From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by Giovanni, our waiter. I was able to speak Italian and order our meal. He was so friendly. I wish he could have joined us! All of the servers there are from Polermo, Italy.

Our meal, delisioso!

Although - authentic Italian servers and staff but the food we had was aweful:(
The bartender didnt know a dark beer from a can of corn. the seafood dish we had was dried out and tough. The service and pasta was good but overall not a good way to drop $85 on a shared meal. We won;t be back

Great food, excellent service, good selection of wines. Deserts are fantastic! I would have appreciated a few "simpler" dishes for a smaller hunger.

Our second evening in San Diego, we went for dinner in this restaurant. The previous restaurant we went to was okay, this one is really good.
Everybody in our group ate something else, I tasted all four meals and they all were very good. Nothing overly pretentious, nothing too 'Americanized', just good Italian food the way you would get it in a decent restaurant in Bologna, Italy. Even the Italian person in our group was pleasantly surprised.
Staff was nice, helpful and fluent in Italian (he claimed to be from Sicily), he made very good suggestions about food and wine.
Price was a little lower than the restaurant of the day before, with better quality food. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for Italian food.
