Old favorite is slipping...

Been here 20 times, but it was not so great this time. One entre came out after everyone was done eating. They did make it right by giving it to us free. Actually the mistakes were made by the waitress.

This place was in walking distance of our hotel. We decided to try it out. Pizza and Italian. Hubby love cioppino and they had it on the menu. A bit pricey but what he got was excellent very fresh and worth every penny. We definitely will come here again. Very friendly waiter had an excellent rapport with his customers. Great... More

It was Sunday pm maybe it was the chefs day off, but really thought with previous reviews and line outside, that was a good sign. However, Chewy calamari. ( great flavor on fri Diablo sauce), thin tasting Chianti, over cooked pasta and food that came out way too quick( in middle of eating calamari when entrees arrived) made for an... More

Salad with french dressing ok, but not italien. Pasta was way overcooked and the sause had no taste smells like directly out of can without any flavour. Decoration with orange slice where are the tomatos?

With tables tightly squeezed into this little corner establishment and outdoor seating shoved up against an exterior wall in a parking lot, there is not much ambience to be found here. It is hard to fit your entrees, drinks, and utensils on the small tables and have a private conversation sitting so close to other patrons. That said, what comes... More

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.
