MICHELIN Guide 2017
617 Laurel St., San Carlos 94070
From $25 to $49


Take a trip to the south of Italy by way of this casual Italian meal along the quaint San Carlos strip. Owned by a native and staffed mostly by Italians, this is a favorite among locals craving seasonal cuisine. The menu draws inspiration from the owner's mother, mamma Carmela, whose recipes have been known to draw a fan following. Start with the San Daniele pizza topped with tomato, mozzarella, arugula and prosciutto. Then, dive into gnocchi Sorrentina, served in a tangy sauce seasoned with garlic and oregano. Desserts don't disappoint either, especially mamma's pastiera Napoletana, a ricotta tart decked with powdered sugar and a single strawberry rose. The sleek room with contemporary furnishings feels grown-up, but is far from low-key.
