great food, come hungry and/or thirsty
if you are looking for the best italian food in the east bay, I would go to tullio's. the food is wonderful and the portions are bigger than what your used to. the restaurant is owned by by a italian family that clearly takes pride in taking care of the people who come in and join them. they have great salads, fresh bread, giant well made sandwiches and all kinds of great dinner plates. but if none of that matters to you, they also have arguably the best pizza in walnut creek, an assortment of beers on tap, and many great wines. of course like any great place your going to have to wait a few minutes during peak hours, but everytime i come here with my friends and family we all have a great time, drink great wine, and have a great time. easy to get to off the freeway too.
