Went to san remo despite previous warnings and found that the place is just plain bad. i overlooked previous reviews of this restaurant willing to give it a try and i am sad to say a lot of it was just like the reviews i had heard or seen. the restaurant tries its best to jam as many people into a small establishment as possible and those who don't fit inside are sent outside crammed onto the sidewalk. Service was not great and the prices were a bit high. The manager / owner? was yelling at his staff and treating the customers in a brash way. If there ever was a soup nazi of italian food this man would be him. the food was nothing great as well, its food we make at home for much less and in a nicer atmosphere. As we were sitting one person said they had heard of a person getting sick at this place as well. Overall a not so great night having not so great food. Yeah it was a night out on the town but I'd look to dine elsewhere, there are many other place to enjoy and life is too short to eat at such a place. Sorry San Remo, just because you have been doing pizza for a long time it does not mean you are doing it better than everyone else. You are banking on your history to get customers when you should spend more on quality and service.
I live in San Carlos and had some friends from Menlo Park come visit on 9/2/07. We had heard San Remo Pizzeria and Ristorante was good, so we headed downtown to enjoy some dinner. Between our two families we had a party of 9, 5 of whom were children. Upon asking for a table, the hostess went back into the kitchen and returned to tell us that they didn't have any tables for a party of our size. Walking past several tables that could easily accommodate us, and I headed to the back to speak with the owner. He said that he didn't serve parties with that many children any longer! I stood there in shock, not believing what I was hearing. I walked out of the restaurant with my one-year old son in my arms blown away at the stupidity. As I walked out, passing several large parties enjoying dinner outside, I just felt sad for the owner's outlook on life. If you support the family, I encourage you not to patronize this business.

Fun Place. The atmosphere indoors and outdoors has strong european flavor. The staff who greets and serves have italian accents which add to the experience. It is a very busy ristorante, but service is right on point. Authentic, old world style italian food. They served us bruchetta on toast that was to die for. Our entrees were veal parmagana, lasagne, pizza. They were warm, hearty and flavorful. The salad for one is huge and served in a big bowl that you toss yourself and can share. The wine is served in the short glasses that true Italians drink from.
It really makes you feel like you are dining in Italy.
If you are looking for trendy fusion-this is not the place. If you want a little taste of Italy, come here.

This pizza is as good as it gets. I challenge all New Yorkers to eat here.
The style is what I call San Francisco-Italian. That means that you get the delicate flavor of a real Italian pizza combined with a modified version of the more substantial crust of a New York style pizza. The crust is medium thin in the center with the telltale puffy edges that signify a truly angelic pizza. The center is just thick enough to stand up to the toppings, but is not overly crispy like an Italian pie, yet not overly doughy like even New Yorks best.
Once you appreciate the artistry that went to produce this marvelously well-balanced style, youll never want any other. Is that the best pizza you ever had? I asked a New Yorker. His reply: I wont admit it, but I cant deny it!
Say Hi to Rudy for me!

I had their meat and spinach ravioli, my fiance had a made to order pizza. BY FAR, his pizza was better. The marinara sauce on the ravioli tasted canned but the dinner salad that they serve in a bowl for the whole table was awesome...a great antipasto mix. It's fun and a hang out for the locals and if I had to choose between this and some chain restaurant I would choose San Remo. Give it a try, you might find a jem on the menu and make it your favorite.
