Spasso features Italian, Mediterranean cuisine and Tapas. Spasso has been a new favorite neighborhood destination located in San Carlos on Laurel Street. Spasso features an extensive Napa Valley and Italian wine selection, and a full bar with specialized cocktails are available. Our waitstaff are consistently friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. And, the atmosphere is lively and exciting.

"We've not eaten here for some time, only because Spasso isn't close by. Our wait was a little longer than we expected with reservations, but our dinner and service were as good as we remembered. We will not wait as long to return to Spasso."

Translated from the Italian language, Vivace means "lively", which is exactly the ambiance at Vivace Ristorante where culinary creations join with excellent wines to celebrate the cuisine of Northern Italy. Highly regarded as one of the best restaurants on the Peninsula, Vivace Ristorante is located in the charming city of Belmont. The warm interior is designed as to permit the viewing of the talented chefs as they prepare an array of Italian dishes with emphasis in the regions of Piemonte and Toscana. With its exceptional cuisine, elegant ambiance, high level of service, and extensive wine list (2003-2014 Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence), Vivace creates a wonderful dining experience in which the gastronomia of Northern Italy is celebrated everyday!

"Always a great meal. The food here is consistently good; We brought a couple of out of town and they cleaned their plates; they enjoyed the caesar and beet salad, and had entrees of baked eggplant and the special sea bass of the day. My husband and I also had the same salads with the orrichette pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe. The bread pudding with banana ice cream was to die for. The owner, Mike, welcomes you and visits during dinner, a nice touch."

Kincaid's translates the traditional fish, chop and steak house into contemporary terms. In a casually elegant atmosphere, the restaurant offers outstanding cuisine and impressive bay views. You'll find new classics, consistent excellence and a splash of swagger!

Osteria Coppa specializes in modern Italian cuisine, featuring artisanal pasta and hand-stretched pizza with a fresh, seasonal farm-to-table style. Farm fresh salads and appetizers, artisan cheeses, savory house-made sauces, and house cured salumi reflect Executive Chef Daniel Padilla's profound passion for making his cuisine from scratch using traditional, old world techniques. <br /><br />Relax in a casual, urban setting in the heart of downtown San Mateo. Grab a seat at the bar, dine table side indoors, join friends at the community table, or enjoy the sunshine outdoors (with overhead louvers, and heaters) on the festive “Coppa Cabana” patio!

"Our dinner was excellent this evening. We enjoy the seasonal dishes and look forward to seeing what is available. Our dinners tonight for a party of four consisted of a pizza, pappardelle with short ribs, lamb shanks with risotto and root veggies, and a bacon and pumpkin pasta. The bacon and pumpkin pasta was a terrific combination! We shared the salumi platter, for an appetizer, and a pumpkin bread pudding and an ice cream for dessert."

Seasonal & Delicious.<br /><br />With Paul Martin's American Grill, Brian Bennett and restaurateur Paul Fleming have realized a long-nurtured dream to create the restaurant "we've always wished was in our neighborhood." <br /><br />At the heart of all great food is fresh, local, peak of the season ingredients. Paul Martin's aims to serve diners the best ingredients with meat raised in a humane and wholesome way, locally sourced produce, the best of both wild and farmed fish, artisan cheeses and cured meats from small local purveyors. The deep California-centric wine list twists and turns, by glass or bottle, through the Golden State's vineyards, with an occasional stop for an Oregon Pinot Gris or a Washington dry Riesling. Behind Paul Martin's elegantly rustic bar is an interesting array of craft beer and spirited cocktails with fresh garnishes. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life at Paul Martin's American Grill.

"We had a reservation; they were very busy, and we waited about fifteen to twenty minutes for our table. We were seated at my requested table, however. Our server was very good and was our meal. My disappointment was the wine. They were out of one bottle of white wine that we requested, so we ordered another, only to find out that they were out of that one, too. Upon ordering our third choice, our soup and salad arrived. We, then, cancelled that bottle and ordered just a glass of red for our dinner. Our server apologized, but it wasn't her fault."
