    We were sat immediately for our 7:15 reservation. Our table was right in front of the door on a relatively cold January evening so that blast that hit us each time patrons came and went wasn’t pleasant but we endured because there weren’t many other options (crowded Friday night) and we’d heard the food was legit. Folks weren’t lying! The fresh burrata cheese on crustini was worth the price - delicate melt in your mouth texture to start us off. Our waiter helped us pair a nice Italian red with the appetizers - shared arugula salad and fresh beet salad. Then a nice dry white wine with the fungi pizza also split between the two of us. We finished off the meal with a sweet dessert like a caramel ice cream bar, covered in chocolate, recommended by our waiter, plus a cappuccino. It was indulgent, delicious, and thank goodness for the gift card that a former client had given us for half the price, otherwise we could never have afforded it! But if you can swing the dollars, you should definitely roll through…

    I'll come back for the pizza every time ! But the price point for the entrees and wine I felt was high for the value; and the tables are so close I struggled to keep up with conversation at my table. Overall, a good place to dine.

    We will absolutely be back and bring friends! The brussels sprouts were amazing, as were the pizzas and the burrata appetizer. Really flavorful and presented beautifully. The red wine and beer recommended by our server were really great, too. The service was easy and attentive. The restaurant space is capacious and the sound level surprisingly low. It was a very comforting place, and the food and wine were terrific. We will be regulars at A16!

    My kiddo and I came in on a whim and had a pizza here once, and promised each other we would come back. This time we not only had pizza, which was excellent again, but decided on the halibut as well which was also delicious! The service was super friendly too. All in all a great experience.

    The worst fine dining experience I’ve ever had (55 years all over the world). Signed up for fixed price Festa of 7 Fishes Xmas Eve and it was chaos. Food served before wine opened and poured, a disappearing waitperson, three of us served the same amount of food as the couple doing same Festa as us, small bowls and though we started at 7 they were so slow we couldn’t leave until after 10. The octopus salad became a squid salad, the clams in a dish were two mussels, both the halibut and dessert cake slice were two bites, and of the 7 courses only two were good, a chestnut soup and a bit of bacala. No manager around after 10, the tip for three was an automatic 20% so the meal without wine was $450+. One oyster, two mussels, a few bites of fish, 5 roe eggs, et al. Never going back to SPQR or either A16. Get your act together!!

    My first time at A16 with my Bestie. We enjoyed everything! The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas 🎄🎅🏻 Lighting, music and ambience for me is a big important part of any dining or drinking experience.....whether at home or in a restaurant or bar. A16 hit it on all counts!!!! Loved it. Service was very good and we really liked our server. We ordered wine and a cocktail, a kale salad for a starter (I'm crazy for kale my favorite green, and we both had wood fired margherita pizzas. Even though the restaurant and bar were packed we felt service and food delivery was very good. We enjoyed the pizzas and even had to take some home since the pizzas are 6 slices. I am looking forward to my next return trip back to A16. One of my new East Bay faves.

    4 of us were happy with most everything except the food. Pizza (3 different ones) had very little taste or toppings, the crust was thick and very chewy. The roasted Calamari was a joke, mostly beans , very little Calamari. The meatballs were ok but not great, very thin watery sauce, not much flavor. Seriously, with those prices you’d expect more. The 20% surcharge/tip is offensive. What if I order a $100 bottle of wine. Will I get charged $20 to open it. Tipping is optional for great service and should be at the discretion of the guest.

    Restaurant was lively and decorated beautiful for the holidays. We had a great dinner, my husband and I split a salad and a pizza. Despite our attentive and polite server, our drinks didn’t make it until we were onto our second main course. This was about 40 minutes or so after we sat down. We were told the bar was slammed, but honestly haven worked as a teenager and college kid and many restaurants and bars…it wasn’t at all an excuse nor should it have been. They should have had an additional bartender working, sometimes they do this so the bartenders can make a ridiculous amount of money while the patrons just have to wait. Same w servers. They did cover our drinks but it truly nearly ruined the whole experience. So my recommendation is to order drinks as soon as you can, even before you are seated if you are waiting for a table. And then again when your server comes!

    Parked at the parking lot adjacent to the restaurant. I must have left an laptop sleeve in plain view, because it was missing later, and my car was broken into. Restaurant could at least warn unsuspecting customers of such break-ins.

    Everything we ordered was amazing! Fried calvestrano olives, burrata, calamari, and pizza (funghi.) The service was impeccable—I especially loved that no one rushed us or hovered. We had reserved an outdoor table but we moved to a small table inside-the street/traffic etc was too noisy (I have hearing loss so background noise is hard.) So we sat at an “extra” table which was fine except I was cold-bit of a breeze every time the door opened. But the food and service more than made up for it. The wine was also excellent. We will be back-and will reserve a table inside this time:)

    My friend and I had a reservation for 5:30 pm for 2, which is not the busiest time of the evening. When we arrived, the hostess tried to seat us at the bar, even though there were clearly tables for 2 open in the dining room. When we asked to be seated in the dining room, the hostess said she would need to speak to the head hostess. Shortly thereafter, the head hostess came dashing over and asked us rather loudly, “What is going on here?” When we explained we were waiting for a table in the dining room, the head hostess muttered something about how they had had to make a few changes, then walked off. The junior hostess came back and showed us to a table in the dining room, where we were seated. My friend and I happen to be two middle-aged, brown women . . . The food itself was mediocre. The Brussels sprouts were too salty, which is saying a lot because I am a salt addict. The Bianca pizza was mainly just cheese and not terribly interesting. All in all a not very satisfactory night for the prices we paid.

    This last visit to A16, we began with the arancini - little fried balls of risotto. I've had them before at other restaurants--but never like this. They were melt in your mouth delicious and the truffle aioli was a perfect dip rather than tomato sauce that can sometimes overwhelm the flavor of rice. I could have eaten three plates of them and called it a meal. The other major wow was the desserts. Two new pastries on the menu--Pumpkin Mille Foglie and Monte Bianco--brought me right back to European vacations where the desserts are creamy perfections, never overly sweet. Everything else, service and ambiance were all great, as usual, but these dishes stood out.
