Congratulations to Acquavite Ristorante Italiano on being voted Good Eats San Diego!

We are in the process of building your feature. Take a look back soon and your review will be posted here with the high resolution photography. Enjoy!

Below is from their website…

A hidden gem nestled inside the Coast Walk on Prospect Street, Acquavite Ristorante offers Italian cuisine with authentic flavors, made true to the regions they come from. The menu features homemade pasta, fresh ravioli, delicious risotto, and a unique selection of wines. The setting offers a romantic, yet relaxed rustic ambiance with a contemporary decor accompanied by amazing ocean views.

The restaurant was conceived and developed by award winning Executive Chef Filippo Piccini and Managing Partner Nicola Balsemin. Filippo who hails from Tuscany and made his mark as a culinary innovator specializing in traditional Italian cuisine and fine dining said “We are bringing the flavor of Tuscany to La Jolla at a level that people will not forget.” The name Acquavite was inspired by an Italian distillate made out of grapes, usually enjoyed at the end of the meal as digestive.

The vision for the restaurant is to keep the Italian tradition and culture alive by delighting guests with a carefully thought out food and wine menu. With excellent service, flavorful classical Italian cuisine with fine wines to pair, the restaurant will bring to life an enjoyable dining experience on Prospect Street!
