Great staff that loves to banter. The pies are authentic and delicious. I've taken some to work [Santa Ana] and everyone wanted to know where the amazing pizza could be bought!

Great Food. Go for Lunch if you want to get in without a wait. Or early dinner. Dinner can be a long wait. There's parking on the street above. Great Pizza. Great salad. My favorite dressing ever. Super garlicky and anchovie.

You can't beat the Monday night spaghetti special but get there early because it does fill up. If you have to wait, enjoy a glass of wine while sitting on the patio. It's well worth the wait. No one does spaghetti sauce like Sonny and the garlic bread is to die for! The lasagna is the best anywhere around and... More

If you enjoy meaty red sauce with losts of garlic, like the Sicilians do, then you will love Sonny's Restaurant. I have been dining at Sonny's for almost 20 years. It has never failed to be an excellent meal! Service is great and very casual, no reservations are necessary but be prepared to wait if you go during prime dinner... More

Great food. Great service. Super lunch deals. Best restaurant in San Clemente hands down. We love the pizzas, the eggplant Parmesan, baked rigatoni, anti pasta to name just a few favorites. Keep up the good work Sonny and crew!!

We enjoyed our meal at Sonny's and took my sister-in-law who was visiting from Boise, Idaho. The pizza is terrific and we also had manicotti which was delicious. It is a relaxed atmosphere and even the two little kids we had with us enjoyed their meal. I always look forward to going to Sonny's - so does my family!

We eat here everytime we are in town. Great thin crust pizza. They make it without cheese for my daughter who is allergic to dairy. They charged $2 for pineapple on half a pizza. and didn't tell us until we saw it on the bill. That was a little steep but otherwise the prices are reasonable. Plenty of choices for... More
