Delicious food and personable service. A real gem of a restaurant.
This place was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! Firstly, their service is impeccable. The owner goes around to each table to ensure people are happy and loving their food. All the staff is nice, on brand, Italian and really knowledgeable about the menu. Finally, the food is AMAZING! We got the rigatoni with pomodorro and bucatini with pesto and both were two of the best meals I’ve ever had. Coupled with incredible wine. And such sweet staff. It was an amazing night.
Wonderful addition to our neighborhood. Wish I could go every night
Amazing food and service!
We had a very engaging server who was helpful and fast. My friends have some dietary restrictions and were so impressed with the vegan / gluten free options on the menu.
Lunch is a fabulous time to dine here. Same great food you'll get at dinner - only fewer people, less noise, slower pace. Four of us went to celebrate a birthday - and as we were preparing to depart, the Birthday Girl was surprised with a tableside presentation of Cesarina's already famous tirimisu - with four spoons, of course. Perfect!
This restaurant serves real food. No short cuts, no cheap ingredients. Great service, beautiful presentation. All meals, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner, are well done and delicious.
Very small portion sizes for the price is my main complaint . Otherwise, good ambiance and service. Made reservations and were seated exactly on time.
A dear friend recommended the restaurant, so I made a reservation for my husband and I and it was absolutely fantastic. We sat on the patio which was very charming and cozy. From the moment we arrived the staff were very welcoming and attentive. Our meal from the anti-pasti to dessert (must try the Tiramisu) was amazing. If you're in the mood for great Italian then this is the place. Buon appetito!
AMAZING. Great service and really delicious food. Everything made from scratch. Already planning our next time back, seriously good.
It is always great
We went for lunch. The place was not crowded and food was great. Tiramisu was delicious and the server put it together in front of us which was fun. My only feedback is that this place did not have any non-alcoholic cocktails or drinks. It would help to get some added on the drink list.
Yummy. Great selection of pasta and good choir to sing for supper
My spaghetti carbonara was very salty and expensive. Server was great
Lovely to celebrate a birthday.
Service was excellent and the food was amazing! The quality was well worth the price. The inside is absolutely adorable and I loved being able to see them hand make the pasta.
Very good food and very good service
Authentic Italian food and it was delicious! The servers will sing happy birthday in Italian. The table side dessert chef was amazing too. Great dining experience.
Great atmosphere, delicious food and excellent service
Excellent! Food was delish, and unique menu items! Definitely will be back to try more dishes!
This place is awesome. I had great food, great service, and a great time.
The food was good but overpriced. The service was spotty and felt rushed. Was given the check 45 minutes after seated, very quick for salad and dinner.
The pasta here is off the charts delicious! I've been twice now and ordered the same exact things both times because they were so good the first time. It's hard to decide what to order here because everything sounds so good.
Superb food, attentive service, ambience, vibe...even the parking is friendly!
I hav a very high bar for Italian food and this restaurant exceeds it. The food was outstanding. The pasta is made fresh and cooked to perfection...el dente with the sauce incorporated in the noodles. The service was good with one of the owners checking up on us several times.
LOVE! Will go back always and recommend forever. What an amazing casual Italian dining experience!
Only open 5 months they are off to a very strong start. Especially appreciate the substantial effort they have made to take care of vegan foodies.
Great food!! Great vibe!!! Great service!!! The food is amazing!!
Best Italian restaurant in San Diego!
I had ravioli with the mushroom sauce. The pasta was good and the filling was fine but my taste buds did not jump to attention to say it was amazing. The mushroom cream sauce was quite tasty but on the salty side. My husband had the penne and added the meatballs. The pasta was perfectly al dente and the tomato sauce was good. The meatballs were a good size but a bit bland. We had also shared an excellent Caesar salad. One of the best Caesar salad, the dressing wasn't thick and overpowering. The portions were acceptable but if I was a larger individual, it might not have been enough. We finished off the meal with the panna cotta dessert. A little disappointing on presentation and texture. I've had smoothier panna cotta. The wafer was overdone and didn't taste fresh. The restaurant was busy and there were a lot of staff running around, in my opinion, too many for the amount of tables tightly packed to maximize usable space. Overall, it was a nice evening out with good Italian food.
They welcomed us and three dogs, small, medium and large. The food was luscious, the choices were many, and the service cheery. Ran into one of our table mates at the dog park this morning. She remarked on how she was eager to return.
Great restaurant in the Point Loma hood. I need 50 characters so bla bla bla
Excellent experience all the way around. The food was very good, service attentive and ambiance warm.
Delicious food, excellent service. What more can you ask for? We’ll be back
What a gem we have in San Diego!
My husband and I just came back from Italy and we went to Cesarina to celebrate our anniversary.
We had one of the most fabulous experience eating excellent quality of food like in Italy with an outstanding service!
We want to congratulate the owners and their staff for their excellence
This restaurant is a true gem in the Point loma area! I’ve been there for breakfast before, but this was my first lunch experience. The ravioli was spectacular. Tableside tiramisu for dessert was an added bonus! Definitely a new favorite for lunch. Right at noon, we were the only guests in the restaurant… But it filled up quickly within the hour so I would definitely recommend making a reservation.
The food and and service was good. This was our first time to Cesarina. I made reservations in hopes to get a nice table to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We waited for a table to be cleared although there were a couple of open tables. The table we were sat at was next to the busing station so during our entire meal we had employees coming behind us to get supplies for other tables. It was disappointing to be put in the back conner next to the busing station while other tables (of the same size) were available. The food was worth returning for a better dinning experience.
Good food, nice casual vibe. Very reasonably priced. Great local addition.
Great ambiance and decor for a fun and romantic feel in a normally very casual neighborhood. The food was delicious! Homemade pasta with a variety of sauces to choose from and fantastic appetizers. The table side Tiramisu is definitely worth ordering and The service was great as well. Do not hesitate to try this place!
Just great! Had lunch there (nice outdoor dog friendly patio) and am looking forward to going back soon. I understand dinner is very busy and therefore noisier but lunch was perfect. We split the best Caprese salad either of us have ever had and each had a pasta dinner and , again, one of the best espressos we'd have (our dessert). There is some off street parking which was available at noon when we got there but when we left at 2 it was pretty full.
