Best Italian in San Diego – Hands down. Real Italian. Been going here for years, same great food, great service.
Upscale Italian restaurant features friendly service from tuxedo-clad waiters and decor inspired by its movie namesake. – In Short
Tucked away in a strip mall, this family-owned Italian restaurant has been a local's favorite for 35 years. The original restaurant started by Isidoro Balistreri specialized in treasured recipes brought from Palermo, Sicily, and today the menu offers favorites from both Northern and Southern Italy. Michael Corleone or Tony Soprano would feel right at home in one of the cozy red booths. The dimly lit dining room decorated with old country accessories is perfect for a business lunch, romantic supper for two, or a celebratory banquet. Reasonably priced combo platters team cannelloni with filet mignon, veal or chicken entrees. Other standouts include veal piccata, eggplant parmigiana, linguini with clams and shrimp scampi.
Great customer service & outstanding food – My husband and I like to try new restaurants and fell in love with the Godfather. They have a large selection of foods on the menu, which are served family style. The service is great, very friendly servers and always around to refill drinks or answer questions.
Excellent Italian Food with Enjoyable Atmosphere – What a wonderful experience! From the waiters in tuxedos to the live piano music, this place is fabulous! The food was wonderful, moderately priced, and we felt totally comfortable in our nice jeans and tops. Note to those with the entertainment book: use your card and get a buy one get one free meal! We will definitely be repeat customers!
