A Piece of Italy, Downtown San Mateo

If this is what fresh and authentic Italian fare made from scratch taste like, then we truly have found the place!

When you walk into to Pausa, your stress level completely decreases, and your pleasure spot in your brain completely takes over. The d├ęcor is designed such that the guests can take a break from their daily pace of life, and enjoy a dining experience that transports them to a place of leisure.

Every dish we ordered were scrumptiously delicious. The chef had awaken our dormant taste buds and showed us how wonderfully food can taste. We particularly enjoyed learning from our knowledgeable bartender who made some killer expresso martini.

We learned that each dish from Pausa is handmade, so there are no two identical dishes if you want to be matchy match. Also they put the name of the restaurant in the back of every dish. How cool is that?


Heirloom tomato arancini, house made mozzarella, buffalo ricotta fonduta-the best arancini we’ve ever tasted.

Spinach tagliatelle wiht pancetta, hazelnut & sage pesto, semi-dried cherry tomatoes, pecorino romano-perfectly al dente!

Alaskan halibut, corn mash, naked barley, scallions, pickled cherry tomatoes, basil pesto-this is purely heaven!!
