Taste of Italy
1730 E Palomar St, Chula Vista, CA 91913
Having spent my birthday here with my family, I found this to be one of the best. It has quaint old world charm, with a bit of nuance, as is refected in the wonderful sushi bar that some of the familia tried. I opted for the fillet, a perfect choice, excellent, and favorful as were the numerous appetizers we tried .If you are not hungry enough for a meal try the appetizers, and a drink. The drinks are blended to perfection, The best martini,s I,ve had, try the rasberry, a palate,s delight . The staff was cordial, and welcoming. This is definitely a must do. Diane Boles
The ever present earth tones, accentuate wonderful "Pacific motif" foods and the outside fountains , seem to match the interior color schemes in an all too appropriate setting of beautiful Spanish/Italian ambiance. Adding to the visuals, the sight of the well placed lighting around the "L" shaped lounge at the rear and a small , yet cozy sushi bar nearby, make this a truly memorable and classy experience for a place of honorable mention and future visits not to be regretted.
Small hand made clay pots are laid at every table, adding even more art to convenience of condiments, yet never being over-done. The cuisine itself seems to dwarf the already impressive surroundings, as the aroma of subtle perfection , waft over you from adjacent tables and the efficient waitstaff, that is politely ever-present, as they deliver the gourmet platters.
Obviously I am enamored with this establishment and can't wait to visit again.
