Great Neighborhood Standard

Many of us from work eat here semi-regularly for lunch. I've also eaten here for dinner several times with my wife. The food is usually excellent. The sandwiches and pizza are personal favorites. There is tremendous value in getting the salad / pizza lunch combo. Here you will find a small... read more

A nice friendly neighbor place. We always order pasta but the pizza looks good too. The employees are friendly and fast. It is great family resturant. The place is smaller so you may have a wait it weather prevents the patio from being available.

I've been visiting Sonny's for a number of years and it is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Des Moines. I haven't reviewed it until now because they are always busy and honestly don't need the hype but I felt others needed to know what they're missing. If you're looking for a warm and cozy atmosphere to get out... More

Awesome thin crust pizza with a tangy sauce! Piping hot and really tasty. Great bartender as well. We've only had pizza and salad but everything looks and smells good. The dining room is small so get there early. The place gets packed and the bar area is small.

I always think the smaller pizza is too little but not so. Service was very good. Like the atmosphere. Maybe a tad pricy but no where outrageous.

My husband & I had dinner there for our anniversary on June 26th. The meals were great, service was good. Our drinks were awesome. But the bad odor in the restaurant was VERY BAD. It smelled like a combo of bad grease & bad mold. We will try this place one more time. If the odor is still there, we... More

We have been here a few times now. The service is always exceptional. Everyone is very friendly, relaxed and attentive. It's cozy in the winter with a fireplace, and very comfortable in the summer with a very nice outdoor patio. The food is great! The pizza some of the best I've ever had. Great wine selection. We will definitely be... More

This is one place that you'll love for it's pizzas. They make really good pizzas that are perfectly sized for a single person. The ambience is very good, and the people there make you feel welcome. Apart from pizzas, they also serve excellent pastas. This was the preferred lunch destination everytime our team went out for lunch (at less than... More

After living in the area for over 3 years & passing by this place often, we finally decided to give it a try thanks to the good reviews we read about it. We got there around 5:30 on Saturday night & we were seated right away. Those who came in after us weren't so lucky. We heard people getting told... More
