Best Anniversary Gift

My husband and I went to this charming trattoria for our anniversary. We particularly wanted pizza because we hadn't had a really good one in a long time. When we asked for a pizza to be custom made for us there was no hesitation. What came out of the kitchen was far better than the one we... read more

Came here with a Groupon..ambiance could be better but the service was excellent! The food was delish. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the calamari. Typically I don't order it but I thought I'd give it a try. So glad I did. This will be my go to place for it. Light, not oily, not rubbery..perfect. We had two other apps as... More

This little Italian restaurant was a delight to find. The staff was friendly and the food delicious. If you are ever in the mood for good Italian food and great atmosphere, this is the place to go. A must try is the Tiramisu. It is some of the best I have ever tasted. We will return in the future. The... More

This is by far our favorite place to eat in La Mesa. Everything we've had here is excellent, but their Minestrone soup is definitely our favorite. The staff is always very friendly and very welcoming. We always feel well taken care of.

You can eat at a lot of pretty good Italian restaurants in the San Diego area, especially as Little Italy is aptly named. But you can also get away from the hustle of the city and enjoy very good Italian cooking in the charming walkable area of La Mesa to the east. At our last visit, one of our party... More

I was amazed with the quality and authenticity of this restaurant. The food was incredibly delicious! Everything was way and beyond what I expected, It is rare to find a restaurant that makes caesar salad from scratch. You can really taste the difference. The portions are huge, to the point of having to take half of them home. The Tiramisu... More

Last Friday night myself and 3 friends had dinner at Trattoria Tiramisu in La Mesa on La Mesa Blvd. The food and service is always good. We were 2 couples and we both had groupons. It clearly says on the groupon "only one groupon per table" and I was fully aware of this. Since they were about to expire we... More

Awesome food, good service, filthy restrooms. Great location. I love all of the food. Only question? Where does the staff wash up?

This is a small Italian style Bistro and is a bit low on ambience and only has very basic decor but does OK on the food. It wouldn't win Master Chef but what we had was what I would call honest and straight cooking, like mamma would probably cook up each night. So, the plating up and presentation is simple.... More

My husband and I have been enjoying this restaurant for several years now and have never had a meal that was less than exceptional! The atmosphere is a bit bistro, but still very intimate, in fact we chose it to celebrate our 10th anniversary prior to taking off on a 2nd honeymoon. One thing I appreciate, not being a meat...
