Petrini's, in the heart of San Diego's Little Italy neighborhood, serves homemade Italian dishes with a traditional authentic dishes. If you go to Music box, stop by for a dinner and a cup of wine before the show. We offer Brunch, Lunch and Dinner menus 7 days a week.

The diablo shrimp in spicy wing sauce with lemon and cream, served with garlic cheese bread makes the perfect starter to your meal. Some of Petrini's' specialty entrée dishes include the smoked salmon alfredo sautéed with tomatoes and basil, garlic and rosemary served with spaghetti with tangy Pomodoro sauce and the baked white fish coated in seasoned bread crumbs in wine, butter and garlic sauce with Tuscan vegetables. Handhelds, such as the classic meatball hoagie, the vegetarian caponata sandwich with tomato-stewed eggplant and the craft-your-own pizzas, are other diner favorites.
For a sweet end to your meal at Petrini's, enjoy a homemade classic Italian dessert, the layered tiramisu cake.

    I felt very lucky to get a 515 reservation on the day of the Billy Joel and Sting concert at Petco. That’s the reason we were in Little Italy or downtown to begin with and I was very happy with my choice..

    We had a lovely evening on a Monday. We were seated right in time and the service was excellent. Food was delicious. We had the cannelloni, lamb pasta and the mushroom pasta with olive oil. All 3 were delicious and well prepared. The salads were good and not too big. The toast they brought with dinner was a little soggy- the only disappointment. But we had so much food it wasn’t an issue. You will not be disappointed.

    Eggplant parm was delicious. Not a gigantic portion, but perfect for me. Spaghetti with mushrooms and meat sauce was a more typically generous portion, and also excellent. We will definitely return. Also - the house Cabernet did not disappoint! And make sure you save room for the tiramisu!
