Maretalia Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
We saw good reviews of this restaurant and decided to take some out-of-town friends there for dinner. (It's close enough to walk there from our home.) The service was wonderful. Our waiter was helpful, professional, pleasant, and topnotch! The restaurant's ambiance is nice. (Must add, the music was a tad bit too loud.) I hate to have to give this feedback, but the food was just OK -- nothing special at all. Each of us had a different dish and none of us commented about how much we liked our food. It was just... well -- I'm sorry to say, just OK. :(
We decided to try this place out during Restaurant Week, and we totally enjoyed our experience. All the food items we tried were nicely done, and our server was very pleasant. We never felt ignored or that we had to wait too long for anything, even though the place was busy. However, I don't think I would personally choose to pay full price for a meal there regularly, but I would recommend it for a special occasion or business function.
Went for restaurant week lunch. Service was excellent and the food was great. Bread and water were served when seated. Calamari and clams were good as starters. Carbonara and chicken parmigiana were also fantastic and serving size was adequate. Added a tiramisu which was really nice.
The Maretalia Ristorante is an outstanding place to dine. Both of our meals were beyond our expectation. The service outstanding.The calamari my wife ordered was tough and it was quickly removed and replaced with outstanding Brussels sprouts.. We will dine there again!!!
The parking under ground is very expensive. $15.00 for 2 hours.
Beautiful setting and Gabriella did an outstanding job as our waitress. Place was spotless. All staff's attitude was on target. Food portions ample +. Runners brought from kitchen--good!!
HOWEVER the food itself was average. Ok. Not bad--just ok.
That said we will return and see if it was an off nite for the kitchen.
Everything on the menu was amazing... we had 4 appetizers including the roasted carrots, meatballs, arancini’s, and crab toast. The oxtail gnocchi was too die for. And the agnolotti with the brown sage butter was amazing. Hats off to the chef and staff at this amazing restaurant.
Our group was welcomed and seated immediately. Our server came to the table quickly to take drink orders. She was very knowledgeable with regard to the wine and beer list, as well as the food menu. She addressed several questions and was very friendly. The food was excellent as always. I have dined at this restaurant several times before and have never been disappointed. It's a must stop every time I am in Coronado.
Went for restaurant week lunch. We had great service from start to finish. The pasta is delicious and presentation was beautiful. We had bruschetta, clams, gnocchi & the Bolognese (savory). We didn’t have a chance to have dessert due to we had to get back to work, but we’ll defini be back to try!
Wonderful! First off let us start with parking. The meters are only 25cents an HOUR! Your lucky to get 12 minutes for that quarter in downtown SD. Then walking into Maretalia you are wow-ed by the decor and cascading water wall. We were here for Restaurant Week. They skimped on nothing! The choices were wonderful. I picked the calamari as my first dish. My husband picked the crab bruschetta. Both were large portions. The calamari was very light and crunchy and served with two sauces. The crab was served on three slices of good size toast. And there was enough crab to cover each slice. Our entree choices were the Spaghetti and Meatball, and the Chicken Parm. The meatball was huge and the sauce-authentic Italian. The Chicken Parm covered two thirds of the plate with a good portion of pasta on the last third of the plate. More than we could eat following the first courses! Our waitress was attentive and knew the menu. The plus here is the craft beers on draft! You have a choice of indoor our outdoor dining here. I would come here again-in a heartbeat!
We tried this place for restaurant week and were very disappointed. The food was not very good at all and we were really surprised at that! We all ordered from the restaurant week menu - three of us getting an appetizer, salad and entree and the other ordering an appetizer, entree and dessert. When our appetizers came, so did our salads! Exactly together! No time to enjoy the first at all. The caesar salad was overwhelmed with garlic - way too much and just ruined the whole flavor of the salad. When our entrees came, the pasta dish was beyond dry - we asked for more sauce and had to wait 15 minutes before getting that. By then, our pasta was cold. Our waiter was no where around and in fact, we had to go find him to get our check 30 minutes later! I know the owners of this place have several restaurants in Coronado so maybe they aren't paying much attention to this one. We can only guess that was the reason for a very disappointing visit! Too many other places to try - this one will be off our list!
Tried this place out for restaurant week and didn't disappoint. The service was very nice. Since we got an appetizer, main entrée and dessert, every thing tasted so good and was so worth it. After the meal, the portion of the dessert was perfect and just the right size. Would definitely recommend this place.
I liked the ambiance, but since we were the first guests to arrive for dinner, I was bummed that the greeter did not ask us where we wanted to sit. I purposely booked at sunset time and would have loved to sit on the side with the beautiful view of the sunset, not on the side facing the street. As it was our anniversary, I also kinda was upset that they did not do anything special, no happy anniversary on our dessert or anything like that. The food was good, only compliant was that one of the dishes was pretty salty. Restaurant week is a pretty good time to try their different options.
My husband and I were on vacation and decided to try this Italian restaurant. The menu in open table said the entrees were 13 for spaghetti and 14 for what I wanted. That price sounded reasonable. However, when we arrived for our reservation and the host seated us and gave us menus, the prices were $10 higher for each meal. My husband and I were upset. We decided to leave the restaurant. Upon leaving we checked the menu displayed out side and the prices were the original ones we had seen on open table. We felt like it was a bait and switch. They need to get there menus figured out. So no real review could be done.
My husband and I very much enjoyed Maretalia! This was our second visit and we noticed improvements in the food and atmosphere. The swordfish in the tomato broth was superb and the gnocchi with Italian sausage was truly delicious! A home rum in every respect!
We were so thrilled with our evening at Maretalia. Especially loved the atmosphere in the bar and were pleasantly surprised with the live piano. Great for a group or can be intimate and romantic. The food was amazing and the staff exceptional...we will definitely be back!
Thanksgiving dinner for 7, at 5:15 ... nearly empty, which made it nice and quiet ... and good for us. Food was fairly good but expensive for the occasion. Drinks were great. Service was quite slow since there were so few people. But service was friendly. Thanksgiving at this location is tradition for us, but it has changed owners and names. Typically my husband and I eat most Friday evenings in the bar for happy hour, so our official opinion of this new ownership will rest on how much we continue to enjoy Friday’s. At this time, I’m undecided on this venue for next Thanksgiving.
We recently moved back to Coronado, and read that Blue Ridge Hospitality had opened a new restaurant, so we wanted to try it out. It was my husband's birthday last Sunday, so I mentioned it while making my reservation on Open Table. After our dinner was over, the server brought out a square of Tirimasu with a lit candle. I was thrilled they remembered. What I was not thrilled about was our bill. When my husband and I reviewed the charges we noticed they added $11.95 for the Tirimasu. I was a little taken aback. Had I known we would be charged for the dessert I would have definitely ordered something different. Unfortunately, Maretalia is not part of the other 99% of restaurants that comp a birthday dessert...although it would be a nice thing to do considering their menu prices. Bottomline: it was my fault for not verifying the cost of a birthday dessert.
The service in this new restaurant was excellent. The food at this restaurant is nice, but not anything special. We had a variety of items and they were well prepared, but small things were "off." Pepper was missing on the carbonara, the vegetarian appetizer had clearly been fried in oil that had fried fish and thus tasted like fish, etc. I miss the restaurant that was previously in this same venue....
We went for Happy Hour and had calamari. Portion was large! Then we were seated at a table in the main restaurant and had linguine/clams and fettucini bolognese. Both were very good. The bolognese was a large portion and very tasty. Would highly recommend this restaurant. We were able to walk there from the DelCoronado Hotel, which was a plus!
Service was impeccable and the restaurant is beautiful however the food left something to be desired. I eat out often and I've traveled the world so they had me hooked with a robust Italian menu that fell flat when tasting each of the dishes. I wish they were more flavorful but if you're looking for a dining experience to knock your socks off this is not it however the service and drinks were amazing
