"De Medici opened years
ago, one of the original restaurants in the area, and has always been a
popular destination. The dining room's interior is chic and comfortable. Large, comfortable booths,
which are reminiscent of seating in Las Vegas showrooms, frame the room.
A heated patio is available for outdoor seating. The restaurant is
owned by Sal Vitale, a dapper, well-dressed genial man
who exudes hospitality. He greatly enjoys pleasing his guests. 'I want
my restaurant to be the kind that Frank Sinatra or
Dean Martin would have liked to dine at,' Vitale said. De'Medici serves
some of the best Italian
cuisine in the Gaslamp.
It is expensive but well worth it."
