Dinner

Had dinner on many occasions and have never been disappointed. If a meal is not on the menu they will accommodate any reasonable request.

I had the Panzerotti Camarata, a ravioli dish with shrimp in a brandy cream sauce. Prepared so one can taste each ingredient, and not over-done like so many Italian dishes are often made. The Arugula salad was fresh with lots of flavor. My husband had the Pollo Parmigiano, also excellent and not over breaded and with just the herbs and... More

I had the opportunity to have lunch here on a Monday with three colleagues. The service was excellent and not doting. The tables were set well with an attractive bottle of red on each. I had the bowtie pasta with salmon that was excellent but perhaps a little oversauced. The bread was stale and the olive oil with balsamic was... More

Pleasant atmosphere and excellent service for lunch yesterday. We're new neighbors after being gone for 5 years. Very happy to discover this gem in downtown Chula Vista! Another great rain to love it here! Can't wait to try dinner, too.

Italianissimo Restaurant, Chula Vista, Ca. 7/6/15 While visiting our son in the area we came here for lunch. It is a very nice place, the service is outstanding and the food is good. Just a little pricey. A 12” Pizza (ANNA) is $12.95, Coke $3.00. Cap & Virginia

We had a large group (13) and we wanted to eat before we went to a play. We walked in and the manager opened the patio for us immediately. Service was fast and the food was hot and delicious. I go there often, now!

The food is wonderful here. It is a little gem in Chula Vista! Try the various dishes especially things like osso bucco...the best around!

So I check restaurants near 3rd avenue and read great reviews about it. when we arrived all personnel was real friendly, bread was warmly out of the oven and delicious, calamari was lighly batter and fresh, our waiter suggested the lamb dish...

All the great reviews are exactly right! We wanted a special dinner, but without the annoying, sometimes arrogant trappings. We arrived, were greeted by name, our table was marked 'reserved', (we had made reservation, but only a couple of hours before), and the owner treated us as special, even though we had never been there before! Had a hard time... More

Well, we saw the reviews of this place and got in at 8:45 PM (15 mins prior to the closing) - 2 adults and 2 children. No pre-booked tables, just walked in. We were welcomed with a huge smile and were wished a Bonn Appetite. Our server was an elderly matron who has been around the world, she knew cultures... More
