Plenty to eat and beautifully presented. The only reason I gave 4 stars for service is that it is a bit slow. Most likely because of staffing shortages. But it was friendly and accommodating. Plenty of room on the patio, and outside heaters cut the chill.

They have one of those big huge egg shaped pizza ovens from Italy and it makes wonderful pizza. The pasta is fresh and delicious. I had squid ink with a red sauce sprinkled with baby cherry tomatoes that were just sweet and delicious. My pasta dish included wonderful shrimp cooked to perfection. The menu prices are very reasonable mainly everything under $20 and the portions were generous. Couldn't ask for anything more! Chef Thank you For a well prepared meal!

Last night we decided to give it another try - on the patio. The food was wonderful. We had calamari, lamb chops, pasta bolognese, and Nutella pizza for dessert. All sinfully delicious! The ambiance - I mean, you’re sitting basically in the street with traffic going by you, but at least it wasn’t too noisy, so for us it was fine. For everyday casual dining, this place is perfect.

I understand that the restaurant close at 9pm but they shouldn't accept reservations at 8.30 if the wanna close at 9.

Inspire of their claim to limit length of dining times a table was not ready for us. They cobbled together two small tables and half our party sat on uncomfortable folding chairs with two people literally on the sidewalk. Service was lousy plus the mandatory 20% for a “large” party (I guess 6 people is large these days. Crummy experience food was average. Lots of better places in La Jolla.

Always a good experience here overall and sometimes outstanding. Last meal there felt like an off night but still recommend.

Highly recommend this restaurant and we will return many times...probably only on a Sunday, because that is the only day they serve Lasagna and Eggplant...

One person had the mussels, and the broth was one of the best they'd ever had. The beet salad rocked as well. Unfortunately, one person ordered the chicken and it was very dry. But everything else (including the Budino for dessert - highly recommend!) was fabulous. Will definitely be back again. This was our second visit and had invited 3 friends who enjoyed it as well.
