Dependable Meals at a Conference:
I always have breakfast (and either lunch or drinks) in Il Fornaio whenever I am in San Jose for a conference. Generally, I try the pasta or pizza when I'm there to eat and the wine list/bar is good. It's conveniently located in a hotel adjacent to the Marriott and the San Jose Convention center on Market Street, so you can't miss it. Also, it has a cafe if you just need to grab an espresso and a muffin and dash over to the convention center floor. The food is always good and dependable and I have never had less than excellent service from the staff.

It may be a hotel restaurant and chain, but it has expanded into one of Silicon Valley's premier Italian eateries.:
The Scene
Il Fornaio wisely chose its locations on the Peninsula, its restaurants ensconced in the vintage Sainte Claire Hotel in downtown San Jose and in the tony Garden Court at the...
