Worst pasta/pizza place I ever went.
I and my wife went there on a Friday night. We ordered a pasta and a pizza.
The pasta is too expensive (~$15) given it's quantity and quality (angel hair pasta a little over-cooked). I'd rather go to Pomodoro or Cheese Cake Factory for pasta.
The worst part is the pizza. It is under-baked and there are too much juice left on the pie. When I pull up a piece of pizza, the cheese and tomato just come off the slice and the slice was dripping!
My wife decided to give it another chance by ordering a creme brule. It has a lot of strawberry on top of it, which seems nice. But there was a 3mm thick burned caramel beneath it and I have to get rid of the caramel crust.
The food here is a shame.
By the way, the guests of two other tables also couldn't finish the food and boxed the left over. Guess what, the guests of both tables "forgot" to take the boxes when they left.
A cozy welcome to "my neighborhood.". A cozy welcome to "my neighborhood."
The Food Mio Vicino means "my neighborhood" in Italian, and that about sums up the kind of place Mio Vicino is trying to be. Pastas sometimes miss the mark with improbable combinations, but the Caesar salad, pizzas, and tiramisu have a broad following. Kids won't go for the pancetta-wrapped radicchio, so while you're tucking into that, order them a cheese pie. The house wine, Mio Red, is big, fruity, and a great value.
The Scene There are three outlets of this family-friendly Italian restaurant. The one in Campbell is located in the Old Town area with a view of the water tower. An open kitchen keeps the place lively, especially for those cozied up at a counter seat. The flagship Santa Clara spot has pretty yellow brick walls and lots of windows and the Willow Glen location is bigger, with a rich, earthtone interior.
