A word from Gregorio's Restaurant
Located in downtown Carlsbad is our Italian kitchen, Gregorio’s. Formerly known as Spirito’s, we have been serving up delicious Italian food for almost 25 years. It was originally created by an East Coast couple as a way to share their family recipes. From the beginning we have had loyal clientele that continue to dine with us today. In fact, it was from being loyal customers that we decided to purchase the restaurant. We have always considered it to be our “kitchen away from home”. In 2004, Gregorio’s replaced the name but kept the family recipes we loved so much as guests and have added more of our own. Plus a much more extensive wine list & full bar! We want to encourage you to come, have a meal with us and experience our Italian kitchen. It is our hope that you will make it your own “kitchen away from home”. Our goals are simple

    NY steak was hard, was not well-done. That and the veggies were totally lacking any flavor. The waiter had to bring me Worcestershire sauce to add.

    We were very pleased with our overall experience at Gregorio's. Our server was exceptional and looked after all of our needs. The food was fresh, hot and delicious and our 6 year old loved his dinner too! The place came recommended from one of the employees at Legoland as a place to get away.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/22/2014
    we like to try new restaurants during this special week. reservations and parking were easy. service was great but the food for the price was ridiculous. My scallop rissotto main dish has 2 scallops and was served in a half full soup bowl and our salads were skimmpy. we had to ask for more bread to feel full. It was a nice location and a relaxed meal but we wont be back

    The hostess did not honor the Open Table reservation. She stated, "you just put the reservation in" so you will need to wait. Both hostesses were rude and a bit stuck up because I used Open Table.

    This is the third time we've been to Gregorio's and were hoping to have it become out local "go to" Italian restaurant. Though our first visit was reasonably satisfactory, our last two visits have not gone well. During the second visit, out guest was charged $29.00 for a $9.00 GLASS of wine and my meal was marginal at best. During our most recent visit, my wife couldn't even eat her pasta dish and thought the sauce came from a can. The server was nice enough to remove it from our bill. We were a party of four and all of us thought the food was just so-so. Not what any of us expected. My wife and I will be hard pressed to return. A shame really since it's close to our home and we love to support local businesses.

    Wonderful food, great wait people!! I was disappointed when I asked for fresh parmesan and the waiter brought me a jar of powered parmesan. Train noise was a bit too much from time to time. I will come back... food is wonderful!!!

    We found the food to be average on all levels. The service was good but not great. The bread was the best part of the meal. I do not think we would go back to dinner but we might try it for lunch.

    Gregorio's is a great spot for a nice lunch or dinner with friends, family, or a loved one! I took my mom in the other night and she loved it! She said it was the best EGGPLANT PARMESEAN she has ever had! And don't even get me started on how good the BABY CAKES dessert was! Heavenly. I recommend Gregorio's for anyone who has a good appetite!

  • Good Food / Long Wait
    SunshineVIP
    Dined on 8/3/2014
    We ordered good wine so we didn't mind the long wait for our food. However, when the food did get there it was cold. The waitress said it would take another 25 minutes for a new thin crust pizza or they could heat ours up (which did not sound appealing). She even said the pizza was cold after touching it. We ordered a salad instead and that took a long time too but it was really good.
