Little Italy Bar & Grill - Scripps Ranch
Disappointed it wasn’t the Italian place we expected.
First time visit..awesome everything and will return when in the area..great group of employees :)
They change the menu and the name but it’s a great little joint tucked away in Scripps Ranch.
Great place to meet up for a bite. Nice menu variety. Friendly staff.
This restaurant is no longer Italian, which is what we were expecting. It is now a noisy Junction Bar & Grill. The food is so-so bar food, the music is too loud, and so were the patrons, who were apparently enjoying a Happy Hour lunch. Disappointed to say the least.
We were a little disconcerted with the no wearing of masks by all the personnel inside the restaurant. As we are approaching the June 15th date of a fully opened California I would think that all establishments would still be abiding by the current health mandate here in California and particularly San Diego.
Took my wife and daughter here for dinner because we were craving Italian food. Turns out, they changed their name so it no longer Little Italy. Their menu has also changed. It’s more American bar food like burgers and stuff. The food was ok, service was great. The only problem is that 95% of the workers were not wearing masks.
It was a wild night with the Padres first no hitter in history so it was amazing atmosphere inside!!!
The food was really awful. When asked what menu item was most popular, our waitress avoided the question...we realized why when our food was delivered. My Reuben sandwich was terrible...meat tasted old and fried. My companion's pizza was mushy and inedible. I didn't ask my other two friends about their food, but noticed no one finished their meal. Additionally, the signage doesn't reflect the "new name," Little Bar and Grill...probably for good reason. The poor waitress was good...the only positive thing about our meal.
This restaurant is no longer called "Little Italy." It is now "The Junction," with a sports bar theme. This was the first time we'd been to the restaurant since the switch, and for us it was not a move for the better. The furnishings are cold and sterile and the walls are plastered with TVs right on top of each other. I get that TVs with sports are a staple, and I have enjoyed watching games at these types of bars in the past, but it seemed like overkill, especially considering they were showing just three different games at the time. Other than the TVs there is no other indication this is a place where sports fans hang out. When we entered the restaurant the music was really loud and annoying. When we asked if the volume could be lowered a bit, the server told us no because they are a sports bar now and this is their vibe. Fortunately the music eventually got better and quieter. The menu is a mish mash of sports bar fare bolted on to a pared down version of the former Little Italy menu. The food was fine but we won't be rushing back. This is neither a truly classic sports bar nor a good place for a pleasant dinning experience any longer.
Service is good and it's a nice menu. Planning to return soon.
Our server was great. All the apperizers and main courses were really good. We will be back.
Great service always... and the food is really good everytime I go there.
This is no longer an Italian restaurant, it is now a sports bar call the Junction. Misrepresented and wouldn’t have gone had we known.
Good food but very loud inside
Awesome place for great food, drinks and watching sports!
Great! Delicious food and inexpensive.
Her server Britney was absolutely phenomenal. Food was excellent wonderful price points for happy hour. Highly recommend. Five stars
So happy to come and sit on their patio with heaters and dine out! Service was wonderful and the servers and hostess' were polite and engaging. Food was great--def bar food but flavorful. A gem in the middle of suburbia!
This is not even called Little Italy bar and Grill anymore, it’s called the Junction and the menu has changed and the service has definitely changed. It was pretty noisy and casual I didn’t have the same great items on the menu that my husband and I have come to love. Along with the waitress pretty much messed up 65% of our order
Great family restaurant and neighborhood bar / meet up.
This is the best little hidden gem. I'm so glad we found it. The food is always good, haven't had anything there yet we haven't liked. Their service is great no matter which server you have. Their appetizers are perfect for sharing. We have been there about 6 times since we found them about 1 1/2months ago. They have outside seating. The tables inside are adjusted for social distancing. I can't wait to go back!!
Delicious food and excellent service!
The ambience was great, customers seem to enjoy their time there. TVs all around with three different Sports programs going. Prices were reasonable service was great, we would definitely go back again.
Little Italy in Scripps Ranch is now Junction Bar and Grill. It does not service Italian food anymore but we ordered a variety of tacos for $3.50. They were delicious and very reasonable.
As well as could be expected
We made a point to go to the new “junction” this weekend since they had parking lot dining. I love the patio/parking lot/side walk dining experience. I commented to my wife that it reminds of Europe, having a meal and Diane wine our outside. Fortunately the San Diego summer is relatively cool so you can comfortably eat outside.
My son had a club sandwich-lived it. It looked good too.
My wife had a basic salad and tater pots. She was a little peeved that there wasn’t a single BLW veggie protein. They are everywhere now and take it for granted that a local Scripps restaurant would have an impossible or beyond burger but no.
I had a spaghetti with sauce - safe as the Junction was an Italian jus rebranded - nothing special-quite the opposite.
I love scripps but this restaurant is fine for quick dining or sports- I think that’s the idea behind rebranding it from Little Italy- but not for date or nice meal. Nothing to do with parking lot- the food just isn’t that impressive nor worth the price. I am happy I did t have the NY Strip - 60 items on the menu 5 steaks - it steak house.
Staff were nice, service was reasonable. Scripps needs a good Sports Bar and this could be just the right place. Good luck and look forward to football season or a World Cup. This might be their sweet stop.
Little Italy is now Junction Bar & Grill. We've been going there frequently for a long time and really like the changes. The expanded menu has great options and the service is always wonderful. The manager, Chad is one of the best!
They didn't honor our Open Table reservation. We had a confirmed reservation, but then got a call when we were 10 minutes away saying the kitchen closed early, and they wouldn't be able to seat us or take an order.
Great appetizers, great dinner and great Cadillac Margarita. Service attentive. Food hot and as pre-pandemic consistently overall good!
Little Italy consistently provides quality and delicious food and service. One of our favorite dining experiences!
Very cute place and the food was amazing as well !
Excellent value with excellent service. The menu is awesome and the food is awesome. The bartender is top shelf as well is all the wait staff
Service was great, food was good but not special and it was very noisy.
Everything was amazing! The drinks were refreshing (a tad expensive), food was delicious, and service was extraordinary! As a someone who worked in a restaurant for two years, these are all things I look for in a great establishment.
Little Italy went above and beyond my expectations.
Excellent food and service
Overpriced for product
LOVE the food! The marinara is the BEST we’ve ever tasted!
Very slow service for midweek. and the new bartender was not as good as previous. The drinks weren’t anything liked we ordered in the past.
