The food here was lovely although the service was a little slower than we like, but to be fair we do have a toddler so like to get in and get eating faster than those without kids. Overall a nice dining experience

My wife and I enjoy fine dining here for special occasions, and needless to say this is among our personal favorites for romantic dining. The food is great, I can't say that I have enjoyed every single dish they serve, however, everything I’ve tried has been superb. We first came here last Father's Day Evening and they were serving as... More

The Scampi de Giulio is the signature dish here. Large, Mexican brown shrimp with lots of mushrooms. SO GOOD! Try the gorgonzola dressing on the bread-yum!

We're excited to go to a traditional Italian restaurant host was helpful squeezed us in with no reservations.Our waitress was horrible I'm pretty sure she forgot our bread because I seen that other tables had bread when we asked for stuff they did not have she did not make other suggestions she just said no. I asked for a margarita... More

Had a great meal at Jack & Giulio's on a recent visit to San Diego. We eat quite a bit of pasta at home, and therefore I don't eat much pasta at restaurants as I'm frequently disappointed. This was excellent!

We had a very nice dinner here after a day spent touring San Diego. the minestrone was almost as good as my Mom's, and the chopped salad was tasty, and a generous enough portion to share. Pasta was delicious, as was the tiramisu. Both food and drink prices were reasonable, and service was good.....highly recommend!

Probably one of the best Italian meals I have eaten after moving to CA from NY. The Veal Parmigiana, Gnocchi Imperiali, and Caprese salad were perfect. The wine was also perfect. In my opinion, this Italian restaurant is better than any of the ones in San Diego's Little Italy District.

We were staying on Hotel Circle and wanted a good meal after a long day of playing tourist. This was recommended by the hotel and we were hungry for good Italian food. The atmosphere was great, wait staff attentive, but most of the food was a disappointment. The Minestrone soup was good, pasta with meat sauce was just ok and... More

My wife and I traveled with another couple and all four of us were extremely pleased with our dining selections. The atmosphere was also very pleasant and inviting. Would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in... More
