Town San Carlos Exterior Decor

Town Restaurant is a steakhouse serving American comfort food in downtown San Carlos. It opened in 2006 and has gotten positive press, so we figured we would see how it stacks up. Over the years, this restaurant has been consistently busy. Town is definitely a hit with the locals, many of which can just walk over for a meal. Our last visit was in March 2014. It is so busy, we had to make a reservation a week in advance.

Locanda Positano Restaurant Review, San Carlos

Posted by Foodnut.com, January 1st, 2013

Why did we dine here? – Locanda Positano is the sister restaurant to Acqua Pazza in San Mateo and has received some high accolades on Yelp. We were in the area, love Italian food, and decided to give them a try. Locanda means inn, in Italian. Positano is a scenic town hugging the Amalfi coast of Southern Italy. We’ve visited there but did not have a meal. Our last visit was in November 2013, where we found this place extremely loud. Their sister restaurant in San Mateo, Acqua Pazza closed down.

The restaurant was packed at dinner time, so make reservations ahead of time. It has gotten louder over the years too.
