Hi there! We are Elisa and Michele and Balsamico is our most recent venture. We wanted to represent our city in Italy and bring an extremely authentic Italian flavor to San Diego. We offer you Italian authenticity from a family owned business directly from Italy, from the city where Balsamic Vinegar was invented. All specialty ingredients are imported from Italy. At Balsamico's, happiness is homemade!
Meet Elisa and Michele! We grew up in Italy and stayed there into our adulthood. However, a few years ago, we decided to join the rest of our family here in San Diego. Our strong passion for food and our Italian roots, led us to the opportunity of opening Balsamico.
We've made sure to incorporate our native country into our menu developing and crafting authentic recipes that are true to our homeland. The region of Italy we are from, Emilia Romagna, is known for Balsamic Vinegar, Parmesan Cheese, prosciutto and other cold cuts, so we try to celebrate these regional delicacies in each dish we serve. We are a family owned restaurant through and through and we are very proud of that. We’re big on authenticity, but we’re also big on using fresh ingredients and making everything we can from scratch (the things we don’t, we import from Italy). At Balsamico we really truly believe that happiness is homemade, so join us for an unforgettable experience.
