“Authentic Italian coffee with a smile.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Heard about this place from a friend. I love espresso so I stopped here for a coffee. Not only was the coffee excellant, but the Baristas there were exceptionally friendly. I will be back.

“Little place with huge flavors”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

I love San Diego. Unique bistros like this are a big reason why. Fun, friendly people behind the counter help you navigate the offerings. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can't go wrong here. But the best is always last: gelato! If for only the gelato, this is a must visit! ( Don't forget the coffee....)

“Aperitivo”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

They have just started an Aperitivo from 4-8pm at Pappalecco. We walked in with a few hours to spare on a Saturday night before our flight. There were at leat 8 trays of finger food, salami, prosciutto, cheeses, bread, chips, etc all delicious. Had a glass of Castellani Chianti and we were all set for our flight. And yes we did have gelato, cinnamon roll flavor, pistachio all excellent. Go there, enjoy Italy in San Diego!
