Landini's Pizzeria Owner To Open Italian Restaurant Scuderie Italia In San Diego's Pacific Beach

June 5, 2020

The owner of San Diego's popular Landini's Pizzeria is opening a full service Italian restaurant in Pacific Beach. Scuderie Italia will open later this year in the standalone building that last housed Caffè Bella Italia.

Florence-native Leo Landini took over the former Pizzeria Luigi in Little Itay in 2008 and opened his namesake eatery. In 2016, Landini repurposed the second tier space above his pizzeria and launched full-service restaurant Ristorante Illando. In 2018, he launched a small-scale eatery inside the Liberty Public Market in Point Loma's Liberty Station.

Later this year, Landini will open Scuderie Italia in the space previously occupied by Caffè Bella Italia in Pacific Beach. Scuderie Italia, which translates to "stable Italy", will have a full menu of Italian dishes, as well as wood-fired, Neopolitan pizza. The eatery will also have a variety of local beers and a curated wine list.

Scuderie Italia is anticipated to open by this fall at 1525 Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach. Visit to learn more.
