Always amazing!!!! The service and the food is outstanding and the atmosphere is so friendly !
Excellent food. Good service.
The service was very good, the ambiance was good, and the food was AMAZING. If you like good Italian food this place is for you.
My girlfriend and I have dined here before and it has always been spectacular. This was an anniversary so I selected Vespucci as it is a very special place. The owners pride themselves in fantastic food and service and they did not disappoint. Manuela knew it was an anniversary and presented us with a dessert that was unique and touching. I highly recommend
Love this place
We really enjoy Vespucci; the owners are so hospitable, and the food is delicious. Many of the dishes prepared are family recipes.
We had a pleasant and amiable meal whose hightllights were the very attentive service from the staff and the ability to have a normal conversation despite the site being mostly full. Some of this is attributable to the restaurant's patronage which are, like this writer, well along the path of seniority.
The service was very pleasant and personable. We actually had the owner come over and talk to us for a while. I really could not have asked for better service! The food was amazing as well. I had the lobster ravioli one of my friends had the lamb, and the other had the cioppino. We all were immensely happy with our selections. When they brought bread to the table, it came with a tomato dipping sauce that was absolutely heavenly. We had the tiramisu and the affogato for dessert and ate every last bite. I will definitely be back again! It was so nice to talk to the owner. I love the fact that this is a local business and not a chain restaurant. He definitely has done an amazing job with both the menu and wine selection.
Best place in the Peninsula. The owners are extremely warm inviting. The food is marvelous, a must try!
We have been here several times, and Vespucci never disappoints. Once again, I had their special. This time it was pork tenderloin medallions on a bed of polenta with a mushroom sauce. So satisfying, and comfort food at its best. My husband had a sausage pasta dish, and enjoyed it very much. Both our plates had no food remaining.
The owners are absolutely wonderful; warm and inviting. They make you feel as if you have been invited into their home for dinner. We will definitely be returning again.
Reunion with long ago friends
Birthday note was not acknowledged
Greeted by Manuela which is s real nice touch. Food was fabulous. I have recommended to everyone.
This charming Italian restaurant is everything one should hope for and expect in authenticity and spirit. The food is outstanding with a variety of pastas and entree favorites. The owners are gracious and committed to making their customers' experience memorable. We came all the way from the East Bay and will definitely come back!
Manuela was very polite and accommodating to start and put us in a nice table right in the middle. The service was good but we had to ask to get refills, etc. Excellent food and drinks and the desserts were delicious too. Will definitely return.
Exceptional and authentic italian food with outstanding service! My go-to restaurant when craving Italian or a great dining experience.
Vespucci is a little gem in downtown San Mateo. The food is always wonderful and the ambiance is warm and inviting.
Great engaging service from the owners and fantastic food.
Manuela And Francesco always make our dining experience an enjoyable one. They offer quite a few selections on gluten and dairy free meals. I would highly recommend this restaurant to my family and friends. Looking forward to many more dining experiences here in the near future!
Had very nice night along with a great dinner, very good food,service,and wine
Friendly hosts, attentive service, and STUNNING spaghetti carbonara.
The food was outstanding and the ambience of service was really great. Will go back in a heartbeat
Authentic Italian food with great service. Food tastes great!
I had been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time, my husband and I finally went and what a treat it was! First we were greeted by Manuela, who was so much fun to talk to, gave us a run down of the menu and her recommendations. Then Francesco came over and chatted with us, such a personal touch, I love that! The restaurant is beautiful and the food is outstanding. My husband had the filet of sole with a tomato risotto which was incredible. I had the special of the evening which was an orecchiette with a lamb ragu which was outstanding. All their pasta is homemade which is another plus. We had to try dessert , my husband had the affogato and I had the cannolis both of which were excellent. I can’t wait to go back and bring my friends!
Food is delicious. Appetizer is good but portion is small. Overall I will go back again to try other pastas.
Vespucci continues to be one of our favorite restaurants. We went tonight for Michael’s birthday and couldn’t think of going anywhere else!
The food is always good at Vespucci. Manuela and Francesco are warm and welcoming hosts and make this restaurant a friendly and enjoyable place to dine. The food is authentic Italian and the couple ensure that ingredients are fresh and dishes are prepared properly. We go there often with friends...usually a party of 4 or 6...and have never been disappointed. It's one of our favorite restaurants and I recommend it highly.
It is always a pleasure to go to Vespucci and see owners Manuela and Francesco. Our Friday night dinner was one of the best we’ve had in our many times there - the black ink pasta with seafood with every part of the dish prepared perfectly. We also enjoyed the Nutella puff pastry dessert which was incredible. There is no better authentic Italian in San Mateo!
Absolutely outstanding!!! Francisco and Manuela are teriffic host and make the evening very pleasant. Best Italian restaurant in the Bay Area..
Food was good but not outstanding. Service was excellent. We brought an incredibly good bottle of wine that deserved better food.
Delicious food and passionate owners - worth the trip!
Simply the best Italian food on the Peninusula, made more perfect by the lovely staff.
Friendly but, attentively lack of attention to customer. You have to ask in order for you to get service.
Unforgettable dining experience. Amazing meal, lovely hostess and good service. At some points it got a bit loud but not all the time. It’s the best Italian restaurant mid-peninsula.
My friends and I had a wonderful meal. The service was impeccable. The owner was attentive. All in all, it was a great time and experience.
This is a true Italian Restaurant with actual Italian speaking waiters. The owner is very pleasant and ensures that the dining experience is what you would expect. Service was great. We started with the Brushetta and Calamari Fritti which were both great appetizers. and then we each ordered something different: Gnocchi Gorgonzola, Eggplant Parmesan and the sole. We each enjoyed our meal. This was the first time visiting this restaurant and it won't be the last. It's an excellent find for a local San Mateo restaurant.
The owners and staff at Vespucci are warm and welcoming, they make you feel as though you’re being welcomed to their home. On a previous visit, one of the owners shared her story and told us about the origin of the recipes and dishes they serve, making our dining experience feel personal. We’ve enjoyed every meal we’ve had, pastas, veal, appetizers like the caprese or even a simple salad, and the desserts are divine. The food is beautifully presented and lovingly prepared. I recommend the bolognese and suggest leaving room for the tiramisu. It’s our go-to place for a lovely meal.
We've been here for 3 different occasions with 3 generations and everybody enjoys it. Beautiful scenery with nice music and the food is simply delicious and tasty. The staff is very respectful and really nice. If you go there, you are sure to have a good if not an excellent time.
Super good pastas. Very friendly and caring owners. Wine list needs work. Corkage is $25.
Been to this restaurant 6-7 times. Food is always exquisite. Service is great, never disappointed. A bit loud when busy, but the tasty food is worth it. I love this place and recommend it to both family and friends.
