“Awesome brunch!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Quintessential Del Mar! A fun place to hang out on a weekend AM and enjoy the patio seating and great food. The hash, the bene's and omelette were all great. The popovers and homemade jam kick your brunch off and the view is fun. The service is good, not great, but doesn't get in the way of you having a great brunch.

“Excellent food, fine wine list, professional staff I think best South of LA”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Informal, mostly outdoor restaurant in the center of Del Mar. Food beautifully prepared, menu changes close to daily, attentive, helpful staff. Meats cooked exactly to your wishes, prices reasonable for what you get. Very fine wine list by glass or bottle. Lovely place to bring a family, children nicely treated, everyone comfortable. Lunch, dinner and breakfast (at least on weekends). One lunch I had the best hamburger I ever had in my life, medium rare. You are made welcome immediately.

“Casual dining experience with good food and dependable service”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Sbicca is a treat in the center of Del Mar. Unpretentious dining experience in a smaller quiet setting spread out over several areas. The rooftop is nice for afternoon views of the ocean. And we've also had working business lunches there by requesting a quieter table inside (underneath the rooftop dining area).
Nice wine list and all bottles are half off on Tuesdays and Thursdays!

“A Del Mar Treat”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

For a casual & well-done restaurant for lunch, you should try Sbicca. Not only is it an interesting spot to people watch, it has an exciting luncheon menu & thoughtful wine list. Last week, we stopped by for an enjoyable lunch (my wife & Standrad Poodle, Annie Little Tail).

My wife ordered the Roasted Beet Salad. I odered the 8 oz Sbicca Burger w/ fries. (Annie had water, which was provided, & I also think they may have a doggie menu, but I could be wrong.) Each of our lunches were delicious.

Please let me add, if your in the mood for a nice red wine, the 4 Vines "old Vine Cuvee" Zin should do just fine.
