Sorry, but I disagree with the previous two reviews. Maybe they just had one of those bad moments. I don't know, but our experience was excellent. The Salad and home made suops was delicious, the lettuce, particularily the raddichio, was

Caesar Salad was the worst ever, lettuce limp, soft, mushy, brown and looked like it was left over from the night before. Plus the shrimp was like leather/rubber. We did not even eat the salad after two bites. . Carpachio was a 6 out of

This is a very busy restaurant. Ambiance is good, and the Italian food is fresh and delicious. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who loves Italian food.

My most recent experience there was last week. My cousin and I arrived around 8 pm, and the place was hopping, not even a space open outside. We were going to leave and find another restaurant, and the hostess came out and said that there were two placed at the bar. Of course, we went back in.

It was a bit noisy, but considering where we were seated, I was not surprised. This was my second visit to this restaurant in a week, and the first visit was quieter, but I was there earlier, around 6 pm, and sat in the restaurant area.

Portions are very large, staff is friendly and quick.

One of my favorite Italian places in Little Italy. They have some great dishes and desserts, and their wine selection is pretty great, too. They have the best bread, too. I can go here and leave fully satisfied.

My only negative with them is that the place can easily get overcrowded, and you will be sitting next to someone just inches from you. But, the place is friendly, the staff is awesome, and if you have to wait, they send you next door to their sister place so you can have some drinks.

I am not even an Italian fan but this is GOOD food! Very interesting take on Italian...not your typical meat sauce and noodles. Very authentic and inventive food. And DELICIOUS! Highly reccomend it! Great atmosphere too...although, not your cup of tea if you mind being cozy with those around you!

One of the best Italian Restaurants in San Diego, i go at least once a week! I love the fact that they have take-out as well. The owner also owns Arriverdercci in Hillcrest and Trattoria I Trulli in Encinitas. Both are just as great!!

I am an Italian citizen and know Italian food. All I can say is that I have never had such good Italian food in the States before - it was authentic and simply delicious. Service was excellent too - cordial and fast. I strongly

From owners Antonino Mastellone and the Caniglias (Daniela and Salvatore) of Trattoria I Trulli in Encinitas and Arrivederci in Hillcrest comes Buon Appetito. This cozy spot in Little Italy combines the best of both restaurants, but goes…
