Two years later, still a solid choice for Italian in San Jose. Entrees were all very good, most good-sized portions. I'd stay away from the apps (bruschetta was disappointing and over-priced). Still great service and atmosphere, albeit a bit noisy at busier times.

Lovely front porch feel, in spite of a larger, busier road on the side of the restaurant. But the porch itself faces a quiet street, and is quite nice on a warm evening
