888 Ristorante Italiano
The best Italian restaurant around. Amazing food and wonderful service.
Love this place! The owner is so hospitable, the food is delicious and the restaurant is a little gem. Fresh flowers on the table, snowy white tablecloths and a great menu and wine list. It stands out amongst the many Italian restaurants in San Carlos because of its authenticity and because the owner really cares...
GREAT RESTAURANT, NEIGHBORHOOD GEM. GOOD FOR DATE NIGHT!!
We will absolutely be back again! I love this place.
My friend and I sat outside and had a lovely time. We were celebrating her birthday! The food was amazing and delicious.
As usual, 888 was an excellent place to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. Food, service,
table location were all excellent. Always worth a repeat visit.
It was my second time here and the first time for my friends. Everyone loved it. The service is very good and the food is delicious. A cozy atmosphere with upscale decor, but without astronomical prices. Will definitely return.
Friendly place with wonderful food and unpretentious atmosphere. We will be back!
My wife and I ate there for the first time. The host asked us if we'd like to sit at a table for four, so as to have more room which we then did because we got there early. . We ordered the beet salad to share and the dressing was incredible, as well as the beets and lettuce. I ordered the salmon and with the uniquely delicious sauce it had on it, and it was one of the best piece of salmon I've ever had. It came with a medley of 4 different vegetables, all done right, and some roasted potatoes. The presentation showed extra effort to make it look good. My wife ordered the veal marsala, which was equally good and came with the same side dishes. We even had enough to take home. Then for dessert we shared a Nutella filled cake cake with vanilla gelato. I would have preferred chocolate cake with the gelato but the Nutella was certainly different. We want to come back to try other dishes. Although it was a little on the expensive side, we felt the quality of the food made it worth it.
My friend and I truly enjoyed our entire evening at 888 Ristorante. We had an outside table on a beautiful evening. The service was amazing. The staff was friendly and attentive. Our dinner was delicious, right down to the Bread Pudding! Will definately go again!
The service was excellent; the food was delicious; the owner stopped by to check on things. We had a great dinner.
Delicious, fresh food and very attentive service. The special fried zucchini flowers and grilled bruschetta with summer tomatoes were a surprise.
The food was excellent as was the service. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
This is the best Italian restaurant in San Mateo County. It is in a tasteful quiet setting with superb cuisine. All of the menu items are authentic and beautifully prepared and presented. A true gem .
Consistently one of the best experiences in our area; great staff and excellent food. One of our favorites!
Food and service are always good at this little Italian restaurant.
The staff is always attentive and the food on point. Weather nice so allowed seating outside. located on the "quiet" end of Laurel in San Carlos. Traditional italian - portions nice size not too big but generous enough. Veggies always done beautifully. One of our "go to" restaurants. This is an old school classic good restaurant!
Was a bit disappointed with my Gnocchi as it didn’t have the flavor I have had before. All our other food was outstanding and so was the service.
Very delightful celebration of get together with family and friends. food is excellent and service is excellent
The staff was very accommodating, encouraging us to share three main courses among the four of us dining there. The courses were served family-style, and all were delicious. We enjoyed the outdoor ambiance, the attentiveness of the wait staff and the fact that the bill was reasonable. Highly recommended!
We had such a great experience, and delicious gluten free dinner here! They really have a great thing going. we’ll definitely be going back.
I’ve been three times and every time has been excellent. Staff is attentive and the food is delicious. Pollo Di Parma is my favorite. Finished with the Salted caramel gelato. (Don’t let the olive oil throw you! It somehow pulls it all together.)
I always enjoy dinner at 888: service, food, wine never disappoint.
The host welcomed us warmly. The restaurant is small and we could hear each other speak. The salads were delicious and not overdressed. We all enjoyed out entrees especially the eggplant Parm. We enjoyed a delightful evening there with long time friends.
Love this place! Great small restaurant with excellent food and service! We've been going here for years and have yet to eat something we didn't like.
Great food and service at 888. It became quite loud toward the end so that is our only complaint. Overall, a very good evening!
Great food. Didn’t live our table. I was facing the hall to the kitchen :-(.
Great food but the noise level is so high we could hear what people were saying fromm many tables. Conversation was impossible
They are creative and fresh!! There are so many menu choices and then there are special!!
888 is the best restaurant in San Carlos
Birthday great service
The Gnochi was melt in your mouth delicious!
The service was spot on, right there when you need it and not when you don’t.
888 is a great find, we’ll definitely be back for more!
Friends 70th birthday
The owner and staff made him feel very special by making him a party hat and presenting dessert with a happy birthday candle and song. Love how genuine the owner is!
I live in San Diego, originally from San Carlos. When I go up to visit my mom, I try to make it to 888 because it’s really good, with food reminiscent of my trips to Italy.
We’ve been there several times and the food is always delicious! The service is excellent! All-around wonderful presentation and good experience!
Food very good. Vince and staff provide great service. Several specials each day. Very enjoyable.
The food was wonderful. Burratta starter, osso buco, salmon, sole, pistachio ice cream & bread pudding were all great and inhaled with gusto. Prices are very affordable, considering the value. All staff was engaging, helpful and friendly. This was our first trip but it will not be our last.
The servers and host were very polite and informative. The restaurant is quaint but loud and this night, cold, as my seat was near the door. The entree was not of the highest grade but the side dishes were excellent. Dessert was top notch.
Extremely noisy... not suited for an intimate conversation... but Fun place to visit
