One of my favorite Italian restaurants

They have my favorite salad, their dressing is so good! All their dishes are amazing. And their house Chianti is killer!!!!! There is usually a wait so be prepared and order the wine and some of their garlic cheese bread.

This was recommended by a friend who used to live nearby so on a recent drive through the area I stopped here for dinner. I had an eggplant and ravioli special that was really very good. It reminded me of places I've eaten growing up in NJ and the servers were really sweet. Overall I would eat here anytime I'm... More

I've been here a couple of times. I really like the Caesar salad and pasta with sausage. The calamari is too spicy. It can get crowded and loud. I like it best when not crowded and it's very pretty at night with the lights. Can be romantic if not crowded. It's s family owned business and it's nice to support... More

I don't know, it's just me, but I think I'm in Hawaii when it's warm, and beautiful and we sit outside in the patio. The pasta is the best. I always have stuffed shells pasta. It's just such a pleasure to eat here when we're in town. Service is great. Parking can be a little challenging, but look around on... More

I had the lasagna and I was very happy with it. The staff was, as always, very helpful. This is the place to go in San Clemente for Italian food.

Make sure you get there early. This place can get packed fast! Tasty food For sure. Beer and wine are ok. It can cost some coin. But I think it's worth it. The staff is helpful and nice. But some times they can be rude. Perfect in the summer time to eat on the patio and enjoy the California air.... More

We had pizza take-out from sonny's one evening. The pizzas - one meat & one veggie was above average, but the salad I had was simply delicious. All the components & the dressing of the salad just complimented each other so well - I can still taste the deliciousness of it.

How can a restaurant be out of ice and serve warm drinks? Especially when there is a convenient store across the street? I ordered the stuffed chicken with Marsal sauce. It had so much sauce it was like soup. Even the waiter said " oh my they over did it".The sauce was horrible. It will be a very long time,... More
