Restaurant is conviniently located close to Nodrstrom, H&M. Parking in the adjacent garage is most convenient. Also you can park at Safeway.

It's a huge place with indoor, outdoor and patio seating. The restaurant is spacious and the lighting is soft. If to sit outside when the weather is good - its fantastic. We had Sunday brunch. Restaurant was crowed, so service was slow. But right place outside didn't allow us to notice slow service. Firtsly they bring a basket full of warm bread, olive oil and vinegar.

Our waiter was very attentive, took our orders quickly without rushing us and delivered our food nice and piping hot.

Rustichella was so great! Capellini al Pomodoro was delicious too.

Good wine list.

Good choice if you visit Walnut Creek but not the best.

My next visit was in January. We came for lunch in the middle of the week. Restaurant was empty, just 3-4 tables were occupied. But service was unbelievable slow. When we told to our waitress we are hurry it didn't work too. In my first visit I expained slow service by crowded Sunday brunch but in the second visit service was even slower. Our waitress was Scott D. He moves slower than a turtle. If you don't hurry, with a company of friends it is OK. Food was very good. Also they have very good working WiFi. Glass of Zinfandel - 8$.
