One of my favorite dishes from here! I first found out about Pesto when living right down the street from the College location. Walking there nearly every other night for dinner. Now I live in Mission Valley and am so happy they've gotten a second location! The Mission Valley location is now mine and my 2 roommates go-to spot. It never gets old even if we're eating it 3 days in a row. It's real authentic, beautifully crafted Italian cuisine. The manager is absolutely amazing, I always saw him hands on at College location and am always happy to see him at Mission Valley where he never fails to greet us. We also love the fact that he's probably been the only person in San Diego to pronounce my Italian boyfriend's last name correctly lol. Anyways, I'm addicted to Pesto. Every single item never ever disappoints.

Love this place. Excellent innovative Italian Antipasta and full meals. Great staff. Excellent and high value happy hour. Try the mussels with marinera, burrata pesto and Bruschetta. Fine choice of wines

I ordered the vegan pizza last night and it was so good I almost finished it for dinner. I recently became vegan and it's so hard to find delicious and flavorful food. My pie was colorful with lots of goodness - portobello mushrooms, broccoli, roasted eggplant on a cauliflower crust with daiyan vegan cheese and tomato sauce. The special treat was the touch of balsamic to finish it off. I can't wait to get another ! A real treat for healthy eaters who still want good taste and a beautiful presentation.

Went to dinner here last night and the food was amazing. Authentic, flavorful and very fresh. Had a lot more than just the pesto pizza but that was definitely one of my faves and even tasted good this morning when I ate it for breakfast. The burrata salad was very good and also the gnocchi with bacon and tomato's. Definitely will be joining them for dinner a few times a week most likely.

Really good! Eggplant cooked just right, not mushy but cooked through. Tasty sauce and perfectly cooked pasta.

I love the cauliflower crust gluten free "build your own" pizza from Pesto. Their garlic knots are good, too. I like their craft soda "bar," where you can mix flavors, or just get one flavor. I moved north, and miss Pesto. A location in Carlsbad or Oceanside would be appreciated.

It was the greatest panni. We had. My brother who is hesitant to try new dishes loved this

Best meatballs and spaghetti and every pizza on the menu is my Dad's favorites. So much flavor and never overcooked. Keep up the amazing delicious tasting Italian food. First time trying this location, missing our other favorite chicken parmesan at this location.
