Food was good.. service not so much.. kitchen was behind and not supporting front of the house. 7:00. And just eating at 9.. not so much. Figure it out. Turn the tables. Needs improvement.

Excellent service, waitress was knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu and delivered the food with a genuine sense of hospitality. The food was great. And the wine was superb!

If you've spent any time in San Diego's gaslamp quarter, you probably know that there are an abundance of Italian eateries. Although I've not tried them all, I have certainly sampled the food from at least a dozen of the downtown Italian staples (I'm fond of pasta and red wine). On a recommendation, I recently visited Osteria Panevino with a... More

My husband and I went there on a Sunday night. We started with Caprese. It was the best I have every had, including what I had in Italy. The presentation was also amazing. I ordered Veal Parmesan and my husband got a risotto. He's quite a risotto snob and he clearly said it was the best he ever had. We... More

My visit was an impromptu, just a snack visit however once there I ordered several entrees and thoroughly enjoyed them all, the food was fresh and the flavour combinations excellent, one of the dishes I ordered was the "Poke Trio" comprised of salmon, tuna, scallop meat, being raw you can definitely tell the quality of the freshness, I highly recommend...

Selected this place since it was full and usually it means good food. Typical Italian restaurant with busy service and noisy. Typical Italian menu thus we had Lasagne and Tiramisu. Both were ok but have to say that I have had better ones elsewhere. Relaxed atmosphere.

Came her for my birthday and am still dreaming about it. I want to go back! The food was a bit pricey but it was a good treat. Got a salad and some wine. Even the experience inside was excellent. 5 stars to everybody who made my birthday the best. Thank you!!!

The most attentive staff my wife and I had and we dined out 8 times while on vacation. The prices were competitive and the food was really excellent! The lobster ravioli was fantastic and the bone in rib eye with a mushroom glaze was cooked perfectly and bursting with flavor. We had a great time with Samir who was the... More

Must try this Italian family owned restaurant. You can not go wrong! Our meal included the bruschetta, Cesear salad, pesto ravioli and finished off with the fabulous tiramisu! Sit outside if weather permits.
