Regularly mentioned around these parts is Solare. It will give you the wine bar and Italian restaurant in one. Easy street parking and you're in the interesting Liberty Station district which the site of the former Naval Training San Diego.
Also I should mention 3rd Corner Wine Shop a combination wine shop and restaurant. A very good selection of wines and if you buy one they charge $5 corkage and serve it in quality stemware. I actually recommend it for lunch. Either location, Encinitas or OB is good.
