With so many restaurants to chose from in La Jolla this is a great choice. The wait staff is very helpful and nice. The food is wonderful, if your not to hungry the lobster bisque is a great choice. The desert is wonderful. The messy sundae is great for a group, but you probably don't want to eat it on... More

We were seated quickly. Attentive server's provided the requested drinks. Just at the right time, it seemed, we made our choice's from a varied menu from pizza to pasta. We chose the chopped chicken salad and the Angel hair pasta with shrimp, artichoke and bacon. Each was enough for two with take home. Each was well prepared and delicious. This... More

Five of us went to dinner here to celebrate a birthday. Best choice that we could have made. The food was excellent. Well prepared and tasty. The tomato soup was very good but recommend that you order it with 'light oil' otherwise, it is a bit heavy. Most of us had salads but one in our party had the Salmon... More

Stopped by for pizza. Got a Hawaiian, ham and pineapple, and a New York, various meats and spicer. Loved rage rim crust, very tasty but the main body crust very thin and soggy with oil. No chunks of pineapple on pizza but flavor was there. Two pizzas (12 inch each) were enough for 3 adults. Great friendly service, nice clean... More

Such a wonderful, friendly staff to serve always delicious food. The sun-dried tomato pizza and chopped chicken salad are my favorites. They have also added some mini-donuts to the menu and they are a perfect light dessert to share.

There are honestly so so many good places to eat in La Jolla now that I would probably choose somewhere else. I usually get the shrimp salad however, it's just shrimp and romaine and the other salads around the area offer so much more. They do have pizzas as well and they are pretty good.

We are pizza lovers, and know a good pizza when we are presented with one. We had 3 different kinds here, and none of them came close to being good. Yet the place was mobbed. What goes???

Pizza and salads are plentiful and delicious. Wines were great, but the sangria and mojitos were not. Had to send those back. Enjoyed it so much we went back 2 nights later and had some appetizers and a chicken dish. Skip the meatballs. Would recommend highly!

Thank you for the wonderful review! Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the cocktails, which are made with Han Soju, so are probably a little different from what most people are accustomed to. We'll definitely keep your feedback in mind as we review our cocktail offerings. We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

Finally Sammys re opened two weeks ago we had missed it for our out of town grand children. We ordered a cocktail and a beer but the cocktail did not arrive until we had finished the shared starter...a glass of water took as long. The food was good, especially the starter of hummus and two other dips. We both had... More
