Good as it gets we have been going there for 20 years the food is always been consistently wonderful. Still my favorite thing is the Sonny's origin pizza thin crust extra crispy. Along with Sony's salad with homemade Italian dressing and gorgonzola cheese. The best through the years the best

Great food. Great service (one super waitress after the next). Super lunch deals. Still up there as one of the very best restaurant in San Clemente hands down. We love the pizzas, the eggplant Parmesan, baked rigatoni, anti pasta to name just a few favorites. My daughter goes crazy for the desserts, especially the "Grasshopper"! I try to come to... More

Stopped on the way between San Diego and Los Angels. We're surprised by this small family Italian restaurant, great food and smiley service.

Celebrated our son's birthday here on a Sunday evening. Sat on the patio, almost too hot with the heaters on, a bit cool with them off. Pitcher of Left Coast Trestles to start, a couple of pizzas and some pasta, cannoli for dessert. Had the Napoli pizza with chicken which was pretty rich with all the gorgonzola. The other was...

I was visiting a friend in San Clemente and we ordered a pizza to go. Got it home..it was hot and good. When we picked it up at around 5PM, the place was full. People know a good place to eat. We will be ordering more pizzas.

On a recent trip to California from New Jersey we visited Sonny's for dinner. My son who is a marine at Camp Pendleton said it is his favorite place. We agree: great service, warm atmosphere, and good food. The portions were very generous and everyone liked their meal. So if you are in San Clemente and looking for good Italian... More

I moved out of the San Clemente area many years ago but I still visit regularly. For local dining for lunch or dinner, Sonny's tops my list. The pizza here rates very high with me but I've ventured into some of the other items on the menu and found everything else I've tried, is excellent. I've never had a problem... More

On my way back from Laguna Beach to San Diego, my friend and I wanted to get a bite to eat. I'd been to several San Clemente eateries, but none as note worthy as Sonny's Italian Food. I've been here before, but this visit proved to be the best! The butternut squash ravioli with pumpkin seeds and a hint of... More
