This is a fantastic restaurant! If you're in the San Jose area, stop here for lunch or dinner. I was here for lunch and had the insalata di tonno; seared sushi-grade tuna served with arugula. Excellent!

I came here for lunch with a business associate. The service was good, as was the food. I had the tagliatelle with bolognese and my friend had the Caesar salad. The setting could not be better retaining the original art work of this historic hotel.
