We were looking for a place for a really good dinner on vacation that was in walking distance of our rental. After a quick google search we decided to come here... and what a pleasant surprise! The waitress was friendly and attentive, the wine was excellent and the food amazing. I had the Cacio e Pepe al Romano and I... More

We've lived in the area for years and I'm not sure how we missed this place; it's a hidden gem for sure. Excellent food, house made pastas and sauces, good service. We ate outside but the inside looked really cute and will try that next time. I liked that our server offered to make a dish anyway we wanted (substitute... More

This is a quaint, neighborhood, charming venue. The clientele seemed to be mostly locals, although it is in close proximity to touristy beach areas. More than half of the menu items are fish/seafood. I ate the salmon w spinach and pomegranate served on mashed potatoes; it was delicious! If fish is not your fancy, the pasta with meat sauce was... More

As Italians from the East coast we haven't found much in SoCal that excites our taste buds, until Enoteca Adriano! What a find! A charming little place with some outdoor dining not too far from the beach in Pacific Beach, a community in San Diego. Menu items are authentic and well prepared. Many of the usual Italian offerings and some... More

The restaurant is very pretty with fairy type lights outside. The food was great. We ordered some anti pasti dishes and one main and every one was delicious. The only tiny suggestion I'd make us that the outside tables have slightly better lighting. It was actually a little too dark to see and appreciate the well presented food. But it... More

The restaurant is small and personal with Very good food. The pappardelle bolognese was very tasty. The bread was excellent. Service was also very good. My husband was a little disappointed that they do not serve ant soda. They had just flavored water, sparkling or flat and wine.

Friends in San Diego told me that, in their opinions, this is the best Italian restaurant in San Diego. So I was intrigued and my wife and I decided to pay a visit to it. LOCATION: B. It is in the area that my friends told me is called Pacific Beach. It is fairly close to the Ocean, but from... More

I am biased. But not like you would imagine... I did work there. Many moons ago. Franco Tassone (the owner and the executive chef) and I would fight like Cats and Dogs... If I was going to write a review that was trying to hurt him, that would be unethical... If I was still in any way connected to the... More

We had a very laid-back beach vacation in Pacific beach but had a craving for Italian and went here based on very good reviews. We didn't regret it. Showed up a little early for our 6pm reservation but were seated immediately in the semi-outdoor patio area. The server was very friendly and attentive and quite helpful in explaining the specials...
