Service was a little slow. Bartender was our waiter so he had to do both however very friendly. Food was very good.
Great food and excellent service!
The food was good, but nothing "special". Basic simple standard Italian menu favorites. The minestrone soup and chicken parmigiana were good.
The bread pudding desert was a MUST HAVE.
That desert elevated the caliber of the rest of the meal.
The service was warm, friendly and attentive.
Great service! Will definitely take the family there again.
Food was ok, service was ok.
A new and upcoming place in San Diego with excellent fresh italian food and plenty of choices. We have been impressed in the 3 times we have been here.
We love this place!
Cocktails were good. Food was fine; lasagna better than previous occasion.
Overall quite nice. Waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. My only gripe was
the entree came out literally 5mins after salad delivered. Sorry, this is a big issue
of mine. Believe the kitchen was running at full speed while dining room less than
half full. We’ve been to DiCiccos before and will return.
Added 4pct surcharge on the bill left a bad taste in our mouths after a subpar meal comparable to Olive Garden. Service was outstanding though.
If you need the 4 percent that much, just RAISE THE PRICE OF THE FOOD, rather than hiding it. Deceptive business practices aren’t ok.
We will NEVER come back.
Wanting to try this new restaurant, we took a college graduate and his family for lunch and were very pleased with the meal and service. We were able to be seated on a semi-private room which was great for the occasion. We will be back!
I am loving the manicotti with Alfredo sauce. OMG!
Went for wife’s birthday. All dishes were very good.
Our overall experience was excellent. We will definitely be back.
LOVE the fireplace and live music. Love the dark classy lounge with the bullet button on the leather/pleather? This was my second DELICIOUS meal. (first was the spaghetti limone and this time ravioli marsala. YUM. Red wine pinot noir 10$ was fair. Sangiovese better.Love the lite up bar area. This time I didn't notice any crashing glasses/bottles. Our server was apathetic. Both of us did not think he was friendly or attentive enough.
Every one was friendly and had great service and also food was excellent. Didn’t have to wait got seated right away. Would recommend this place.
It was fine, however there are several better places to eat Italian food in Escondido. A couple of notches above the Olive Garden. We seldom eat at chain restaurants, so it certainly won't be our favorite place, but not bad as chains go.
This was our second visit to DiCiccos and they didn't disappoint. There were 5 in our party and we ordered Lasagna, Chicken Marsala Raviolis, Combo, Eggplant Parmeseanm and Cheese pizza. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was good not too fast or slow and everything was priced reasonably. The individual salads are huge and serve as a meal.
The food was amazing and our server was awesome! We look forward to going back!
The food was taste and served hot. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and accommodating.
Been here a few times. Service and food was great.
DiCicco's is a lovely addition to our restaurant choices in Escondido. The new owners did a great job with the new interior decor and seating layout. I would like to see at least a couple more entre choices that aren't breaded. The mushroom raviolis were delicious.
I am looking forward to enjoying the music in the Bar Thursday thru Sunday.
Thanks for being here.
The Cork and Knife is a pretty cool nook off the Bar too. And the deck is inviting. Can't wait to see the new area under construction off the parking lot to be finished.
Recommend very highly!
Service was great, our reservation was ready with no waiting time. Food was very good wish the entrees included soup or salad.other than that
A very nice Mother’s Day outing!!
I would dine here again! Food was so good . I love the interior. Our waitress was great !
I used to go to DiCicco's in Fresno all the time growing up, it was great to see they opened one in Escondido. Brought back great memories and it did not disappoint. The food was as good as I remember and the service was fantastic.
The manager is fantastic and his people are very well trained. This is clearly one of the best managed restaurants in Escondido. The food is great, the service is amazing and everyone does everything possible to make it a pleasant experience. Please do not change!
Could have given more fried zucchini with the order. The bread was good - but too thick of a slice - cut smaller so you have more slices. Red sauce was on point, and I like that they didn't skimp on the sauce with the pasta. THANK YOU.
Nice wine selection and great Brussel sprout appetizer
Excellent food and service. Veggie Eggplant Parmesan was to die for. Bartender Scott is fabulous and friendly. Will become regulars here!
My Spaghetti Limone was excellent. My Husband thought Joe's Lasagna was a little better. The side salads were 5 star. The Tirramasu was darn good. Will order again. We'll be back.
Great service. All 4 of us said our food was salty and too much pepper added by chef
Next time we will request no salt and pepper.
Other than that food was very good
The wife and I drove past this place many times and realized we needed to try it. Food was fantastic, I ordered a meat lovers pizza and my wife ordered the lemon chicken/ pasta. Both were so good. Will definitely be back to try some more items on the menu.
Great Management, wonderful service and great food. We keep coming back because this restaurant does a great job of making every meal an experience. Not too much they could do to make it much better.
Great food, Great service. Very friendly staff. Great atmosphere.
The food was amazing and so was the service. It was a quiet weeknight and our big family with small children felt so welcomed. Highly recommend the chicken spaghetti limone!
Great service, we sat in the bar for dinner, everybody was helpful, even the owner/manager? as we walked around the venue looking at the private dining rooms, which are very cool! Our server/bartender was the best, he was very attentive despite being the only one working the bar area. Can’t wait to go back and listen to the music, especially with Dave Scott and Bobby Lanuza!
The Portions were very adequate,
and the Taste was excellent!
Food was good but the service wasn’t. Perhaps the waitstaff was stretched?! Had a bottle of wine, staff didn’t check to see if our glasses needed filling. Dropped off our food but didn’t ask if we needed any added parmigiana or red pepper flakes. Finally flagged down another waitress who got them for us after a few attempts.
I want the place to be successful. We will try it again to see if it improves the service.
Seafood fettuccini Alfredo was terrific
Italian sausages were amazing
Caesars salad was delicious
Cannelloni was just so-so
We really enjoyed our party in the Godfather room, which seats up to 12 people. The service was excellent and everyone ordered food they enjoyed. I like this room because you can close the glass doors to keep the noise level down.
Everything was great. Food, service quick, friendly, nice atmosphere
