We came here after tasting a sample on a foodie tour. This place has a cheese bar that I am dying to come back for and the ambiance is PERFECT for a romantic dinner or date! Food was delicious, service great and ambiance lovely. I look forward to my next visit...bring your wallet!

Went with some friends, the appetizer were great, fresh sweet tomatoes with great home made cheese. The main course, Duck confit was disappointing. It was the special of the day, over cooked, hard meat I wonder why the waiter did not come to ask how the food was? Left with no desire to come back.

Fantastic! Large selection of Italian but creative dishes in a tantalizingly wide menu. The assortment of cheeses is magnificent, the choices of starters has everyone covered. We had several flavorful dishes that would highly recommend, such as: burrata bruschetta, grilled octopus and arugula, the unbelievable fritto misto di pesce e cavolfiore (see picture!), and the mouth watering beet and ricotta...

I was in San Diego for just a night, but I knew where I wanted to eat, since prior experiences at Bice have been great. My dining partner, who does not eat meat or chicken, ordered selections from the cheese bar, and each cheese was unbelievably good. We also ordered the special cheese offering, and were suitably impressed. My veal... More

Stopped in for lunch while on vacation and I want to go back to San Diego just for this restaurant. The food was amazing, the staff was nice. The restaurant was clean. Did I happen to mention this was the best meal I had in San Diego.

We stopped by Bice visiting San Diego for a early dinner, we have a 1 year old boy. Beautiful place we were treated extremely well, food was amazing. Mario and Francesca stopped by the table to check on us knowing we are Italian. We will definitely be back. Gotta try the beeramisu!!!

The food at this small chain eatery is very good with nice service to match. It has a very good location in the GasLamp District, easily walkable after going to Petco Park. Recommend the veal milanese!
