Ate here for the first time and we were thrill with the service and great food. The service was extremely attentive and personable. Food quality was excellent. Everyone in our party raved about their meal. Portions were large. The garlic bread that comes with each meal was really good and the anti pasta Salad our party of 4 shared was... More

We have wanted to come here because of the great reviews and history ( family owned, home made sauces, etc.). Had dinner early Sunday evening and it was not good. Waited at least 10 minutes after being seated to see a waitress. Once she arrived, she was nice and took our order. The house Chardonnay is a reasonable $7.00/glass and... More

First time to this restaurant and it was a great experience. The garlic bread was really fantastic but as an appetizer it filled us up - we ended up taking 3/4 of our meal home (which isn't all that bad because now we have a delicious lunch waiting for us today). Pasta was yummy and the wait staff was eager... More

We in town for the weekend and asked around for a place to go for local pizza. It was a odd time in the day so we only ordered a pizza. They do half's of white and red sauces. Both were great but really liked the white with spinach. We wanted to get something extra so we tried the homemade... More

We took our entire family to Sonny's based on the reviews on tripadvisor but I have to say I was disappointed in the quality of food and the service. We had to split up our group as we had 11 people which was fine but one of our tables were done eating an hour before the other one and we... More

We wet to Sonny's pizza based on the #1 ratings on Trip advisor. We had intended to split a pizza but after we looked at the menu decided to try the lasagna and sausage and peppers pasta. Both dishes were delicious. We both had to bring half of it home. The garlic bread was also very tasty. Atmosphere is very... More

We stopped in for dinner on a Wednesday and were lucky to find they had a special on lasagne. We both had the veggie version and couldn't believe how big the servings were. It was filled with veggies and cheese and yummy sauce. Such a hit, we went back Saturday and dh ordered the same thing! I tried the Italian... More

Been visiting here for over twenty years and have walked away with complete satisfaction every time. Having visited all fifty states and tried numerous pizza, this ranks near the top of quality dishes in New York & Chicago. Admittedly we favor the thin crust style and Sonny's provides us with complete satisfaction. Although we've sampled many of the various pastas,... More

Sonny's has a warm, friendly atmosphere. The waitress was delightful. My lemony pasta was delicious. I would have liked some veggies along with it.

This is one of my favorite spots in San Clemente. They have great pizza and unique pasta dishes. They have a nice family atmosphere during the day and is still a nice place to have a dinner for two.
