Maretalia Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
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
We took advantage of San Diego Restaurant Week and were very pleased that Maretalia was participating. Although we were the first to dine that day, the service was wonderful and the staff very friendly. The chicken parmigiana and the wild shrimp and cannellini bean salad was delicious. For dessert, the olive oil cake with basil cream was delightful. Loved the relaxed atmosphere and would definitely return!
I ordered the cioppino and received on large shrimp and on large scallop the rest of the soup was clams, calamari and some fish. I would not recommend the cioppino to others. My wife ordered the scallops and risotto and was happy with it. A little pricy but it was OK. The restaurant is very close to Lamb's Player Theatre which is why we were out on the town that night.
Very disappointed. Expected Vigiluccis food and service. We waited 15 mins to be greeted by our waitress and then only saw her again for our orders . Took a half an hr to get out appetizers and then a 55 mins to get our main course. Not once did our server come to check on us.
We won't be back
We were seated quickly and had a nice table in a relatively quiet corner. The atmosphere is very nice, and the wait staff was efficient. Italian food is my personal favorite, and I liked Vigilucci's and was hoping to like Maretalia just as much. The menu has been changed, but there were some nice choices....change can be good. I was disappointed with the dish I ordered, which was pasta "Carbonara." The pasta was over-cooked and somewhat gummy. An Italian restaurant should know how to cook pasta. Overall, I enjoyed the evening. One last comment: When the reservation was made, I noted that this was for a birthday celebration. There was no acknowledgement of this nor any celebratory offering (ie. dessert). Not a big deal, but at least a "happy birthday" or "buon compleano" would have been nice.
