“Fantastic Food, Beautiful Restaurant”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

This place is heavenly. From the charming street front hostess to our waiter and table-hopping chef, everything was wonderful, especially the food. Unctious sauces, perfectly grilled veal, soup, salad, warm bread and al dente pastas cooked to order made me think I was in Italy. The atmosphere is "kitschy", but just right for this food and service. I will definitely return next time I am in San Diego.

“No flavor worst attempt at Italian food”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

We read the reviews and decided to try for dinner tonight. Service was great but food was bland and a poor attempt at Italian cuisine. Bruschetta appetizer presented with unripened tomatoes very little seasoning, chicken parmagian absolutely needed a steak knife to saw through, marinara sauce flavor worse than chef boy ardee. Cream sauce for another chicken dish was diluted with little flavor. Owner was at front desk yelling at staff to move a high chair creating a tense work environment, not favorable to diners. Decor very cheaply done.

“La Terrazza”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

We stopped in for lunch on a day out in Coronado. We had a table out on the terrace. Service was very good and the food delicious! Lovely! What more can you say. Would definitely go back again or recommend it!

“Great local restuarant”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

My wife loved the food. The service was great and the setting was romantic and relaxing. Pasta was great, the wine list very broad. Very very nice. I will go again.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 28 December 2012 via mobile

The food was amazing and the service was just as good. We had to wait for a few minutes, because it was a Friday night, and the managers checked on us and apologized that we had to wait. All I can about the food was that it was excellent. I would come back here in a minute.
