Fodor's Review

Two guys who grew up in Italy founded this cozy La Jolla Shores eatery a decade ago to bring authentic Italian food to residents and visitors of the walkable neighborhood and its nearby beaches. Italian opera plays in the dining room where friendly servers deliver house-made breads, pastas, and sauces. Pasta choices include pappardelle with braised lamb and wild mushrooms and bucatini sauced with baby octopus, capers, and olives. Pork osso buco in port wine sauce is a popular main course that can be enjoyed alfresco on warm summer nights on the dog-friendly sidewalk patio. On Tuesday, wines from the Italian-centric list are half-price.
