Dinner

My husband loved the linguine with clams and found the pasta cooked to perfection. The lobster and scallops were in a sauce that was delicious and the pasta was home made. Wonderful.

This used to be one of my favorite dining experiences. I always enjoyed the movies in the patio. I called this morning to confirm there would be a movie tonight and the owner told me yes. When I got to the restaurant he told me there would not be. I asked him if it was half price wine night and... More

The eatery is near my house, so we go now and then. I like the food, though the setting is average. The prices are OK.

The staff at the next door Courtyard by Marriott recommended Parioli's and we are glad they did. Great Italian food with excellent service with a very Old World ambiance made for a wonderful dining experience. We shared the goat cheese and spinach stuffed portabello mushroom appetizer, and found it very tasty. For my main course, I thoroughly enjoyed my chicken... More

Sat out on the patio during perfect weather. We like to visit Parioli's whenever we come to SD. Had the Papardelle with grilled chicken and goat cheese + tagliatelle bolognese and both were delicious! The oil & vinegar that they serve with the bread is VERY UNIQUE with onions and peppers mixed in. It is over-the-top DELICIOUS and a great... More

We had just arrived in Solana Beach and we wanted a restaurant close to the hotel. This place was absolutely wonderful. Really great food, excellent service, friendly staff, just a nice evening.

It was quiet and felt like being at someone's home. I was surprised it was so empty but I was happy because after a long day, this was just the experience my wife and I were seeking. The food was absolutely wonderful, and I would actively return to this area for that reason alone. We tried the gnocchi, lasagne, pizza,... More

We have been going there for 7 years now, and normally don't review local restaurants. But this place is unique. Legit Italian, fresh cooked and reasonably priced. Don't expect a trendy, noisy atmosphere. Nicely decorated though. Alll dishes are good, but the Lasagna is our favorite pasta dish. Good for families but also for a quite dinner for two.
