Everything was amazing.
I'd been wanting to go to Cesarina for awhile now and finally got the chance to take a friend for her birthday lunch. It was a Friday afternoon, and not crowded so it was mostly quiet but still with nice ambiance. We both ordered a glass of wine, and when I accidentally knocked over my friend's glass an spilled the wine, they quickly showed up with a replacement glass for her. The pasta was fantastic, although a little on the pricey side. I had a wild mushroom pasta and my friend had the day's special ravioli. Both were wonderful. Because I had informed Cesarina that we were coming for my friend's birthday, they brought an outstanding dessert to our table to celebrate. The dessert was made with lady fingers, drenched tableside with espresso, then covered with marscapone - wow! I didn't plan on eating dessert, but it was delicious! I will definitely go back, and my even order take-out pasta this weekend.
Great food and service at every level. Highly recommend Cesarina! We celebrated my daughters birthday and the staff sang to her. It made her night.
We both tried the Vegan Mushroom sauce on the gnocchi. Will not do that again. The dish was tasteless and the gnocchi was clumped together into a thick, doughy mass. Neither of us could eat more than a quarter of the generous serving provided to us. BUT the Barbera wine was superb, the house-made breads were fabulous and the two desserts we ordered (Cannoli and Zabaglione) were superb. Watching the desserts being assembled table-side was an unexpected treat.
Cesarina is the best Italian restaurant in San Diego so far. The food, the ambience, employees... everything is so great! certainly you will have a good experience! The patio is extremely cozy. ❤️
Fantastic food and atmosphere. Great for a birthday celebration.
A warm and friendly Birthday celebration from great staff and wonderful food. The dessert assembly at the table was an extra treat we had not experienced before as we are usually full. The Tiramisu and Zabignon were light and yummy and made great birthday treats. We also enjoyed the special Italian song from staff. Save room.
Lovely food, warm friendly happy ambience. I wish this was in my neighborhood!
I have been to Cesarina many times & have always been happy with the food & service.
Food was good, service was outstanding but the noise level was too much for me
Wonderful as usual. The vegan tiramisu was especially good!!!
We loved it! And we will return!
This was an amazing dining experience! Food, service, and atmosphere all was amazing! I can’t wait to go back!!!
Always amazing. The pasta is so fresh and delicious. Everything was cooked to perfection.
Enjoyed our meals! The pasta dishes were all very good ! The desserts were spectacular. Great presentation and very delicious.
1. The special with ricotta gnocchi was chewy and not something I can recommend.
2. The other pasta dishes were amazing.
3. It is fun to watch the woman making pasta while we eat.
4. The dessert was too heavy and upset my friend's stomach.
5. Espresso was perfect.
Loved it! Food was wonderful and very fun ambiance.
Very noisy on a Sunday night. Server kept trying to remove plates while others in the party were still eating--made us feel like they were trying to get us to vacate the table. Very unprofessional
Some of the best Italian food in San Diego served by a wonderful interactive staff whose only desire to produce an EXCELLENT dining experience. Niccolo and his team having a winning combination.
This place is always amazing, great staff and the best food! I love coming here everyone is so nice and attentive one of the best places to eat in San Diego!! A+++++++ 5 stars!!!
Trying to have a fun evening with friends, conversation, drinks and dinner. No relaxing this evening, the entire meal was rushed. Salads arrived around the same time as the first glasses of wine. Pasta dishes were no far behind. No time to enjoy the evening. Felt like hurry up eat your meal and get out so we can turn the table. Highly not recommended for a special evening.
Delicious food, beautiful atmosphere, and an all around great vibe. I’ll definitely be back soon!!
The food was wonderfully fresh. Our waiter was patient answering all our questions and telling us how to pronounce the names.
Really like the service. The staff were very kind and nice. Love the plates are handmade with art. The food delicious and a special star for the dessert!
The food and service was very good. We will definitely go back.

Everything was amazing. From the ambiance to the perfect pasta. We will definitely be back every time we visit San Diego.
My husband Dave and I had one of the best New Year's Eve experiences!. This will be our 5th visit, and have never been disappointed!.. The dinner was a pre-fix 7 course dinner, which was superb! We have enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and now New Year's 'Eve!
This was quite a tour de force. There were several seating's which allotted the diners to spend 2 hours and 15 minutes, which worked out perfectly. The service of all of the dishes were timely, and the servers were very congenial.
We decided to sit indoors, and we were very fortunate to be at a table, right in front of the band. The female singer was energetic, had a great voice, and a sense of humor. She included the diners in some of her songs, which was fun! The musicians were excellent as well. The name of the band is "Big Lucky."
I want to thank both of the owners whose names are Giuseppe, and Niccolo for an unforgettable NYE.
Thank you, Melody and Dave Miller
New Year’s Eve menu was fantastic and the staff and ambiance were amazing as always! Thank you!!
Went there for the prefix menu on New Year's Eve. Had a party of 8, which is large for the restaurant. We had such a wonderful experience, I can't say enough good things. Every detail was impeccable on a very busy night, down to blankets and hot water bottles to keep people warm in a very well heated outdoor patio. The food was amazing....every course, and there were 7 of them. Extremely well priced at $75 per person. Wait staff were very accommodating and professional. They were able to make accomodations for 4 vegans and one person with a nut allergy in our party without batting an eye. Will definitely go back next time we are in town.
