Blade 1936 To Serve Modern Italian In Oceanside’s Blade-Tribune Building

Blade 1936, the newest dining destination to hit Oceanside, is scheduled to open late September with a menu that was created by beloved local Chef Mario Cassineri, who is also a partner in the restaurant.

Focusing on modern Italian flair, John Carlo Ferraiuolo (Caffè Calabria, Red Oven) will join the team as a Partner, GM and Head Pizza Chef, utilizing a custom-made Stefano Ferrara pizza brick oven from Italy.

The name Blade 1936 is a nod to Oceanside’s old newspaper, The Blade-Tribune, which occupied the space from 1936 until the 1960s. The historic building, designed by famed San Diego architect, Irving Gill, will transform into an Italian haven with rustic, wood and steel elements, while maintaining the history of the building.

Using both locally sourced and imported Italian ingredients, featured items will include classic dishes drawing inspiration from across Italy:

  • House-made Napoli style wood fired pizzas
  • Crafted semolina pastas
  • Innovative desserts, cocktails
  • Italian bottled beer, wines, and local and international beers on tap

The restaurant will have seasonal menus and daily specials, offering dinner every day and brunch on the weekend, with menus designed for sharing and a menu tailored just for kids.

See you there!
