Italian | Encinitas, North San Diego

I have been to I Trulli many times, and have never been anything but very satisfied. This time, my friend and I shared the eggplant appetizer which was the best I have ever had anywhere. The staff is lovely - attentive, but not intrusive. More

Very good Italian food, generous portions, but quite pricey. I guess that is to be expected, on the fringes of Rancho Santa Fe. Very pleasant experience, if you can afford it. More

I love the little changes The Patio made to the decor. It feels more welcoming. There was a group of 4 of us and we shared everything. The Ahi, Brussel Sprouts, Whole Fish and Half Chicken were amazing. We can't wait to go again! More

Discover Encinitas

Encinitas, CA, boasts inviting accommodations, fun nightlife, a wealth of activities and consistent waves. It was once named one of the best surf towns in the world by National Geographic. Whether you choose to surf or just watch the antics, one thing you will not want to miss is eating in the local restaurants. Often people start their day with a healthy omelet prepared with locally grown ingredients like avocados and asparagus. Many seaside cafes offer lobster rolls, crab rolls, and shrimp rolls. It seems that tacos just taste better when they are eaten on Encinitas' beaches. As the sun begins to set, there are many upscale restaurants greeting guests with outstanding seafood and steaks along with gorgeous views.
