By the name you wouldn't think that this place was a seafood restaurant, but it is. And boy is it great! In the middle of Downtown who would guess that they would have such great seafood. Their lobster is wonderful!

I was downtown with a friend one evening and we decided to stop by this restaurant. I was a bit skeptical at first but the staff was so nice! Our waiter helped me pick out what I wanted and it was so delicious! The Linguine Pescatore was amazing! The price is also very decent, not too expensive! I highly recommend this place and will definitely come back!

This place was so cool - like going back in time! There were all these pictures of people who had been there - it was amazing just looking at all of them. The food was excellent too (if you like that sort of thing). :)

My girlfriend took me there for Valentine's Day and they have the best food by far. I can't really describe the place but I think if you want to get a good feel as to what this place is just take a look at their video at Videonary.com. Just go to Videonary.com and search for De Medici or copy and paste this link: http://www.videonary.com/videonary/merchant/getMerchantDetails.html?searchField=de+medici&page=1&merchantType=&foodType=®ion=

PROS: Great Service

My husband and I have been to de Medici's several times, each time better than the last. Everything is freshly prepared, the wine list is superb, the staff is amazing.
I read a review that said everything to the contrary of what I experienced, but I'd like to state that they DO NOT use bottled caesar salad dressing, that the food is exceptionally prepared, and as far as authenticity, the food is as good as anything I've eaten in Rome, Venice or Florence.
The ambience is exceptional, as well.
For a wonderful eating experience, try the Steak Dianne. It's remarkable.
I'd recommend it to anyone that appreciates fine dining and beautiful surroundings.

De Medici is a very romantic and ambiance rich restaurant. The service is good and the price is not too expensive. but the food is sub-par. If you are going to adopt the name De Medici then you had better step to the plate in quality and authenticity. If you remember from Art History, De Medici was a very rich family that financed the Italian Renissance. They are responsible for many great sculptures and art work. However the restaurant is only good for looks, not substance. The food is far from authentic. The Alfredo sauce is made with SOUR CREAM. The chicken and Cappers is made with bottled lemon juice. The cesear dressing is made from kraft, mine was not made table side. Maybe i have more offence with them taking the name De Medici when the restaurant is all hype. Their food is more southern Californian Italian than historic Italian. Over all if you are looking to impress your date: great place.

The service is the best in San Diego.
The sea food is always fresh and prepered anyway you want. Ceasar Salad prepared from scratch tableside. The best Alfedo Sauce anywhere. Veal Chops & Osso Buca unbealviable. Crystal wine glasses. Flaming Bannas Foster for desert. It dosen't get any better. We are locals, along with many others who are there on a regular basis.

One of a handful of relatively formal restaurants in the Gaslamp Quarter, de'Medici is a haven for conventioneers and well-heeled locals who appreciate homemade food from authentic old-country recipes, passed from generation to generation.…
