Marisi

$50 and over
Italian
Discovering Italy by way of La Jolla, Marisi focuses on Italian hearth cooking with an emphasis on handmade pastas, fine wine and classic cocktails. The menu celebrates the rich diversity of cuisine from across Italy, fashioned in a time-honored tradition of handmade all day, every day. A dream that lives between the Italian and La Jolla coasts, suspended between tides instead of time — a mood more than a plot. A visit that feels a lot like coming home, if home was a warm, charming villa off the Amalfi coast. Marisi is a taste of something you want to remember. We hope you love it.

Why we love it

Executive chef: Chef Cameron Ingle

This dainty Italian restaurant is a La Jolla newcomer, but it’s already made an impression thanks to standout farm-to-table fare from executive chef Cameron Ingle (of Bouchon Bistro and Bestia fame). Toast with vermouth before digging into winners like einkorn cavatelli and bite-sized agnolotti.

    Was looking forward to bistecca Florentine which should have been a rare to medium rare steak with a little olive oil as it would be served in Florence but instead was swamped with a butter sauce which ruined a $200 steak. Should’ve tried to Americanized it Loved the bar and decor rest of the food was just ok

    Lovely place, great vibe and hopping! My husbands pasta dish wasn’t the best So tried carbonara and that was much better. Great cocktails! Salad was tasty and a bit tarragon-y which wasn’t advertised but fortunately we liked it 😋

    Overall a bit overvalued for portion size, but no complaints on taste. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the service was attentive and cordial. The ambiance is a bit louder than expected fur to it being an open patio and still having music on speakers. Only reason to knock off a star was that the dessert menu was lacking. All in all, I would return perhaps when their menu changes for the next season.

    The service was top notch! Very attentive, knowledgeable and consistent. The restaurant is extremely beautiful. The food, which my wife and I love, didn’t seem to have the same creative spark as it has in previous menus. The quality of the food is impeccable. We will be back!

    Last night we had one of the finest dining experiences ever. Our server was Gavin. He was knowledgeable about the menu, and made recommendations we selected, that we were very happy with. Throughout the entire evening, he made us feel like we were the only customers in the restaurant, frequently checking in on us, making sure we were taken care of. This is the first restaurant where the server took it upon himself to bring us an extra appetizer which he overheard us discussing. Quite the surprise. I highly recommend treating yourself to Marisi for a special evening. If you do decide to try them out, I would highly recommend asking for one of Gavin‘s tables. Thank you again, Gavin we will see you again.

    We were hoping for heartier meals. The food we ordered was good, but overpriced.
