Will be spending a week in Carlsbad. Looking for good Seafood and Italian restaurants in Carlsbad or Del Mar
This is the time of year in SOCal when food tastes best when consumed outdoors preferably at a restaurant with a view. Two places in Del Mar come to mind, Il Fornaio (good lasagne)and Pacifica Del Mar (good fish dishes). Pacifica Del Mar has a cafe downstairs (Pacifica Breeze?)that is a popular lunch spot.
I too like Vigilucci's pizza and Piatti's in La Jolla.
There's a place just up the coast from Del Mar (can't remember the name of the town - Cardiff?), called the Beach House (I think). The outdoor seating is right on the rocks, so they have to close it when there's a high tide, but there's still a nice view from inside. Since I go out to Del Mar (from the East Coast) for the Handicap every year, I make it a point not to miss this place. Also, good fish.
