Seneca

$31 to $50
Italian
Roman trattorias are a timeless expression of simplicity. Immune to the lure of gastronomic experimentation and ego. In Rome, no chef can cook better than the mothers and grandmothers before them. Our goal is to merge the dogmatic approach of Roman cooking with the amazing abundance of ingredients available to us in San Diego. A True Roman Holiday In SD.

A 4% surcharge is added to all guest checks.

Why we love it

Alabaster statues and trickling fountains add a Roman holiday-like ambience to this rooftop trattoria. Enjoy lighter spins on Italian food like wood-fired prawns and pizza made with three-day fermented dough. Seneca lives on the 19th floor of the InterContinental, so your Roman feast comes with equally delicious Marina District views.

    Place was beautiful, service was great, I would have to say two of our pasta dishes were fantastic and our other two surprisingly lacked flavor especially the pesto one. So everything was fantastic but the food I found to be hit or miss. I may give them a try one more time due to the ambience, we shall see.

    The perfect spot for a date night or meeting up with friends. Absolutely stunning ambience and I love the intimate bar area —feels like I’m in a jungle and transported to a tropical island. The indoor/outdoor area looks like your in the Palm Royale tv show. Favorite favorite tiramisu I’ve ever had! We ordered the black truffle risotto balls, magherita pizza, marinated olives, wood fired prawns and they were phenomenal! My family had the squid pasta with seafood and I opted for the spring green salad and added prosciutto. I can’t rave enough about this place!

    Beautiful restaurant with exceptional food. If you’re thinking about it, just do it. From the mouth watering risotto arancini, prawns, focaccia with butter and sparkling rosé…there was nothing to complain about. Would we go back? Yes.
