No sugar added...

I usually do not order pasta dishes at pizza joints or any other non Italian restaurant due to the fact that the noodles are usually chewy and the sauce is slapped on thick and contains sugar. However, I decided to be brave one more time and was pleasantly surprised to find the Manicotti here... read more

This restaurant was recommended to us and with good reason. It's a small place and you can see into the kitchen which made it interesting. Mainly, the food was outstanding. I ordered the special of the mahi mahi and it was excellent served with calamari and asparagus over a bed of angel hair pasta. (See picture.) My husband ordered the... More

We take out of state visitors to Jay's Gourmet on a regular basis. There is a nice choice of entrees and pizzas. All has been very good. It is a small restaurant, a bit crowded, but it is all worth it.

Delicious food! We were steated right away, bread brought out to us within the minute & drink order taken! The restaurant started to get busy as we were eating & the service was still great. Loved it!

Good choices but the pizza selection goes beyond the typical. Prices are not cheap but worth it. Excellent crust and options. So many exquisite combos to try!

There were four of us for dinner and the meals were great. What I especially enjoyed was the bread before the meal. YUM! Pastas were great and the service was most attentive.

Four of us ate here twice during a week trip to Southern CA. The first time we all rated it a 5. The sausage rolls, pepperoni bread, antipasto and rolls were exceptional. The Chakalaka wine is excellent. A few days later we returned and all of us rated it a 3. The rolls mysteriously were made differently and over cooked.... More

We had forgotten about how good Jay's was, but decided to stop in when we were in Carlsbad. We had a wonderful dinner and will definitely be back. The Veal Marsala was wonderful.

There are many Italian places in Carlsbad to dine. Jay's is a little "beachy" but the food is terrific from the soup to the entrees and the service is terrific.
