Have eaten here several times each year for over a decade. Linda gives it the real Italian touch. Server's friendly. Food consistently good especially veal and salmon. Closest spot to real Italy in the San Diego area.

Lobster bisque tasted like costco tomato bisque with cream added. There was a shrimp as the centerpiece. Owner walked around and we asked about it providing constructive criticism, but she laughed it off mentioning the price of real lobster. We laughed about never coming back.
