read all the hype, tried it. Food and service were good but the flavors but the food was not only not as flavorful as Arrividerci in Hillcrest and also not as great a value.

I've eaten all over San Diego but I think I've found my new favorite - enoteca Adriano! We went with some friends tonight and it was fantastic. OK a few words of caution. 1) they are very specific with reservations so if yu want to eat outside you have to specify it in your reservation. 2) it can be a... More

Quaint ,family style restaurant near Mission beach, which I may now call a hidden gem. The food is simple and elegant, with notes of modern flare but the with the soul of traditional Italian cuisine. Everything on the menu is cooked with the chef's heart and passion. A truly remarkable dining experience, worth coming from Montreal just to experience it.... More

This place is the best anywhere. Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food. We live over an hour away, but whenever we take a day trip to San Diego, the day ends at Enoteca Adriano. Everyone from the hostess on up to Franco, the owner, really cares about our experience. THE KIDS LOVE IT !!!!! We have a 7 and a... More

Been in San Diego for 16 years and I thought I knew where every hidden gem of a restaurant was... Big Kitchen in South Park, D.Z. Akin's in La Mesa, Hash House A Go Go in Hillcrest among my many favorites. I was wrong... Apparently there are others out there and I found one. On Cass Street in Pacific Beach... More

We visit Mission Beach a few times a year and this was our first time dining at Enoteca Adriano. It will not be our last!! We loved our entire dinner. The food was truly amazing, as was the service. Holly was our server and she was perfect in every way. The owner/chef came by to check on every diner, very... More

I was looking for a good place for a date with my girlfriend. I booked a reservation based on great reviews and I was not disappointed. The food (Pollo Melazane & Penne Arrabiata) was delicious and the wine was fairly priced. It was a very romantic atmosphere and felt like a ristorante in Italy. My girlfriend and I will definitely...

We love a great restaurant, but sometimes the best ones have an expensive wine list offering only a couple of choices under $30.00. Thanks to the internet we can review almost any location, menu and wine list to make our decisions easier. Based on the reviews I have read, I chose several restaurants that we were very pleased with. Having... More

So thrilled to have such an excellent restaurant so close to home. Warm and welcoming when you walk in. Food is delicious. The owner/chef is in the kitchen working his magic but finds time to come into the dining area to check on his patrons. The menu is varied, something for everyone. The burrata dishes are served with delicious and... More
