I like this restaurant, but it seems that they are loosing their personality, as they opened several small branch restaurants in the city. My impression is that they changed from a hand made food, to a fast-food style. Prices are about the average and service...More

Food is neither good, nor bad. Crowded, stifling and small place is complemented by letargic service. Overpriced. All in all: poor.

The Cantina da Nena is a very traditional italian restaurant in SJC. It's been there for years, always providing guests with a friendly service, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices. Our favorite dish is the "Gnocchi 4 queijos", always well prepared and enough for a couple.

The restaurant offers good service as well as good food. Also, the variety is ok when you go at lunch time (you don't necessarily need to choose Italian food) as they have all sorts of dishes. Price is reasonable considering what is offered. I recommend!
