In San Diego for a week on business and I love Mexican food! But I needed a break from it, so my co-worker and I tried this place and SO glad we did. it was ranked in the Top 10 of Old Town, so we thought why not. We got the panzerotti (with béchamel sauce) and the cannelloni (with marinara... More

We walked in for dinner group of 9 with no reservation, no problem. Efficient service and tasty food. Wanted some veggies so ordered a veal parma, very nice. Followed up with a chocolate mousse. It was very rich and quite firm, not a light fluffy mousse. Very tasty again but ½ was enough for me. Happily passed off the rest... More

This Italian restaurant only serves lunch on Fridays. Luckily, that is when we were there. They had indoor & outdoor seating, The generous lunch portions were excellent.

Dinner here after a day of touring San Diego that ended in Old Town was delightful. Perhaps the rainy day had keep most of the tourists a few blocks away. Regardless, food was great, waiters very attentive. Worth the stroll.

On the last night of our trip to San Diego, we were looking for an alternative to the ubiquitous Mexican restaurants. My wife is Italian and was in the mood for red sauce. We were in Old Town and stumbled across Jack & Julio’s so decided to give it a try. Good choice! Nice ambiance, attentive service, and outstanding food.... More

Your in Old Town San Diego, your thinking Mexican food and it's on every corner right? However, then there is Jack & Giulio's old world Italian! Great food, outside on the patio, casual but nice atmosphere with great service. It was busy, but not loud, not like some of the other places down the street. Full bar, killer Manhattan's, nice...

We make it a point to go to dinner here whenever we are in San Diego. We found it by accident and are so glad we did. The staff are friendly, the food is soooo good! and the ambiance is very nice.

We ordered shrimp bisque which came in a huge bowl but there was only a few spoonfuls in it. It was good, what there was of it. I also ordered linguini and white clam sauce, but it was very watery. For the steep price we paid I didn't feel the food was up to par. If you are on a... More
