The Vision

Strozzi So-Cal Italian opened our doors early 2014 featuring family inspired Italian recipes from our very own Nonna Losacco.  Nonna had a vision of one day sharing the family's decades old recipes with the community because she felt everyone deserves fresh, handmade meals made with that extra bit of love. Thus Strozzi's So-Cal Italian was born, in her honor. Staying true to her philosophy, all of our dishes are married with locally curated produce and beautiful imported ingredients from our Italian oils to artisanal meats, spices and cheese.  We make our pasta by hand and cook it to order.  We offer a fine selection of local craft brews and wines for those needing a little libation to accompany their sausage cravings and a collection of desserts made from scratch for those needing a sweet treat.

The Restaurant

The restaurant is situated within the front portion of a renovated mixed-used masonry warehouse with wood, concrete and stone interior features that give the restaurant a utilitarian feel with vibrant pops of color that warm the space.  The modern, yet raw design materials and aesthetic compliments the rugged, but carefully handcrafted inspiration behind the menu.

Opening in Barrio Logan and serving our local community has truly allowed Nonna’s vision to come to fruition and we are continually inspired by her legacy every day. We hope that our community experiences and enjoys a little bit of Italy with a lot of family inspiration!
