“Neighborhood Pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Have been going to Norton's for pizza for many years as it is close by, and pizza is good, and they make 'white' pizza which is hard to find in California. As the location is sort of out of mainstream, I frequently find it sparsely occupied except for Friday nights maybe. This is no reflection on the food; it is quite good, home style italian, and reasonably priced. I have used them for take out of catering-sized pans of great lasagna. It's hard to judge any Italian restruarant since my father-in-law was a chef, and no one compares!

“Great neighborhood place for Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

This little Italian restaurant has been in our South San Jose neighborhood for years...over 30 if I remember correctly.
Nothing spectacular about the facility itself, but the food is good, solid, traditional Italian fare.
We had the eggplant parmigiana and a chicken/pasta dish. Excellent San Francisco-style sour dough bread and outstanding service.
We've been there before and will definitely be back!!

“2 of us got sick within a couple hours of eating here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2010

Don't try the lasagna - it tasted good, but apparently wasn't, because we both got sick from it.
