“2013 TAVA Board Installation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

We had 30 people in attendance for our annual board installation. The food was Excellent! Hot and ready at the exact time we requested. Bread was nice and warm and soft! The pasta with the mushroom meat sauce just melted in our mouths! This is a great place to eat. It's authentic Italian food!

“Who knew???”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time -- great ambiance, great food, and great service. And in Chula Vista??? There were six of us for dinner and everyone had a great experience. Too bad I'm only in Chula Vista once a year.

“Best Italian Restaurant in SOUTH BAY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

10 of us had dinner here to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday. With such a large group (& a Sat eve) you might think the service might suffer. Quite the contrary ! We were treated regally.The chef even came out to sing Happy Birthday in Italian. It was my 5th time at the restaurant & the service & food has always been great. Great menu with lots of choices of yummy (cooked on the premise) Italian cuisine. The ambiance is perfect,old country charm. Prices reasonable. Recommend highly!

“Great choice all around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. It is a good sign to go into a restaurant at 5:30pm and it is full. The gluten free option was very good! I can't wait to go back.

“Great food and good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We are so tired of paying outrageous prices for average food. Since this place was close to where we were staying, had good reviews and prices appeared reasonable (although not cheap), we decided to give it a try. It was so good and the staff was so helpful and friendly that we ate here two of four nights during our San Diego trip.

The first night we had their specials: veal and seafood. Both were so very good and that is why we went back two nights later. On that night, we had their pastas. My husband still dreams about their cheese ravioli. I had the pasta with sausage, also very tasty.

If you want great Italian food, in a nice setting, good service without having to take out a loan, try this place.
