Our History

View of the main port in Ponza, Italy.

The Di Giovanni Family comes from the small island of Ponza located about 20 miles off the coast of mainland Italy. Our family has restaurants in Italy as well as throughout the United States. Because the restaurants are family run, they may be considered to be "Trattoria." In the spirit and tradition of the Trattoria, we are able to create delicious food with quality ingredients at reasonable prices. If you stop by and try our food, you will taste the pride and passion that goes into every dish we prepare.

We've been serving San Diego County and cooking out of our current location since 1973 (that's over 40 years!). For those of you who haven't joined us for lunch or dinner, we hope that you stop by soon. For those that join us regularly, we thank and hope to see you again!
