Our waiter was very inattentive and standoffish. I believe he had too many tables one of which (by the fire pit) was a large group of very loud ladies which made our nice romantic dinner not so nice. He never said hello just "what do you want to drink"? Took our appetizer request (when I had to ask him if we could order something with our cocktails) and then we sat for over 30 minutes before he came back to take our dinner order and that was after asking the busboy to get him. I couldn't eat my entire entree and asked for a box which he never brought back until we paid our bill and we asked where our lasagna was. No I am sorry, nothing. He said, "hummm I wonder where it is"? It was our anniversary, it was noted in the Open Table reservation, but there was never any mention of it or happy anniversary on our paid dessert. Food was good. Service was not up to their standards.
Sat out on the patio on a warm summer evening. Both of us are gluten free and our dishes did not disappoint. Super yummy brussel sprouts for an appetizer and we both had gluten free pasta dishes finished off with a gluten free dessert. Heaven!
Best restaurant for the 4th of July to observe the parade. Great food any day.
Great, wonderful food, wonderful service, wonderful atmosphere
Thank you so much!
Always good and consistent in the food and service. Today was especially slow since most locals are on vacation during this time.
This restaurant used to have amazing food, this visit it was just fair at best...very disappointing
Had dinner Saturday night. The service wasn’t up to par; had to wait for a server to finally take our order, food was ok but the servings were small. We both had pasta and had to ask server for Parmesan cheese. Took a while to get cheese. Focaccia bread was stale. I was disappointed with the meal and probably will not return.
Great food great service favorite restaurant will always come back
Thank you! Looking forward to seeing you again.
Celebrating school project completion.
Mimosas are great
We agree, a mimosa is the best accompaniment to brunch.
Server was not not as attentive as expected.
Thank you for your comment. We will work on that.
Nice location, friendly staff, delicious presentation and hearty entrees. My husband and I enjoyed our group dinner of 6 people. Jeff, our waiter, recommended the perfect wine pairing (Jeff Carr, Napa) that was a nice surprise after having a lovely Italian wine. We'll be back!
Thank you for your great review. We look forward to your next visit.
Both mine and my wife’s main course was very salty. Can’t say it was bad or good. I will give props to the beet salad as that was delicious.
Unfortunately it really missed the mark. Food was just fine, but nothing to rave about. There were two servers on a Friday night. How do I know? Our waitress told us that it was only her and someone else. Service was therefore sacrificed and everything was timed very poorly.
So sorry we missed the mark for you while dining with us. We sure hope you come back for a five star experience.
Pros: Outside seating is quieter and very pleasant. Live music (singer) on weekends.
Cons: Overpriced for mediocre food. Had the cauliflower as an appetizer, small portion for $8, overcooked and boring. For dinner we chose the cappelini with fresh tomatoes and shrimp. It was tasty, but had a sticky consistency, and the shrimp were very small. Lease expensive bottle of wine, $38 for Malbec.
There are other better options.
We are so glad you enjoyed the outside patio and the live music. However, we are disappointed that you did not enjoy the food as much. We hope you will try us again for a five star experience.
Good all around experience
We have been here many times and I felt a little ignored this time. Our reservation was later in the evening and the restaurant cleared out pretty much before we even ordered. We were enjoying the company and a cocktail so it didn't bother us to much , I just think the waiter may have been really busy.
Thank you for letting us know. We aim to take care of all our guests timely, and apologize that we missed the mark this time. We hope you will join us again for a five star experience.
A wonderful restaurant for everyday and special occasion dining! The cocktails - especially the white wine sangria and peach mule - were enjoyable and not something available at other places. The spicy calamari was a very nice appetizer dish - most notable is the broth/sauce. While we really like both pasta courses, the linguine with clams dish was a very simple but extremely delicious course. All of "Secondi" choices were liked by all. However, the scallops - both in flavor and presentation - was the table winner.
Thank you very much for the great review. The cocktails and dishes you mentioned are all popular. Looking forward to your next visit.
our service was very slow but food and ambiance were great
Thank you for the feedback. We will work on improving that. We look forward to your next visit.
Best place in the east bay
Owners are the best
We dined outside on a moderately cool Saturday evening in early June, and we were quite comfortable. 7 of us celebrating a birthday. Live music outside was very nice. Service started out slow but the waiter became engaged and ended up doing quite well. Drinks were okay, not overly special. Food was good overall - some excellent pasta dishes, the appetizers were average. The restaurant provided a piece of a yummy cheesecake type of dessert for the birthday celebration. Overall a very nice experience and we would go back.
We went to Sunday Brunch with some friends who live in Danville on 5/24/19. Incontro Ristorante was a cool and inviting place that reminded us of going to a friend's house to eat. (Parking lot in the back of the restaurant is a plus). We were seated in what looked like a "wine room" off of the bar, which was beautiful, warm, and inviting. The breakfast buffet was set up in the adjoining room. There was a waffle & omelet bar and then 2 long tables with lots of food choices. Fresh fruit, fresh pastries, bacon, sausage, amazing tortellini, chicken Marsala, seafood pasta, a yogurt station, it was a beautiful selection of freshly prepared food, without being too much. Our Waiter, Jesus was lovely and very attentive!! Oh, and did I mention the price of Brunch includes Mamosas or coffee. At only $22.99 per person, this was a wonderful place to have a Sunday Brunch, and I'd love to go back to for dinner some time. Incontro also has outdoor seating in their patio area for when the weather is nice. The Owner was there as we left to ask if everything was good with our Brunch, and invited us back again when the weather is nice, he said there's music in the patio area. When in the area, I would definitely recommend Incontro.
The restaurant was quite busy and yet they had two servers. Our party of five was given meals at different time. Nothing was coordinated at all. My friend said she no longer wanted her pasta that came with her meal and the server had the nerve to tell her life was too short to be angry. She wasn’t even angry. She just told him it was too late and most of her meal had been eaten. The whole evening was a disappointment and I won’t return.
The food was superb! It was a quite place to sit with friends and visit. The service was great and the people were friendly. We will recommend it to friends and associates.
Greatly over priced for Mother's Day. Small insignificant servings for enormous price.
It was a pre set menu. The crab cake was the size of a melon ball. The flank steak was ok. The pasta was very ordinary. A big disappointment!
Food is OK. It was a Prix fixe lunch for Mother’s Day and way overpriced for ok small portioned food. They were they only one available for reservations since all the usuals were booked. When we got there it wasn’t even full and I guess people know. The place is kids friendly, especially in the patio outside. They can spill and scream and still won’t bother others much. If you are not a picky eater for star level food, willing to pay for slightly more upscale setting, and have kids and want to have a good time, this place is not a bad choice.
Brunch was great, party of 6 with 2 kids; service was wonderful
Great spot for a dinner with friends. We’ve been here a few times now and the food is good and the staff friendly and attentive.
Excellent as always, Easter Dinner was so perfect at our favorite spot, Incontro!!
Excellent food! The wait between courses was a bit long, but tolerable. We will definitely go back!
The food was wonderful, and the staff very attentive, I would recommend this restaurant!
Love this place
A wonderful experience for all the senses. Food is delicious, the staff attentive and the ambiance beautiful. We had a great time, can’t wait to go back 😀
Thank you for the great review! We look forward to your next visit.
Looking for amazing food, great atmosphere and a place to have a conversation? Look no further. The wait staff were amazing - did not rush us in any way. I met with friends whom we had not seen in awhile and had lots of catching up to do. We all had different dishes and each was excellent. I was brave and tried the Gin and marmalade cocktail - fabulous. A must try for gin enthisiasts
That's wonderful! Thank you. We agree about the Gin and Jam cocktail. We look forward to seeing you again.
The service was excellent as well as food. We had a great table at window.
Great meal and staff!
Had an issue with the table being wobbly and it was not great to see the server place our order at the wrong table. I love Incontro. Just would like to see the issues I spoke on cleared up.
Sunday brunch. Great food and good selection. Reasonable price. Will definitely go back.
