Rated 5 out of 5 by from The staff was amazing and really attentive. The owner even came over and talked to every table, sweet man. The food was so good. I went with the sole Portifino BEST dish I've ever had.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from my brother an I ordered chicken marsella and parmesan $27 each both of us got the feeling that both waiter and water boy didn't want us there. I think they wanted us to spend 4x as much money restaurant way over priced!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good food, Garlic Bread is excellent. Service is attentive without being intrusive. Corkage fee is $25.00 which is quite high by comparison to similar establishments. It's in the Gaslamp so parking is a problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sadly, I was disappointed at this visit on a Saturday night. I dined alone, as my 2 daughters were enjoying a show at the Balboa Theater and I wanted to be close by. Their show started at 8pm. I had reservations at de Medici at 8:15. I had the patio all to myself, which was kind of neat. I ordered a Manhattan Martini, Calamari Fritti, and the Veal Chop Alle Erbe. My drink and appetizer took a few minutes, but I was killing time so I didn't mind. My server delivered 1 slice of bread. After more waiting, I started to worry about the time. I asked my server, "What's up with my meal?" and he replied, "It's coming right out." Unfortunately, my veal chop did not arrive until 9:33pm. Not one second after I made my first cut into the meat and lifted it to my mouth, my daughter called and said the show was finished and they were ready to be picked up. I told my server, "Get my bill and a box, now!" The manager (may have been the owner, he was in a sweet bright blue suit) came out to see if everything was okay and I explained that my entree took forever and now I had to go. He apologized. I ended up eating my $47 cold veal chop at home on a TV tray watching the Olympics.My server was very nice, the food was good, but taking more than 1 hour for my entree is unacceptable. At least give me more bread, another drink on the house, or offer me an appetizer. I will give them another try because I have more coupons and they are one of the few nice restaurants in the Gaslamp that participate in that program, but if this happens again, then that will be it for de Medici. I have dined there before and it was nice, so I'm hoping this was an exception.
