I've been a customer of J&G's since 1980.
These days with all the Italian restaurants in town, there is one
always return to and one I refer others to and that's Jack and Guilios. You will be pleasantly surprised and most certainly will return.
Had a lovely dinner with friends from out of town. The metal was excellent and we weren’t rushed.
Best Italian restaurant we’ve been to in years! Excellent service and a good value as well!
The scampi dishes are expert and the house made tortellini verde is surreal.
It's our favorite restaurant & we frequent often.
The entertainment was great out in the patio.
The food was good.
The service was poor because they did not have enough staff working. People were complaining about having to wait too long to get their check and then to get the payment receipt back after paying.
Been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. The food has always been top notch, the service snap on, and now that they are in Old Town, the ambiance is delightful. The only thing I have a problem with is the cost, don't get me wrong, I know the meats they use is excellent quality, but $19.00 for lasagna is excessive. $15.00 would be better.
Me personally, I don't mind paying top dollar for quality Veal.
If you want great Italian and you don't mind spending a few dollars, then Jack and Giulio's is your place.
Great outdoor venue with live music! Excellent service and food.
Tonight was exceptionally great, the food, the music and friendliness of other diners made for a wonderful evening.
Unfortunately I needed to rate gluten free and they had no options for me.
Scrumptious food, delicious wine, friendly service, beautiful outside table. A perfect place to dine with friends or romantic dinner for two.
Did not enjoy my experience. Service was not good. Wait staff make one feel that we are there to serve them. Very tired of this attitude. Will choose very cautiously where I dine from now on.
Food is amazing! Truly a treasure for the culinary scene in San Diego.
Great meal (Scampi all Giulio). Very nice and accommodating server. PLUS...a very good Thursday night jazz combo.
Outstanding in every way!!! Authentic Italian menu offer reasonable number of choices but doesn't get carried away by offering too many things to decide upon. Small menu allows real preparations.
This is a gem in Old Town. The food is fabulous, the service wonderful and the music was fun and lively. We enjoy the outdoor dining as well as the indoor dining.
It was a memorable experience with our family. The shrimp guiliane is delicious
Fantastic, as always! Jack & Giulio's never disappoints!
As always, the food and service are top notch!
Best Scampi alla Giulio is the best Scampi I have ever had ... and will be coming back with friends soon..
The best Scampi Fra Diavolo IN THE WORLD! this is my favorite 0Italian restaurant! The Brutus (Caesar) Salad and Shrimp Bisque soups were also fantastic!
The food at Jack and Giulio's is wonderful, so delicious! The service is terrific, the staff is fun, personable and takes great care of their customers. The live music on Wednesdays is great, entertaining and perfect for the restaurant. The patio dining area is lovely.
Jack & Giulio’s delivers a perfect meal at every visit. Ordered a meal that was not my regular choice, delicious. Scampi, Veal, Chicken dishes are consistently mouthwatering. Pasta is always a wonderful, flavorful homemade dish. Enjoy!
The patio is very nice for dining and our waiter was friendly and efficient. The food was acceptable, but not great. We enjoyed the shrimp bisque, but disappointed the pasta side was not fresh pasta, the Caesar salad overdressed and the shrimp dish a little salty.
Wonderful staff, great food!
This was our first time there. Restaurant didn’t seem well kept. The brought us our drinks and the Iced Tea was so old it was fermented. They also didn’t have straws. When our meal came out it was good. The only disappointment was that they used canned mushrooms vs fresh.
Our Tiramisu looked like a pancake, never seen a flat cake before.
Not impressed at all.
A lovely meal and setting. Very good service. Some customers at the bar were talking very loudly which interfered with the atmosphere. Not the restaurant’s fault.
The Shrimp ala Giulio is wonderful
it was our first time at a restaurant and it was our anniversary. Last year we picked up from jack and guilios and brought it home. Everything was perfect. Can't wait to return. Just found out you will be having jazz on Thursday and hope to be able to go.
Sat Outside with staff fully masked....engaging thoughtful servers. Signature dish excellent ( would have enjoyed to a higher degree if it had been served hotter ( perhaps health rules/ guidelines don’t allow due to concern of burning clients).
Our family "go to" for special occasions. Never a disappointment.
Everything was great. Our server, Sergio, was attentive & professional. He was there when he was needed but not hovering. The scampi & veal was very good. This is one of our favorite restaurants.
Exceptional service and the food is always the best. The tortelloni Verdi, scampi Giulio, Caesar salad, lasagna, garlic bread, lemon drop martini and of course the best desserts in SD: chocolate mousse and ricotta cheesecake. WOW WOW WOW. Best meal. Seriously.
Delicious Mother’s Day dinner!
Outstanding food; great restaurant; however, our waiter was rude, impatient , and condescending. No excuse.
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!
Wonderful and a favorite restaurant for many years.
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.
Always enjoy eating here. The food is always really well prepared. They are shrimp di
Our new favorite place!
