Diablo Review

Uncle Yu's has brought Chinese food to Livermore wine country with the opening of Uncle Yu's at the Vineyard. It's a surprising concept, especially for us Chinese food­lovers who have one hand wrapped firmly around a Tsingtao. But not for Uncle Yu's, where sommelier Nicholas Liang has been advocating Sino-vino pairings at the Lafayette and San Ramon restaurants since the start. So enjoy a lovely Alsatian white while you check out the spinach dumplings-soft noodlelike wrappers exploding with screamingly fresh spinach, shrimp, and chicken. Or, try the crisp-roasted free-range chicken, with its intriguing ginger, five-spice, and red chili­flecked sweet sauce. Desserts are imported from France and Italy, and will have you asking why sorbets and chocolate made here often aren't as good. The friendly, efficient servers had better study that wine list. Lunch and dinner daily.
