After an 18-month seismic retrofitting and renovation of his Italian restaurant, Pino Spanu is back in business in downtown Campbell.
Now the restaurant, formerly Pino’s, has not only a new look but a new name — Trattoria 360 — and a new menu.
“We went more upscale,” Spanu says.
Mussels, octopus, sea bass and lobster star on the seafood side of the menu. Meat lovers will find a Wagyu steak, veal chop and lamb chops — plus a full lineup of pasta dishes and appetizers.
The larger footprint for the 49-seat restaurant also allows for more spacing between tables than before, he says.
According to Mercury News archives, the circa 1911 building was originally the second Bank of Campbell. Over the years it housed a showroom for the Ford Motor Co., offices for the Campbell Water Co., Jeffer’s Clothing Store, an acrobatic shop and Western Lifetime Cookware. For the past 20 years, a series of restaurants called this home, including Alley’s Café, Rico’s Mexican Café and Café Campbell.
Besides this restaurant, Spanu previously owned downtown Campbell’s A Bellagio and La Pizzeria.
Details: Trattoria 360 serves dinner Tuesday-Sunday, starting at 5 p.m., at 360 E. Campbell Ave. 408-429-8671; www.trattoria360campbell.com.
