Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Pizza Place
$$
““Exceptional” “designer pizzas” with “unique” topping combos are the signature of this “casual” Los Gatos parlor, where “attentive” servers also supply “excellent” New American small plates and “strong cocktails”; a front patio and “quirky” touches like a “penny-covered” wood oven help set the scene for “a good time.” The owner Ross is a bad -a$$!!”

“Chef David Kinch deserves his 3 Michelin Stars. This is my favorite restaurant in the whole wide world. I have eaten at many fancy places and this place is still the top of my list. They lost a lot of Japanese dishes that were collected in 15 years in their second fire due to arson. Yet, after their millionaire dollar renovation, they finally earned their third star for their innovative (expensive) tasting menu and world class wine pairing. If you are planning to make reservations, please take me. I will drop everything to go with you. ”
