For the gas lamp district it is expected to pay more. This is true here. The filet Gorgonzola was great. The service good enough. So for good Italian food, at a slightly elevated price I highly recommend this restaurant. Of course I base this on just one meal, but it was a good one.

My husband and I were vacationing in San Diego and went here because it was rated well, near our hotel and we had a coupon. Food and service was acceptable. Nothing special. There are better Italian restaurants in San Diego.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel concierge which is not always a guarantee of quality. Our dinner was perfect! The calamari salad app (pictured) was fresh, perfectly seasoned, and tender! Generous portion too. As my entree I ordered the ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta. (pictured) Server stated that the pasta was "made on site". It was light as... More

We were here for a business dinner. Someone wanted Italian that night. Two of us ordered the lobster fettucini, which was ok. What I really suggest is what one of my co-worker's ordered: CHICKEN FIORENTINO Chicken breast rolled in prosciutto, stuffed with mozzarella, ricotta and fresh spinach. Broiled, and topped with a creamy mushroom sauce, served atop mashed potatoes. We... More

First off the staff was very nice and friendly. The food was very tasty and had great flavor. I had the seafood fettuccine, which the flavor was good. Unfortunately I noticed the clams had a weird taste and sure enough I became very sick from the food. So I cannot give this a good review.
