Read the reviews before coming and they seem pretty hit or miss. Came here on Saturday and got super lucky to get parking right up front. There are about 7 parking spaces in the plaza, then you're either parking on the street which isn't ideal given it's really busy. Interior was pretty nice, better than I expected and service was...

Lunch here: decent, good service, not busy. Evrrything fresh, just did not think the taste was real good. Caeser salad was best part. Pasta only fair..had penne. Some people may like taste more than me.

We called fairly last minute and asked if they could accommodate a group of 35 adults and kids. They quickly assembled tables for our group and treated us very well. One server took care of our group and he did a nice job filling drink orders and making sure all our food orders were correct. The food was good, too.... More

Was planning on dining on pasta, but was so disappointed. I was seated quickly. There were only 3 other occupied tables and 4 servers. I waited for 15 minutes, trying to make eye contact with a server failed, so I got up to leave. When a server noticed she came right over and asked if she could take my drink... More

We had a great meal, plus Wednesday's are half price bottles of wine! The food was good, the Butternut squash ravioli was great, and everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. Service was awesome, we sat out on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful evening. Would definitely go back. Close to SAP center if your looking for nearby eats.

I ate here with my fellow volunteers, and the food is quite decent but unremarkable. Reliable Italian.

We discovered Pasta Pomodoro walking from our motel on The Alemeda, almost missing it, but very glad we found it. It is a local destination, mixed with families, couples, friends, and singles....plus delicious food. The bread and pesto were perfect, and our entrees were too: sustainably raised salmon over cannellini and baby kale, and fetticcuni alfredo with chicken. Both were... More

Had the lunch menu. Food was good. Service was okay (sodas weren't refilled). Nice, clean atmosphere. Don't park in the front, it's easier to park in the back.

Kale salad was quite good. Calzone was not served with sauce. Not very good. Service started out fine and then the waitress disappeared. Had to go inside to get someone to give us the check so we could pay to leave.

This place is consistently delicious and one of the better "chain" type of italian restaurants around. This location in particular is in a charming part of "The Alameda" and is also close to downtown making it all the better to experience some old world San Jose nostalgia. They have beautifully preserved the brick interiors and extra 60-70's art deco facade.... More
