About Us

Our Culinary Journey

Nestled in the iconic El Cortez Hotel, Osteria Cotto e Mangiato is more than just a restaurant – it’s an experience. Crafted by the renowned Andrea Provino, who has opened a multitude of restaurants in San Diego, this establishment encapsulates his passion for Italian cuisine and love for the city.

​Passion for Authentic Italian Food

With an aesthetic that combines the rustic brick ambiance and the Italian tricolors, our space is a harmonious blend of old-world charm and contemporary flair. As the pioneer Antipastini Restaurant and Bar in San Diego, our aim is to transport our guests straight to the bustling streets of Italy with every bite.
