Today’s Groupon is full of savory, old-world deliciousness. Thirty dollars gets you $65 worth of food and drink at de’Medici Ristorante Italiano, the Gaslamp District’s home of fine Italian dining and former home of baseball great Willie Mays. Owner Salvator Vitale prides his elegant trattoria on the hospitality and service of his staff, and the cuisine that's lovingly prepared in the open kitchen or tableside (like the Atlantic smoked salmon or Caesar salad). Take a look at de’Medici’s extensive menu to find favorites from Southern and Northern Italy, including fettuccine alla Bolognese, linguini pescatore (with seabass, swordfish, clams, shrimp, and calamari), scaloppinie (sliced veal) or pollo (chicken) alla marsala, or piccata. If you once described yourself as a pescaphile in a personal ad, make sure to check out more of de'Medici's impressive seafood options.


SignOnSanDiego.com raves over the traditional fare at de’Medici:

  • Delicious pastas range from Gnocchi Ponte Vecchio (served with a gorgonzola and pesto sauce and the best gnocchi dish this writer's had) to a superb Fettuccine alla Bolognese rich with ground veal and filet mignon. – Jennifer Croshaw, SignOnSanDiego.com

Eighty percent of diners on Urbanspoon cheer de’Medici, and Citysearchers give it five stars.

  • The service is the best in San Diego. The sea food is always fresh and prepered [sic] anyway you want. Ceasar Salad prepared from scratch tableside. – tombenzing, Citysearch
  • For a wonderful eating experience, try the Steak Dianne. It's remarkable. I'd recommend it to anyone that appreciates fine dining and beautiful surroundings. – pashentz, Citysearch

1937: Commissioned the Spanish Civil War in order to inspire Picasso’s Guernica.
1966: Commissioned the Swingin’ Medallions beach-rock hit “Double Shot (Of My Baby’s Love).”
