Our evening got off to a rough start. The restaurant was cold when we arrived (64 degrees on the thremostat near our table). Other diners were eating with their with their coats on. We asked the waitress if she would turn up the heat and were told she was not allowed to and would have to call the owner. I... More

This was my first time eating at this restaurant. The service was excellent. They started us out with foccacia bread with fresh pesto. We ordered the butternut squash soup and the crispy eggplant sandwiches. Soup was excellent, served with chopped green apples, which gave an excellent flavor. The eggplant sandwich was crispy with arugula lettuce and a pesto sauce. Very... More

Our first time to eat here. The menu has many interesting items as well as daily specials. We stopped here on our way home from SFO and often stop in Pleasanton. The service was friendly, the atmosphere was very nice and the restaurant was completely full. I ordered a dinner salad and skirt steak with risotto and grilled asparagus. My... More

We've been to this restaurant twice for special dinners involving wine pairing with local wine makers. The food is fabulous. Both times there were 4-5 courses including dessert and my husband and I were impressed with the flavors, presentation of the food and the pairing of the wines. It is a very pretty restaurant in a small strip shopping --... More

Five of us, who get together 4-5 times a year to celebrate each others birthdays, met here for dinner. One of the ladies had been here previously but I had not. Everyone enjoyed their entree ~ I had the Filo Wrapped Salmon and it was delicious. I'm always fearful of ordering salmon when out as I grill salmon a lot... More

Great service and super food. I had the lasagna which was served in a deconstructed way and was delicious. My companion had the daily special which in this case was a paprika crusted halibut over spicy spinach risotto that melted in your mouth. We had a lovely Sangiovese, and ended up happy and full!

This is a very pleasant Italian restaurant with some very nice dishes like the lamb and the fresh fish. The classic pastas are good but not great. The interior is very nice as well as the outside patio (on main street). Wine is very reasonable and good list. Worth a visit on a nice evening. Service is also very good.

We had a family get together in Pleasanton, a midpoint, at Forno Vecchio. 10 of us defended on the restaurant on a Tuesday lunch and had a nice lunch. At peak the place was half full. It is a large room. Service was attentive if a bit stretched, and the food was appreciated by all. The pasta special had tasteful... More
