    Love Pizza 1909, the location, the airiness, the staff and of course the food is so authentic, that you want to savor every bit of it. By far one of the best spots in San Diego for Italian cuisine. Napolitana pizza is at the level you get in Sardinia or Sicily, with all the ingredients and flavors.

    Absolutely awful from beginning to end. We had a horribly rude and unfriendly waiter named Stefano. The food was also tasteless. Worst minestrone soup I’ve ever eaten (and I’ve been to Italy several times) I had to send it back because it tasted like dish water with a couple of chunks of butternut squash in it. Stefano was beyond disgusted that I wanted to send it back. My friend’s Pesto dish was literally worse than what you could throw together at home with a store bought jar of pasta sauce and my Risotto was also pretty terrible, but I forced it down so as not to further incur the wrath of our surly waiter, who seemed truly inconvenienced every time he came to our table. Just don’t waste your time or money here!! There are far better more authentic and friendly restaurants in San Diego (like Buena Forchetta).

    Thanks for your feed back. I have talked to our server & mgr and they did everything to accommodate your requests, from changing your table three times, taking out of the check what you did not like and prepare other dishes, in order to please you. Unfortunately, he felt distressed, but he did not have any intention of being rude, and we are sorry you had that impression. As a chef, I use the best fresh ingredients & I wish to welcome you in my kitchen & prepare a great meal on your next visit

    This was our second visit to Piazza 1909, and again we loved it. Our first occasion there was Sunday Harp Brunch. The brunch was delicious and the harp was heavenly. On Thursday evening we returned to dine and enjoy live classical guitar music. Molto bello.

    I took by niece and nephew for brunch on Sunday. We were a little early but were seated right away. Fun place. Mostly outdoor seating but nice to be able to chose between sun or shade. Very pleasant staff. Excellent menu choices and service. Food was prepared quickly and correctly. They had a lady playing the harp while we were there and that was quite lovely and added to the overall good ambiance of the place!

    Mamma Mia, what a fantastic dinner we had on our most recent visit to Piazza 1909. Chef Stefano had some very interesting specials on the menu and we decided to try a few of them. The Braesola Fagioletti, I think it was called was bursting with flavors in your mouth. A combo of goat cheese and pears wrapped up in cured beef pinched into parcels served with caponata and arugula was just fantastic. The Tagliolini Tartufo, pasta with truffle was outstanding. The pasta noodles were light and fresh and the truffle flavor, well, who doesn't like truffles? I could eat it everyday and have been thinking of it non stop. Our server Riley is so professional and helpful and attentive without being overbearing. A perfect dinner out!
