Dont waste your time

I can tell you I have never had such inattentive service from a waiter ever. The food was good but not special enough to compensate for the lack of service. Had to wave my wine glass in the air just to get another glass. Watched him entertain the table next to me but barely could get his attention... read more

Our son lives in San Diego's Little Italy, but he decided to take us to Jack & Giulio's for my Valentine birthday dinner (we went on Sunday night to avoid the Valentine's Day rush). I have eaten at a number of Italian restaurants and I would say this one is the best; my wife agrees. Our menu selections were Chicken... More

I had dinner here and it was enjoyable. The service was excellent. I had a California salad to start, good but a little salty, then veal Marsalla. It was very good.

This restaurant came highly recommended and is in Old Town. I had the lasagna. It's very thick and delicious. I followed that up with Tiramisu. For future reference the Tiramisu is for two people. But I rose to the occasion and I succeeded.

Old town is known for its Mexican restaurants. Jack and Giullo's is out of place, but it is a fine Italian restaurant. We ate there the other night and had a terrific meal. Our drinks were good, the wine delicious, and the service excellent. The prices are very reasonable.I had a breaded veal cutlet that was served with pasta marinara.It... More

Authentic and creative, the menu offered us a change of pace from average. Pleasant surprise tucked between so many fine Mexican places in Old Town. Staff was attentive and skilled, informative and alert. Solid service and great food. THANKS for a nice end-of-day treat in Old Town !

I noticed that this hasn't been reviewed before. The reason we went was we booked it through open table and in the area of Old Town in San Diego we wanted to visit this Italian restaurant came out well. We started with bruschetta and marinated olives. The olives were very interesting and flavoursome the bruschetta was bland. For main course... More

This truly charming restaurant in the Old Town section of San Diego should not be missed. The shrimp scampi and sea bass were absolute perfection. The salad and spaghetti dressings, with a slight hint of anchovies, were light, and better than we've had anywhere, including Italy. Sergio our waiter is a real professional and personable. the original owner still does... More

We met friends at Jack & Giulio's and had a perfect corner table where we could see the lovely lit patio. I had the Valdostana di Vitello and my husband had their other specialty Scami alla Giulio. Both were amazing. The scampi was perfectly cooked and the sauce was light and not overpowering. (I'll order that next time.) Every bite... More

Great food and great service. We dined there twice during our seven day stay. The veal dished are superb abd the pasta is as fresh as it can be. You won't be disappointed.
