I went there based on good reports but for a Italian from the east coast, there food was not close to being authentic.
I had a $13 lasagna which was all noodle and a microscopic amount of cheese.
Tasted like cafeteria food with no flavor.
I don't think the original owners are still there.

My opinion
Thanks Larry

    The few times I went were very disappointing, terrible and abrupt service, microscopic food with the same equiviilent of flavor. Lastly, very pricey.

      Thirded. I went once a couple years ago after reading rave reviews about it on here but was very disappointed. Food was very bland, marinara sauce tasted like plain tomato sauce out of a jar.

      Still haven't found any decent italian food in San Diego. Been meaning to check out some of the places in Hillcrest but haven't gotten around to it yet.

      Are you talking about Mamma Mia in PB - the original owners (Mezzettis) are still there and we haven't been for 1-2 years but we gave up after a few very underwhelming visits.
