Vincenzo brought the fine traditions of the cuisine of Italy to downtown San Diego almost 30 years ago. His passion for cooking began in his mother’s kitchen. There he began to understand the beauty of using seasonal ingredientsfrom the local area and applying the classical techniques to create wonderfully delicious meals. His next steps toward becoming a restaurant professional began when he started working in a local bakery at age 12.
Greystone Prime Steaks and Seafood is a restaurant built on those traditions and elevated by a constant pursuit of excellence. Through dedication, hard work, and creativity we strive to provide great experiences for our guests everyday. Whether you come to enjoy Wagyu beef, exotic wild game, fresh seafood, hand crafted pastas or our award winning wine list our professional and accommodating staff are here to make your experience a memorable one.
Vincenzo’s passion for cuisine has earned us fans from all over the United States and the world. His passion for wines has earned us accolades from Wine Spectator magazine every year since our inception in 1999. Throughout the restaurant and bar you will see nods to his other passions and pursuits as well. Vincenzo was the owner of pedigree thoroughbred “Skip to the Stone” (18 starts for 4 wins, 1 place, and 2 shows) winner of the 2001 Bayshore at Aqueduct and the Baldwin Stakes at Santa Anita Park.
