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.

We visited as a party of 9 whilst on holiday for my dad's birthday, the staff we excellent and very attentive. The food was very very tasty and easily as good as food in Italy. It was reasonably priced for food of such excellent quality. My wife and I returned last night and we had different dishes which were both... 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

We did a takeaway as the kids were too tired. Angel hair pasta and minestrone soup were very yummy, hearty Italian cooking.

Jack & Giulio's was real treat. Great Caesar Salad, tender veal and the staples for the kids (Fettucini Alfredo & Spaghetti & Meatballs) were very good. The pasta sauce was excellent. A little pricey but the food was terrific.

Really good food, great staff but it is Italian in Old Town San Diego which means it is almost required that you go out for Mexican food. You will walk by a dozen of them on your way to Jack & Giulio's but they are exceedingly gringo and noisy whereas this place is rather quiet. They are justly known for... More

After a long wonderfully exhausting day at the San Diego Zoo we needed a nice quiet place to unwind and decided an Italian dinner was the order of the day. Jack & Giulio's was just down the street from our hotel so we stopped by to open the place at 5:00 pm. Our waiter was a bit surprised to see... More
