Best tirimisu I've ever had! Service was great. Wine was delish! All our apps and entrees were so yummy and served hot...this was my second time and I'll definitely be back soon:-)
Love the owners and staff
Absolutely phenomenal. Please open up in Los Angeles! The pasta was so fresh and delicious.
Don't get a table for 3. If you have 3, just get a table for 4. The 3 of us were sat at a square table for 2 - totally not cramped for 3. Otherwise, it was very nice, expensive but good.
Coming from Europe, I find that too often what is called an "Italian" restaurant is actually New York or Chicago's idea of Italian - which is great, but is its own thing. It was lovely therefore to find this place that actually feels Italian - right down to the hosts, who are actually Italian (not Italian-American, or someone who watched The Godfather too many times and THINKS they are Italian... ;) ) - Fabulous fresh pasta made in the room you eat, unpretentious fun atmosphere, really nice new addition to San Diego's food scene.
Food was delicious! Note, you have to request a table outside if you want to sit on the patio.
Great food. Mgmt/Wait staff very engaging. Noise level indoors is due to intentionally loud music level. Too bad, would make it overall a 10!
Our favorite new spot. Food is amazing and service matched. Thanks Giuseppe!
We enjoyed it. The food and service was excellent.
2nd time here. Sat on the patio this time. Enjoyed it even more than the first time. Great food, drink, and service. Dont miss the desserts!
Incredible authentic Italian food in a high energy atmosphere. Took my son and daughter-in-law from LA to dinner and they were incredibly impressed ( very hard to do!). The waiter was fabulous and all of the Italian accents completes the experience. The food is amazing and watching fresh pasta being made was an added bonus.
AMAZING!!! We keep coming back. The lasagna is the BEST!!!!!
Pasta dishes with your choice of pastas, sauces and toppings made for a very difficult decision as they all sounded so good. We dined on the patio, had amazing service, incredible food and I can't think off anything I would of wanted different. Totally would recommend this restaurant to couples, families and friends, it's casual, valet parking next door and uber/lyft drop off right in front. The patio is the perfect place to sit in our summer weather.
2nd time there in one week so we like it a lot.
Everything about this place is outstanding. The service is friendly even when they are super busy. The food is spectacular always. It’s an absolute gem!
A fabulous new gem in the Point Loma area serving some of the best Italian food you'll find anywhere in the city! Patio or indoor seating. Serving both lunch and dinner. You know that when you hear Italian being spoken in an Italian restaurant the food is going to be good. It goes beyond good at Cesarina. Delicious bread is immediately brought to the table. Peroni beer and a good selection of Italian wines - the Chiani Classico Reserva was wonderful. I opted for the lasagna - almost a four inch stack with a wonderful red gravy.
What a great restaurant! Fresh pasta, sauces are just wonderful..must try it
The most delicious food, full of flavor and lots of love! Always the best time at Cesarina (:
The food was excellent. The service was great. It was an outstanding dining experience.
Cesarina was a great experience overall! My boyfriend and I came here on a date for his birthday. The service was great, my wine and water were never empty. The pasta was fresh and delicious and the tiramisu was the best I’ve ever had! The prices were definitely reasonable for the quality of the food and experience. I will definitely be returning!
Best pasta ever according to our whole party. Best meal of our trip!
It was fabulous will definitely go back
This is best Italian food I’ve had since visiting Tuscany and the tableside tiramisu was the best I’ve ever had. The staff was amazingly attentive. I’ll be back!
I'm new to San Diego, a friend referred me to Cesarina, and I'm so glad he did. This was such a lovely experience... the service perfection, the food fresh and delicious, and the ambiance so lovely. I took my family there to celebrate a special occasion. I haven't been to Italy yet, but this felt like the authentic experience to me. I'm so glad we went, will definitely go back soon.
They made a slight error when they seated us, and provided complimentary glasses of Prosecco to make up for it. Service was very attentive. The fettuccine Alfredo with guanciale was the best pasta we’ve had outside of Italy.
Delicious homemade Italian food. Great wine selection.
Fantastic meal and great ambiance! Excited to come back and try more of their pastas.
First time here and favorably impressed. Linguini with Mushroom sauce was delicious; pappardelle bolgonese was also excellent. Service was prompt. I love the dishes. The only downside was noise but it's on a fairly busy street and directly under the flight path so not unexpected. The pasta made up for it!
Wonderful assortment of freshly made pasta with a big selection of house made sauces. We shared 2 appetizers....the squash blossoms were the best! Our order was lasagna...just what you hope the dish to be. Big flavor, those fresh noodles and the cheese...over the top and I can't believe I ate the whole thing. The short rib dish is great too. Spinach noodles done to perfection with a unique take on the flavor of the short rib meat/sauce. Beautiful and tasty. Our final entree was the evenings special spaghetti with one of the sauces...the spelling may be wrong but something amantica....good but the least favored at our table. We ended with the tiramisu....love the presentation but mine is better. Not to worry, I will try one or two of the other desserts next time. Overall, a wonderful night out with a special friend.
Really enjoyed the food! But I thought our server was to pushy. We tipped so we can come back. We also thought it was dog friendly for food and nobody warned us that they don’t serve food to dogs which was annoying because we wanted to eat there for the experience of eating with our dog.
We love this neighborhood Italian restaurant! The food and service is outstanding!
Wonderful food and service.
Fantastic!!! The food was unreal. My new favorite Italian restaurant 🇮🇹
Really good food with good size servings and excellent service. I plan to bring a group for an upcoming birthday party at lunch time.
Food and service was great!!
Made a reservation to be safe.
Food is very good. Staff could have been a little more friendly, but the service was good. It’s rather pricey though.
Very good authentic Italian food. The deserts are also excellent.
Delicious hand made pastas. Fabulous tiramisu made right at your table by the chef.
Amazing food. Fresh innovative and home style feel. Awesome service.
