Wonderful local restaurant!

I was meeting a friend for dinner who was running late, but the hostess was very gracious and said not to worry. We were seated right away after my friend arrived. Barely had we sat down though, when water glasses were whisked onto tabletops, olive oil poured and fresh sourdough bread basket set down. The caprese salad was light and refreshing. We both ordered the linguine with jumbo shrimp, garlic bread crumbs, olives and tomatoes. The flavors blended together well - definitely will be ordering this dish again! Dessert was a chocolate ganache-style cake, vanillla gelato and raspberry drizzles - was surprised at how light the chocolate cake tasted. Also, water glasses were subtlely refilled all evening without request; we stayed past closing but never felt rushed out. Overall, would definitely rate this as a wonderful neighborhood gem - both in terms of food and service!

Great Italian on the Peninsula

The food was excellent, I have nothing bad to say! The best bruschetta I've ever had, among other items on the menu. The waitstaff was very attentive and was never too much. The one criticism I had was that the hostess was not as pleasant as she should have been.

Great Downtown San Mateo Italian Restaurant

Great food, reasonable prices, and wonderful ambiance. Try the oysters & the carpaccio for appetizers, awesome! What more could you ask for?

We loved it all!

We have been traveling through California and searched the web to find a place to eat tonight. We came across this website and the reviews regarding Capellini Ristorante. We went and could not have been more pleased!

From the moment we walked in we were struck with the pleasant staff and the romantic ambiance. Candles adorned each table with warm lighting throughout the rest of the room. The wine list offered numerous California wines. As an appetizer we ordered the Bruschetta. It was the best we have ever had! I wish I could describe it elegantly, but all I can say is YUM!! I could just about make a meal out it! I ordered Linquine Con Vongole Blanco (linguine with clams in a white wine cream sauce) and it was fantastic. My husband ordered lasagne. He said it was nearly as good as mine (I believe he was lying to not hurt my feelings)...He repeatedly kept saying how wonderful it was. For dessert we ordered the Creme Brulee. WOW!! I have never had Creme Brulee with strawberries. It was phenomenal!! This was one of those meals we kept talking about how good it was! For everything we ordered (plus sodas) we paid $50 before tip. We found that to be quite reasonable for the food an service that we recieved. We can't recommend this restaurant enough!! If you are in San Mateo (or nearby) you have got to enjoy a meal with them!

LACK OF SERVICE

First we were ignored while the hostess puttered around-when she finally came over-she didn't even say hello-just stared blankly at us. OUr waiter was equally inattentive-taking our orders, and then not returning until we were done eating when he asked if we wanted another drink. DOn't waste your time here.

Tasty Italian in downtown San Mateo

Even on week days, Capellini is packed, so be sure to make a reservation. Otherwise, you can eat at the bar. The papardelle with smoked duck is great, if not a little too drenched in sweet chili oil. Other pasta dishes are pretty standard fare that you can get at Kuleto's and the like. Prices are in the $12-18 range. The service is professional, attentive, yet not hovering. The restaurant is loud and energetic, so it's a great place for gatherings with friends and family, but go somewhere else if you're after a quiet, romantic time.
