From Business: Zocca offers contemporary Italian cuisine, fine wine, and cocktails at one of the most scenic spots on San Antonio’s renowned Riverwalk, where towering cypress trees shade the restaurant’s riverside patio. Zocca’s casually elegant interior of burnished copper, rich wood, and handsome onyx panels creates a relaxed, welcomin…

As a native of Chicago, I am extremely fond of Italian beef sandwiches and it's usually a struggle to find a quality product outside of Chicago. I must say that Donnie's Italian beef has all the qualities of a beef sandwich I'd get in Chicago. Well done Donnie's ... thanks for getting it right…

Worst pizza and service. We waited for 1 pizza, wings and chef salad to be delivered for 1 1/2 hours. Finally came, forgot chef salad. Called the place. Was told they will get someone to deliver it. Waited again and they never delivered the salad. Pizza was delivered cold. Hardly no sauce in piz…

I ordered off of grubhub, and the guy knocked on my door, gave me my food, and then literally ran away before I had a chance to even say thank you. I checked the order and they had the wrong dessert and forgot my pizza. I called the restaurant and told the lady about that, and she said, "let me …

I am born and raised in Chicago. I used to have to go home once a year to fill up on my favorite foods from there. After eating at this place I can have my favorites all the time. It is definitely a taste of Chicago!! I have not had a bad plate yet! The beef sandwich is better than back home, th…

This is absolutely one of the best restaurants in San Antonio. The food is always exceptional with a great choice of specials every night. The price is good and staff is friendly. Also check out Bistro Vitel and Le Frite. All in the same group, all wonderful.

It was very delicious!! I ordered the chicken parmesan and I loved it. It was a bit much for me to finish but it was great for a late night snack. My husband got the spaghetti bake and ordered meatballs on the side, that was also very good. You have to try the stuffed mushrooms, those were my fa…

This is the first time I have ever been so disappointed in service that I felt compelled to write a review. My husband and I were visiting the city for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. After exploring many dining options on the Riverwalk, we chose Italia. It had a nice ups…

I am not sure if many places...especially of the fast food sorts...would fit the bill for a 5-star rating. Still, Podna's Catfish and Po'Boys was an easy choice for a top rating. Having spent 6 months living in San Antonio, this place became one of my favorites. Although it is a place that could be easily overlooked on Austin Highway, and generally would not be fit for a 30 minute lunch if you work downtown, I found as many opportunities to go back as my co-workers would allow. The food in general is really good, but of course, you should shoot for the po'boys. My favorite was the 12" 1/2 fried oyster, 1/2 fried shrimp. Whatever you choose, it is overflowing with meat, the roll that it comes in is fresh and the sauce that you can add on your own is great. The fries weren't necessarily my favorite, but they are still really tasty and not overly fried or salty. This is a pretty basic restaurant, and watch out for the high noon lunches, as it might be difficult to find a table. But the staff is really nice and the owner, who willingly shares about his visit to New Orleans which led to the start of his business, is definitely a friendly character. Although I was never that rushed, they even have a drive-through, and I have heard that you can call in orders and have them cater. Now, I am off to new eating adventures in Dallas, TX as a next step in my own professional pursuits, but Podna's will definitely be on my list when I take my next trip to SA.
From the moment we walked in the door of Lorenzo’s the atmosphere, friendliness and outstanding service was beyond our expectations. As a member of the Shania Twain Band I have had the great opportunity to enjoy Italian cuisine all over the world. As well, having been raised in New York in the “old Italian neighborhood” my expectations for Italian restaurant food is significantly higher than most people. I particularly enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, the quiet and classic old time style of Lorenzo’s reminded me of many of my childhood meals in New York’s “Little Italy” neighborhood. I myself had Lasagna that was authentic and very tasty (I especially enjoyed the extra sauce they provided on the side). The serving size was remarkable, the garlic bread was abundant and served piping hot. I highly recommend the house Italian salad dressing--it was nearly as good as good as I remember my grandmother’s being--just the right touch of olive oil and spices to enhance the salad that contained not only tomatoes, but also olives, green peppers and other veggies. My dinner guest found the Manicotti equally as delicious as I found my Lasagna. There was no wait time, service was five-star and the selections and/or choices the menu provided were the best I’ve seen in any Italian restaurant in Texas. If you are looking for excellent food, great service, and very reasonable prices Lorenzo’s is your best bet. Giovanni G. Bonanno Malibu Beach, California
I really liked what I ordered there. It was a crape with chicken and a creamy orangy sauce(which was tamato mixed with alfredo) and I believe there was spinach in the crape as well. Of course I have eaten enough Italian to know that I like that particular kind of dish. If you don't eat a lot of pastas and sauces I would suggest asking the waiter/waitress what they recommend from what you usually like/dislike. My husband on the other hand didnt know what he was getting and ended up getting something without a whole lot of flavor. I believe it was chicken and artichoke hearts in linguine, with olive oil as the sauce (I imagine with other herbs as well) but it was too bland for him and I had to give him some of my sauce. Definately a nice, and relatively in-exspensive place to eat. Its prices compete well with other finer places around. maybe 10-15$ a plate. I give it a big thumbs up!
I have consistently found that the best restaurants are those that are small and owned and managed by families. Piccolo's is just such a place. The atmosphere is like those places in New Orleans, New York, or San Francisco, where the whole thing is the food - making sure it is well-prepared, fresh, served quickly, and at a reasonable price. The sauces are always freshly prepared, and the fish is not "fishy." The wait staff is efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. The decor is what you'd expect in a family-owned restaurant - thematic, not fancy, but with a pleasing personality. About the food. Every dish I've had there is delightful in its blend and balance of sauces, cheeses, and spices. I'm planning on having everything in the menu eventually. I would like to have a bigger choice of desserts, but that's a minor issue.
Across from the Hotel Valencia this little deli exceeded my expectations. We were waiting for the valet and I spied this deli across the street. I asked the girl at the counter for something quick and delicious. She suggested the Unforgettable Druthers (turkey, cream cheese, bacon, sprouts, tomato, and avocado) and Kenny's Klub (turkey, bacon, onion, tomato) sandwiches. When I got in the car my boyfriend and I split the Unforgettable Druthers first. Who knew sprouts could be so good. Later on we shared the Klub and that was amazingly good too. All I have to say that I am glad the valet took forever with our car. If he hadn't we might have never had the pleasure of eating here. Love the food, will be back next time I am in town. I can't wait to try those sandwiches from the grill! :)
My brother and his wife went to for their Anniversary a few days ago and I was looking to take my wife for her Birthday Meson was recommended we choose to give it a try and we're happy we did. The food, ambiance, service and the staff were great. We have the le, escargo as appetizer, the house salad (Organic spring mix) Service with the French vinaigrette, my wife had the Lamb and I had the grilled New York cut of beef served with the bernaise sauce, a bottle of Little Black Dress wine which was very good for $21.00 I spoke with the owner who is from Dominican Republic and he said that they moved from the Zavala where they open on 1995 now they have being in the new location since 2008.Any way we enjoy everything there and will be back and tell every badge we know to give a try.
Now When we want a nice diner or lunch we go to Meson. The food is very very good we was there a few days ago for diner and to day we went for lunch We ordered the Ceasar Salad for two prepared table side and their lunch day special which was crab meat sauteed with a reduction of batter and wine with a hint of east indian spices, friend order the grilled salmon which was fresh and juicy, the Ice Tea and lemonade was the best we ever have, we complement the waiter and he said they use Kangen Water to make their tea, coffee and their thing in the restaurant. They have a full bar with very large wine list at very good price and private room for meeting. The place is beautiful and the people are nice. We recommend
Everything was great food and service but the only thing that bothered us was that the employees that had finished their shifts sat down in the booth in front of us and ordered food and bottles of wine and they were being very loud and talking in such vulger language I was trying to have a respectable evening and romantic dinner with my husband but it was ruined. The employees had states to their friends that later joined them that they're not suppose to be drinking after work but that sometimes they get away with it.. Their should be a break room for them to go in our at least i'm an empty section poof the restaurant not bothering the paying customers
Pleasantly impressed! I went to lunch here today with a group of coworkers. We had a great time. The food was good, I didn't hear one complaint. The focaccia bread served with the meal was excellent. I had the special today which was Chicken & Eggplant Parmigiana. It was very good. The pasta was cooked perfectly aldente. The chicken was not particularly juicy alone, but any dryness was not noticeable when eaten along with the slice of eggplant served on top of the chicken cutlet. The red sauce was also good. I tasted a coworkers dish of tortellini pesto (also on special), it was good too. I will likely return to this establishment.
I have lived in San Antonio for 15 years, I moved here from New York and could never find a pizza I liked they all tasted just like Pizza Hut. I recently ate at the new pizza place off University Heights and could not have been happier there pizzas where made with fresh ingredients. The pizzas where thin and crispy and full of flavor they had fresh pieces of tomatoe on all of there pizzas and it added so much more flavor. I would recomend this place to anyone who enjoys new york style pizza its not greasy and has a very fresh taste. Not only is the pizza outstanding they have a full bar and happy hour. Deffinantly go try this place!!!
