The food is excellent. I had the pasta carbonara and it was the best I have ever had. If you are looking for authentic Northern Italian food, this place is tough to beat. They are open for lunch which offers a mess less crowded environment.
Evvia offers a cozy atmosphere and a friendly staff. The restaurant is not very large, so you get excellent service. The only criticism I have is that I wish the bar were a little bigger. It is a great restaurant to go when you want to celebrate a special occasion.
I love shopping at Wooden Horse. They have a great selection of quality toys. Last Christmas I bought a rock tumbler for my 6 year old and it was the best gift. The Wooden Horse will gift wrap for free which is the best perk of all!
Graystone is not only a school, but a community. I have one going into 5th and 1 going into 1st. They have both had excellent teachers. Mr. Beymer is a very approachable principal and his door is always open. There are many ways for students to get involved. Last year, my 4th grader was on Safety Patrol, Reading Team and Peace Patrol.
I had heard so much about La Playita and we finally ate there a few months ago. I was not impressed. I thought the food was very average. It wasn't memorable at all. I don't even remember what I ordered. I only remember making a mental note that we wouldn't go back.
I really like Los Gatos Brewing Company. The food is excellent (a little pricey) and the atmosphere is fun. They have a great bar. It is a fun place to meet up with friends or go out to dinner with your spouse.
La Villa has been a Willow Glen landmark for many years. If you are looking for melt in your mouth raviolis, this is the place to go. A lot of their business is take out. It isn't a place you want to go to in the evening with your family, but it is a great place to pick up dinner and bring it home.
If you are searching for cinnamon bread, look no further. Greenlees is a family owned bakery and it has the best cinnamon bread in town. It is always fresh and full of sweetness. They have many more choices which I haven't tried yet, but I am sure they are good.
Maggianos has a lot of variety to offer to their customers. I have been their twice and I was much more impressed with the food the second time. I would suggest going with at least a party of six people. The only drawback is that it is a loud restaurant.
The children's choices are healthy and delicious according to my 10 year old daughter. Her favorite is ham and cheese on white bread with a little bit of mayonnaise. She likes that the special of the day has an example of what the meal looks like.
