I really enjoyed the food and service here. I had a wonderful mussels and shrimp appetizer in a white wine sauce which tasted great on the bread too!

The pasta dishes are also great - I had a pasta dish with crumbled lamb pieces - delicious.

The host and service staff are super friendly! Enjoy!

Great place for a good dinner before heading to Levi stadium. Next door to a nice hotel and within walking distance to the stadium. Wish they opened earlier than 5:00.

We were Seated and the service and food came out quickly. Ive never seen it so empty at this restaurant.
The heirloom tomato menu was inspiring, the meal was average/ I expected the based on prior experiences.

We've been here fairly regularly over the past five years. Pretty disappointed with the menu lately. There are currently only three selections for mains (not counting their Asparagus menu…blek! unless you like asparagus ). They removed the duck breast, lamb shank, pate tureen, Fair-ly Simple Martini (made with Fair quinoa vodka), and really have not replaced these with other compelling options. I'm hoping they can bring a new chef (who has better ideas than asparagus) to liven-up the menu. Besides being unremarkable and somewhat forgettable, our meal and the service were fine. We'll be back because Piatti is still the only decent place around (without dropping a mint for parking and a meal at Bourbon Steak).

Service was really poor. Server missed delivery of ordered items. Had to ask more than once. Food was undercooked. I had Cod and a colleague had a pizza that were not fully cooked.

What a great find. Just stumbled onto this restaurant a few weeks ago and have already been several times now. The food is fantastic, the place looks and feels awesome, and the wait staff is excellent. It's now my go-to place. Great job!

The arugula was more stems than actual leaves - unbeatable- do the chefs not see that??

The food was excellent; the service was spotty at times, but the experience was good. We were very distracted by a father who allowed his young toddler to wander around the restaurant, circling the tables, and getting in the way of customers and wait staff. This is very dangerous and annoying to customers.

Good value. Quality ingredients and quality preparation. Friendly and professional service.

Pet peeve that all restaurants seem to do: Removing a plate as soon as someone appears to be done. This then requires the person with no plate to watch the others eat and the people eating to feel rushed because there are others at the table with nothing to look at except the person eating. This used to be considered bad etiquette. When you have guests at your house do rush their plate away as soon as they are finished? I doubt it.

Lots of groups from work having dinner at this trendy restaurant which means the noise level is high. Wine selection was great and desserts were excellent, but main meal just mediocre.

The food and service was fantastic! Our server, Frank, was delightful. We mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary, and he surprised us with bread pudding and a scoop of coconut ice cream on top! We had the Tagliarini pasta, the Bolognase pasta, and polenta fries. Loved everything we ordered and completely cleaned our plates!

We definitely want to visit again for another special occasion.

Great food & service. They even accommodated my request for a non menu dish. I wanted a linguine Aglio Olio with shrimps,chopped tomatoes, onions & capers. It came out outstanding 😀👍. They replaced the linguini with a thinner fettuccini. But it was so good I suggested to the server to add that dish to the permanent menu😀👍🙏

Unfortunately the service was a bit slow, we were served a drink with a ton of huge grapefruit seeds in it, and the food was mediocre. The server was nice enough, and the manager was kind enough to take the worst dish and the bad drink off the bill. In the past, the food has been quite good, but I don’t believe I will be going back.

Overpriced and onions in every dish my husband and I ordered. Who puts strong, undercooked onions in black rice, brussels sprouts and risotto? The only part of my dinner not overwhelmed by onion flavor was the salmon. We left wreaking of onions and our stomachs feeling unsettled. Never going back.
