I liked the location and the decor of the restuarant but I thought the food was just ok. The margarita was tasty and the rice and beans were probably the best but the main dish was average at best and the service was pretty slow.

This was located in Old Town in. San Diego, and relocated to Carlsbad.
This place is clean and serves quality food. The price is reasonable. The drinks are good and it is a family place.

If you like big Mexican chain restaurants then this is the place for you!! Average food, oversized portions, and over priced.

I hadn't been to Casa Bandini since it was in Old Town. Visiting a friend she suggested we go there which was great! The location is very nice, when walking into the establishment I found it to be very festive & crowded which is always a good sign. We both enjoyed our meals. I had Cheese Enchiladas with rice and beans and she had a bean tostada. All in all we enjoyed our evening and I would return. The ambiance was nice, a little loud if you want to visit but definitely worth going to.

We visited for lunch and pleased with the food and service. The guacamole was excellent as was my tostada with asada. My wife also was very pleased with her enchiladas. Try the 32 oz margarita (we shared it) but were glad not to drive after finishing it.
