Piazza 1909 is bringing back to life the original la Jolla beach house named "The Brodiaea" that was formely built in 1909. It has been restored so it can remain a nostalgic
setting for residents and visitors to enjoy. Thus, we can all imagine
the beginings of this gentle, beautiful village by the sea.
The word "Piazza" in italian refers to an open space in the center of public life. It is the very core of the comunity, where everyone gather to observe and be observed.

“ EXCELLENT !!! The BEST !!! Thank you, Stefano and staff, for an unforgettable evening at your restaurant filled with delicious, authentic, beautifully prepared cuisine, generous amounts of prosecco, lovely ambiance (love the twinkle lights), made for a magical Birthday celebration surrounded by family and friends. We were a group of ten and everyone truly enjoyed their meal and service I am looking forward to returning as soon as I possibly can.”

“Tried this for the first time after randomly walking by on my way to get groceries. This is an absolute gem. We popped in on a Saturday night, got a table no problem. This is typically unheard of at restaurants serving food this good. Had the burrata, delicious! Then the gnocchi, and gorgonzola pear pizza. All of the food was outstanding. We will be back.”
— Julie H., Cayucos
Chef Stefano blends traditional Italian cuisine to more contemporary unique dishes with love and passion.
Stefano has transported the essence of his Milan birthplace to the beautiful setting of San Diego opening three successful restaurants, before Piazza 1909, in La Jolla.
As a native who knows the nice ties of Mediterranean dining, Chef Stefano prides himself in preparing everything from scratch. His Northern Italian cuisine blends traditional Italian dishes with unique creations, implementing the concept of “slow food”, a new trend in Europe. He prepares many inviting specialties, such as the “Asparagus Ravioli in a saffron and speck sauce”, stuffed with butternut squash, Italian sausage, in a browned butter sauce with poppy seeds or “Tagliolini ai Frutti di Mare”, seafood handmade Spaghetti and our favorite: “Pesce al Sale”, catch of the day covered in rock salt and cooked in the oven, to capture all the natural fish moister.
There is lots of contagious positive energy in Stefano’s personality and we wish it will touch you, too!
We take pride on where we source the ingredients we use in our recipes. Most of our products are locally farmed and organic.
