S3, where sun, surf and sand uniquely fuse with steak, seafood and sushi for a perfect combination of island atmosphere and globally-influenced, sea-inspired fare.<br />A wood burning grill lights up the place and sets fire to the menu offering Grilled Octopus, Skirt Steak, Jerk Chicken Skewers, Shrimp Toast and more. Let your eyes do the ordering, via an expansive raw bar featuring fresh-caught delights like Tiradito Wahoo and Yellowtail, Snapper or snack plates like a Trio of Dips (whipped feta, chickpea, and roasted eggplants) or Goat Cheese Cakes. A moderately priced menu serves up a variety of small plates

Parma Cucina Italiana is located in the hearth of Hillcrest. It offers down to earth ambience and fantastic Italian cuisine and is sure to be a staple in San Diego for years to come. From the Italian wines and the best Italian products to the native Italian, “right off the boat” proprietors, Parma-Cucina Italian is as authentic as it gets.

Welcome to CUCINA urbana, a casual Italian American Neighborhood Kitchen and Wine Shop located in the heart of Banker's Hill. The menu highlights the cuisines of various Italian regions with a distinct California ‘farm to table’ flair for which the Urban Kitchen Group has become known. Chef Joe Magnanelli is excited to preview his Italian heritage and create dishes that are fresh, simple and seasonal. Items include: antipasti, artisan pizza, pasta and piatti. Enjoy wine by the glass or visit the Wine Spectator award-winning wine shop and select a bottle from over 100 selections at retail price ($8 corkage fee applies). The space features contemporary elements and vintage artifacts creating the feel of a modern Italian kitchen combined with the history and comfort of an old rustic country farmhouse. A focus on raw, sustainable material is evident with much product coming from recycled/reclaimed local sources. <br />

"Thrilled to see one of our favorite places was still going strong! Dumplings and sushi appetizers were so fresh and delicious. Entrée of duck was perfect as was the shrimp and scallop noodle dish."

"We chose Abe and Louie's to celebrate my daughter's birthday and felt the restaurant was suffering from an off night. Our waiter was not attentive--we ended up having to pour our own wine and sparkling water and we had to ask for the lobster accessories as they were not placed on the table before or after the entrees were presented. The couple next to us where aghast when his steak was presented and appeared to be raw (he had requested medium rare) and my husband's prime rib was a very small cut and not to the usual quality. My daughter selected the chocolate cake for dessert and it was brought to the table and plopped down with no fanfare or even a happy birthday wish. The Yukon Gold Smashed potatoes and Filet were cooked perfectly."
