I was surprised by the menu (it was very small), but the food was very good. The sauce wasn't the best I've had, but it tasted great. The service was spot on. I had the Valdostana di Vitello.

Went with a group of girlfriends. It appeared than the waiter was not well versed in Italian wines. We asked a few questions about the Italian wines (only a couple reds were offered) but the server didn't seem to know. I ordered the veal piccata...More

So glad we walked past all the Mexican restaurants with long lines to eat at Jack & Giulio's. Comfortable seating. Classical music. Amazing pasta. Reasonable prices (I had lasagna for $17).

good food and they even specially cooked potato for my husband as he does not like pasta!! The most delicious Bruschetta and their signature veal dish is a must. No room for dessert. Friendly efficient staff, need to book.

Inside of restaurant was busy, but no line-up. Outside seating area was mostly emty. We were seated quite quickly, but then ignored for at least 10 minutes. Meals came fairly quick after order was taken. Tortollini was quite good, but a very strong flavour. Breaded...More

I wanted to take a break from Mexican cuisine while visiting San Diego and happened upon Jack & Giulio's very close to my hotel. The flavors and quality of the food was excellent especially in light of what I felt to be moderate pricing. I...More

We have been here twice. The first time it was really good, so we decided to go back for Valentine's Day. We were lucky because we got there before 5:30pm when the reservations started and we didn't have one and they were booked up. We...More
