This restaurant is not real Italian in any sense of the term. I hate to give a restaurant a bad or even mediocre review but that is the fate of Italian Cravings. I doubt there is an Italian in the house. So, I apologize to all involved but this would not be my recommendation for Italian food in San Clemente.

Best calzone in Southern California. If you are looking for authentic Italian food definitely need to come here.

Small restaurant right off the main drag in San Clemente (Del Mar). It's very rarely overly crowded so it's easy to get in. The food is wonderful and they will accommodate special requests. It's casual enough that you will be comfortable bringing your kids. They also deliver which is a plus! Check them out!

Great pizza at a reasonable price. Nice little outdoor patio. I wish we had sampled more of the menu, but I can recommend the pizza!

We were on way from LEGOLAND to LAX airport hotel and stopped in San Clemente to have dinner with grandparents and parents and children ages 4 and 6. We were able to find a parking spot and just walked in. We were tired and hungry and it was over the 4th of July week. At about 7pm there was not... More

We were staying in a local hotel and had headed back there and wanted a delivery. I signed up to GrubHub and ordered a pizza from Italian Cravings. It was delivered in around 40 mins and was very enjoyable.

I just happened to stumble on this restaurant and decided to try it. I was pleasantly surprised. The service was great and a great menu. I ordered the personal calzone which was enough for 2 people. It was great

IC is a great spot. Once again, a local spot that specializes in Italian basics, served with attention to detail, and great base flavors. This isn't a five star restaurant, this is a local spot that serves up really solid Italian flavors, with no lack of herbs and really good flavors. I hit this spot about once a quarter, and... More
