Bella Mia Restaurant
hoodchip rated
This is a GREAT restaurant!

My lawyer, Jeff L, kept telling me about this place so I had to check it out. I was very impressed. Bella Mia is probably one of the biggest restaurants in Downtown San Jose with a huge formal grand ballroom with private bar, two "very clubby" inter-connected fireside club ...morerooms, (and thats just on the second floor). There's a hidden fountain garden patio as you enter from Second Street, you pass by a very open and "brassy" exhibition kitchen and casual style booth room section and then there's a formal tablecloth and white linen napkin dining room facing First Street. The bar entrance facing First Street is small but very elegant with very tall, well stocked, wine cabinets lining one wall and an even bigger mirrored back bar on the other wall. Who ever designed this restaurant had very good (and expensive) taste. Lots of mahogany stained solid woods accented by heavy brass . I used to be in the restaurant biz so I can appreciate the beauty in a well designed eatery. The menu is Italian and unlike most "cookie cutter" restaurants that are popular now, from what I learned on my visit, everything in the Bella Mia kitchen is made from scratch. The prices are fair for dining out with some very good filet steak specials on mid-week nights. While looking over the menu, my usual aperitif, Compari and soda with a twist was served promptly in a heavy rocks glass. As recommended by the waiter, I tried a new lunch item on the menu, the rib steak sandwich with garlic fries. Grilled on an open flame and placed inside soft garlic French bread. This was one of the best steak sandwiches I have ever had and now I know where Gordon Biersch got the recipe for garlic fries. Try the fries with a side of ranch dressing dip and don't fill up on the warm foccacia bread and tasty cheesie spread before your meal arrives. The espresso was served as it should be, rich, strong and creamy with a twist of lemon and raw sugar cubes...the best. The service couldn't be any better for a Downtown restaurant. I hear Bella Mia is famous for other dishes (scallopini and parmigiana) with many reviews and write-ups from critics. "I'll be back soon"view less

Romano's Macaroni Grill

A friend and I had dinner at Macaroni Grill tonight, July 19, 2009. This was not our first visit and we chose to go back because of the great food and great service each time we have eaten there. Tonight our server was Micah who was very welcoming and answered our question...mores about any of the items on the menu. He was polite, friendly and a good waiter. In the restaurant all the waiters and receptionists are polite and make one feel very welcome. I believe a woman named Melanie was the Service Manager. She, too, was a pleasure to meet. I had Shrimp Cabonara and it was very good. The Caramel Apple Crisp is delicious, too. I have told many friends what a nice place Macaroni Grill in Eastridge is to go to for a good meal and great service. It is some distance from my home in Los Gatos, but it is worth the trip. If it were closer, I would probably eat there even more often. Thank you for an excellent meal served so professionally. Mrs. Carroll Shannonview less

Grande Pizzeria
dcholley1 rated
Grande's a SJSU Favorite

I have been going to Grande's for over 30 years. In that time period it has gone through 3 sets of owners. Each version had it's own flare, but in the current iteration it is still a great place to go for lunch or a casual dinner within site of San Jose State Universities Bo...moreccardo Gate at the corner of San Carlos and 4th St. The new owners have changed the menu a bit, and have really jazzed up the outside seating area to include a privacy wall and fountains. They make fabulous pizzas, calzones and scacciatas and a variety of Italian dishes including egg plant parmesan that are reasonably priced. The calamari and cheese sticks are favorites as is the Grande Burger (formerly the Super Burger) one of the best that you will find near campus. The staff are friendly and attentive and will accommodate you if you need to hurry things along to make the next class. A definite 4 out of 5 for San Jose casual eating joints. 11/09view less
