“Good Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Nice restaurant, good setting and location with ample parking near by! The chicken pasta was a,az in but the salmon was a bit fishy and overpowering. Waiters were helpful and service was good. Worth a visit- avoid the salmon pasta

“Great food - great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Terrific Italian food. I started with a salad and then had the spaghetti with artichokes, sausage, and zucchini. It was delicious. The service was friendly and professional. A small cozy room with a nice casual feel. I highly recommend.

“Come Hungry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We made a huge mistake in having a late lunch and then coming here. We were served bread with a tomato dipping sauce, simply delightful. The calamari and zucchini appetizer were excellent! We were pretty much full after that. We shared a pasta dish and a chicken dish, both were good but we couldn’t enjoy them fully since we were stuffed. The lot next door will validate parking up to 1.5 hours. Make reservations or you will be waiting in a long line.

“Real Italian fare!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Do not look for run of the mill spaghetti and meatballs here, there is a huge amount of excellent italian choices that real italians eat. The service is outstanding, all italian folks ready to meet your needs. Delicious and very large portions. This place is not huge, but room enough was found for our party of 7 on a busy night. Excellent wine list and some beer too. Fun place. Can't wait to go back when we are back in San Diego.

“Real Italian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at this genuine Italian eatery. The menu offers a wide variety of choices and the service is relaxed and friendly. The atmosphere is family friendly too and the service is very accommodating. I recommend this and plan to visit again next time I am in San Diego.
