Mio Vicino – A Bay area original
The year was 1992 when a talented Italian chef and his business partner opened the first Mio Vicino in it's current location on the corner of Benton and Monroe streets in old town Santa Clara. Their approach was simple: create a place where anyone can stop in, enjoy fresh, bold Italian dishes, a premium wine list, relax amid the buzzing atmosphere, and come away feeling like they've just visited an old friend for dinner.
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.
On your way in for dinner on a busy Friday or Saturday night? Call ahead to be put on our waiting list.
Reservations accepted for parties of 6 or more.
