Italian or French or ? near Hayward

I am taking a friend out to dinner next week after spending a day decorating her place. She lives in Hayward but after dinner I am driving to a hotel near SJC airport.

So I a) don't really feel like heading up to Berkeley/Central Oakland since I have to steer south apres dinner and b) I would like something special but not too pricey. We won't want to get too dressy, IMO.

Am thinking Bellanico (Glenview) or Trabocco (Alameda).

    For French, Papillon in Fremont?
    For Italian, Buon Appetito or Acqua E Farina in Hayward?

      Thank you. We've been to Buon Appetito but I will check out the others. Alternatively, it may be worth it to go north.

        Acqua E Farina looks great - thank you so much, hbsboak.

          No prob. There's also Paradiso in San Leandro. It might be worth a sniff.
