This is my FAVORITE Italian place to go in San Diego. It's slightly expensive but NOT for the quality of food that you get. Every time I go, I'm shocked at how low the bill is. It's extremely romantic and cozy and the atmosphere is very mellow and relaxing. I've never felt rushed or uncomfortable. The music is also very quiet and relaxing. The service is amazing, they really anticipate your every need before you even do! Definitely a great place to take someone special.
