Diner Reviews
  • "Recently, my father was visiting San Diego and wanted to relive an old family dining memory. Growing up, my family and I would patronize this restaurant for some quality Italian Cuisine. This recent visit did not disappoint. Their menu was excellent growing up when they were located in Allied Gardens and just as great today in their new larger, more convenient location in San Carlos! The friendly wait service was second to none. The food was brought to the table in a rather short amount of time. Their intimate bar is a great place to watch a sporting event while savoring a local craft beer or excellent house wine. Will definitely visit in the near future!"

  • "We had several dishes. i do have to say the clams on a half shell (linguine w/red clam sauce) were very good. the chopped clams were tasteless and very chewy...like pencil erasers. out of 3 adults, none of us were pleased enough to come back again. the waitress broke the cork in our wine bottle and said she had done that several times during the night. she blamed the corkscrew because she "is a professional." what does that mean? btw, the corkscrew looked relatively new and seemed just fine. oh well, it is a neighborhood restaurant and gets vibrant business because of that reason."

  • "Nicolosi's has been a favorite since the Waring road location. Good food but a little pricey for a weekly regular pizza place. Highly recommend it for the lunch specials."

  • "Salad must have come out of a bag. Bread had no texture. Take a lesson from soluntos bakery for great Italian loaves. Cannoli may be a specialty, but mine was as hard as a lead pipe. Spaghetti sauce was very good as was the service. Although I indicated both in my reservation request and upon arrival it was my companion's birthday, no special acknowledgement was given by the restaurant. Very disappointed."

  • "A gem in San Carlos! Close to home. Good Italian food. Quality of homemade Italian food & portions are on larger side. Couples & family friendly. Servers helpful & friendly. Better location than off Interstate 8. Navajo Rd & Jackson Dr (old Fish Merchant building). Antipasto was flavorful with meats & cheeses, house Chianti delightful & specialty pizza was mouthwatering! Definitely a family favorite. They also offer 'to go'...after a long day at work...what a treat!"
