“Commercial Italian food but way overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Great Location overlooking Prospect from the 2nd floor patio.The service was quite good but the prices for the pasta are unaccettable.You are looking to spend 40$ for a seafood pasta (with tax and tips) and it's dry pasta pre cooked that you can find anywhere.Ingridients are not fresh but all frozen.The atmosphere and the friendliness of the manager almost made up for the ripp-off.

“Terrace with view on the city, Italy style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

Really loved their outdoor terrace. HUGE menu with lots of options; I had a seafood style stew, DH had a spaghetti carbonara. Fantastic staff and a great bottle of Chianti recommended by the manager. Definitely recommend. Prices also very reasonable for la Jolla.
