“Nice Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

A good Italian restaurant with a large menu selection. You can order many things that are not typically Italian. The Italian wines were also good.Service was very good and the food was also good. Prices were reasonable for a downtown restaurant.

“Large portions!”

This restaurant came recommended by our hotel, good food, very generous portions. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. We were happy with our dining experience.

“Excellent Linguine and Clams!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Very nice service, and delicious linguine vongole. Price is a bit high but we are in the gaslamp quarter so prices match the tourist area. Great food for tourist area. Highly recommended! Patio weather was nice with a sweater on.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Great food in a decent ambience. Found it wierd that a highly recommended restaurant would have a hostess solicting on the street for business. Guess it is the Gaslamp way.

“Beautiful food but beware the specials menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

This is one of many italian restaurants in the gas lamp area of san diego. The ambience and the food were great with mouthwatering veal and seafood.I was astonished that the bill was over £100 ($160) for only one starter two mains and two glasses of wine. The veal was $46 on it's own the meal then stung with local taxes AND a mandatory 15% gratuity on top. I realised none of the specials were priced and silly me I thought specials on the menu are when there is a reduction not an excess. Do go by all means but take a bulging wallet
We were also treated to a floor show; as two heavies came outside then gruff words with the waiter to "request" best tables in the house both with best Al Pacino accents. We left before the final act
