Ciao Baby! Authentic Sicilian Delights in La Jolla
Sicilia Bella is one of La Jolla's hidden gems and we feel pretty lucky to have this foodie heaven right next door to Hi Sweetheart. Sicilia Bella opened its doors in February of 2015 and owners Sidne & Benedetto (Benny) Marchese have been serving up the perfect cappuccino, homemade biscotti and deliciously al dente pasta ever since.
Stop in to their cafe for breakfast or lunch and you'll be greeted with a warm and friendly, "Ciao!" They have a great menu of salads, soups, pasta, and paninis, as well as cafe drinks and pastries. Actually, this month they are coming out with a whole new menu, but it will revolve around the same categories. There is also an Italian mini market in their space too! You can buy all sorts of imported Italian packaged foods to take back home.
Our favorites at Sicilia Bella are the Spicy Italian Panini and the Sicilia Bella Salad. They are to die for. Honestly, that panini is probably the best panini/sandwich we've ever tasted. We often stop over for some tea and coffee to take back to the shop so we have something to sip on throughout the day. We promise that anything you order at Sicilia Bella will knock your taste buds out of the park. You can enjoy it inside their cute space or outside under the red umbrella tables.
Go and try Sicilia Bella the next time your hungry. ;)
Xoxo Hi Sweetheart
