Over the past 30 years, we have dined here and I've touted it to the be the best Italian in San Diego, perhaps even So Cal. This visit, I left a bit disappointed.

Great service, interesting menu and wine list. I had one of the best veal piccata dishes since my favorite San Francisco restaurant closed. Highly recommend and surely will go back.
