My favorite Italian place in the world. OK, that may sound a little heavy, but let me explain. It's family owned and run. It's been there forever and everybody that I've ever taken there has become a regular. I moved to San Francisco and lived there for 5 years in North Beach (sort of SF's 'Little Italy') and I have a lot of great meals in the neighborhood, but I've always gone back to Mama Nunzio's place in Point Loma, and always have been greeted with a hug and a great meal. It's my favorite still!

The food is WONDERFUL!! It is homemade by the owner. My husand and I have tried Italian all over and no one compares. Is the service a little slow - yes. It is worth the wait - ABSOLUTELY!
The Scampi Pesto and Chicken and Shrimp Bechamel are to die for. The manicotti is a masterpiece. It may not look like much from the outside but you do want to go inside for the BEST ITALIAN you will ever have in San Diego or possibly anywhere else!

I went there with my boyfriend on one of are first dates. It was a friday or saturday night and very buisy. I had been there one other time with my mother for lunch and enjoyed the food. So I thought it was a good sugestion to go back. First, the waitress took forever to notice us even though we were sitting in front middle of the restraunt. Finally she takes our order. I clearly ask for a glass of red wine, cheese ravioli and a salad with ranch dressing. Then my boyfriend ordered a coke, lasagne and salad with italian dressing. So afterwards we relax and wait for our food while watching the guitarist and singer entertain us. The waitress brings us some tomatoes with mozerella cheese and basil. I thought it was complimentry with our dinner or to apoligize for the long wait. Never did it cross my mind we would be charged for it. So literally 45 minutes later our salads arrive and then our dinner. Don't get me wrong the food was good. Then we recieved the check which amounted to 65.00 not including the tip. I was dumbfounded, how could it be this high? Well they charged us about 12.00 for their lousy tomatoes, cheese and basil appetizer, which was not what we ordered. Then when I mentioned it to the waiter. She simply brought out the owner/manager to come talk to us. She is an older women probably in her late seventies. I tried to explain to her about the bill over loud music and chatter. She used this noise to her advantage to pretend not to understand me. Plus she uses her thick italian accent to also pretend like she doesn't understand english. She tried to point at the check and mubble some words as if she had no idea what I was talking about. At that point my boyfriend was over it and said don't worry about it and payed. It had me fumming! don't be swindled by people, make sure you get what your paying for

This Italian Restaurant had amazing food, with creamy pasta sauces and a pesto they claim is like no other.
However, when I went in, there were two or three other tables full, and everything from menus to water to ordering to actually eating all took quite the while. Our waiter was eccentric, but seemed either forgetful or a little too caffeinated. This is a great choice for some good food; perhaps you should try them to-go and try it at home?

I am a big lover of Italian food and this restaurant has gone beyond all expectations. I am a big fan of spaghetti and the variety that they had amazed me. The pricing fits the quality of the food very well and I do not feel that I am getting ripped off at all. My friends and I go there many times with each other or with dates. The decor is quite interesting but does not fit my particular tastes. The customer service is of high quality and the people that work there are very knowledgable and extremely friendly.
