I have been coming here for years now and still the best in the area. I recommend to anyone visiting and take clients when I can. The drink specials are great, but you can't beat 1/2 off bottle of wine night. Another local tip: If you buy your wine from "Napa Cabs" and get the sticker there is no corking... More

We honestly don't know where to begin, Garth -- thanks for the support all these years! It truly made us smile to read how much you and your clients enjoy the wine at our place.

We only found this place by accident but we are sure glad we did, it's supper friendly and the food selection and drinks are great. We will try it for dinner soon

Delicious main entrees and pizza with an extensive wine list. Good for families and friends get-togethers... Try the chicken or eggplant parm or the gnoche for something different (sorry I don't know how to spell gnoche). Pair that with a nice glass of Cabernet.

No worries at all -- you were actually pretty close! It's spelled "gnocchi." But no matter how you spell it, it's wonderful you enjoyed your meal here. We can't wait to welcome you back. And of course we'll have that glass of Cabernet ready just for you. All the best, The De Grezia Family More

This place has been around a long time. It's a rare "local find" with quality service, great food and a long history. With all the "chain" restuarants in the Chino Valley now, it's nice to relax and enjoy a "family" run establishment. I recommend the Jalapeno Shrimp Appetizer. My mouth is watering just writing about it. Also, don't forget to... More

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

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!

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.
