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...

The food was great and some nice menu choices. Portions very ample and wonderful homemade pasta. Their meatballs melt in your mouth!

Enoteca Adriano is a very pleasant surprise, out of the hustle and bustle of San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood. This is the 2nd time we've been there in two years (on an annual trip to San Diego), and with the large number of restaurants in San Diego, that says something in itself. We got there quite early to assure a... More

Our last night in the Pacific Beach area and we were looking for something delicious, and possibly away from the noise and slightly loud groups in establishments close to the beach (we had enjoyed them other nights, just wanted something different this night!). We found ourselves here. It appears to be in the middle of a neighborhood. It had a... More

They have very friendly service! Our waiter was Drake and he was super awesome and attentive! They use very fresh and good quality ingredients. The popes pillow for dessert is a must!

We are foodies and have been to Italy often. That said, we are delighted to have found this gem in San Diego. I won't go on endlessly, but will just say Enoteca Adriano is authentic and exceptional in all respects. My only "complaint" is that the noise level is a little high. But hey, that's the sound of people enjoying... More

Excellent local restaurant with very reasonable prices, excellent service and consistent Italian food. Reservations are a must. Can be very loud when crowded so sitting outside is a nice option when the weather permits.
