Nestled in the Northern San Diego County beach town of Carlsbad is the Italian kitchen, Gregorio’s. The Nelson family decided to purchase this seventeen-year-old restaurant when it was put up for sale. They had always considered it to be their “kitchen away from home”. In 2004, Gregorio’s replaced the name Spirito’s and has kept the family recipes and has added a more extensive wine list. Along with the great family recipes offered at Gregorio’s, is the at home feeling you get the moment you walk in the front door.
