Success! Thanks for posting your review of Piacere. You’ve done the world some good today.

A must have experience!

Great atmosphere and outstanding service. Romantic but yet family oriented. The food was out of this world... A must have experience! For me and my party of 30 people was fairly easy to find parking.\r Brett Fairbanks is awesome to work with and very accommodating, he made our Christmas Party a Success. Thanks Brett!!!

Go somewhere else!

What a mistake-not a good place to eat. No parking, and while all the staff was friendly and helpful-the food was so not worth the $. The caesar salad was fine, but small. The skirt steak was tough, and the flavor wasn't worth all the chewing it took. The wine they recommended with it was a poor choice. The desserts were the worst-when there is a chocolate cake I won't eat, it's pretty bad. My sister had the lemon ta... view more

Below average, try elsewhere

Thr food was uninspired and quite frankly not very good. Service was somewhere between disinterested and incompetent. Our server wanted to take our dinner order without offering to take a beverege order first or explain the specials. When asked whether there were any specials, he said something to the effect of ""Oh, I'll have to go check"" and disappeared for 15 minutes, still not having taken a drink order. Whe... view more

Watch your belongings

While the food and ambience could be described as adequate, the service and service practices leave much to be desired.\r \r On a recent date evening at Piacere, my glasses and sunglasses were left at our table. \r Despite the fact that we were pretty much the last couple out, AND that we had the waiters name, neither of the items ever re-appeared. Rather the management insisted, that we lost them somewhere else -... view more

Best outdoor on Laurel

World best wine list in San Carlos? I red about them on San Carlos Educational Fund web site. They are the top sponsors for San Carlos schools for 15 years\r I had been to Piacere a few times before my most recent visit this past Tuesday, but this was first occasion at which I actually sat down for a full meal. What was I thinking, waiting all these years?\r \r They have full Bar but It's true, though, you can en... view more

Two strikes and you're out

My wife and I dined at Piacere around Christmas. It was a disaster. Bad food. Bad service. My wife had previously also had a so-so experience there. Being a slow learner or a forgiving sort, I wanted to give them another chance. I recently dined there solo to give them a final try. While my meal was not disastrous, it certainly didn't merit a third strike. I ordered a salad and gnocchi. The salad was unremarkable.... view more

Too Bad it was SOO bad.

We have been there a couple of times and we decided this last time we had to give this place a review. Save your time! Who cares about the money... the evening starts off with the parking, which there is none. The bouquet of flowers in the entrance are gorgeous but still can not make-up for our late and lousy food. The wait staff know nothing about pairing wine and food. With so many other places, why go here? W... view more

Better than ever

Loved it before the remodle, even better now. The shortribs were some of the best I have ever had. Excellent wine list!

Average Food, City Prices, ""Cool"" Room

My wife and I were regulars at Piacere before they ""refreshed"" the design and expanded. Among the crowd of Italian restaurants in San Carlos this was our favorite. They recently closed to rebuild and have opened with a ""cool"" new look. If you like crisp, modern design you will probably appreciate the look. If you like your modern with some warmth then this is a miss (cool sometimes means cold). Foodwise, the tast... view more

what a pleasure

Piacere is really a very fine place to dine. The food is so enjoyable, and the service is really so complete, that I know it was important to my waiter that I remember my time with great pleasure. Whenever I am in the area, I will always hope to have time in my busy schedule to come by again. Please keep up the good work. I know it is a difficult undertaking, and you are to be highly complimented. Thank you Piac... view more
