Small Italian restaurant with limited menu

The food is reasonable, portions small with limited menu. This a small family establishment tucked in a strip mall in La Mesa. The wait staff is one of the owners and lacks customer service skills. Not much to like about this place.

I was also there the night of the blackout. As far as I could tell they were the only restaurant open for miles around. (And grocery stores and 7/11 type stores were also closed.) I was extremely happy to find a place I could get something for dinner that night. And what I got was the usual high quality food... More

My husband, myself & our four year old went here during the long black out all over CA. We just moved here in one of the neighboring apartments along Baltimore Drive a couple of months ago from FL. Our "Little Roma" experience that evening had too much drama & the female owner was rude! I'm not sure if the young... More

This restaurant is a hidden treasure in La Mesa. The owner-Chef, Joe, and his wife, Rosanna, who is often a waitress, offer an extensive menu. The pizza is fantastic! The meatball sandwiches are terrific. But there are a number of other outstanding dishes on the menu as well. The veal and chicken marsala immediately come to mind as does the... More
