The best Italian restaurant there is in San Diego, the atmosphere, service, speed can not be match when you put everything together, they are the best.
Whenever I eat at Nicolosi's I always get the baked raviolis. I love the sauce- one of the better gravy's I've had besides my own family's. This trip we picked up a pizza to go for my wife's birthday. The meat lovers (I believe it's called or something similar). So many toppings and cheese was perfect.
My parents and I have been coming here for many years - even past locations of this restaurant. I now live out of state, but we make a point to visit when we are in town. Super friendly staff, great food, and a good value.
It all started when Salvatore Nicolosi emigrated from Sicily to America in 1906. Salvatore and his wife, Francesca, opened their first restaurant in 1952 in Mission Hills, and with that, it became an instant success.
After Salvatore passed in 1954, the restaurant was taken over by his family. As the restaurant grew in popularity, their desire to expand brought many new locations and even San Diego’s first delivery location featuring three Yamaha motorcycles with boxes on the back to transport pizzas.
