BICE - San Diego
Italian eleganceI never thought Italian food could be so elegant until we ate at Bice. This restaurant will be a new special place for us. The staff were knowledgeable, courteous and attentive without being over bearing. You must try their home made pasta, absolutely divine!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Meal Spoiled by Noise LevelIt had been almost 2 years since my last visit to Bice. While the food and service were excellent (the specials always seem to hit the mark and the waiter recommended a truly excellent bottle of Italian Sauvignon), I was taken aback by the overwhelming noise level that made normal conversation nearly impossible. Hopefully, this was only a case of bad timing (there seemed to be MANY large groups present), but I am not in a particular hurry to return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good. Service wasFood was good.

BICE San Diego immediately reminded us of the best restaurants in Rome. The food is delicious, the wines are not overpriced, and the staff are attentive and knowledgeable. Our waiter Stefano is a true professional. We can't wait to return to San Diego's Gaslamp District to dine at BICE.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time I dine here, IEvery time I dine here, I wonder why it's been so long since I've been back. The cheese selection is fabulous, the pastas are fresh and perfect and the desserts are decadent. The budino is a must have.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Shinning StarFirst tie and we cannot wait to get back. Lived in SD area now 34 years and this is one of the best new restaurants to come along in some time. Reminded us of our last time in Rome, very authentic Italian cooking. The use of a delicious buratta in several starters was insured, quite tasty. The bronzino was delicious, with a very creative presentation. The portion sizes were ample, we were too fool to sample the extensive list of great looking desserts. Add in a beautiful room and a gregarious Italian waiter and it was like being home. You must try the cheese course, pricy but just heavenly. Easily outpaces DeMedici but at a premium, parking shall cost you $20 with a tip ad the prices reflect an upscale Gas Lamp venue.1/31/2013 12:00:00 AMSan Diego GenNever disappointed at this eatery. The food, service and ambiance is as good as it gets in San Diego. If you havent, you should at least try it.
