“Joe's prices are hard to beat and the food is good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

The Buslacchi family owns numerous restaurants in San Diego. Most of them are in Little Italy, but their original eatery on fifth avenue remains my favorite.The prices are very reasonable, and the food is very good.For early birds happy hour prices for appetizers apply every day, Can you find another restaurant in San Diego, where the diner can buy a plate of calamari for $6.00 on a Saturday night? Valet parking is available for $7.00.

“Great Italian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

The food is always fresh and absolutely flavorful! Everything is good...but I really enjoyed the carpaccio. The pasta sauce was so good and the bread was excellent.
They have great happy hour specials. Good wines.
Plus, you get nice friendly service!!
Sit outside on the patio and you will not be disappointed.

“Good food and ambiance!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

I came here for Restaurant Week a few months ago with a friend. They have a dog friendly patio which is great! I got the carpaccio which was really good! Then I opted for the butternut squash ravioli which was good as well. They don't give you a lot and it had a sweetness to it which is different from the other ravioli i've tried. All in all, I had a good experience here and I'll be back!
