The pizza isn't the best but the combo meal of lasagna and ravioli for about $12 I think it was, was great and super affordable compared to restaurants nearby. The serving sizes where very quite big (but not ridiculously big). Defiantly coming by again for the lasagna! I went during busy dinner hours but the food still came very quickly.

Despite the decent Italian-inspired ambience this restaurant doesn't know how to make a good pizza. We've eaten excellent pizza in Florence, NYC, and many other places and know quality when we taste it. The pizza at this place was doughy, hard to chew, and not well constructed. The cheese was ok, but that was the best part. Forgettable sauce and... More

This place is too cool, I grew up in Chicago, this place brought back memories. You want Italian, you have to try this place, yet you have to eat here. You actually walk through their Market in the front to the back to the restaurants. You want real authentic Italian food, you need to eat here. I also had a... More

This was the most perfect place for lunch after a long morning of traveling! The food was delivered fast and there was so much we had leftovers. The "small" salad is really large enough for two to split. The pizza stole the show however, it was so delicious! It's tempting to stop at one of the other pizza restaurants on... More

Great Italian Food, Great Old World Italian Atmosphere, Fair Prices. Everyone mentions the pizza but we tried the lasagna. Pizza seemed very expensive in price. Free off street parking in their own lot.

We waited over an hour in line after our concierge's recommendation and while the food was above average, had to question the wait. The Pizza's were very good and my wife really enjoyed the Pasta. They are not individual size Pizza's so we over ordered but it was great leftovers in the hotel mini fridge. Had breakfast and snacked for... More

We stopped in on our way out of San Diego. This is a busy italian restaurant with plenty of great food. The service is very good. Lots of TVs to allow watching football games.
