Success! Thanks for posting your review of Buon Appetito. You’ve done the world some good today.


This seems like the best Italian place in Little Italy based on my research online and also recommended by hotel employees. Place gets really crowded but it's worth the wait. Love their pasta!

Tough Critic
Enjoyed lunch very much

Sorry, but I disagree with the previous two reviews. Maybe they just had one of those bad moments. I don't know, but our experience was excellent. The Salad and home made suops was delicious, the lettuce, particularily the raddichio, was very fresh, and the dressing tasty. My duck ragu pasta was plentiful and of very good quality.

buon appetito

Caesar Salad was the worst ever, lettuce limp, soft, mushy, brown and looked like it was left over from the night before. Plus the shrimp was like leather/rubber. We did not even eat the salad after two bites. . Carpachio was a 6 out of 10. We would not go back again. Not sure how you can ruin a plain Casear Salad, but they seemed to do it. We were there when they opened at 11:00 AM. Waiters Italian accent was fake.

Are we living in the 60's?

Best Italian Food Ever

This is hands down the best italian food I've ever had in my life. We live in Riverside and whenever we visit San Diego, we make sure to eat here.

One of the best Italian Restaurants in San Diego, i go at least once a week! I love the fact that they have take-out as well. The owner also owns Arriverdercci in Hillcrest and Trattoria I Trulli in Encinitas. Both are just as great!! Love the egg plant appetizer and pizza'a at Arriverdercci!

I'll drive from LA to eat there!!

I am an Italian citizen and know Italian food. All I can say is that I have never had such good Italian food in the States before - it was authentic and simply delicious. Service was excellent too - cordial and fast. I strongly recommend it!
