From the moment we walked in, Giuseppe and Roberto made us feel welcomed and at home. Their suggestions for food and wine were on point and made the experience that much better. We will be back to see them again when we return to Little Italy.

I’ve been here four times and each time they exceed my expectations. The proprietors are incredibly friendly, the place is clean, the food is excellent, and the music is quiet and top-notch. Away from the cluster of people in Central Little Italy, this place, being on the outskirts, is a diamond in the rough!

Don't think twice about eating here if you haven't already. I loved everything about this place. The service is fantastic - very warm, welcoming, professional, and fun. The food was notably delicious and perfectly prepared. I'm often disappointed by meatballs served at local Italian restaurants, but here, they could have been prepared by my late Grandmother. The pasta dish of the evening was phenomenal. I'm drooling thinking of the garlic bread - get it. I want to try everything and will be back!

What a great friendly place for lunch or dinner. The menu and wine list are outstanding. The entire team of Giuseppe, Roberto, Adriana and Ginevra make you feel at home. The live music is just an added treat that makes for a very special experience. I visit at least once every time I'm in San Diego.

Food was very good, and the staff was extraordinary... great energy. Initially, we found the lighting a little off-putting (stark LED), but do not let that deter you. Come in and you'll feel like you've been transported to Italy! And don't pass up the lemon tiramisu!

Came for pasta while out of town. Several apps on the menu, server recommended meatballs and garlic bread. Meatballs were pretty good, garlic bread was average (more hard/crispy than I prefer). Entree/pasta selection changes daily, not listed on the menu. Traditional and green lasagna were available, or penne with scallops. I opted for the traditional. It was good, though I wouldn’t call it the best pasta I’ve ever had, as other reviews indicated. I got the cannoli to go, it was a bit too sweet for my liking. Service was okay. I dined solo and there was a boisterous party near me that occupied the server.

Delicious food, great selection of wines, nice entertainment and wonderful staff. The only downside was that they didn’t have enough people for the high volume of customers on this night and we had to wait 30 minutes to order anything. One of our favorite date night spots and we will continue to come.

We loved the charm and politeness of the staff. The wine, salad, and bread was excellent. The flatbread was a bit lacking in flavor. Pink sauce was strange. Live music was enjoyable. Would come back again for salad and wine!

R&G is a fantastic place! The menu is great and the food is definitely superior. The only thing that’s better than the incredible food is the service! Giuseppe, Roberto, Adriana and the rest of the staff are fun, courteous, very attentive, and very professional. I take everyone there - family, friends, business associates (and even my dog - very dog friendly) - I know they will be very pleased and impressed by the R&G team and the delicious food.

The owners make the place!
It's outside of the hustle and bustle of Little Italy (so nice). The food is made by one of the owners with a great wine list.
Great place . They have music too!

They made the top 25 Open Table reservation for a reason. Lower your exception regarding the ambiance and cherish a small menu and good wine from Sicily!

We met three adult family members here for lunch. They live in Carlsbad, and we were here on vacation from Long Beach. Because of the location and the positive reviews I’d read online, I chose R&G Salumeria. We were all very happy with the delicious food, the outstanding customer service, and the relaxed and easy atmosphere. Both Giuseppe and Roberto made us feel special and did not rush us at all. As a result, we were able to enjoy conversation and a wonderful meal together with family. It was like a little getaway to Sicily in downtown SD.
