We've had a special birthday dinner here for years and will continue this great tradition for years to come. We look forward to coming to this restaurant. The food is marvelous!

This is my go to spot in San Diego. I can't describe how delicious the food is or how good the service is. Just go, pick any item on the menu, sit back and enjoy.

Italian Gem in Bustling Old Town
A friend introduced us to this little gem in March. The food here is fantastic. The Caprese is wonderful, the flavors and light and fresh. My husband loves Cioppino and says Jack and Giulio's has the best he's tried in Southern California. I've had the Veal Piccata and Veal Marsala and both are FANTASTIC! Dessert is heavenly. Tiramisu is superb but the Strawberries with Zabaglione is to die for. I don' t know what they put in that sauce but I always want to put my finger in the bowl and take in every last drop!

Never Fails to Deliver
Always a great experience . Hit it up for 26th anniversary dinner and couldn't have been better. Tried several new (to us) dishes based on Yelpers' reviews... after two very good salads, Ceasar and California, settled in for the main courses --- Tortelloni Verde and Swallow's Nest. Seriously recommend both dishes. Thanks again to our favorite San Diego Italian restaurant.

Still one of the best in San Diego!
It's so nice to return to J&G year after year (customers for 13+ years) and see the same faces time after time. There are some of the same servers we've seen for years! Jack (an owner) has, each time we've visited, been an integral part of the operation and can be seen at the host station, behind the bar, in the kitchen and making his way around the restaurant chatting with customers. We've never had a sour experience at this quaint and attentive DELICIOUS Italian foodery. If you're tired of the touristy white noise-Mexican food eateries you find on every corner in Old Town, and are searching for a beautiful, delicious and romantic Italian setting, this will quickly become your new favorite; as it has been ours for over a decade!

Excellent as usual
My wife loved the minestrone soup and my son loved the garlic bread.
We all had the "Scampi ala Giulio and it was excellent as usual!

Nice celebration dinner
We booked this restaurant blind since we were traveling to San Diego to welcome our son home from a seven-month deployment at sea and we didn't want to hassle with finding dinner for 8 people at the last minute. He said all he wanted was good pasta, and he definitely got it. We ordered a variety of food among our group (including 2 kids) and everyone was happy with their meal. Ambiance was nice, service attentive and friendly, and food was delicious. A great night out.

Recommended for excellent Italian cuisine. We elected to dine on the outdoor patio which is very pleasant and quiet. Our waiter was attentive but not overly so. Would definitely return.

My runner friends and I always choose this place when in town for a race. Great food, great prices, great location!

Good Italian food
Enjoyed fresh made pasta dishes. Service was spotty...had empty water glasses for a long time.

I been coming to this restaurant
I been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years. Have not had a bad meal ever. I recommend it to everyone I know.
I loved the old Giulios but have learned to love the new Jack and Giulios. The scampi is outstanding and the veal dishes also.
It's is my favorite place to dine.

Where is Valdostana di Vitello?
Loved going to this restaurant for decades (back to when it was in Pacific Beach) -- and for one delicious dish you cannot get anywhere else in San Diego -- the redundantly named Veal Valdostana di Vitello. I took my lady friend Saturday for this "to die for" dish, but it's gone from the menu! Very disappointed. That said - nice venue, lovely patio. Service usually good. Menu excellent but really "old fashioned": recipes Jack & Giulio's has been serving for years. The famous scampi dish is very good (also out of date!) and the little side dish of pasta with marinara passable. You can, it seems, get a substitution of plain veggies if you wish. With my favorite veal dish gone, I may not rush back soon.

Went with my lady friend and her son. I ordered Chicken Marsala, they shared shrimp. We all thought the food was great. Have been there before and wil go there again. Owner and staff friendly.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The shrimp "giulio" was fabulous! Jack came to our table and chatted with us! It was as good as we remembered !!

Fun birthday gathering
We had a party of six. It was a wonderful evening with friends. EVERYONE enjoyed their dinner selections!

We love this restaurant - the food is great and we always get the tortellini verde. They also have great shrimp and they are the biggest and best around. Our server, Jose, did a great job!

This is an old world Italian
This is an old world Italian place with the right menu, drinks and service. A find on a street with mainly Mexican spots.
10/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Definitely worth a repeat
Very good food and service in Old Town San Diego. Must get Scampi all a Giulio or Scampi Fra Diavlo as they are their specialties.
The shrimp, butterflied and sautéed in their wonderful sauces, is to die for!

Consistent for Decades!
Jack & Guilios is a family owned and operated restaurant that has been serving outstanding Northern Italian cuisine since 1961.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best!
If you want to eat Italian cuisine that is prepared expertly, go to Jack and Guilio's restaurant. You will not be disappointed. They do things right from start to finish.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Even tho I had a confirmation with OpenTable AND a reminder email from OpenTable the restaurant did NOT have a reservation for our party of 5! Luckily they were able to accommodate us but what is wrong with the OpenTable system?

Simply a Wonderful Family Tradition
Thank you Jack and Giulio for carrying-on a wonderful family dining tradition for some 40+ years. In a city where Giulios Restaurant blossomed along side so many other great Italian family-branded restaurants, it's great to see your traditional great recipes, food and service carry-on under Jack's care. It continues to be an incredible and traditional Italian dining experience.
