Four of us went for dinner and ordered a wide variety of dishes. One of us thoroughly enjoyed her food, another didn't say much, and two of us were a little disappointed. Cauliflower fritters were mashed rather than florets and the texture and mouth feel...More

Malfatti malfatti malfatti. OK there are other good things here but we ALWAYS order the malfatti. One large order split between two is perfect, as they are rather rich. Nice atmosphere, noise level is reasonable (4 people can hold a conversation). Menu is not run-of-the-mill,...More

Following a choral performance nearby, we decided to have an early dinner here on a Sunday evening. We had seen an encore review of Bellanico on "Check, Please Bay Area" restaurant review show on our local PBS station. It is even better than the reviews!...More

We ate dinner at this restaurant with family on a Monday night. It wasn't busy when we arrived, but appeared as if they had a lot of reservations for the evening. It seemed like a hassle for the staff to fit us in, but we...More

Not easy to find due to its size, but it's close to a corner. My wife had a pastrami s/w and I had a prosciutto with mozzarella s/w. They were BOTH excellent. Great service. And, I must say, very reasonable.

Nice Italian restaurant in Oakland on Park Blvd. Overall our meal was fair. Gnocchi with lamb sugo good, very rich, recommend the small portion, wife's pasta very good. Ferro salad outstanding, but my wife's water cress salad on the stale side. Three people at our...More

Came here on Friday night, mostly because this place was recommended by Michelin under what is called "bibe gourmande". We ordered 2 antipasti - a salad off specials and the Panna Cotta/heirloom/peach. The Panna Cotta antipasti was the highlight of the dishes. Panna Cotta is...More

We always over-order here, knowing we will either stuff ourselves or take home leftovers. Either way it's a win-win because you just don't want to limit yourself to two or three dishes. Start with the meatballs, which would be good. But these go a bit...More
