WAKE UP San Diego! Establishment of this pizzeria here in San Diego is truly an unprecedented, historic event. Pizza, as we know it today, was created in the city of Naples, Italy roughly around early 1800s. Hence, we get the name "pizza napoletana". Since 1800s until now, "Pizzeria Bruno Napoletano" has been the first--I mean the very first--authentic napoletan pizzeria ever established here in San Diego. I tasted their pizzas last night and the night before (and I will be there tonight); they are absolutely fantastic. The fresh ingredients (many of which are imported from Naples, Italy) are captivating to the taste-buds. Not to mention their custom-made wood-fired oven which was crafted out of volcanic rocks in Italy. Forget about Pizza Hut, Domino Pizza, Papa John's, and etc: these are not pizzas--these are "fraud"! You "cannot" compare and evaluate napoletan pizza by employing the same criteria you use to evaluate American pizzas. So, I recommend that you educate yourself a bit about the napoletan pizza. There are many websites out there. There is so much history, legend, mythology, and culture behind this kind of pizza that if you care to educate yourself about them, they will enrich your experience of truly enjoying napoletan pizza. The Maestro Peter who will bake your pizza to perfection at Bruno is a very passionate man, and "PASSION" is the most important ingredient in making napoletan pizza! I sincerely convey my profoundest gratitude to Maestro Peter who has brought Naples to San Diego for the first time in over two centuries. If you do not try this place, you will only have yourself to blame! Be part of the history.

Cafe One Three confuses me, on one hand you have the amazing cafe christo which is an artisan take on the monte cristo, and the potato pancake smothered in creme fraise, salmon carpaccio and cavier, and then...on the other hand....the two egg breakfast. overcooked eggs and potatos which lets be honest, hail from a bag at the frozen food aisle at costco. We saw the bag....

The kitchen just hasn't pulled it together yet. Even the potato cake was a mess...the flavors are good, but it was delivered to the table as a heaping pile of mush.

I want to like this place because the service is awesome, the atmosphere is great and the menu has a lot of potential but the reality is that I would not yet reccomend this place to anyone I liked.
