Authentic Italian Food Served With Southern California Flair It’s time for the rest of the world to know what residents of San Clemente have known for almost 20 years. Ask anyone in town where to go for great Italian food, and they’ll tell you Sonny’s Pizza & Pasta. Known simply as Sonny’s, this charming and quaint restaurant is the local hot spot.

What is it that makes Sonny’s so successful? Sonny is a true hands-on owner. Every morning, he comes in early to prepare the sauces, all his own original recipes. Most nights he can be seen in the kitchen preparing authentic Italian pizza and pasta. Sonny’s is a family run restaurant, with Sonny in the kitchen, and his daughter Julie running the front of the house. The authentic Italian food is served with a touch of Southern California as you can dine on an open air patio, served by the beautiful Sonny’s Girls. Chef Tom Olsen has been a mainstay on the lunch shift for many years now, and is proud of the compliments the restaurant receives from the public and food critics alike.

The food is superb and affordable. Many specials are offered, and most nights have a special theme. An extensive wine list is available to complement your meal. Check out the on-line menu here, then stop in and see what everyone’s talking about. Mention "Your Restaurant Connection" and be treated to something special!
