BICE Ristorante is adding something new and unique to San Diego’s culinary scene with its beautifully designed and modern décor and savory menu options. Perfectly located in the historic Gaslamp Quarter of Downtown San Diego, BICE offers diners a skillful mix of traditional and contemporary trends in Italian cuisine featuring local and seasonal ingredients. The refreshing and lively corner eatery includes a soft, muted color-palette accented with dark wood paneling and modern furniture that creates both a cozy and luxurious feel. Walk in the dining room and your attention is instantly drawn to the massive glass wine vault, which features a sophisticated wine selection and custom wine lockers.
Menu selections at BICE include traditional Milanese items with a modern twist. Executive Chef Mario Cassineri changes the menu often, highlighting the seasons freshest. Standouts include BICE’s Daily Risotto, perfectly prepared and possibly the best in San Diego. Others include the Mediterranean Sea Bass on a Cedar Plank and slow-cookedOsso Buco, which appears often as a nightly special. The jewel of BICE is its market-style, sit-down cheese and salumi bar, which features unique and exciting selections not found on many menus, especially in San Diego. Offering a variety of imported Italian cheese, including fresh burrata made daily, salumi plates and house made jams, the six-seat cheese bar has become a local favorite and fills up quickly.
