We visited our grandson at UCSD, took him out for dinner. It was our first time here at Enoteca Adriano which have outside dining. The restaurant was recommended by our family member. The food and staff was excellent.

Every time we go to Pacific Beach we eat at Enoteca! It has not only the best food, but wonderful staff. The atmosphere is wonderful! You won't be sorry !

My fiancé and I came here last night for dinner and were seated on the patio which was lovely. We ordered the Orecchiette Bosco and the Gnocchi Casalingho. Both were exceptional, however the Orecchiette Bosco was extremely delicious! Definitely recommend this spot!

Went here upon recommendation of my son and we weren't disappointed. Burrata is the house speciality and with good reason - I had the Enoteca and it was great. My entree was pasta, shrimp and artichokes which was also very good. I'm from NY so...I know Italian food and this was top notch, albeit a little pricey.More

Burrata is very good. Pastas all needed more salt. The spaghetti EA is good but pasta could be al dente. The nest of spaghetti with pesto and burrata was interesting but just ok. The pappardelle with meat sauce (bolognese) was not a hit. Wine options...are nice and service was attentive too.More

Great gathering place for friends in a friendly neighborhood setting. It was our first visit at the recommendation of our friends. The setting was nice though we weren’t thrilled with the food selections we chose which were spaghetti carbonara and veal saltimbocca. Both were mediocre....Others at our table had favorable reviews for the bolognese and sea bass. Parking is available on the street. Seating is available indoors and outside.More

Was in town on business, this place was recommended by my hotel. The food was fine, the portions were small. Being an East Coast person I was expecting something a little more authentic and flavorful. Just missed the mark, I avoid pork and most of...the entrees have pork, the lack of protein variety was disappointing as well.More

We went there as soon at it opens at 5pm and the place filled up quickly, best to have a reservation. Good value wine and the food is well prepared in good size portions, I would recommend the prawns for starter and the gnocchi for...main, so tasty!More

The restaurant was recommended by the concierge. We thought little Italy was the place for Italian food, but they told us to go to adriano's Portions we plentiful...and I like to eat. Food was authentic enough. Pasta fagoli passed the test. Saltimboca and gnocchi were...also good. Staff was very pleasant. Crowd was loud...like an Italian family is. Only fail was.....espresso machine was broken....broke my heart.... You will enjoyMore

To me this was a little like the emperor's new clothes. My wife and I visited on a busy Saturday evening to celebrate my birthday. The place was crowded and very very loud, to the point that it was difficult to have a conversation. I...must say that the service was a little too familiar and kind of brusque. Good wine list. My wife and I had a good cross-section of the menu's highlights. Nothing was bad, but I have to say nothing blew us away. Honestly. We will not be returning.More
