Sadly for those of you that didn't know Kip's Cafe closed it’s doors on November 2008 (the food is very much missed). I am happy to announce that Kip's will re-open it’s doors in Hillcrest sometime this month (or so I've heard) I have personally visited the location and yes indeed it is our beloved Kip's Cafe, I have also received photos of the newly remodel Kip's and your in for a treat! I do have to say that there is not much street parking but there is a parking lot across the street where you can prepay to enjoy delicious Chinese and Japanese Cuisine.
I am originally from New York City, and hard to please about Italian food. I have been eating the food from Italia Pizza for over 20 years and have yet to find any other place that can match it, bar none. They deliver, but you can also eat there. Nothing fancy as far as atmosphere goes, but the food will kill you. Absolutely superb, and always the same. Their pizzas are incredible, their lasagna fantastic, but what I really love is their meatball and cheese sandwich. It is a masterpiece. Best Italian food in town. I guarantee it!
Merchiaro's is my favorite Italian restaurant in San Diego. The food is excellent and consistantly fresh. The egg plant, chicken and veal parmesan is really good !!! Pizza's are amazing. The waitresses are always smiling and very attentive. There's a nice size banquet room for birthday, bridal and baby showers. they cater off site as well. To sum it up, It's the BEST comfort food in all of San Diego, and definatly driving out of your way for.
