Great Food & Excellent Wine – Excellent Northern Italian food with even better wines!! Located in the Hotel De Anza in downtown SJ.
Worst Meal I Ever Had – My husband and I dined at La Pastaia before a concert last night. This was quite simply the worst meal we've ever had. The bread they brought out looked delicious. Unfortunately, it tasted like paste. Both of our meals were vile. My husband had a shrimp pasta dish. The shrimp were very tiny and were of the frozen, shrimp cocktail variety. The sauce tasted fishy and disgusting. I had a grilled veggie pasta. The veggies were way overcooked and were the consistentency of baby food and the pasta looked like it had been sitting out for an hour before I got it. The rest of our dinner consisted of a flavorless soup and a very small salad. Other things to note: poor quality, small portions, exorbitant prices for low quality food, poor service and a high noise factor. I do not recommend this place at all.
Sweet Romance – Set into a cozy corner of the Hotel De Anza, in downtown San Jose, is where will find this restaurant. A place warm with good service and meals to impress anyone with a curious palete. Come alone or with that special someone, you will not be disappointed. But don't trust my opinon, find out for yourself.
I love this place! – This place has the best food in such a great, romantic atmosphere! My favorite date restaurant. I also love to come here for brunch in the indoor courtyard.
