My wife and I met friends who wanted to return there for diner. We had not been there in many years. We had a nice warm feeling upon entering and were greeted by a very friendly waitress. I enjoyed the shrimp bisque and the Amber beer on tap. I did not enjoy the veal with eggplant with cheese that I... More

My friend raved about this restaurant on his last visit to San Diego, but his memory for names were limited. We finally located the Jack & Gilulio's not even close to his memory for names. After this meal I was so glad we did not give up. The wives gave this place great reviews on their dishes, us guys cleaned... More

After a long day at MCRD, we wanted to find a place to chill out and relax. After reading the reviews on TA and Open Table, we choose Jack & Giullo's. We loved walking in and having not one..but TWO people ask where we wanted to sit and rushed to make up a table for us. The ambience is wonderful... More

This restaurant was recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel, and she was right. They claim they have the best shrimp scampi in San Diego. Can't say for sure about that since our experience in San Diego is not extensive, but it was certainly the best shrimp scampi I've had in recent memory. The salads were tasty, the chicken... More

In San Diego for our Anniversary, we knew we wanted to go to Jack and Giulio's for our celebratory dinner. They did not disappoint. Dinners were fantastic with Veal Marsala and their classic Lasagna. Fresh, perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious were both entrees! More importantly, our waiter Alfred was beyond exceptional. He was very attentive, yet never hurried us. He... More

This is an excellent restaurant. Both our meals were delicious and the outdoor patio was perfect for enjoying the outdoors.

Went here with another couple. It was around 7pm, the restaurant wasn't busy at all. We chose to eat inside rather than outside. Our waiter was a bit odd. He was helpful with our wine selections and all but that's where it ended. Our dinners all came from the kitchen rather quickly and brought by the kitchen staff which is... More

This is the best Italian food I've ever eaten and is in the top five restaurant meals of my life. The house special shrimp scampi boasted butterflied shrimp larger than a chicken tender, but the taste made the meal. Superb! Every meal at our table was positively scrumptious. I can't say enough good about this wonderful restaurant.
