Cicciotti's Trattoria Italiana and Seafood
1933 San Elijo Avenue
San Diego, CA 92007
Cicciotti's is one of the few places in Cardiff by the Sea where you can enjoy a local meal, relax by the fire pit and listen to some authentic Italian tunes. Apart from being owned by a true Italian, this restaurant is one of the only bearable places in this small beach community and plays at is assests well. Centrally located, its view just tips the ocean and uses the typically sunny weather of southern California with its outdoor patio and fire pits. Ideally, the best Italian food would be found here - and with its extensive pasta, pizza and meat dishes patrons are pleasantly surprised by the sheer authenticity of Cicciotti's. What makes any Italian meal seem like it's just steps away from the Trevi Fountain is the live music performed by professional trained locals, many of whom have a well trained following.
