San Mateo Patch wants you to vote for your favorite Italian restaurant that captures the essence of an authentic Italian meal, just like Nonna used to make.
Who cooks the best al dente spaghetti? Who uses the freshest mozzarella on pizza? We want you to tell us.
Our inaugural Best of Patch contest kicks off this week with marinara on our mind and our aprons.
Here are some of our favorite places in San Mateo, but if we have left one off the list, please let us know in the comments and we will add it.
Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Ties will be broken by whichever business has the most positive comments in the section below. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.
