Food was good. Even on a quiet night service was slow. Probably would check out other options next time we are in Burlingame.

The ambiance was doll no background music, extremely bright for dinner. The waitress didn’t know her special and the Dessel was not good

Restaurant area could use a little work. The food was good, but could have been hotter. A neighboring table had the same dish and there's was piping hot. Overall we had a nice Valentine'd Day dinner. Not sure if I would go back.

First time at this venue, have gone to this location when it was Velvet Turtle and Kuletos. Building has been around, but the inside décor is very updated and clean. Strong smell of cleaning products when entered, but then I got used to it. Service was a bit slow, but was made up by the waiter. Not a large selection to choose from on the menu, slightly different on Open Table or Yelp menu. Food was fresh and innovative. I did not get a doggy bag, as the portions were ample. Nice wine and bar list.

Mediocore at best. Empty restaurant but still service was slow. With so many fantastic Italian restuaruants around, don't bother with this one.

I visit this restaurant at least once a year since the restaurant's opening. The menu changes seasonally and I like the current menu which has a good seafood selection.

The restaurant is not crowded and has plenty of parking. Nice interior with attentive customer service. Very enjoyable.

Food was good and the zinfandel house smooth.

The restaurant is very un attractive. Very stoic decor, if any. Needs plants, flower, paintings, something to make it attractive,elegant,confortable... No conducive to any thing. Our first and last time there,

The restaurant was in an ideal location for our clients who had just flow in to SFO. We were seated quickly and in a quiet spot as requested. The service was very good, not intrusive and staff kept the water glasses full. All entrees, Pappadelle, Gnocchi, Branzino and Risotto were solid dishes that everyone enjoyed. I would recommend this restaurant and go back when the opportunity presents itself.

My daughter and I had dinner on Saturday. My daughter really enjoyed her crab & pasta dish--creamy, rich and tasty. I had a seafood pasta dish which was equally tasty; however, it was disconcerting to have my pasta inked by the squid ink. Black pasta & sauce isn't appetizing to look at. I had to continually wipe my mouth for fear of a goth lip liner look. My teenager finally admonished, "Mom, bite and wipe." LOL The bread's delicious and the server, Alberto, was terrific--attentive, timely, and unobtrusive. I had dinner earlier in the week and asked Alberto about the honey vinegarette which wasn't listed on the menu. As it happens, it was specially made for the event I had attended and a batch was made for another event coming up. He kindly offered the vinegarette which my daughter and I loved. Excellent salad. I don't drink alcohol so cannot speak to the wine list. I'd return again.

Delicious as always! My husband and I love this place. We ordered salads and a pizza to share and it was perfect. The pepperoni pizza was one of the best pizzas I've had in a long time. The Nutella bread pudding was delicious.

Easy access, plenty of parking, and good ambiance/noise level for a business meeting.

Corn ravioli were excellent. Service attentive but not hovering.

Was our first time, won't be the last.

There are better options around I'm sure. The service was acceptable - they didn't seem to have my reservation - but the food was only OK.

The burrata didn't seem especially fresh, though the presentation was OK. The pasta was overcooked, though there was a lot of it, in fact I didn't eat it all.

Our server was great. The food was exactly as expected. The manager was very attentive!

1st time visit. Excellent. Went to the bar 1st. Huge bar. Wife had a wine and I grabbed a draft brew. Stated out with a carpaccio. Really good. No red onion, which for some reason most other Italian restaurants seem to use. I'm from Philly. Weaned on carpaccio. So don't know what these people out here are thinking about. There is no red onion in carpaccio. Wife had the smoked mussels and then a pizza, good pizza as they use a brick oven. I had an osso buco of the veal variety. Beautiful... bone up. Braised to a tender perfection and sat on polenta. I will be back.
The place was empty and I can't understand why other than it is not downtown Burlingame. Located off broadway near the car dealers so not a good location.

We have given this restaurant several tries, but have consistently been disappointed. It is usually practically empty, which should be an indicator of less than an enjoyable dining experience. The service was slow, wine/ beer options limited. We also found the menu to be limited, and mediocre. This will most likely be our last visit.

This restaurant is a wonderful place to have a quiet dinner with special people to have a nice night out. The place was friendly and warm.

Very nice place to go for dinner! All dishes were very very good!!

The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. Our only complaint is that is was freezing inside and they kept most of the doors open to clear out smoke from the kitchen area.

I think the restaurant was great. I'm a vegetarian and had three of the small plates (their Brussels sprouts are AMAZING), and it was a great dinner. The service was very good as well.

We had a reservation at 7:30 on Valentine's Day , didn't seat until 8:30 had to wait more than 1 hour !!! Services and food were good, but the fact we had to wait for more than 1 hour killed all expectations!!

Solid food , nice room , good service

From the moment my wife and I got there, it was great. We've eaten there before but the restaurant had a different name. Compared to menu from before, the new menu and chef is excellent and our server was great as well. We tried a recommendation from our server that was one of their specials and it was far better than we expected.

Had some large parties hidden in the back that greatly affected service, but the food was delicious and my waiter was clearly working hard. Would definitely go back.

Thought I would give this place another chance and the food was even worse than before. So salty and food took a lifetime to arrive. Too bad.

Had a wonderful dinner at Fattoria E Mare. The restaurant is on the frontage road of Highway 101. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful booth in the back of the restaurant. The service was fantastic. The hostess kept checking on us to be sure we were being taken good care of by her wait staff.

I recommend the back ink risotto. This is a not a dish you find on most Italian menus. The dish was outstanding!!! My girlfriend had a terrific pizza. Tell the waitress that you want to create your own pizza and they will make it for you.

We recommend this restaurant and look forward to our next visit,

Strange dining experience in that it was a completely empty restaurant with an other worldly everyone knew something you didn't and that's why they didn't eat there.

2.0Dined on October 10, 2016

I went to this restaurant the very week that they opened a couple years ago, I believe. At that time I felt that the food was rather good and was excited that there might be a nice new restaurant in this area. I can always tell about a place by how well they do their bolognese pasta, and it was very good.
On that first visit I chalked up the fact that they had just opened their doors and that they would get it together as far as service, especially. But on this recent visit I see it is still a bit odd. Not sure what all it is - there were only a few diners when I dined and the service was off, which should not be when they are not rushed and busy. Server did not seem to know how to discuss the menu - which was very same complaint I had on first visit. Poorly trained staff, no enthusiasm for their job. The layout of the place is odd and ambience is quite lacking. The prices are high for what you get I feel. I wonder how they are making it.

Nice place. I like it as an alternative to their steak house. Will return.

The waiter and staff at Frattoria E Mare were very accommodating for my father's 95th birthday and were able to provide slices of a delicious cake and a birthday candle without prior reservation. Everyone had a delightful and tasty meal. Kudos!

wonderful seafood platter with multiple and wonderful ingredients. Very healthy , fresh seafood and vegetables.

Fattoria e Mare is one of our regular spots for fine dining. We've been going there since it opened. Dining is superb: we've never been disappointed with food, service, or ambience. Bar area can be lots of fun when there's entertainment. Owner/chef chats with diners when possible and is very responsive to any needs or requests. We had a seventieth birthday party for a family member there a few months ago. We could not be happier with the extraordinary care they took to ensure everything was just right.

We'll definitely be back for more. Hope you'll be there too!

The food here was really good. The sweet corn ravioli and veal Bolognese were standouts. Although there was not a gluten free menu, special care was taken to meet the needs of the gluten free diner in our group.

Lovely service and delicious food cooked in the Venezia style..if something on the menu is not available then they will provide an outstanding substitute dish to leave fully satisfied and content :)

I would have given a higher rating, but they really need to work on better atmosphere and decor. Very general hotel feel for the room. Needs help!

The food was excellent much better than we thought it would be looking at the restaurant next to the freeway with the big tacky sign.

The server's suggestions were spot on.

The jazz music was superd.
