had a great experience here celebrating kids' piano recital. I was super high maintenance ordering a gluten free, no garlic, no onion dish. Waitress and chef totally worked with me in combining a few dishes into one and it was delicious! I'd go back just to reorder that same thing. Yum. Also, bartender accidentally poured 2 glasses of wine instead of the 1 I ordered - they could have easily tried to resell it to another customer but instead the waitress brought it to me and said "on the house!" So nice! Liked this place for sure will go back.

For how expensive the place was, I'd expect not to spend almost my entire meal with my water glass empty. I don't understand how they justify the high prices.

It wasn't the worst, but we were seated and then no waiter for 20 minutes. Not even a drink was offered. There were empty tables so it wasn't crazy busy and didn't make any sense as to the lack of attention. I had to grab another waiter to see if we were going to get a waited on and again no answer for another 15 minutes. We were about to walk out. The food was fine, but there really was a problem of communication. Our eventual waiter apologized but he was obviously thrown into taking another table he wasn't expecting.
