Best of Patch: Italian Restaurants

Vote for your favorite Italian restaurant in Redwood City.

Redwood City Patch wants you to vote for your favorite Italian restaurant that captures the essence of an authentic Italian meal, just like Nonna used to make. 

Who cooks the best al dente spaghetti? Who uses the freshest mozzarella on pizza? We want you to tell us.

Our inaugural Best of Patch contest kicks off this week with marinara on our mind and some even on our shirts.

Here are some of our favorite places in Redwood City, but if we have left one off the list, please let us know in the comments and we will add it.

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Ties will be broken by whichever business has the most positive comments in the section below. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey.

Donato's is by far the best restaurant in Redwood City, but no one else is really in their league. Vino Santo Bisto is an excellent, traditional place with a great atmosphere. Old Spaghetti factory is an embarrassment to Italian cusine or cusine in general for that matter.

I like Mistral a lot, but I didn't vote for it because I don't consider it an Italian restaurant. Chantilly is French. Vino Santo Bistro has delicious food and good friendly service. The service we got at Donato's adversely affected our enjoyment of their food and our desire to go back. Old Spaghetti Factory is a good family restaurant--value for the price. It doesn't pretend to cuisine.
