“Very busy Chicago Pizzeria in the heart of San Clemente.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

We have eaten at Selma's each of the past 3 years during our vacation to San Clemente. Our friends [who live in San Clemente] go to Selma's often, and it is popular with the locals. Our 10 year old boys enjoy the pizza and pasta at Selma's, and so do we. The boys can be big critics, so any restaurant that they visit 3 years in a row has to be good.

“Excellent Chicago Style Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2010

We ordered the lunch special, personal pan size pizza with one topping for $6.95, plus $1.85 for a side salad. Both were delicious. We also ordered a glass of the house Merlot, which was very nice with the Pizza, at $5 per glass. If you like think crusted pizza, you will love Selmas!

“Great place for casual lunch downtown San Clemente”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

First time eating there this past weekend, we enjoyed it (3 adults). I had a panini with turkey avocado, the others both had a half sandwich and side salad. Home made potato chips were nice touch, ambience good, service good, food good.

“loved the pizza and I'm Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2010

we loved the pizza, and the seasoned chips are also good. wait staff very nice, and fast. a large was only $20 something and we had plenty for late night snack and breakfast next day, even brought two slices home for my boyfriend to try. They are big slices in other words. I'm by no means the expert on Chicago pizza, so dont freak out on me if its not like the pizza you grew up with in Chicago ok!
