"and we weren't disappointed!! Malfatti (gnudi) by some accounts is a Bay Area creation but its barely on the menu today Bellanico's malfatti was had wonderfully light touch with plenty of chard and an almost fluffy texture, perfectly matched by the sage brown butter. Burrata starter with nettle and ..."cipollini jam was creatively done with everything working together. Wine list has some great choices by the glass. Panna cotta dessert was delicious.
This is a neighborhood restaurant - the Glenview district has difficult parking and is not on any convenient public transit - but its well worth the visit - just plan on a little extra commute time.
And I have to compliment our friendly server, Nick, for a nice evening.
We'll be back to try the rest of the menu and the wine flights.

"I was on a layover in Oakland and took a walk down the street toward Jack London Square. Along the way we saw a sandwich board with offerings at Cafe Lizzi. We managed to sneak in just before they closed for the afternoon (2:30, I think) and were thrilled they stayed open for us. The owners are, as ..."I say above, delightful people. The mocha they made for me was perfect: a tall, warm glass full of chocolatey (make that choco-latte) goodness, topped with about an inch of foam. Forget Starbucks. Go to Lizzi's. I also had beans and rice. I think you'd call this southern style. Think: baked beans and ham hocks along with rice.
Can't wait to back!

"Normally when one thinks of Oakland one does not think of gourmet dining; San Francisco certainly, Oakland perhaps for ribs, but not fine cuisine. Well Commis was fabulous. Each dish a delicacy, beautifully artistically presented. The interior is is nothing to rave about but THE FOOD IS FABULOUS !"
