Italian Chic

Mario Cassineri

BiCE, San Diego

Francesca Penoncelli

BiCE, San Diego

For fine dining in the Gaslamp, those in the know head straight to BiCE, the U.S. outpost of the chic Northern Italian eatery where Milan-born chef Mario Cassineri’s modern spin on classic Italian dishes is inspired by Southern California’s local bounty.
