If you even just passing through San Clemente, you MUST stop to eat at Sonny's! Not expensive, very casual, sometimes a wait but very worth it.

The service is excellent, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is pure, relaxed San Clemente...the perfect beachtown pizzeria. But they have so much more than pizza! The pastas, the fabulous beer selection and appetizers will keep you coming back. Great patio... More

Sonny's Pizza is one of the best in SoCal, if you are a fan of ultra thin crust, a delicious garlicky sauce and fresh ingredients. I started going to Sonny's about two years ago and absolutely love their pizza - so much that I never tried anything else. The service can a bit slow for large groups - but there's... More

Recent Early dinner this past Sunday. Table of 4. just ordered Pizza. Customized pizza toppings (they invite you to do that) - Pizza crust is really good, toppings were a good combination with really good taste.

Have tried Sonny's numerous time - after all, people wait for a long time. It has always turned out to be an average meal at best. Don't know what the fascination is.

The best southern Italian style food in San Clemente. My wife and I ate there two of the three days while we were in town, first with my adult son and the next day with just my wife. The food, the service & friendliness of the establishment is phenomenal. I would definitely return and highly recommend it.

Wait staff very good. Food preparation was done well, but found the quality just okay: fettuccini alfredo - pasta cooked properly, sauce poor; gnocchi prepared properly but not "exciting"; spaghetti with sausage and marinara just okay.
