Very nice Italian Restaurant.

We enjoyed a relaxing dinner of Lasagna, with bread, salad and a glass of wine. A very peaceful, rainy afternoon. This was another excellent recommendation from our hosts at El Primero Boutique Hotel, a block away.

Located in downtown Chula Vista, Parking was difficult to locate and I ended up parking in the apartment parking lot behind the restaurant. I got lucky and didn't get my vehicle towed away! The interior of the restaurant is beautiful and my waiter greeted me immediately. I ordered a glass of red house wine that paired well with the complimentary... More

Dined here with my husband and another couple. The restaurant itself is extremely comfortable and the environment is friendly. Service was great and Saturday evening there was plenty of metered parking out front. Salads and pasta along with seafood were all made perfectly. My glass of wine tasted as though the bottle had been opened for too long and requested... More

We took the middle of the week to avoid crowds and reduce the noise factor. Service was prompt and quality of food was good. Getting there early helped because LOTS of people came in shortly after 6:00 We live in this community and it was good that we now have a decent Mediterranean restaurant nearby.

A great find in downtown Chula Vista. Great atmosphere for a Christmas Eve dinner with family. Delightful warm bread. Good products and pricing. Service was outstanding and much of the staff was Italian. Food was excellent. Not on the menu, I ordered veal parmigiana and it was very well executed and presented. Arrabiata sauce was very spicy but so very... More

Loved everything about this place. Some restaurants are too large and others too small. This one is absolutely perfect! From the appetizers to dessert, top marks! Service and value also top shelf.
