At Wine A Bit Coronado, meals and drinks go down in sips and nibbles. The owners wanted an environment in which people could feel free to unwind while trying new wines and interesting pairings at their own pace. To that end, they collected a wine list from around the world, along with a robust selection of house wines made especially for them. They hold casual tastings in a comfy back room every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening, pouring samples of up to seven wines for guests to try. These events tend to coincide with the presence of a musician, who offers up tunes to please the ears as visitors train their palates and sample appetizers such as artisan flatbreads and brie-and-apple stacks drizzled with agave nectar. Also onsite are more than 20 craft beers made by local brewers.

Every day at Toast Enoteca & Cucina, Mario Gonzalez performs a brilliant balancing act between tradition and innovation. Having trained in Italy under renowned chefs, he's mastered the fundamentals of Italian cooking, and his expertise shines in homemade pastas, sauces, and breads. However, his knack for experimentation has also led to modern showstoppers, such as pizza topped with octopus ragu. These meals have made his name synonymous with San Diego's Italian food scene?and secured him a job as a caterer for the San Diego Padres whenever the team has trouble firing up the dugout smoker.
Perhaps the most impressive part of Gonzalez's balancing act, however, is the wine. Toast has up to 400 wines on its award-winning list, with varietals from New Zealand, Argentina, Germany, and Spain in addition to Italy. But this classic accompaniment to dinner is often delivered in what looks like a science-fiction device: an Enomatic machine, designed to pour wine by the glass while keeping it fresh within the bottle.
Olivetto Ristorante and its owner Angelo Fiore welcome patrons with homey ambiance and selection of modern Italian fare influence by classic recipes. In 2008, the San Diego Reader claimed "it has all the virtues of a 'neighborhood Italian joint' ? warmth, spirit, informality, prices not too bad ? but the food is better than most," and Zagat's menu rating of "very good to excellent" supports this assertion. They make their own ravioli and pesto in-house and bake fresh loaves of bread. To accompany meals, the caf? also features a wine selection with refreshing whites and heartier reds from around the world, including authentic Italian offerings. Olivetto welcomes any meeting, from business get-togethers to romantic dinners.
