PYLOS is a consistently superior experience in terms of food quality, professional service and comfortable ambiance. Their dips are amazing. Their specials are amazing. Their Greek standards are amazing. Having eaten there many times it is always a pleasure to return. Highly recommended.

Fun time with great service. Had a guitar player on Friday night. Limited food menu choices and drinks - keep in mind it's a champagne and caviar place. looking forward to coming back!

we used this fine restaurant for our wedding in 2013 and continue to visit. Food is real Italian not an Americanized version. If you have enjoyed an outdoor meal in Italy, this is a good place to go. they also have indoor space should the weather not corporate. The restaurant is family friendly, but tables are spread out enough to ensure that a child shouldn't be a problem. Great for date, romantic meal, but even works for business meetings. Servers are fun and add to the overall enjoyment. Over all a true gem and worth visiting

THE BEST FOOD! THE BEST SERVICE! THE BEST ATMOSPHERE! BEST VIBES! You cannot go wrong dining at Willow Street Los Gatos. Their food is simply scrumptious! The chopped Italian pizza salad is to die for and every pizza I've tried is so delicious. Only the highest quality ingredients here. Want the most mouth-watering, tasty sandwich?...then try their Chicken Pesto Sando! If you're lucky, you'll be there on the days they have Chicken Tortilla Soup. I could go on and on about the deliciousness of their food, but I think you get the point by now. Oh...almost forgot to mention their killer Marianne's Mud Pie and extensive and creative selection of beer, wine and cocktails.

About the restaurant
In 1959, Frank and Tina D'Ambrosio decided to start a new restaurant venture along with their "Paisans" Mario and Enza Volpe, after Frank had much success with his first restaurant, the original "Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi Too! In Mountain View, CA. Named after a good friend of theirs, they opened the original "Giorgio's" in the Foxworthy Shopping Center in San Jose, CA. One year later, cousins Anthony and Louise Dambruoso, affectionately known to the family as "Sash and Lou", took control of the restaurant and ran it for the next eight years. Pictures and paintings of these folks still grace the walls of the establishment today. In 1968, Frank's four sons assumed control of the restaurant and still own and operate it to this day. In 1997 they opened a second location in Milpitas, CA, where they still offer the highest standard of quality food, service, and value to their customers. Bon Appetit!!
