Expensive specials beware of the problematic seafood

Total came to over $200...seems excessive when the two house evening specials were each over $35....so best to ask become the charming waiter recommends these to you.

I ate here with my family on our first night in San Diego - we had to wait about 20 minutes as it was very busy (which we thought was a good sign) ! The waiters were excellent so caring and informative of all the dishes on the menu, I had the ravioli, my wife the chicken and my girls... More

I tried the soup of the day broccoli pea purée and the giardino salad. Both were very delicious and fresh in taste! The service is excellent and very attentive. We didn't have to ask much about anything which was nice. This is a very nice place and it has a feel good vibe all around it.

We enjoyed the meal once we went inside, but the outdoor dining experience we had wanted was marred by smokers a few feet away. But there is a twist to this story. As soon as we were seated outsid, someone on the sidewalk next to us started smoking, so I asked the waitress to ask him to stop. She said... More

Eight of us went here for dinner after reading reviews on Italian restaurants. I agree with the excellent reviews on this restaurant! We had 3 children in our group, ages 7, 3, and 1 1/2. We made a reservation ahead of time then I had to call to let the hostess know we were running late. They pleasantly accommodated and... More

Thanks to the recommendation of the very personable waitress my husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal on our first night in San Deigo. We had veal and crab legs as our main course followed by vanilla bean gelato with berries. The dinner and dessert portions were big enough to share. Everything, including the bread, was prepared perfectly.

Decided to dine here as we were walking thru Gaslamp area looking for a nice Italian place for dinner. Osteria looked good, had a nice number of customers but not fully occupied so we stopped in. Service was friendly and attentive while food was good just not great. Mixed salads were fresh and nicely dressed but nothing special. We shared... More

Hats off to this fantastic restaurant. We had Lasagna and Carbonara - BOTH were excellent and finished it off with Limoncello cake which was beyond delicious. Annalisa is very gracious and makes you feel like family. We HIGHLY recommend.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary at an intimate table, and received an envelope with a $20 gift certificate, courtesy of the restaurant for our next visit! Delicious starter salad with fresh mozzarella, hearts of palm, and vinaigrette dressing. We shared the fish special, sole stuffed with crab, served over lobster polenta- very generous portion. Save room for dessert! The pistachio gelato... More
