Hayward >Banchero's Italian Dinners
What are these people used to?. Ok the seating and service are fast. The waitress was helpful. The food.... below average, way below. The soup is NOT good by any standard. the bread is alright, nothing spectacular and the Italian dishes taste watered down and "canned." The spumoni however is quite good and is probably a national brand i.e. perhaps Dreyers. I went once and shall not return or recommend.
You will wait forever in long lines to eat garlic bread made with garlic salt, iceberg lettuce salad served with industrialized salad dressing and pasta that tastes more like Chef Boyardee. There was nothing in the whole meal I liked.
However, if your usual diet consists of McDonald's, Pizza Hut and Hungry Man dinners, I suppose Banchero's will be a notch above.
This place isn't worth it if prices would drop by half.
Not again, ever.
I went there the other night after my sister had read about it on here.
I liked that it was reasonably priced and you get all kinds of things with your meal.
The decor was dated as it is in many restaurants in hayward. The soup was very good and so was everything else.
Not the best italian food but worth it because you get all kinds of things with your meal.
Good garlic bead and good spumoni.
Good old fashioned Italian dinners. Banchero's is this great family-run restaurant that has been in operation for many years. Decor is dated, but this place isn't a "fancy" restaurant. You get soup, salad, french bread, antipasta platter, choice of entree, and dessert (get the spumoni). Also, be sure to add an order of their delicious garlic bread. I'm a fan of the stuffed shrimp. But you can't really go wrong with anything there. Plus, you can take home the leftovers. The staff are mostly Banchero's old timers, and are friendly and knowledgeable. Reservations only for 5+ people. And they do take out.
Family Favorite. My husband and I both have been going to this restaurant since we were 3 years old, (approx. 50 yrs.) it is a family tradition, on both sides of the family! The food is scrumptious, especially the soup! The ravioli is wonderful, the swiss chard served with entrees is mouth watering, salmon or New York Steak are our favorite entrees. Infact, all the food is of high quality and just has that special Bancheros taste that we've come to love. Bancheros has a special place in our hearts. We'vd had engagement celebrations, family get togethers, and it's the first place we take the kids to and now the grandkids to continue the tradition. We've lived in another state for 20 years and miss Bancheros so much that we even get misty-eyed when we talk about it! Needless to say, we visit everytime we go back to the bay area!
wow how much can one person eat. great family restaurant the multi course dinners are wonderful try the chicken
