Wonderful Italian experience with great atmosphere and customer service!. My wife and I went there for the first time and fell in love with the place. The atmosphere is romantic and the food is excellent - best Italian cuisine around. The service was attentive and friendly. The gnocchi was just perfect and full of flavor and my pasta with shellfish was very light with a rich tomato broth with the shellfish cooked to perfection. This will be our romantic date get away from now on!
Good place to decompress from your troubles or work. My wife and I love this place. We are "regulars" and have been for many years. The food is excellant and Pino always comes up with his "specials" to surprise his friends.The service we have always considered one of the top reasons for repeating our visits and we have a very at home feeling there. I can say, without reservation, it is one of my favorite places after a long day or a special occasion. You will find it as special as I do I am certain. Grazie.
This restaurant has seen better days. The food, atmosphere and service were significantly better a couple of years ago. Menu changes, price changes and an overall change in the "vibe" of A Bellagio has turned it into a restaurant that I no longer visit. Maybe they were trying to compete with the other restaurants on Campbell Avenue. Maybe they no longer care. All I know is that I have taken my business elsewhere.
Best Italian food you'll find at a restaurant!!!!!!!!!. I'm proud to be italian, but have a hard time finding a restaurant outside of Grandpa's house that makes it as good as he does. This place does it. It is by far the best Italian food I haven't eaten at a restaurant, and has some fierce competition with grandpa. I just happen to try it a couple years ago with my father and we've been regulars ever since. I feel like I've known the owner since childhood, he is an amazing guy. If your looking for authentic italian, not that italian american junk, this is the place! You won't be sorry.
Authentic Italian cuisine prepared with style...one of the best Silicon Valley restaurants. Like many World Cuisines, Italian cooking features "authentic" dishes as well as those created in America for American tastes. Chicken Parmigiana? It may be tasty, but it's not authentic Italian. In Italy, pasta is cooked "al dente" (literally, "to the tooth," with a slightly firmer texture at the center), and it is not smothered in red sauce. Once you've tried Fileto Allo Speck E Zola (Fillet of beef wrapped in speck and gorgonzola cheese) and Spaghetti Bellagio (Spaghetti, parmesan cheese, oregano, marinara, egg, prosciutto in cream sauce), you'll want to sample everything on the restaurant's tempting menu. Seafood lovers will appreciate the freshness of the Spaghetti all Scoglio (Pasta tossed with mussels, clams and prawns, sauteed in olive oil and garlic-based white wine marinara sauce, with a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley). The Insalata di Spinaci (Spinach Salad) is far above the ordinary, featuring Baby spinach, ribbons of browned pancetta topped with crumbled gorgonzola cheese in A Bellagio's house dressing. Owner Pino Spanu has invested considerable effort into creating a relaxing, visually appealing restaurant to showcase his culinary creations. He uses Angus beef and meats that are free of chemicals and hormones, as well as the freshest organic produce. In addition to soups, salads, antipasti and entrees, he offers a diverse list of Italian and American wines, tempting desserts such as tiramisu and the Italian version of flan, "Crema Catlana," plus a choice of Aperitifs and Espresso drinks to finish your meal. He's made several major upgrades to the interior of the restaurant in 2006 and continues to improve what is already a wonderful experience for Silicon Valley diners who seek a memorable (and delicious) experience.
A great casual evening.. This restaurant is great for casual evenings. The food is fantastic. Very simple and light. Not very fancy, but a great value.
I forgot I was in the U.S.. Going to A Bellagio Ristorante must be the best dinning experience I have had in a while. I felt as if I was in Northern Italy again. The serving staff was very attentive, and continued to go beyond the average service that you get at other restaurants. The food was awesome, as my dad would say " the food is so good it makes your tonue want to slap your brains out". I definately recommend this place if you are looking for good food and a great time.
Both of our meals were disappointing. My husband ordered Osso Bocco; the waitress raved about the meal. The amount of actual meat was miniscule and lots of fat (75%). The owner told us that this is authentic and that local Italians like to eat the fat and bone marrow. I ordered scallopini au funghi (veal scallopini wth mushrooms). It was over-cooked and bland.
Although the service was friendly and you get a lemon-drop shot after dinner, we will not return.
great. great food, warm atmosphere,staff makes you feel at home. better make reservations, this place is packed on weekends.
