FIRST LOOK: Vincezo Cucina & Lounge Brings More Cheese Wheel Pasta To San Diego's Little Italy

April 17, 2024

Patrons will be able to get homemade pasta finished in six different types of cheese wheels at Vincezo, the newest Italian restaurant now open in San Diego's Little Italy.

Last month, Farmers Table restaurant shuttered its Little Italy location after five years in business. Vincenzo Loverso's San Diego Dining Group - which also operates Greystone The Steakhouse, Osetra The Fishhouse, Osteria Panevino, Saltwater, Rusticucina, The Butcher's Cut, Breakfast & Bubbles, Allegro, InPasta, Zama, Truffle Neighborhood Cucina, and others - quickly repurposed the space to open his first namesake restaurant Vincenzo. 
Dubbed San Diego's first "cheese wheel bar", Vincezo restaurant will have a reservation-only cheese wheel pasta bar where diners can order fresh made pastas prepared in six diverse cheese wheels directly sourced from all around Italy. Guests will be able to select their preferred cheese from an array of options then pair it with one of six homemade pasta selections. The restaurant will also offer a variety of antipasti appetizers, salads, soups, sides and entrees like a Korubuta pork tomahawk and pan seared scallops served with squid ink risotto and tobico caviar. 
In addition to the cheese wheel bar option, Vincenzo will be open seven days a week offering breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant will also house a one-of-a-kind Aperol Spritz window bar located next to their upscale cocktail bar. There will also be two private dining rooms accommodating 45 and 18 guests, respectively.

Vincenzo Italian restaurant is now open at 550 West Date Street, Suite A, in San Diego's Little Italy. For more information, visit
