I was not sure what to expect but I was very pleased with the food, ambiance and service. There were three of us and my 10 year old niece. All of us had different items from the menu.

We received a gift card so we tried out the restaurant. The place was clean, nice atmosphere, and the staff were very friendly. The menu and price was average for an Italian restaurant. The server was very friendly to my family (two kids). The food came out in decent time and it tasted good. The portions were on the smaller... More

I found this "locals" restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try for breakfast. Wow, what a great menu. Lots of choices and reasonable prices. It was a Wednesday morning and we were surprised to see the restaurant was full (always a good sign). The service was friendly and fast. It is located in the center of... More

Lovely little restraunt, very affordable (I paid $25 for wine, clams, pasta, and bread). Their service was tip notch and friendly, and I felt very comfortable eating there alone.

If you love Italian food you must try this place. Everything tastes fresh and clean. Looks like a mom and pop coffee shop from the outside. I was quite surprised when I got inside. First class setting and the food was excellent. Great service and the place has a wonderful ambiance.

West Coast Cafe is a family favorite, providing great service and hearty, Italian cuisine. The location in Down Town San Bruno makes it especially stand-out, since the area is has not been known for the best quality of products or services in the past. Although pricey, the quaint restaurant serves as a romantic spot, worth a little extra for a... More

We ate here with my kids and the food was delicious. My husband ordered calamari - he was expecting the breaded kind but it came in a tomato sauce. It was delicious. It was a bit expensive for the amount you get, and there is no kids menu, but the food was great. For the kids they offer half orders.

Outstanding staff, so willing to go the extra step for there customers. So reasonablely priced, excellent food and great wine list. Daily specials and deserts pleasing to the palette!!! So comfortable, bring... More
