We had a terrible experience here. The service was very bad. The hostess was rude. I asked very nicely for an outdoor table because of COVID, and she not only snapped at me and put me down, she then continued to give me dirty looks thereafter. The waitress was not rude, but only came up to us once, literally, when she took our order. Once she took our order, she ignored us completely, walking by repeatedly, never once asking whether we needed our wine refilled or whether our food was ok. Worse yet, the Caesar salad with prawns that I ordered was disgusting. The lettuce was wilted as if it had been sitting out for more than a day and had a glob of what tasted like mayonnaise in the middle of it. It also had cheap smelly mushy anchovies sitting on top of cold halved soft-boiled eggs. It appeared that someone deliberately placed them on top of the eggs, making the cold eggs taste fishy and terrible. The prawns tasted off and smelled very fishy to the degree that they smelled up the entire table area. I say all of this as a devoted fan of fish and seafood. Good seafood is not supposed to smell bad. After I ate some of the salad, as much as I could manage, I developed and terrible painful stomachache, which continued throughout the rest of the meal. As I was in the restroom, a different staff member told my boyfriend to "Wrap it up!" because they are leaving soon. To note, we came in for a 7:30 pm reservation, ate at a reasonable pace, and paid $167 for a meal for 2 with no dessert or coffee. The desserts were premade sitting in a glass cabinet at the entry to the restaurant. We didn't risk ordering one but heard the people next to us requesting their money back for their desserts and only receiving their money back for one of them. To be fair, the rose I ordered was okay though the pour was the size of a tasting, and the shishito pepper appetizer was good. All in all, however, those don't make up for the other issues, and this was a terrible experience.

Amazing PIZZA! I grew up in Boston. This is now my go to place since I’ve never eaten pizza in CA. Game changer! After nearly 22 years in CA I finally can have a pizza worth eating!

What a great time had by all of our party (7 of us). COVID preparedness was spot-on...we felt very safe. Meatballs and the steak special were the highlights on the food side not to mention the calamari, buratta, and margherita pizza...the black cherry ice cream was truly delicious!!!

Our server Erin (sp?) was super friendly and helpful as was the entire wait staff.

Lastly, the wines were great, of notice were the Merlot and Cab.

Definitely not Napa but great job San Carlos!

I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. Everything at the restaurant is highly organized and I appreciate the attention to detail from the restaurant. The atmosphere was comfortable and calming. As for the food, the pizza is the BEST! I ordered the calamari and it was cold when it was sent to my table that arrived fairly quickly. The rest of the food arrived quickly.

It took them five minutes to greet us after we arrived and then told we almost missed our reservation window. We were told we should respect the 90 minute rule (verbalized and also in writing next to our table) and then leave. The tables were not six feet apart. The high chair that came had food on it- had not been wiped down or sanitized. Our pizza was late- apparently it had been burnt so the waitress brought bread and didn’t check on us until after the meal was over (would have been nice to get a drink with dinner). Waitress brought a tablet for us to pay and lowest tip we could choose was 18%. Not a great experience, especially when we barely get out. We won’t be back.

Our second visit was even better than the first. The boardwalk pizza was perfectly made, and it might just be the best pizza we've ever had anywhere. We are DEFINITELY going back again. Oh, and they are super careful with their COVID-19 precautions.

Was so happy to take my mom out at last but was disappointed that at first our reservation was not going to be honored. Then we were offered a table in the 100 degree sun or a couch! My mother who is 93 could have done neither. Then a table opened up thankful. The service was very nice & we loved dining on the veranda.

Friendly, delicious outdoor seating. The peach burrata and wines were delicious! Our pizza reminded me of both Italy and New York with fresh tomatoes! I look forward to returning and leaving room for their dessert panna cotta!

We had a wonderful meal as always. We ordered 3 appetizers: marinated Castlevetrano olives, shishito peppers with the spicy aioli and garlic lemon aioli,and the 2 cheese and 1 meat appetizer board which also included more olives, marcona almonds, house made tomato jam and grilled bread. For dinner we had the burrata appetizer, the NY white pie, the truffle arugula pie and grilled chicken caesar salad. We shared a bottle of Chardonnay, a bottle of Rose and a bottle of Pellegrino with the meal. Everything was top notch as always!! We will be back soon!

Under the circumstances (Covid-19) Domenico have really made an effort to make people comfortable and feel safe. The food is really good; peach salad, pasta, pizza, all excellent and the wine menu is broad and of good quality to pair up with whatever you order.

Our group was so happy just to be able to go out and eat together. We had a great experience, they had a table set up for us so we were sitting apart from each other. They are really good about people wearing masks if they are not sitting at their table, and the staff all wore masks and gloves. There were no menus that other people have touched, you upload the menu on your cellphone to order from. The food, service and wine were amazing and we are definitely going back!
