  • Great restaurant N Little Italy & probably the best italian restaurant N san diego,Their potato gnocchi with Ai Formagi creamy cheese sauce is extremely good! Penne Arabbiatta is delicious as well!
  • Top of my list in Little Italy and a nice addition to the area in the Q building. Great service, owners and of course food.
  • Bencotto literally means "Done Well" in Italian and I cannot agree more. Head there soon, dine there often and you'll be sure to "Do Well!"
  • Been addicted since my first visit their opening night, Guido & Valentina serve fresh Italian
  • Blown away. Love it. Can't find the words. Just get here.
  • Great place, great food & great cocktails! The owners are amazing & so welcoming.
  • Everything we had today was amazing! Eggplant parmigiano,homemade ravioli stuffed w goat cheese & porcini mushrooms, shrimp squid ink pasta and pannacotta w blackberry puree everything was fantastic!
  • Get the pasta! It's amazing.
  • Fried asparagus
  • Tagliatelle al Nero di seppiaHand cut black squid ink fettuccine in a spicy pink shrimp sauce
  • Handmade pastas and quality Italy-sourced products, plus a sleek, contemporary setting, help distinguish this Little Italy eatery from the rest of the neighborhood. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Pancetta sauce, say yes. The squid ink dishes are good. I would skip the salads. It's more like modern Italian, a twist on some traditional dishes.
  • Salumi misti - burrata - ravioli butter & sage - tiramisu ...I can't seem to get away from this FIXED menu!!!!
  • Great find! Food was amazing, service on point, and loved that valet was right around the corner. Will be coming back for sure
  • AmazeBALLS
  • The gnocco frittos are yummy with the salumi platter
  • The gnocchi with the salsa ai formaggi is awesome
  • Good spot for dinner. Make a reservation! The place is always packed. Even at the bar you should reserve a seat. The gnoochi, the pollo pizzaiola, and the mashed potatoes all good!
  • If they have the lamb shank special order this!! Amazing, the meat falls right off the bone.
  • This was some of the best Italian I have had! On par with NYs top restaurants. The crab filled ravioli with lobster parmesan sauce topped with caviar!
