La Villa Restaurant and Bar
From the rustic stone exterior to the expansive and colorful interior, Little Italy’s hidden treasure, La Villa Restaurant & Bar, blends urban and rural life together seamlessly. Seated at wooden tables, reminiscent of the farmers’ tables in years past, diners enjoy fresh, sustainable Italian delights. La Villa’s seasonal menu emphasizes the “farm to table” concept by incorporating neighborhood farmers’ products and locally caught seafood in every dish. From the handmade mozzarella found on the Naples inspired pizzas, to the oysters, so fresh that the remnant flavors of the ocean are still present, La Villa pleases the palate time after time. Pasta lovers fawn over specialties like the Smoked Ricotta Pumpkin Ravioli, served with Toasted Oats, Parsnip Puree, Pomegranate, and Beech Mushrooms, and on warm San Diego days, guests can relax under the sun, surrounded by a brightly colored mural on the outside patio and bar.
"This was over a year ago, but the memory of the dining experience stuck with me. This little gem was super romantic. Excellent wine list and excellent attention to detail by the staff. This place is right in my backyard (if you will) but stepping out onto the patio and into the restaurant made me feel transformed into a small family run Italian restaurant in Italy. Well done."
