Fodor's Review

The name means "Romantic Inn," and with a sunny location a few blocks from the beach in La Jolla Shores, the look suggests a trattoria in Italy. The kitchen's wonderfully light hand shows up in the tomato sauce that finishes the scampi and other dishes, and in the pleasing Romantica salad garnished with figs and walnuts. Savory pasta choices include lobster-filled mezzelune (half moons) in saffron sauce, and wonderfully rich spaghetti alla carbonara. The

breaded veal cutlets crowned with chopped arugula and tomatoes are a popular main course. The warm, informal service suits the neighborhood.
