This is a small Italian restaurant that has been at this location for around 20 years. It has a very relax atmosphere, if you like being treated like they've know you for years this is the place to go. If you like more formal relations with the staff, try another place. I like it relaxed, so... read more

The worst fast food would be better than this place. Very unorganized place and terrible service. So many other options in the area. Very slow service. Didn't even bother to bring one of our group's meal. Once we finally got someone's attention they somehow made in 5 minutes and said take it to go.....seriously.... Take it where? Back to my...

Wonderful eat in or take out food. I have not had anything that was not excellent. Great service and food in a funky location, if you try it you will be hooked. Sea food pizza is superb.

We live in Las Vegas (with lots of Italian restaurants, and we can't think of one that matches Jay's on the Delicious scale! We've eaten there on at least four separate vacations. The last time, we were actually staying in San Diego, and we took the train up just to eat at Jay's --- it's that good! We always have... More

It is a small restaurant, and they serve a packed house. There are waitstaff moving frenetically throughout the place, serving, clearing, re-filling, seating. I was impressed that everyone seemed willing to do any work needed. It was definitely a group effort. The cook wasn't keeping up with the good service. Our toasted bread with cheese topping came out slightly burnt... More

We ate at this place with 2 adults and 2 kids. Quick and attentive service. Food was great: we had scallops and shrimps. The kids had the pasta with red sauce. A huge tiramisu was served for desert (1 portion was enough for the four of us). Good wine list of which we had a bottle of white for a... More

Place is small and in season you wait for a table. As my wife and I travel as a couple we sit at the bar. The food is incredible, the Cippino some of the best seafood I've eaten including the east coast. The staff are incredible, attentive and if you sit at the bar you will witness in a small... More

Met group of friends for dinner, 11 of us in total. We had to ask multiple times for our drinks (alcohol, so it was worth their while) and were promised the seafood pizza would change our lives. Drinks never arrived, pizza was good, not life changing. The restaurant wasn't so busy to have been ignored like we were. Too bad.
