They limit dinner to 1 1/2 hours, we were a party of 4. Most other restaurants in the area have 2 hr limit which they monitor loosely as long as you don't set up camp ie your eating and drinking. The manager actually came up to us as we were finishing dinner to let us know we were at our time limit! In the next breath they asked us if we wanted to order desert or coffee's !! This was not cool.....

We were really quite disappointed in the food. It all seemed a little bland and not much flavor. The calamari was great, but everything else was not that great. The waiters were super friendly and attentive, I just wish the food tasted better.

Always have found Sbicca to be consistently terrific. I had fish and chips, which was made with halibut, so the quality was a cut above.

I have eaten at Sbicca many times and always been happy, this time we got our dinner before our appetizers. Appetizers were shortly behind then everything was there and we didn't see another server until they came to clear our plates. As my husband said, "it's a good thing we didn't need anything"... The food was ok but for the price just ok.

We had an 8pm reservation but came early and asked we could be seated early. We were seated in a small table next to the bar window. It was extremely noisy and the space was so tight that people were walking past really close the whole time. Between the noise in the bar and the very loud surroundings We could barely carry on a conversation . We decided to just order appetizers do we could leave quickly.
I guess I wish the hostess would’ve offered some insight into how busy and noisy that table was. We would’ve chosen to wait.
The waiter was however very attentive. He did a good job.
Food was good but not great. The watermelon salad was overdressed. The lobster bisque was lukewarm.

Food was ok. We were seated on the sidewalk area between the front of the restaurant and the kitchen. My husband didn’t like that spot, but i know with limited seating we’re lucky to have gotten a reservation

Our favorite go to restaurant in Del Mar when we have friends visiting from out of town. Upbeat vibe but still captures quaint Del Mar charm. Ahi Tuna is best fish special in town.

Upscale casual. Nice location near the beach, including outside dining. Service is great. Drinks are good, Food is good (seafood, pasta, burgers, etc.), but pretty expensive Overall, it's a solid place if you're up for what they are offering.
