Great busy little Italian Restaunt with lots of patio seating. Service was very fast and efficient. Waitress didn't miss a beat. Food was very good. Wine list lacked but was okay . Would go tonight again if I could

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.

I absolutely LOVE pasta. But I only like it with butter (if you cannot tell I'm a very picky eater.) The pasta was the best EVER! My family said they had the best sauces they have ever had. I been there a few times and most off the servers and really nice but there's one that you want to avoid.... More

While having dinner at Sonny's, I picked up a bottle of their sauce they sell that sits on every table. Just out of curiosity, I started to read the ingredients. What I read was Cottonseed Oil, NO sign of Olive Oil on the label! This is the same sauce they serve in their restaurant!!! An Italian restaurant that doesn't cook... More

Several different groups recommended Sonny's at the inn where we were staying. Sonny's is known for their pizza. Their garlic bread is also very good and we recommend that as an appetizer. Their pizza is very good and they allow you to order half and half combos so we like their flexibility. We still think the House of Pizza in... More

Read the previous reviews and went. Ordered the medium pizza--not very big for the price of $14. Menu said it had fresh mushrooms--but they looked like they were out of a can. Pizza tasted alright, seemed kinda salty. If it were better I wouldn't have minded paying $14 for the on the small side pizza, enough for 1 person, questionable... More

I have been going to Sunny's since I was 6 so we are talking 1985, and every time I go back it is always the same. Great Food, Great Service, Hot Waitresses, and an experience that you will not soon forget. I usually order the Roman Orgy Pizza and the Chicken Parm, but I have also had their Tortellini and...

We are Chicago pizza lovers, but this comes close. And that chopped salad IS...THE...BEST! Order it immediately when you sit down. You will not be sorry. I highly recommend this place. It's worth the drive from anyplace in Orange County to get decent places. No other place as impressed us as much.
