Full scale lunch menu, including lighter faire like salads and pizzas. i had the mussels and my lunch partner had salad. Both were very good. Although the mussels were slightly overcooked, the sauce was excellent. I recommend this restaurant and bet that it would be good for dinner too.

Simple restaurant with Boston and NY pictures reflecting the owners' origins. Good pizza, salads and pasta dishes. Great chicken wings and bread. Consistently good and reasonably priced. Easy to park (in shopping mall) and very nice service.

Sole ristorante italiaino

Reviewed By Bob F

Sole is a very small local Italian restaurant that seats about 30 people inside and about 12 outside under their heat lamps. It has kind of a straight forward, no non-sense vibe putting the emphasis on the food rather than the decor although it is clean, bright and attractively laid out. We've eaten there regularly and have never been disappointed whether having the pasta or meat dishes. The wine list is not extensive however their are some fairly priced good Italian Wines such as Chianti Classico Reserve and a nice Sangiavese. They set the table with a 'bottle' of chilled water, bread and tomato style dipping sauce. Waitresses are accommodating and friendly although they seem very busy. Reservations are almost always a must as we've seen groups turned away that did not have them. This would have gotten a 5 star were it not for the sometimes noisy customers in a small space. This is a hidden gem with fair prices and great food.

Trattoria da Vittorio

Reviewed By Boomdoc787yahoo

Great atmosphere in a open kitchen arrangement. Pleasant luncheon can be quite enjoyable. Great paninis and homemade bruschetta created make for a nourishing meal. A very noisy happy hour presented every day from 3 to 6pm. Bar area fills quickly and service lags. A quiet corner to conduct conversation much more desirable. Reservations recommended especially in the evening. Delicious appetizers offered like charcuterie or salmon bruschetta makes for a great starter to share. Outside seating probably best only in warm weather. Sizable portions are served along with elegant Italian red wines like Montepulciano or Amarone. Astute service throughout. Do not pass up on their daily specials whether lunch or dinner. They tend to be plentiful and very flavorful. For example stuffed homemade ravioli or homemade seafood pastas. Try it !!! Gluten free pasta on request. Vegetarians will be happy here. Huge variety to pick from. Desserts like cannoli or sorbet good choice. Mangia Mangia !!!

My friends brought me here to see if they could convince me that Totos did a good approximation of East Coast NY pizza, and I have to admit that they do. Not the very best imitation out here, but still a very good pizza at good prices and for a good size pie. This is a chain with other locations.

This urbane and upscale pizza and Italian small-plates place is something the Peninsula has been waiting for. I'm usually a traditionalist when it comes to pizza toppings, but even their more unusual versions--sausage with honey!--work like a charm and ar

Reviewed By schmutaki

Had high expectations for this popular, upscale pizza place. Was very noisy and crowded mid week. Interesting pizzas with peaches and cherries. Wish the crust was crispy and they turned on the air conditioning on a hot day. Seems like California pizza places under cook their crusts. Good stop after visiting Stanford.

Divino Ristorante

Reviewed By hszt79277

If you are looking for authentic Italian food, Divino is as good as it gets. The restaurant was recommended by a friend as a "must try". The humble looking restaurant deceives what lays ahead as you embark in the tasting of their culinary experience. Ingredients looked fresh and every dish was a palate explosion of flavor which did not lack on presentation. The appetizers are so tasty, you do not want to move on to the main course....but once you do, you cant wait for more! You can taste the chef is experienced. If you are lucky enough to try them, dont miss the grilled calamari or the Prosciutto with melon as an appetizer. If you rather a salad, the capressa salad was very tasty. Please do not miss at least one pasta dish, I had a combination of gnocchi with cream of Gorgonzola and penne pasta with sausage and peas pink sauce....simply delightful. The service was impeccable; the owner was there making sure we were well taken care of, we really recommend this place. In Spanish, Divino means Delicious....The name is very well represented. Do not miss it!

Vivace Ristorante

Reviewed By Larry-Calif

Looking for something different for lunch, we headed for Vivace Restaurant at Belmont. Ambiance -Very comfortable cozy place. We sat in one of the booths in the far dining room with excellent view of the front window. Food - Bruschetta - Roma tomatoes, roasted yellow and red bell peppers, capers, and olive oil on crostini - very good and nice blend of flavorsFritto Misto - fried calamari and vegetables with smoked chili aioli - very crispy calamariKale Salad - baby kale, dried cranberry, roasted walnut halves, and cheese - great mixture of textureFish of the Day - salute snapper with garlic mashed potatoes and spinach - fish was fresh and deliciousService- Wait staff were efficient and courteous. They cane by several tines to refill the water or freshen the cup of coffee. Away from the usual downtown spots and mall lunch places, I enjoyed my LUNCH SPOT JEWEL... at Vivace Restaurant in Belmont.
