From the creators of Ciao Bella in La Mesa comes Mamma Mia, the new mother of all Italian restaurants in San Diego. Francesco and Cinzia Mezzetti are the authentic Italian parents you always dreamed of; mixing up warm, inviting Italian dishes in a quaint Pacific Beach cottage. This unassuming orange beach house serves lunch and dinner from Tuesday to Sunday, welcoming an eager packed-house without fail.
Rumors of spinach and pear gorgonzola salads paired with no corkage fee, followed by handmade gnocchi and lasagna spilled through Pacific Beach streets immediately after the opening--and the hype hasn't burned off yet. The Italian charm and rich, hearty flavor leaves guests in awe. Leave Garnet for a night and see what the buzz is all about.
