It was our last night in SD, we had over-consumed seafood and Mexican food, and were looking for something different. We've always loved dining outdoors and this place was close. Broad menu selection, great service.

My wife just returned from Italy and we had dinner here tonite during Day of the Dead festival. Excellent service. Wonderful Italian dishes. My wife really knows about the food from her trip. Food here comparable to a good restaurant in Florence.

Jack and Giulio‘ SWA’s a very charming restaurant. The bruschetta was very tasty. The shrimp scampi was excellent and the pasta dishes were very tasty. It is a small neighborhood gem. An excellent meal to end the day.

Just on the fringe of the Hussle & Bussel part of Old Town. We dined at a table outside. The staff and the venue had an authentic talian flair with a little Frank Sinatra playing in the background. We had the Scampi Alla Giulio and...More
