Craving for Authentic Italian Food


We stumbled across this adorable Italian restaurant in San Mateo and decided to give it a try. Boy, we were so glad we did! Sole is a very cozy Italian restaurant that probably seat about 35 people or so. They also have an outdoor patio with blasting heat lamps which are perfect for a cool wintery day.

For appetizer, we ordered Burrata e Prosciutto di Parma. This is one of the best tasting burrata we ever had! The combination of creamy mozzarella, mouthwatering prosciutto with freshness of greens were exceptionally memorable!


For entrée, we had homemade Pappardelle alla Bolognese which the paste was cooked perfectly al Dante with satisfying meat sauce.

We also had Cacciucco Di Pesce which was a variety of seafood such as black muscles, salmon, prawns  with pasta in a spicy tomato broth. The portions were exceptional generous.

We were so satiated and did not have room for dessert. We will be back for sure to try different dishes!!

Splurging on a Sunday Late Morning



If you are in the mood to splurge on a sunny Sunday late morning, The Village Pub is it!!

It’s located in an in an  unassuming area of Woodside. It’s not noticeable as the main entrance is facing the parking lot that’s filled with Teslas, BMWs and Mercedes.

We were greeted by friendly host and staff and right away, the server pulled up a cart that’s filled with champagnes bottles. Hmmmm, what champagne will go well with caviar and black truffle? Tough decision to make. How about one of each?



We really enjoyed the unique lobster Benedict as everything tasted so fresh. The modern simplicity presentation truly balance out the complex flavor of the dishes.


In addition, The Village Pub also has one Michelin Star which explains the consistency of the food and wonderful service.

We look forward to return to their dinner service very soon!!

Mid-Week Splurge





When weekend is not here fast enough, we like to indulge ourselves with great food and wine to make the rest of the week days more enjoyable. Of course we picked Viognier Restaurant in Downtown San Mateo!


It’s relaxing dining room features plush booths, a cozy fireplace, and a blazing wood-fired brick oven.

It’s always nice and quiet here and we can truly enjoy each other’s company in the presence of great food and wine.

When you dine at their dining room, you will need to select their prefix menu and that’s what we opted for. We also decided to do wine pairing with our food which truly brought out the essence of each dish.

Everyone should give a mid-week splurge a try!

Welcome to Viognier Restaurant
