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

This restaurant is in the Old City, very near to the Hotel Circle. It has a nice terrace/patio, but we had dinner inside. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and is nicely furnished. The food was very nice. We had lasagna, veal , gnocchi, garlic bread, salads. It all tasted really good, the portions weren't too big but big enough.... More

What a pleasant surprise to walk from our hotel in Old Town and find something other than Mexican food. After staying a week, we were not in the mood for South if the Border dining anymore. Jack & Giulio's was not just a port in the storm, it was a superb restaurant! THe food and service were outstanding. We dine... More
