italian dinner in San Diego/La Jolla

I am going to SD tomorrow. Any recommendations for Italian dinner? Thank you for your assistance.

  1. Trattoria Acqua in La Jolla or Baci's in the Bay Park/Morena district...both are excellent.
    Arrivederci's in Hillcrest is also quite good.

      Just had lunch today at Arrivederci on friend's suggestion, pretty good!

    2. Po Pazzo in Little Italy is excellent. We also had a very nice, reasonable dinner last Saturday at Buon Appetito, also in Little Italy.

      1. Buon Appetito or Arrivederci in hillcrest.

        Bar, atmosphere, service are great at Po Pazzo, food is not anything great, and expensive.

        1. Piatti and Barolo in La Jolla/UTC

          1. I agree with Baci--finest Italian restaurant in all of San Diego. Not a fan of Little Italy and would rather steer you to Salvatore's, near Horton Plaza. In La Jolla, good Italian restaurant with nice ambience would be Pasquales

              I try to like Baci for basic Italian comfort food, but I can't understand the high prices, I mean com'on $25 for a basic chic lemon dish, $12. salads.
