    The food and service at Sbicca is always outstanding! They do a great job with their salmon dishes, and really understand he gluten free options. We love eating upstairs, but the noise level gets really loud once the the tables become more full. Just a heads up for people who actually want to hear what others at their table are saying.

    We love Sbicca and had been there many times. However we went there for lunch and they had only brunch menu. We order a kids burger and it’s was an over cooked and burned the bread and the meat. The chicken capris sandwich was not made with chicken breast. I personally don’t love dark meat chicken and wouldn’t order it again.

    We sat inside in the dining room and had a large table of extremely loud, obnoxious people next to us. Ever since Covid, the food has been on a different level…definitely not what it used to be. I had the chicken parm and it was so bland! If we go back, we will ask for a table outside for sure! Btw, inside dining has always been noisy simply because of the low ceilings and cramped quarters.

    This is the third time I have been to Sbicca in the past few months. The food has been only fair at best. They are now off my list due to the continuing poor food preparation and quality. You could not eat the steak it was so tough.

    Our waiter, Joshua , was amazing. We were seated at a table right by the stairs in traffic of waitstaff. A table right by the fireplace opened up and he quickly cleaned it and moved us to that table. He had great food recommendations, and when something wasn’t cooked right, he quickly took care of it. He really took the experience to a higher level with his service. And the food is consistently great at Sbicca!

    We made the reservation not knowing that there would be a tree lighting ceremony across the street, which meant that all parking was taken by others. That was not their fault. But, we should have been told that there was a private party in the upstairs dining room, leaving no room for additional guests. They should have informed us of this when I made the reservation. This meant that we had to sit outside in the cold by very hot heaters, or in the bar area. The wedge salad was awful! There was little or no bacon the dressing was sub par the lettuce, cut in several pieces, not in one wedge, was not fresh. The hamburger was just OK, not special, as one would expect in a high end restaurant. The sauce was mundane. Our guests liked their orders: the calimari and short ribs over risotto. We will not be back, given that there are many other options when we pick a restaurant in Del Mar, to meet our friends from San Diego.
