First off, I've been in San Jose since 1963 and I'd never heard of Antipasto's. My hubby heard about this place from a co-worker who ate there for the very first time too and she raved about the Rib-eye steak she had.We made an "attempt" to have lunch here Friday at 12:00...yeah I know, ridiculous mistake, too say that they were busy was a HUGE understatement. no parking, no sitting and a long azz line to boot. We decided to try again around 2:00pm Tues. The parking lot is small BUT one spot was open when we arrived, happy campers we were.Let me say that I really had no idea what I was going to order, however when we walked in, the intoxicating smell of "ITALIAN GRAVY" hit me like a ton of bricks and all I knew was I wanted a loaf of bread and that gravy and I would be set, I ended up with a bowl of penne with meat sauce(the gravy), a salad and say yes to the question, "would you like tomatoes and bacon on our salad?" My husband of course wanted the rib-eye and for the first timers that read this, order your steak FIRST at the deli side to pick out your steak, they charge you the per pound price and $5.00 to cook it. Then you move to the big ORDER HERE sign to add to your lunch or dinner and you pay there. It is time consuming so if you only have 30min for lunch you may be late getting back BUT....our lunch was FANTASTIC, I want that gravy and the recipe...yeah good luck with that...lolThe staff are friendly, helpful and down to earth people, I even got a tad more gravy after using the bread to sop up most of it. The steak was perfect, charred well in the outside and med. rare throughout, and it had a buttery smell, OMG it was delicious. Even the customers are friendly and made conversation with us as we all ate.Will we be back, oh hell yeah. We even bought some frozen raviolis and gravy to take home, 96 raviolis for $19.99...we got a double gravy so I'm not sure what the price was.Try Antipasto's.....you won't regret it.
