Went for our last night out with business friends. It was a Saturday night and they were able to get us in on a last minute reservation. They had a little old man playing keyboard and the place was jumping. ;-) the was was great and the service was good. It was a great evening with friends.

During our recent visit to San Antonio we were looking for a nice place for dinner on a Sunday evening. La Focaccia Italian Grill was the perfect spot for a delicious meal and memorable evening.

We tried this place on the advice of our hotel front desk person. We ended up really enjoying our meal. The service was great and the food even better. I had the Chicken Parmesan and my daughter had Fetticine Alfredo. Both were very good. Overall, a pleasant surprise! Definitely recommend!

We had this place recommended to us but it was a bit of a disappointment. The service was OK but the food was pretty lacklustre. Very basic, over-reduced tomato sauce Italian food. And it wasn't cheap.

La Focaccia is a fabulous Italian restaurant. The service and food were excellent! Starting with warm bread and great wine in a friendly atmosphere then appetizers, and main courses of northern Italian food. The sauces were some of the best I have had. Save room for the homemade desserts too. Everything was perfect!

The hostess, service (Bernard) and the pianist (Francois) were SO friendly! They made our visit most enjoyable. The atmosphere was very family-like. The food was good. The bread was very nice. Calamari appetizer was nice and light. Salad was a LITTLE heavy on the dressing. The steak and shrimp kabob was very good. I would definitely recommend this local eatery!

It has been a long time since I ate here, but the quality is still stellar. I had the chicken marsala and it was fresh and tasty. Love the focaccia bread they serve, too!
