About Us

Our Story

Nicolosi’s began as a bakery in Mission Hills owned by Salvatore Nicolosi in 1952. In 1958 the first Nicolosi’s Italian Restaurant was opened on Navajo road in the San Carlos region. Ron Burner, grandson of Salvatore, and Barb Burner, his wife, have been the power couple behind the local hotspot since 2009 and have now expanded to a second location in the Gaslamp Quarter.

The new Gaslamp location will serve many of the tried-and-true Nicolosi family recipes but will also host a new variety of gluten-free and menu options. Nicolosi’s offers a vast variety of menu items perfect for every palette. As a family-owned business, we care deeply about your experience and when you walk in our doors, you become family too. Our transparent kitchen allows customers to see their food preparation from the very beginning, demonstrating our commitment to excellence. We promise the exceptional service you can expect from a small business.
