“I Love Sbicca”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I have a part-time residence in Del Mar and I always look forward to going to Sbicca. I usually come for happy hour when the food is reduced in price. I sit on the patio, often by myself and I am treated so well and do not feel conspicuous being alone at all. All of the food is delicious and unique in some sort of way. I have even met people here that I call when I am in town. I am told it is a locals favorite. The wines by the glass are excellent and the menu always changes. The food is always consistent and delicious. I can't wait to go back.

“A Gem in Del Mar - Not to be Missed!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

This lovely little gem is located in the heart of Del Mar and exemplifies the refined yet laid back beach feel of the town. Located on a side street, you have a glimpse of the ocean from the charming outdoor patio. The food was wonderful, the service was impeccable and although we arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation, they accommodated us within 5 minutes with a lovely well located patio table. A definite must if in the San Diego/Del Mar/La Jolla area!

“Yummy experience!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We dined at Sbicca at the suggestion of a local realtor and were not disappointed. Trip Advisor reviews alerted me to the upstairs deck dining so we had a great view and meal!
We enjoyed the sesame crusted seared ahi tuna with baby bok choy, forbidden black rice & ginger soy glaze and the chocolate chip bread pudding (a pleasant surprise).

“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.
