Trattoria Fantastica

Many restaurants in Little Italy have become destinations, among them the Busalacchi family's Trattoria Fantastica. The rustic décor features a relaxed country-style feel throughout the restaurant, including the delightful patio. The wonderfully welcoming atmosphere celebrates yet another delicious Sicilian food lineup, including pizzas and all that you would expect from an authentic Italian menu. The terrific entrées show the Sicilian influence, and fill the restaurant with great aromas.

We would love to hear your feedback on your experience.

"A friend and I were visiting San Diego for the weekend and looking for an Italian place with more than just pasta. We had made a reservation but were a little early and they still were able to accommodate us since we only had a group of two. We sat on the patio which had an awesome Italian neighborhood vibe with great ambience. It felt as if we were eating in a friend's backyard in Italy! Our server was very attentive and even other servers interacted as they walked by! The bread and oil was TO DIE FOR! I had a margherita pizza and my friend had pasta and both were fantastic. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for reasonably priced but delicious Italian food!"

"The only negative is that the hostess did not bother to pull up the reservation I told her I had, so I was reported to OpenTable for not honoring my reservation. Ended up submitting my receipt number and server name as proof to correct this error."

Loved that the bottles of wine were half off.

"The food was just what we were looking for. From the salad to the pastas we had. The bolognese was more like a red meat sauce, but fantastic none the less! The Linguine with clams was a perfect garlicky white wine sauce. I'm ready to go back!"

"We were in San Diego for our daughter's wedding . A few days before my husband and I had some time to relax walk around little Italy and found this gem of a place being Italian and from New Jersey let me tell you this place is the best fantastic food.

So we ended up going back 2 more times in our trip bringing family there they were very very pleased with the food and we asked to be seated in Margaret's area cause she is the best!!!!!!! The food is 5 star go there"

"We've been to Trattoria Fantastica numerous times. Almost every time I get the Pescatore. Every time I have tons of food left over. But this time, the size of the entree was dramatically smaller. Also seems not as flavorful. was disappointed about that."

"This is my fourth visit to TF, just love going there every time I am in San Diego. I really wanted Veal Parmigiana, but it wasn't on the menu. Noticed a couple of veal items on the menu and asked if it was possible to get it, the answer was YES. Go there on Tuesdays because it's half price bottles of wine. Got a Stags Leap Petite Syrah (personal favorite) for $47. Great staff, neat atmosphere, all around good time as always!"

"The meatballs are great. If you don't have them with dinner, at least order the appetizer. The pastas were all good, as was the veal. I would not order the linguine and clams again. It was ok, but the other food was better. So not really a complaint, just the other food was better. We were a group of 6 and everyone liked what they had. The server was very friendly. Casual atmosphere."
