Arrivederci in Hillcrest, combines a dash of nouvelle and a splash of sophistication to bring forth a cozy San Francisco-style eatery in the heart of Little Italy, San Diego.This little trattoria stands out by encompassing food and wine and showcasing art. This is a reminder of what the true history of Italy is all about: Food – wine – art. There is nowhere in Italy that you can go and not be affected by the art, sculptures and fountains. That is the utter beauty and essence of Italy.

Actually - a lot of "Italian" restaurants get panned in "Little Italy" - but I've had good experiences at Buon Appetito (don't let the name scare you off). Reservations avoid long waits - the service is good - even when busy. The menu is good, the meals are great and the prices are a bit proud, but doable.

We really enjoyed our night out in Little Italy while on vacation in San Diego. We found this place by using Yelp and it was a good thing we did. They were packed and suggested they could sit us next door on the patio with our pup. We got to choose between their menu and Sogno DiVino's menu which was really nice to have both. The cheese and fruit platter was right up my alley and hit the spot. Also the lasagna was great. I will definitely go back here when I return to San Diego.

Came here for a late lunch while strolling in Littly Italy. Love that the place was dog friendly. The waiter was friendly and informative since it was our first time there. We ordered Farfalle con Pollo Affumicato and the Carne con Risotto both delicious. I was stuff I couldn't try their dessert but next time.

Buon Appetito is located in San Diego in the Little Italy district. Everything is fresh here from their pasta to their vegetables. This is a good restaurant to visit. We had the lasagna and the pesto linguini.

Great place to grab European style breakfast.
Really nice stuff and I love the old Italian dudes that sit outside with their coffees and newspapers talking to each other in Italian.
