San Jose Restaurants to Try This Weekend

Downtown San Jose has a lot going on. When trying to decide on a restaurant, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle of Yelp reviews. Besides, reviews can be faked, and you never know when one bad customer service experience may have colored a particularly upset reviewer. Rather than turning to anonymous strangers for guidance, look no further than our local's guide to downtown San Jose dining. Scott Safadi and his team at Cal Bay Property Management can vouch for these delicious spots!

Zona Rosa, 1411 The Alameda

Hand-made tortillas, grass-fed meatballs, and ahi tuna tostadas are all on tap at Zona Rosa, San Jose's best Mexican restaurant. While you might not typically associate carrot chile soup with modern Mexican cuisine, Zona Rosa's will have you rethinking everything you know! Wash it all down with a margarita or three -- they're housemade and deliciously fresh.

Paesano Italiano Ristorante, 305 W. Julian St.

For a traditional date night on the town, head to Paesano. Cheerful decor gives the place a contemporary vibe, but the menu is filled with classics like gnocchi, ravioli, and carpaccio. The chef's commitment to tradition is palpable, but you'd be foolish to dismiss this spot as just another place to grab a slice. Valentine's Day is coming up - make your reservations at Paesano sooner rather than later!

The Grill on the Alley, 172 Market St.

If Italian doesn't tickle your fancy, consider The Grill on the Alley instead. This trendy, high-end restaurant and bar offers an exciting menu comprised of unique flavor combinations. Try the lobster salad -- it's topped with pine nut brittle and a Tahitian vanilla vinaigrette!
