    MICHELIN Bib Gourmand

    2022

Fresh housemade pasta reigns at this charming Point Loma trattoria. Cesarina landed MICHELIN Bib Gourmand status for its knockout mix-and-match pasta options and one exceptional tableside tiramisu. The colorful Italian restaurant is a go-to for weekend brunch, best enjoyed on its bougainvillea-strewn patio.

    We came in to celebrate my best friends birthday. We were greeted on time & they even had a booth free! Perfect!! We split a Caesar salad & we split the lasagna. Both were so delicious. We couldn’t finish it all. But then a surprise dessert came. If you have not had their tiramisu, you are missing out on something important. We suddenly rallied and had room for this dessert. It was made fresh at the table. Sinful to say the least. Thank you Cesarina! Everything was PERFECT!

    Impeccable service. Authentic made in house pasta. Educated staff explained dishes. Outdoor patio will have the plane noise. But it was not that bad. Sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance ! We already want to go back!

    It never ceases to amaze me! The pasta, made in house, is so delicious. It’s cooked to perfection. Slightly adente, & perfectly matched with an awesome mushroom cream sauce. Also tried the squash blossoms for the first time. Delicious! This place never disappoints. A real treat!
