Quantcast

Old Venice

A restaurant with decades of local history, with a beautiful brick patio out back. The great thing about the soup is the big garlicky swatch of bread that comes with it. And then the Gorgonzola salad is big, fresh, generous. They drop a big snake pit of caramelized grilled onions on top, plus big chunks of gorgonzola cheese, roasted red potatoes, and walnuts, also caramelized.

    It was the newly-wedded couple's favorite place. Our evening started with our wedding party of ten being seated 40 minutes after our reservation time. We had to ask for the customary baskets of bread for the table. The server refilled water glasses and didn't return them to the same position, causing several to wonder who's glass belonged to who. The evening finished by having to ask for the manager just to get our un-attentive server to bring us our bills. In between these experiences, my Pasta with Olive Oil & Garlic was mostly oil. But the thing that ticked me off the most was that the grains of pepper were too big to come out of the pepper shaker. But the bread was great!

    One of my favorites in Point Loma! I've been coming here for almost 20 years for my birthday! Charming! Romantic! and Great Food! A wonderful place to frequent and amazing for special occasions! Especially the many weddings I've attended! A definite must in San Diego!
