We happened in here on our final night in San Clemente, and were very pleasantly surprised. The guy playing guitar was very good and not so loud as to prevent dinner conversation. All four of us LOVED our food, and our server even had the chef whip up some cocktail sauce, which they don't normally serve. The server went waaay... More

We ordered a thin crust pizza expecting a crispy thin crust. What we received was a thin soft crust. I don't know if the usual "Chicago" pizza is a crispy crust or a soft crust. The toppings were all quite delicious.

Chicken panini and Italian Salad were delicious. Their ice tea machine was broken so had to settle for water.

We love Selma's pizza. Our family looks forward to eating pizza when we arrive in San Clemente. We always get extra pizza so we have leftovers to bring to the beach the next day. We also enjoy the wings.

Love the deep dish pizza. It reminds me of my home town Chicago. Good service, lee minds me of a sports bar. Their sandwiches and salads are also tasty.

Great marinara sauce. We ordered the flat bread with humus first. I'm not a humus fan, but this turned me. The pizzas were really good and fresh.

Decided to come here tonight with my wife and two kids. We called ahead to check on the wait. The hostess put me on hold for a second to check. Came back and there was no wait for the patio. Great. We get there and they offer us a booth. Also great. Sat for 8-10 minutes before our server came... More
