New to Carlsbad and needed a good, quick meal before a red eye to the east coast. It was a relatively cool, actually very cool for Carlsbad, evening so we opted to sit inside. The restaurant wasn't overly busy but the scene was lively. Our server was excellent, offering great suggestions and seemingly reading our mind as to when to... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the chicken parm sandwich with a local craft beer-Carlsbad Chronic. Wife praised the minestrone soup & bread to-die-for. Inexpensive & rustic inside with a friendly staff. Will return.

but certainly not gourmet...it is hard to review a pizza place because everyone has their own ideas about what is great pizza. Our experience with Jay's was good, not great. We only had the pizza so can not comment on the rest of the menu, but the various Italian dishes that we saw go by our table looked great and... More

On advice of TA we went to Jay's because it was close. We expected more of a fast food experience and were pleasantly surprised with the great service and food! Some of the best Italian my wife & I have ever had! Quick and reasonable. Friendly and accommodating.

They have a nice variety of seafood, chicken, pasta, and pizza. My husband ordered the chicken marsala - delicious - which came with a bowl of spaghetti. Almost too much! My daughter and I each ordered the baked ziti - lots to eat, very delicious!

One night when we walked by we noticed people standing outside, waiting to get in, so the next night we decided to give this place a try. It's rather small and not fancy by any means, but they have great service and food. We had a Caesar salad and Jay's Seafood Combo over linguine. Both were fabulous. The pizza I... More

Great Italian food. The Lasagne, Chicken Parmigiana and Chicken Marco Polo were lovely. The restaurant was quite small so not much room between tables but it was a popular place to eat.

This place is a small corner cafe that kicks out great food. We had a gourmet pizza that was perfect. Saw some dished go by my table that looked like hits. Fresh fish specials daily. This place will be on my return visit list later this week!
