Good, real italian food, all of the time. Service is meh, but what that lacks is made up in thier amazing dishes. The italain place next door is pretty, but food is terrible. Jays is the original and the best italian in the area. Try to hit it about twice each week we visit Carlsbad.

.... so when I get a chance to eat some good seafood I go for it. Jay's proved to be a pleasant surprise. When I walked in the place I was afraid I had entered a pizza joint that also had some seafood. After eating there, I think it's a seafood place that also has pizza. (Pizza you can get... More

Second visit in a year. Decided to sit outside, after waiting for a waiter we noticed the previously empty table on the inside not only had water and bread, the waitress was already taking their food order. I had to address the issue with the hostess who promptly advised me our waiter was handling "take out orders". We eventually saw... More

Pizza, pasta, take your pick - it's all good! So delicious, so much flavor, plenty to eat. Wish the place was bigger - can be a challenge to get a seat.

My husband and I like to spend quality time together on Sundays. After a day of exploring in the North County San Diego area we wanted to find some good Italian food. After several stops to look at a few places we found on my phone, we found Jays and have been going back for the delicious food, friendly service... More

In Carlsbad for a mini-vacation with family, had heard Jay's was a good place. Got one of the four or so tables out on the parking lot which was fine. I actually think it was cooler and quieter out there than inside and the parked cars blocked the view and noise of the street a bit. Brandon was our server,... More

The Pizza is some of the best ive had on the west coast that is similar to east cost style. Amazing! Also have had some of their pasta and sea food just as great. Servers are great and the free bread sticks are even better then they smell. The wine list is quite good. Always bring people here when they... More

The food was good; lots of fresh seafood, and solid traditional Italian food. The service had good and bad moments; we were travelling with our pet, and they allow pets in their - well, I was going to say out door seating, but in reality it is four tables in the parking lot they share with the surf shop next...

Service was overwhelmingly friendly and professional at the same time. Not to mention the best seafood dishes, fresh and abundant. If you really want a seafood feast then order Jays Combo, it just the best you'll experience. And the Pizza is just mag, I have to say. Delta Papa Zulu
