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 (2003-2013 Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence), Vivace creates a wonderful dining experience in which the gastronomia of Northern Italy is celebrated everyday!

Located at the corner of 15th and K, Capitol Garage is within walking distance of the capitol, convention center and Sacramento community theater, and has been a midtown icon for over 19 years. The menu spans the globe and has an eclectic mix to satisfy your culinary desires! Chef Jonathan Clemons uses only the finest ingredients in his crowd pleasing dishes and offers them to you at an affordable price. Grab and go pasta salads, deli wraps and green salads are available for those who are looking for a quick bite, and be sure not miss our delicious selection of house made artisan chocolates and indulgent cheesecakes, and our Weekend Brunch is the talk of the town with mouthwatering items such as the Louisiana benedict with spicy sausage and our ode to Elvis Presley, peanut butter banana French toast.

Felidia is located in a converted Brownstone on 58th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Opened in 1981 by Lidia Bastianich, Felidia offers a warm atmosphere where you can still find Lidia greeting guests and fans. <br /><br />Executive Chef Fortunato Nicotra has been with Felidia since 1996 and has brought an innovative touch to traditional ingredients and dishes from all the regions of Italy. <br /><br />Some of the restaurant's signature dishes include pear and fresh pecorino ravioli, veal shank ossobucco and limoncello tiramisu. <br />Felidia also offers a delicious three course price-fixed lunch, Monday - Friday for $29.50 per person, making the restaurant great for business lunches or just a nice afternoon treat. <br /><br />For parties of 8 or more, Felidia offers our group dining menu rather than the a la carte menu. The group dining menu is a four course menu and includes our most popular dishes and seasonal favorites for $95.00 per person. <br /><br />

"Having watched Lidia's TV program(s) for years I was really looking forward to dining at Felidia. Weather was awful. Service was very attentive and helpful.
Food was trendier than it was great.

Ristorante Divino, located in Belmont on Ralston one block North of El Camino, offers true regional cuisine of modern Italy. We are open for Lunch Tues-Fri and Dinner Tues-Sun. The knowledgeable staff and incredible food allow for a memorable dining experience. Chef/Owner Vincenzo Cucco's kitchen is born from a love of all that is Italian in both traditional and creative cuisine. From the homemade to the seasonal variety, Cucco's tempered cuisine is considered one of the best in the Bay Area. Divino promises to become a destination restaurant.Ask about our special events and private dining room.
