I hadn't been to Jack and Giulios since Giulio was located in Pacifc Beach but easily remembered the wonderful Scampi alla Giulio. The new location is very nice with a lovely patio on next to the street and the food and service is still marvelous. My guests were very impressed and we had a wonderful evening! Love those steamed clams in tomato broth!!!
Service was great and the food was outstanding! The J&G Manhattan is worth the trip and I came from Arizona!
It was fantastic. Food was great and they made us feel special. Our server, Jose, sang to us in Italian. This is definitely a special place.
Five of us ate here Saturday night and only one person enjoyed their meal, which was me. I read the reviews that the food was bland, so I was prepared and asked for additional flavoring to help. The server was not friendly even though we tried to bring a smile to his face, he acted put out the entire night. The patio chairs we sat on are at least 20 yr old plastic chairs but comfortable enough and lots of heaters around. My husbands dish which was $30, he said was disgusting and so did my friend’s, who ate less than 1/4 of her meal but the server didn’t notice or care. The wine was not overly priced, so that was a bonus.
Outstanding canelloni and veal dishes. Good value on the Italian wine selections. Excellent no rushing service. Furnishings could use a little update but you don't eat the tables.
Great place food was great with true Italian flavor one of my favorite places in old town San Diego
We wanted separate checks they said no. The ck doesn’t itemize or show a subtotal it seemed higher then what it should have been.
Portion size not ample however tastey. House wine Pino way over priced.
The food, the service and the atmosphere were all wonderful. Tonight there was live music which we really enjoyed. We have been coming to Jack and Giulio's for over 50 years, it is our favorite restaurant.
Everything we had between four of us was outstanding. Service was great as well as the full bar. This is not a place you would go to have a wild time like some of the other restaurants in Old Town, but rather a place to have a quiet upscale romantic type dinner. Understated classy.
This was our first experience dining here. Jose, our server, made the dining experience exceptional. He went out of his way to accommodate my menu adjustments, all with a genuine smile. To top it all off, he sang for us...a beautiful voice...a beautiful soul.
Fantastic food and service! We really enjoyed our whole experience.
We loved everything!!! Highly recommended!! The food, drink, and service was wonderful!!!

Older, classic interior and awesome food. Definitely recommend.
First time dining there. Every thing was wonderful and we will be returning.
The food was absolutely delicious! Everything was great, nice servers, good service, and we enjoyed it very much! Will definitely go back as the Tortellini Verde, their signature dish, is outstanding.
Cannot beat their scampi!
Jack & Giulio's is our go-to restaurant for date nights and special events. Their food is De-LISH and so fresh. I've been dining with them since they were Giulio's in Pacific Beach. Great food.
We have returned repeatedly over the last 36 years since our engagement. Always ordering the shrimp scampi. It is absolutely delightful. We ordered a house salad this time to share and it was really good, loved the dressing! I love that the wine prices are very reasonable. Only suggestions, put a little money into improving the decor inside and out. Highly recommend!
Always outstanding! A favorite spot to go for a special meal.
We love this restaurant. The food, the wines, the service and the ambience are all fantastic.
Perfect for a quiet evening with great Italian food and a glass of red wine!
Great food, nice outdoor patio dinning. Highly recommended.
This restaurant is OUTSTANDING! Fantastic food, great staff...Scampi A La Giulio is SO Good!!!
As always everything was terrific at Jack and Giulio's. The food was exceptional and the service was wonderful and the music was great. The restaurant is the best Italian restaurant in San Diego.
This has been my favorite restaurant in San Diego for the last 30 years! Don’t miss out!!
And perfect service
Will definitely go back soon
We had a wonderful time at Jack and Giulio's Italian restaurant. We love being able to go there again, it is our favorite restaurant. The food is always fabulous, the service is always exceptional and the entertainment was terrific.
Loved the music, the food was very good and the ambiance fantastic!
Great food and service . Very happy with the value
Food was delicious service excellent. We celebrated our 32 anniversary
If you want to impress your friends, this is a wonderful place
The brochette was very good
The shrimp Giuliano was wonderful
The tiramisu was ok
As usual, excellent service. Our server was attentive enough, but not hovering over us the whole time. Guilio is a fantastic chef; if you haven't tried his Scampi ala Guilio, you are missing out! Great bread, Chicken Marsala, house salad and pasta dishes have kept us coming back for over 30 years. AAAA++++
Fantastic food and service. Best Scampi in town! The front patio was great on a warm evening, and the entertainment was very enjoyable.
The food at Jack & Giulio's is excellent. The service was excellent, and they do take care in regards to making and sanitizing.
The music ensemble, Gemini, is such fun to experience while eating! Sitting on the patio, with fun and smooth live jazz playing, being served delicious good by wonderful hosts was great.
Thank you, Jack & Giulio's!
We have been coming here since 2004. The pasta is always freshly made and the cheeses garlic bread to die for. Their sauces are delicious. This is a place to try and you won’t be disappointed.
We, Me and families members were looking for a nice restaurant. We stumbled on to the restaurant in depuration. We called got reservations and settled in after finding a parking place along the crowd streets of Old Town. WWE found later that the restaurant has a number of nice spots to park away from the crowded streets. The dinner was suburb - we got 4 different recipes and shared. What a delightful meal. We paln to return as often as we can.
We have been dining at this restaurant for over 40 years. We celebrated my daughters birthday there last Friday and dare I say the food is better than ever. The best scampi, valdestona (veal) di vitello, cannelloni and tortellini ever. Thank you J&G.
Always delicious food, excellent service, nice safe distancing on the patio!!
