Update: This restaurant is closed Sunday before Valentine’s Day a few girlfriends and I got together at this latest reincarnation of Viva Portofino for a “Galentine’s” day brunch (apparently still owned by Francisco). I had heard from others than Viva Portofino (the name it finally settled on) had improved so I wanted to give it […]

August 2011 update: This restaurant is currently for sale. February 2011 Review La Bella Italia, the restaurant that took over the old Prings’ space, is back under a new name: Tuscany. After years of trying to make a go at it, including multiple renovations and the addition of an Indian food menu, the Indian-American Italian-food […]

March 2012 This restaurant has once again changed names and, perhaps, ownership.  I think it’s still Mexican.  I haven’t tried it but given all the bad experiences we’ve had at that location I won’t go there until someone swears to me on their puppy’s life that it’s the best restaurant in San Leandro. Feburary 2011 […]

July 2011 Update Mike and I had a quick “date night” a couple of weeks ago.  We had an hour sans kids before a meeting, and while we would have usually headed to Boulevard Burger (my favorite cheap place in town), I wanted something nicer – so we headed to The Vine instead, armed with […]

Horatio’s may be the most expensive of these all, but they have discounts from time to time (including a buy 1/get 1 free dinner coupon that they e-mail you for your birthday, if you sign up with their club), […]

October 2013 Update Mike and I have returned to Mai Thai many times.  It continues to offer great food at a reasonable price. It’s really a jewel. July 2011 Update Mike and I went back to Mai Thai for dinner last night with our friends Auguste and Cecily and I had another wonderful meal.  If […]

August 2011 We’ve been to the Englander several times this year (including for the initial Copa America game), and we’ve been overall satisfied with the food and service.  The tall waitress with the long blond hair, in particular, is amazing: super helpful, efficient and quick.  The prices are still high, however. Yesterday we stopped for […]

2012 Update I have recently found out that Ernie’s hasn’t given any of the proceeds from the Eat Our for Education program to the San Leandro Education Foundation as promised.  Therefore I will no longer eat at this restaurant.  You may want to dine at more honorable restaurants as well. January 2010 Review Yesterday was […]

August 2011 Update We’ve gone to Boulevard Burger a few times since my last update and the quality of the burgers seems to have gone downhill.  I always get the MBA burger (with avocado, bacon & mushrooms), medium rare, and the last few times I’ve ordered it it has been very dry.  I don’t know […]
