The food is very good, and the portions are huge. We can only eat half and take the other half home for tomorrow.

The place is OK, the tables are not very comfortable, uneven and mismatched. The food was OK, the waitress was a hot mess. She got our order wrong, and left us sitting for serval long stretches. At one point she actually sat a large group at a four top next to us, telling them the occupied table next to them... More

Family owned for generations. Always great, no inconsistencies. Happy Hour food and prices are incredible. TVs, good drinks with a good pour, friendly staff, lots of nice locals. Not a place to get rowdy, don't ruin the cool neighborhood vibe and become a regular instead!

Okay, it is not the best Italian I have ever had, but it is convenient to my work and home and it is very good for my liking. The atmosphere is friendly and they offer happy hour in the bar.

This neighborhood pizza place had been around since 1970. I grew up nearby and when I come back to San Diego to visit, our local family meets up with us at Sardinia's for sausage, black olive and pepperoni pizza. Lots of locals get beers after work there, and there are sports on the TVs. The pizza is delicious every time.

Very nice Italian place in a residential part of San Diego, away from the tourists. Many locals here, which usually means a decent meal. Active bar with plenty of options. Food was very good, and extremely generous portions. The red Sangria was particularly good. Would go back again for sure!

We wanted a good pizza with a reasonable bottle of wine. Little Italy can be very expensive not to mention finding a parking spot. As we stay in Old Town because of it's convenience to downtown and freeways we don't like to trek too far from our hotel at night. Sardina's can be easily gotten to from Old Town without... More

For the most part I am not blown away by anything other than their pizza. I have had their regular and gluten free and both are outstanding. Its a whole in the wall kind of place (nothing special to look at) but for the most part the service is good and the pizza is great. I highly recommend it.

My extended family attended a wedding in San Diego of my son with a local girl. We stayed on Hotel Circle and stumbled upon this place by accident. What a lucky fine. Excellent food with huge portions that are moderately priced. The only drawback was limited parking. This place is definitely where the locals went and I now know why.
