de Medici Cucina Italiana
Authentic East Coast ItalianAbsolutely delicious, a real East Coast Italian experience. The Oso Buco and the Veal Milanese were mouth watering delicious. I also recommend the calamari. And don't forget to top your evening off with a cappuccino martini.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGaslamp GemThis is a great restaurant for a special occasion or just a very nice night out. The food is excellent and the service is terrific, especially Juan, whom we have had a few times and are never disappointed.
If you like romantic, great Italian food and good service this is the place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood pre theatre quick dinnerWe stopped in for a pre- theatre dinner and the service was prompt, efficient and professional. Our waiter was friendly and very knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu and wine list. To be fair, we only ordered the salad a Medici, which was simple yet delicious, calamari appetizer and the fettuccine bolognese. The calamari was Fried, but not seasoned too much, so not too much flavor. The bolognese, while adequate also was a bit on the bland side. it was a fine dinner, but not particularly outstanding. I suspect had we had time for more specialty dishes, we might have a better overall view of the food. Great wines and perfect Gaslamp location, great for people watching on the patio.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, charming service!This was a fun experience! Our food was outstanding. Our servers were competent and entertaining in a charming way. On several occassions they prepared our course tableside. On the evening we were there, the restaurant was full of large tables of business associates. On a quieter evening, this restaurant would be ideal for a romantic meal or a special occasion. We ordered the Caesar salad, salmon al limone, and gnocchi - all were DELICIOUS. For dessert, we ordered the tiramisu, the cannoli, and the sorbet with berries - again, delicious. The desserts looked beautiful and freshly prepared. Would definitely recommend!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMJose our waiter made thisJose our waiter made this a true dining experience, we had the table side Caesar and banana desert, top rater, best ever!!!!
