  • The calamari salad is amazing!
  • Polipetti salad-crispy octopus, tomatoes and arugula
  • Happy hour 3-6; best deals are 1/2 off the $18 regularly priced glasses of wine ;)
  • Try calamari pizza!
  • My dinner was good from start to finish (polipetti salad, mushroom pizza, chocolate cake). The waitstaff were helpful and service-oriented.
  • Gorgonzola was strong on the speck pizza. Olive tapenade with the bread was amazing. All of the servers seemed so lost and confused. Except Niquo. She was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Close with a flourish this spring break and enjoy a refreshing Pueblo Viejo Cocktail here at Desco.
  • Tiramisu is the best I've ever had.
  • If you are in Desco, try a Margarita with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.
  • Tagliatelle was great.
  • The margherita pizza, the crust was terribly disappointing, not crispy or tasty at all, the sauce pretty bland, my girl liked their steak dish that night.
  • Great happy hour. Love the negronis. Love the cheese plate.
  • Everything I have tried is authentic and delicious.
  • The pizza is some of the best in the Bay Area.
  • Good pizza (though double check that yours come with tomato sauce).
  • Try the Moscow Mule.
  • Authentic Italian without being pretentious or over the top expensive.
  • One of the better Italian restaurants you can just walk into and sit down without a reservation.
  • Everything
  • Spek pizza if you like string cheese. It's delicious!!
