We had a large party (8) for dinner. Service was impeccable. Everyone had a different dish and everyone raved about their food. I had lobster fettuccini with shrimp and scallops. Highly recommended! Nice wine list with some great, affordable options. Amazing desserts, my favorite was the limoncello cake. Our entire experience was fantastic.

Enjoyed a great evening here Fabulous food (the fettuccine di mare, a favourite of mine was simply stunning and has probably spoilt any future ones I have!) First class service from our server Ricardo who was so friendly and polite - a real credit to any employer (and his Mamma!!) Highly recommend.

She was very polite and professional and gave me some Cards to Offer our guests here at the Bahia Resort, giving them an appetizer or desert. Once I got there I was... More

From the store front facade to the bare brick interior with period pictures and celebrity autographed photos, you've entered a classic Italian restrauant in the heart of San Diego. I was enticed by the daily special, seafood pasta with a one pound lobster, scallops, and shrimp and my wife had her favorite veal piccata...both were well presented and delicious. The... More

We ate here upon recommendation of a local. We had a patio table and that was nice given warm evenings. You can people watch. The entree prices were higher than we are used to. I had ravioli and my husband had chicken parmigiana. The sauce was very good. One piece of chicken was undercooked. The tiramisu was highly recommended so... More

Tried the food out of this world. They really try and make sure you like the food. And guess what if it's not on the menu they make it for you. Almost all their pasta is home made. I'm coming again.

This is an Italian restaurant in the Gaslamp district in San Diego, California. There are good choices for wines, entrees, etc. I ordered the lamb chops and it was good. The flavors were mixed thoroughly in the lamb chops. It can get busy in this restaurant due to its location. The restaurant staff are very attentive and customer-friendly.

Thank Eugenesmart
