There were six in our group, we were seated on the patio, with a view of the ocean. There is some road/street noise, but the atmosphere was upbeat and the service and food, top rate. I had the shrimp and grits with pancetta. It was very good; something I would definitely have again. For dessert, the chocolate chip bread pudding.... More

We took our dog here for dinner. The food was good as always. My husband had the halibut, which he enjoyed. We split a very good salad and I had a decent crab cake for my main. The wine list is pretty decent but pricey, however two days a week they have half price on whole bottle which would make... More

On a recommendation, we visited Sbicca for lunch and were glad we did. We had a very friendly and attentive waiter and the service, including the person clearing dishes and filling drinks, was spot on. When one of our orders was delivered with the wrong toppings, they were so apologetic that we almost felt bad. They cooked that one whole... More

My favorite place for happy hour in Del Mar, service is always good, food selections are awesome, good selection of drink, the only issue I have is the sun in the afternoon it is intense on the patio, not enough umbrellas to keep you out of the damaging suns rays. Hopefully next time I am in Del Mar they correct... More

Had 12 to celebrate a birthday and was able to make a reservation. Food and service were both great. Only two things were not perfect. They could not separate the checks and they had nothing to offer the person for a birthday desert. Otherwise it was all good.

My wife and I split a burger with sweet potato fries. We also had a spring roll and a crab cake. My Stella was three dollars.we sat on an outdoor deck... More

SBicca is located on trendy 15th St. in Delmar, CA. The restaurant is in an older, sea town building with a patio, bar, alleyway with small tables, a couple of dining rooms and a rooftop, tent-covered dining area. Every place is a nice place to eat but the rooftop allows you to watch the sunset over the ocean. Food was... More
