Stopped in to kill time and see the ex mayor Bosco. He is stuffed and used as a beer tap. Has a good beer selection, had the Bear Republic Racer IPA. Always been a div bar.

We stopped here for a late lunch. It was quiet with only a handful of customers eating and drinking. We ordered the Cajun red snapper (very flavorful) and the French dip sandwich (tender and delicious) that the bartender/server recommended. The server was professional, personable, and efficient. We loved the chocolate coffee ice cream pie with its yummy Oreo cookie crust.

After holding our wedding rehearsal lunch here way back in 2008, last night was the first night I had eaten at Bosco's since the day before the ball and chain were happily attached to my ankle. At 7:30 pm, the restaurant was deserted even though cars pass by taking the shortcut from Niles Canyon through Sunol on to Pleasanton. Drivers... More

We are out of state visitors and dropped in to Bosco's last week for fish and chips which is a favorite to try everywhere we go. It was the best and we went back again yesterday and found it equally pleasing. Also tried the ribs and bread pudding which was to die for. Friendly service and awesome home cooking. A... More

Good place before or after the train. Don't forget to visit Bosco in the bar. It can get busy when the train is running. The service is good and the menu has a decent selection for mostly Italian food. The parking is mostly across the street if you don't luck out in front.

Sunol is sunol. They elected a dog to be their mayor and now he is stuffed at the bar and is a beer dispenser. We've eaten in the restaurant a few times and it has always been good. Their roast beef is a signature dish. Admittedly we haven't been in a while and I heard a rumor of an ownership... More

Sunol is a little old style village at the base of the hills above Fremont and San Jose. A little old style American pub, A little like the way to west movies. The staff were much the same, old school cowboys. Servings were huge, steaks and ribs very tender.

This is just like a bar you'd find driving through Eastern Nevada, except no hookers. Laid back, good music on the weekend nights and good bar fare. Good friendly service and if you're there to watch a sporting event they have tvs. But I enjoy a burger and brew (from Bosco's lifted leg) and be around people who are just... More
