Good food and service at this boutique restaurant in the heart of Del Mar! They offer indoor or outdoor dining and they have a good wine selection.

We selected this after looking at the menu online. We were not disappointed period. It was a fun menu a lot of delicious, fresh foods. We can recommend the brussels sprouts, The flatbreads, any of the salads, and the soup. Service was attentive and friendly. We will definitely go back.

We usually go there for happy hour. I enjoy the food and service, though I have never been too fond of the physical space. It is a popular place just a couple of blocks from the ocean.

We had lunch here. A southwest salad (a few beans and some corn, a little avocado with ice berg lettuce) and sweet potato fries, which were served luke warm.

Yes the location is within walking distance to the beach, but most of the view is of rooftops, telephone poles and such. The menu has a good variety to choose from, but unfortunately the roasted asparagus we ordered on the side was very tough and the tips were MIA. Really? However, our server did not hesitate to take it off... More

I have eaten here many times for lunch and a few times for dinner. The location is good as it allows you to people watch especially in the summer as people go up and down the street to the beach. Menu has a good variety to please most and the wine list is pretty good as well. They have a... More

We sat upstairs with a nice view of the ocean & sunset. My citrus salad was fresh and tangy and the trout, although a bit oily, was cooked beautifully. Our friends swear by the roasted pork and the short ribs. Creme brûlée and sorbet/gelato desserts ended a great meal.

Great location for a romantic get away dinner on the coast within walking distance to the beach. A unique menu with favor that will melt in your mouth. Last visit I split the filet and braised beef that was truly amazing. Enjoy the great service, location and food. Go upstairs for a view of the setting sun.

Sarah at Park Hyatt Avaira recommended Sbicca and booked the upstairs private dining room for our large group. We preordered several of every appetizer on the menu to start and we're not disappointed with any of them! The group basically ran the menu so we had a chance to try everything they cooked....unbelievable! I had the Bolognese and tried the... More

San Diego's favorite "Neighborhood" restaurant. Located in beautiful, quaint Del Mar and winner of the "Gold Medallion Award" for Best Neighborhood Restaurant awarded by the San Diego Chapter of the California Restaurant Association. Dine up on the Ocean View deck and take in the blue pacific while enjoying our award winning cuisine or sit on our ocean view sidewalk cafe and sip on one of our Wine Spectator award winning wine list wines.
