Visiting SD & just happened to drive by on a Friday night looking for a place for dinner. Place was very busy but they told us to wait at the bar for a few minutes & they'd find us a table. Food was truly outstanding & they have an extensive wine list. Authentic live Italian music that was real fun as the singer was very interactive with the crowd. Great Service & it appeared that most of the servers were actually from Italy!! Highly recommend it!! Lots of fun & great music!!

“Authentic Italian food, authentic, warn Italian people and great music!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

This place is one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego. You can't beat the warm Italian hospitality or the ambiance. It's 100% Italian. Great food and fantastic live music on the weekend too.

“A meal that feels like a visit to a home”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Cicciotti's is a restaurant we frequent when in the North Coast area. This Italian cafe is a former private home, and you feel like you are being served by relatives instead of a staff. Be sure to try the seafood pasta, calamari appetizer and lasagna.

“Organic, fresh & outstanding”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

This restaurant is not big & fancy, but it is wonderful. They buy fresh seafood and organic foods everyday & have no major food storage areas, so guests will never be served anything from a freezer. The owner is on site and happy to meet guests & socialize. It was busy all night while I was there never an empty table. I had fresh Sea Bass with a delicately flavored lemon caper sauce. I usually would choose my fish to be unadorned, but this was done so deliciously it was perfect with the Sea Bass. Lots of guests were eating pasta that looked & smelled wonderful. They have a great wine list also. it was sooooo good, I stopped for lunch on the way out of Cardiff and took soup with me for later.
