Cozy, delicious, and off the well-beaten PB path!

Our last night in the Pacific Beach area and we were looking for something delicious, and possibly away from the noise and slightly loud groups in establishments close to the beach (we had enjoyed them other nights, just wanted something different this night!). We found ourselves here. It appears... read more

They have very friendly service! Our waiter was Drake and he was super awesome and attentive! They use very fresh and good quality ingredients. The popes pillow for dessert is a must!

We are foodies and have been to Italy often. That said, we are delighted to have found this gem in San Diego. I won't go on endlessly, but will just say Enoteca Adriano is authentic and exceptional in all respects. My only "complaint" is that the noise level is a little high. But hey, that's the sound of people enjoying... More

Excellent local restaurant with very reasonable prices, excellent service and consistent Italian food. Reservations are a must. Can be very loud when crowded so sitting outside is a nice option when the weather permits.

Jay and I chose Enoteca Adriano for our anniversary dinner. Charming, cozy atmosphere, superbly gracious and attentive server, enticing menu items and a great wine. We'll be back!!!!!

For our last night on our beach vacation, we decided we wanted something different (not Mexican or burgers), within walking distance of our hotel in Pacific Beach and not so fancy to be stuffy. Enoteca Adriano fit the bill perfectly. We called to make a reservation, even on a Monday night because we heard it is a small restaurant. Good... More

This is one of my go-to restaurants for a special occasion - mother's day, birthday, etc. The restaurant is small and casual, tables are close together, but the ambience is friendly and vibrant. My favorites are the Burrata Enoteca followed by the black linguine (Linguine Neri) with seafood sauce. It's the Friday special and not on the main menu but,... More

I have never felt so uncomfortable at a typical Italian restaurant. Rushed in rushed out. Before the main arrived the dogs appeared. It might be ok for some but a real turnoff when coping with having courses literally arriving just after completion. The wine suggestion was also rejected. Don't hurry here

Having returned many times to Osteria Romantica in La Jolla Shores, we decided to expand our Italian food horizons, opting for highly-rated, Enoteca Adriano, just below Bird Rock, in Pacific Beach. We called ahead for a table, but arriving at about 8PM on a Saturday evening, had to accept indoor seating; the patio was full. The din inside made it... More
