This restaurant is hidden in a strip mall within a larger complex of stores and restaurants. We had heard that it was very good, but quite expensive. We decided to visit it for lunch a few months ago. I ordered a small pepperoni and sausage pizza and my wife ordered a pasta dish with fresh cooked vegetables in a olive... More

It's a common misconception that salame means salami! It's wonderful you enjoyed lunch a few months back -- hope to welcome you and your wife back for more "pepper" pizza. All the best, The De Grezia Family More

Had dinner here last week. Pizzaioli has a varied selection of pastas, meat and fish entrees. My husband ordered linguini and meat balls, and I chose the lasagna. Both were very generous in portions. In fact, we each brought home enough to create a second meal at home. Sauce was zesty, as were the meatballs. Very flavorful. My husband also... More

It's wonderful you and your husband got to stop by last week and see what we're all about! We're glad you both enjoyed the linguini and lasagna, Maria. Hope leftovers were just as delicious! Also, bring your wines purchased from Napacabs.com for free corkage everyday! All the best, The De Grezia Family More

Pizzaioli comes through again with yet another fabulous meal special, this time the Tomahawk steak. This steak is huge at about 20 inches long! The photo shows one actually split to share (which is more than enough for two people). Pair this with a nice wine and your all set, of course they still have their regular steak and seafood...

Pizzaioli has been a longstanding independent restaurant in Chino Hills for over 20 years. They were one of the few choices available back when we moved here in 1993. They remain consistently good, great service, and a successful business for the Chino Valley. My fave is the chicken Marsala, but they also serve up a great steak! I just recently... More

First off, Jackie, thanks for visiting us since the beginning! It's surprising to see just how much has changed since then, but the fact your support hasn't is something we truly appreciate. Whether if it's for the chicken Marsala or you new favorite, we look forward to welcoming you back. All the best, The De Grezia Family More

We visited this restaurant twice. Our experience the first night was so good, we returned the following night. One would think these were two different places. The drinks from the bar were served beautifully on Friday night. On Saturday however, the drinks lacked luster and tasted watered down. On our first night, we ordered a variety of appetizers and individual... More

Sorry to hear about that -- you should expect our meals to be consistently good no matter what you order. Likewise, it's unusual that the drinks tasted that way on the Saturday you stopped by. We take feedback like this to heart, so we appreciate your review. We hope for a chance to wow you on your third visit. All... More
