A local staple since 1992, Mio Vicino serves premium Italian dishes in the midst of Santa Clara’s old town. Traditional Italian recipes are spiced up with inspiration from the California food scene. The trained Italian chefs use high-quality ingredients to create unforgettable meals, and the friendly service is a testament to Mio Vicino’s local ownership. Try one of the specialty pastas like the linguine and clams tossed with garlic, tomatoes, and leeks in a white wine sauce, or the portabella fusilli, which brings together portabella and crimini mushrooms, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and sweet corn all tossed in a roasted garlic-marsala sauce.
Today Mio Vicino still carries on the neighborhood tradition in Santa Clara. In fact, you’ll still see many familiar faces in the kitchen and serving the food. The restaurant even remains privately owned and operated by one of the store’s original employees! For that reason, you can count on only the highest quality ingredients in our original traditional and California-inspired Italian recipes and of course our quick, friendly service.
In addition to the main restaurant seating, guests have the opportunity to reserve Mio Vicino’s private dining room, which seats up to 35, for any event from birthday parties to corporate lunches. For more information on booking availability and catering options, contact us.
