Among a hefty lot of competition, Buon Appetito offers a cozy evening tucked away in San Diego’s Little Italy. With a choice of indoor and outdoor seating, you can dine into the late hours thanks to their substantial portions and thorough wine list.
To start, the Melanzane all’ Amalfitana will melt your socks off. Even eggplant haters succumb to its tasty lure. Baked to perfection, thickly sliced eggplant is consumed by a tangy tomato sauce and paired with fresh mozzarella. A juxtaposition of sweet butter and sharp zest so rare, you have to try it for yourself.
By far, the most luscious, most mouth-watering plate has to be a dish on their specials menu: a juicy pork shank topped with a mound of sautéed mushrooms along with the creamiest risotto in town. If you’re pasta buds are flaring up, be sure to try the Linguine Boscomare – thick pasta laced with chunky shrimp, scallops, salty sun-dried tomatoes and fresh asparagus in a delectable brandy pink sauce.
The service is impeccable. All Italians. All passionate. All night. The next time you’re near Little Italy, make a trip to Buon Appetito. You’re in for a thrill.
