We arrived just as they were getting ready to open, but they told us sit wherever we liked. We didn't have to wait long. Very willing to answer questions and accommodate us. Shrimp with artichokes was good, but at hot as I would have liked (temperature wise). Vegetables were good. Filet with Gorgonzola was good and the sauce was good... More

The lasagna was swimming in sauce like soup and the linguini de Mar was dry and flavorless. This wasn't our first time there but I'm sure it's our last.

My wife and I had dinner here recently. We were seated right away and service was friendly and efficient. The food was "superpo". The atmosphere was fun and inviting. We loved the ambiance and soft music. That is, until they turned on the roaring, grating coffee grinder which lasted about five minutes. Surely they could take care of that chore... More

This is our first visit and it was the day after Christmas which turns out to be a "slow" day for lunch, but busy during the evening. So we plus another group of 4 were the only ones in the restaurant. Service was efficient and friendly. We love the cozy, intimate dining room. My hubby had the black linguine seafood... More

We discovered this neighborhood spot several years ago and always make a point of enjoying a meal whenever we're in the San Diego area. Great place off the beaten path in Point Loma. The food is terrific/ authentic Italian. Must haves- osso buco, pasta carbonara, risotto & tiramisu. The staff is great- true Italians! Put this place on your list!

For my birthday, a party of 10 of us ate outside under the twinkly lights. The server was hilarious but I didn't catch his name. From the bread at the outset...to the salads...to the outstanding swordfish, pastas, lasagnas, etc., everyone had a dazzling time. I highly recommend this restaurant and I will be back! Loved sharing the tiramisu with 10... More

After visiting the place for a light dinner we came back again gladly. The food is really tasty (we tried risotto, salads, pasta, scallops) and the service was great: the waiter was one step ahead. We got split plates when we wanted to share (without explicitly asking), take away boxes well packed.

A nice old-school Italian restaurant in a quiet San Diego spot near the harbor. The food is good and the staff is friendly. Very nice.

The pasta/seafood meal was sooo good, shrimp in the meal was delicious! Service was excellent! Only thing that would make the meal better would be if they made the pasta in-house :)
