    Buratta was ok. Short rib ravioli was excellent. Truffle pizza was good, the gluten free crust was excellent. Fennel sausage pasta was okay. Waiter was good but service was slow, although the food came out fast, even before the wine was served. Great to sit outdoors and overall good, but not remarkable.

    Lobster ravioli was out of this world. The only thing we didn’t like were the raw oysters which was not their fault. I just don’t like really big oysters and the raw oysters they served us were huge.

    Giuseppe really made our night. Just a good guy who really cares about the guests having a wonderful meal and goes the extra mile to ensure great service when no one else is stepping up. If you’re a customer, request him, if you’re a restaurant owner, poach him. Also, the Lamb Ossobucco is great.

    Started a little rough. We had Open Table reservations but the hostess didn’t seem to care (that caused issues later with Open Table) she ask us indoor or out, we wanted indoor. Walked us in but was told it was closed? So we sat back outside and ended up catching the sun on our table as the sun was setting. Hostess didn’t bring us a high chair or menu for our 2year old. My daughter went inside and looked for a high chair. Our server was great but she was busy so there was a little wait on boxes and check. She did tell us there was a child’s menu we could order off of. Food was ok but to be honest, the food was not as good as La Mesa Farmer Market.

    Food was good but the service was not. Waiter stopped once during the whole meal, did not clear the appetizer plates before bringing the main dishes, and did not take them away even after dropping them off. Waiters and helpers not in a good mood, and the whole experience reflected this.

    The vegetable soup with meatballs was good and not heavy. My chicken pizza was very disappointing. The outer crust was good, but the 80% inside was soggy and unappealing. The chunks of chicken were too big, but the tomatoes were delicious. I would never order it again. My friend had the roasted chicken and it was good, but nothing special I like this restaurant for breakfast, but not lunch or dinner.

    It’s a great spot. There were a few glitches — the computers went down so after 30 min they realized our order was lost. They tried to rush it to accommodate but 1/3rd of the orders came back incorrect but they did their best to accommodate. Still can’t figure out the receipt — not sure if I was charged 50% or 200% of the actual meal price. I really did like the spot and the food — I’d definitely go back, think we just had a series of glitches this time around

    The kitchen staff forgot 3 of the ingredients on my pizza from the menu. And then when they remade it, it was rushed and undercooked. The service was very slow and the server did not check on us often and it was about the 4th time I’ve experienced this type of service and issues with food here so I will not be returning.

    My family and I are here on vacation. After seeking out a restaurant with gluten free options for my wife and 2.5 year old child we were looking for to pizza and pasta. After ordering GLUTEN FREE pasta for my daughter and wife the waitress comes back 10 min later to inform us they ran out today. Then we ordered two GLUTEN FREE pizzas to which the waitress comes back after another 5-10 min and informs us they are out of those. Too late to go to another restaurant with a small child we ordered food we really didn’t want. The most disappointing part is the wait staff not being informed they were out of gluten free pasta and pizza. As we were clearly upset the waitress at no point was apologetic, you’re in customer service, being apologetic is important. The waitress was annoyed with us and past us off to another server which was unprofessional. I feel we were very calm where a lot of people would of left or cursed out the staff. Thank you so much to Antonio for taking over where the waitress clearly couldn’t “handle” a couple of upset patrons for being informed they were out of two foods 30 minutes into sitting down. Antonio did give us a 8% discount which was appreciated. A simply heart felt apologies would of been more than enough.

    Food needs help. Fish was raw, had to send it back. Aperol spritz was watered down. Duck wings were over cooked and dry. Dog chicken didn’t come with rice and then after waiting 20 minutes they brought Spanish rice?! Flavor in everything was lacking and for the prices it wasn’t worth it. The variety in little Italy is abundant with delicious and better options. Sadly won’t be back.

    I usually love this restaurant, but this time around was very disappointing especially since my mom flew in from out of town and specifically requested to experience Little Italy. I thought this would be a great safe option, but they were out of half of the items on the menu and were out of most of their gluten free options. As my mom is gluten intolerant she had no choice but to order something she wasn’t excited for and totally missed out on the great pasta options. The service was meh. Seemed unwilling to be accommodating and like they wanted to get us in and out even though the restaurant was not busy. Very disappointing.

    Waited 1 1/2 hours for our food only for it to come out cold. Server didn’t even apologize. We asked multiple times to speak with the manager but the hostess and servers never sent one over. This was after waiting 10 minutes to have our server stop by our table. Will not be going back.

    Waitress was rude and not attentive at all; took fifteen minutes for us to get water from a serving assistant before the server came over and simply said “are you ready to order?”. My food was ok but nothing special (pappardelle bolognese), but my husband’s filet was essentially raw (ordered medium) and there were hard objects in his (very dry) mashed potatoes. Overall super disappointing, wouldn’t recommend.

    If you're going to eat at Italian restaurants such a this one please PLEASE order Italian dishes! steak dishes the most expensive thing on the menu!! and did not fulfill our expectations, the duck wings were over cooked it felt like we were eating pork cracklings, the oysters had a weird after taste, the pizza was so soggy, the owner (maybe) was yelling at an employee. we might not be coming back here, our bill was high like a high end restaurant and we were still hungry shortly after. cups were dirty the waiters was blah!

    We ordered the crab cake which was really good, but had pieces of shell. Then we got the artichokes which were very lemony and the sauce was broke. Our entrees were lobster mac and a salad add salmon. The lobster mac the cheese sauce, lobster and the pasta was perfect. Kept crunching on very small pieces of shell though which ruined it. The salad they added chicken instead of the salmon I ordered which was so tough and overcooked it was like jerky and I got maybe a few crumbs of the goat cheese that was supposed to be on the salad. Service was horrible. So unattentive. Our waiter wasnt even the one who brought out our food and didn't ask us once how our food was. Pretty much was ignored by the staff. Had to wave him down to ask why I got chicken instead of the salmon I ordered which was fixed thankfully and was nicely cooked. My husband and I are chefs from Phoenix and was visiting San Diego for the weekend. Definitely not a place we would come back to or recommend sadly

    We were really excited and looking forward to trying this restaurant since organic/farm to table is so important to us. Unfortunately, it was one of the worst dining experiences we’ve had in recent memory. It was a chilly and windy night and the first thing we noticed was it was freezing inside and actually breezy. Two windows were open and after shivering for a while, we asked if they could close them. Two waitresses pretty much blew us off. I finally asked the manager. He had an incredibly cocky vibe but finally did it. No sooner had they been closed, that same manager directed a couple of busboys to open 2 huge double doors on the opposite side and start hauling in the outside chairs to stack them. The cold wind immediately blew through the entire room. Even my hair was blowing. People around us were zipping up their jackets and hunching over. It was insane. I asked the guys if they could close the doors and after some pushback, they agreed but the manager came over and told them to do it anyway, knowing I’d just complained. We spent 90 minutes and $175 being totally miserable. The manager was arrogant and completely unconcerned with the comfort of the diners. Our waitress was sweet but green and clueless how to provide a lovely dining experience. She lacked every skill necessary. Salads and appetizers came together. Entree came before salads were even eaten. Never asked if we wanted dessert. Just brought the bill. First suggestion: dump that inept and self centered manager and hire someone who cares about the people he’s serving and can also provide the proper training for the wait staff. He’s worthless at both. The entire place felt chaotic and stressed. We had planned to try it the next morning for breakfast but decided to go to Parakeet instead. Smartest move we ever made.

    I decided I wanted to try something new for Mother's Day. I made a reservation ahead of time and requested inside seating. When we showed up they still asked if we wanted inside or outside; we sat outside and we weren't comfortable as the heaters weren't able to keep us warm since the wind was a little strong (not the restaurants fault). We requested to go inside (I hated asking as this drives me nuts) and they were able to seat us inside without an issue. The restaurant was rather loud even though they had open tables. My husband sat with an empty cup for over 10 minutes. The food was decent but over priced. I was also frustrated that we ordered dessert to go and ended up waiting 20 minutes for the waitress to bring it to us. We had to ask if we could get our dessert and her response was "Oh! I forgot you were waiting on that." If the restaurant had been full I would have been much more lenient on this review; however when we left there were several tables (inside and out) that were empty. I don't think we will go back.

    Waiter *a mess*. Which happens sometimes. But also food was just ok. (2 apps , 2 pizzas, 1 pasta, 1 salad, many drinks.) Just not the experience I hoped for while taking visiting friends out to dinner.
