Pizzaioli offers elegant casual dining, serving modern Italian cuisine with new American influences. Nestled in the hills of Chino, Pizzaioli has been called “a hidden gem of an Italian restaurant”. Come by and we know you will agree.

Pizzaioli specialties include USDA prime filet Mignon, fresh seafood delivered daily, and fresh pasta. In preparing all of the dishes, we maintain the highest standards in quality and freshness. Along with our enticing menu and impressive wine list, Pizzaioli also has a well-stocked martini bar featuring over 100 single malt scotches and a wide assortment of bourbons, vodkas and Tequilas. In addition, we provide full service catering for all your special events.

Pizzaioli has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from the LA Times, The Daily Bulletin, Inland Empire Business Press, The San Bernardino Sun, The Riverside Press-Enterprise and the Inland Empire Magazine. We have also received The Wine Spectator’s “Award of Excellence,” a coveted award bestowed upon the best wine lists in the world, for the last five years.

Critics and customers agree, there is no other Italian restaurant as fresh and delicious as Pizzaioli. Come dine with us today. We look forward to serving you.

Haven't been here in quite some time. The last visit, I was a little disappointed with the limited menu, and lack of a true happy hr, like yrs past.

We visited this restaurant twice. Our experience the first night was so good, we returned the following night. One would think these were two different places. The drinks from the bar were served beautifully on Friday night. On Saturday however, the drinks lacked luster and tasted watered down. On our first night, we ordered a variety of appetizers and individual... More

Sorry to hear about that -- you should expect our meals to be consistently good no matter what you order. Likewise, it's unusual that the drinks tasted that way on the Saturday you stopped by. We take feedback like this to heart, so we appreciate your review. We hope for a chance to wow you on your third visit. All... More

We're a bit disappointed we haven't been able to impress like we had in years passed. Sure, our menu might have changed. And yes, maybe the way we run our happy hours might be different.

Not only is the food is fantastic but the service is also. The menu is quite varied with your favorite Italian dishes and some you may not have tried before. The wine list is extensive and the corkage fee is only $10 if you prefer. There is outdoor dining and on occasion someone would be smoking one of the cigars... More

My friend and I use to love going to Pizzaoilis once a month for drinks and pizza. They changed the happy hour menu and the choices are not nearly as good. And the service we get has run from average to poor to downright rude. As such, we are heading to Tahoe Joe's next time for our happy hour!

This restaurant was here long before all the chain restaurants came along. I have been a customer for about 12 years. Love the food, they always accommodate you if you want to change the entrée a little. Tucked away in the Chino Spectrum it is definitely worth the time to seek it out.

Don't believe the haters. The food here is really very good, whether eating in or catering. This isn't Olive Garden. The service is equally good. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. What keeps this restaurant from being rated excellent is the ambiance. Unfortunately, it is apparent that the owners haven't invested in the restaurant in the past fifteen years. This... More

With limited choices for Italian in chino hills, pizzaoli is the default place to go for Italian. Locals go there for convinience . It is crowded, servers are over indulged teenagers with no manners. Food is either bland or salty. I prefer to drive to the OC or LA for good Italian food and service.
