Piacere Restaurant


The Calabro fresh mozarella with sun dried tomato tapenade sprinkled with extra virgin olive oil is every bite as tasty as it looks. I ate the cheese by itself and then paired with the Roma tomato. I like how I can roll the cheese in my palate and slowly taste its soft creamy consistency. I'm glad I chose this over a leafy salad.

I wanted to try the Gnocchi but the choice of salmon with horseradish crust with herbed crème fraiche was a good one. The salmon was thick and juicy. For dessert, I opted for the strawberry shortcake with whipped crème fraiche and balsamic reduction. Too rich but it's okay to indulge once in a while. We were celebrating the arrival of my officemate's wife after a year and a half long wait for the approval of her visa.


Piacere is located at 727 Laurel Street in San Carlos, California.

Bon Appetito!
