We go here once a month or so for past 15 years. Food is ALWAYS consistently great and wide variety of choices. Aziz and Diego are the best waiters ever! Always remembers you....then again we are big tippers... :-) Start off with a Grey Goose...More

Eight of us (from the East Bay area) recently went to Carpaccio after attending a performance at the Mountain View Center - as it's not that far away and on our way home. They really made you feel welcome from the moment we stepped inside...More

Looked inviting from the seat so walked in. Staff attentive and food delivered. My partner's veal and mushroom dish excellent and my cheese ravioli with walnuts sauce even better. Great value for money!

We had eaten at this restaurant some 16 years ago, and the food was very good. However, since that time nothing has changed except the quality of the food. Same plastic flowers, all decor exactly the same. The food however was not more than fair....More

Several visits, always the same service level. The food is acceptable, which means at this price level, it is good, just not memorable or great. The washing machine art is interesting, overall an acceptable place for dinner with friends. Inside seating is small, as is...More

On the upper end of what you'd expect from a "family style Italian restaurant". Menu offerings are diverse, and all the dishes we sampled (pizza, Salmon, Angel hair pasta) were good. The place was very crowded (on a friday night) and they ran out of...More

My family (two teenage girls) all agree that this is the best Italian food on the mid-peninsula. The interior design must have been one of Pat Kuleto's first jobs and you can tell that not much has changed. It feels like walking back into the...More
