West Coast Cafe is a family favorite, providing great service and hearty, Italian cuisine. The location in Down Town San Bruno makes it especially stand-out, since the area is has not been known for the best quality of products or services in the past. Although pricey, the quaint restaurant serves as a romantic spot, worth a little extra for a... More

We ate here with my kids and the food was delicious. My husband ordered calamari - he was expecting the breaded kind but it came in a tomato sauce. It was delicious. It was a bit expensive for the amount you get, and there is no kids menu, but the food was great. For the kids they offer half orders.

What a cute Italian restaurant. It even has a parking lot in the back. It has a 2 hour limit up until 6:00 p.m. We had calamari salads and fetticini with mussels-yummy. Then we had their tiramisu. So good. The service was good.

Excellent lunch ala Italiana at West Coast Cafe. We shared 3 antipasti, 2 primi piatti and 2 secondi piatti among the 5 of us. The staff was kind enough to serve the dishes in the middle of the table and a large plate to each of us. So, in spite of the portions being too large for a 4-course Italian... More

Had a really good dinner the other night at West Coast Café. They had a variety of salads but I wanted soup and the only had one choice that night which was cream of asparagus. I skipped the soup and went right for the main course which was giant shrimp. The shrimp was prepared perfect in a light tomato garlic... More

Excellent dessert choices. Cleanliness and service is impeccable and the atmosphere most pleasant. You will be happily satisfied you gave yourself a treat. Ample free parking behind... More

Our family goes there a few times a year and we love this restaurant. Food is excellent. However, the prices are a little high. Overall we had excellent service and will come back again.
