“World Class but a little pricey.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Always the best found and service in La Jolla Shores. The steaks and sea food are a dream. I would dine here weekly if it were more affordable. My mouth waters just thinking about it. The back patio under the huge tree is wonderful.

“By far the best in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is the only restaurant we ate at more than once all week. It's a little more expensive, which is why didn't eat there even more. This Italian food is the best I've had in a long time...anywhere. We both drooled over our food long after. Service is great, food is amazing. EAT HERE!

“One of our favorites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

When I visit our daughter at UCSD we love going to this very special place. Of course we sat outside as the weather is always perfect and if there is a chill in the air there are plenty of heaters.

We started off with the calamari and it was excellent. We were pretty full from eating that and the delicious bread with their special sauce so we skipped the salads. My daughter got the pasta with chicken, asparagus with a wonderful Gorgonzola sauce and again excellent. With our excellent server's suggestion I ordered the special which was the short ribs in pasta, and I can assure you it was one of the best dishes I have eaten anywhere. Absolutely delicious. We topped off our meal with two great desserts.
I can assure you an excellent meal, service and atmosphere at this wonderful restaurant.
Go and enjoy!

“Yummy risotto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Nice little restaurant in La Jolla shores. You have to eat outside to really enjoy this charming spot. We liked the food but found it a little pricy.
