Charming Southern Italian Eatery in San Mateo

My girlfriends took me to lunch for my birthday recently and we had a lovely meal. It was a really warm, sunny day so people were enjoying their lunch on the small patio as well as inside with the windows facing the street completely opened. Everyone who works there is Italian so you get an immediate sense that the place is authentic. They make their own pastas and breads and put a lot of pride and love into their dishes. Service was attentive and very friendly. They even sent out a complimentary house made tiramisu for dessert.

Lentil Soup

I was impressed by the hearty portion and loved how piping hot it was. The soup was filled with lentils, tomatoes, carrots, onions, sausages, and all sorts of light and fresh savory flavors.

Sole picatta at Acqua Pazza

Sole picatta

Delish! My friend and I both ordered the sole with a classic lemon, caper butter sauce. It was the best sole picatta I’ve ever tasted. The fish was moist and the sauce was perfectly seasoned – not too tart and not too buttery – and it was accompanied with veggies like carrots, potatoes and zucchini. Look at how pretty it looks served on this painted dish.

This is a very nice place, clean, and the service is the best you could ask for. It is family run, and makes you feel like you are really in Italy. The pastas are wonderful. I really recommend this place.
