If you are on your way to the San Francisco airport and need a meal, stop by Burlingame and take a walk in the quaint town centre and have a meal at Stella Alpina Osteria. It is a cosy, family run restaurant.
We were seated at 5pm as our friends had young kids - bread and butter for them and they were pretty satisfied. The place filled up very quickly and it was lucky that we had reservations.
I forgot my camera but the truffle gnocchi which was the special that night, still lingers in my mind. I was left wanting more. We shared a portion as they said it was enough for 2 but if you like truffle and gnocchi - I really suggest you get your own!
For my main, I had the Fish of the Day - the halibut which was fresh and flavourful. The lamb chops were good too. All in all, it was an enjoyable meal.
