San Diego - Trattoria Acqua (Italian, downtown La Jolla)

We had a great experience at Trattoria Acqua Friday night. Food, Ambiance, and Service were all superb. Lobster Ravioli was the best, as recommended by other reviews. You can really taste the lobster, and that's most of the filling. I chose the Arrabiata pasta myself, and that was real good too. The quality of ingredients really made the dishes. For an appetizer we had the Filet Mignon carpaccio with arugula, which I did like. The Tiramisu was nice, but I prefer the one at Piatti nearby. Coffee was great. Portions were perfect for us - 2 dishes and an appetizer to share had no leftovers. I'll upload photos of each dish we had.

Our server was great and knowledgeful, we got everything we wanted right. We liked the atmosphere and attention to detail - my wife loved the decor and the plating used, and I enjoyed that it was tasteful but still casual. This was our first time here - we usually go to Piatti, and we plan to go to both from now on. This is the kind of place we look for to return every few months.

Anyone else who likes this place, what other dishes would you consistently recommend? I like all Italian food. Other than George's which we really like, are there any other restaurants on that row in La Jolla you'd solidly recommend? Thanks!
