There are many Italian restaurants in San Diego's popular Gaslamp Quarter, so it is clearly a case of survival of the fittest. De Medici Cucina Italiana has endured and continues to win new fans who enjoy the simple Northern Italian cuisine in an elegant atmosphere. The entrées in Northern Italian cooking tend to be heavier on the meat than their Southern Italian cousins. There are specials daily, and recent offerings included veal chops, a Risotto ai Frutti di Mare and Classic Osso Buco.
