warmth and rustic charm

In 2002 the Owners of Trattoria i Trulli in Encinitas & Arrivederci Restaurant group of Hillcrest
decided to venture into the neighborhood of San Diego's Little Italy.

With more than 60 years of restaurant and hospitality experience, cooking skills from the "University of Mama's Kitchen". Buon Appetito got a running start and there was life, happy guests, cheer & great meals amongst friends and families.

We hope you truly realize your dining experience to be as warm as your fondest childhood memories of family meals and gatherings. Break bread with us at Buon Appetito, drink wine and nourish your soul with the goodness of genuine Italian hospitality and the true family recipes from our kitchen to your belly.
