Wynola Pizza & Bistro

Outstanding “Joe’s Godfather” pizza at Wynola Pizza & Bistro! Great wood fired pizza here that is so light and thin. Super easy to eat the whole thing and not feel all distended.

Ramona Lisa Pizza

Outstanding Monday 3 topping special from Ramona Lisa’s!

The Shop

I remember coming here when this place was a Chinese restaurant, not that long ago. I cannot believe what is here now! “The Shop” is a stunning full service restaurant with fantastic attention to detail. Definitely a gustatory oasis in Rancho Bernardo. Service was friendly, thorough and energetic. For my first visit I tried a lunch special personal sized deep dish pizza. It was excellent. Crust was exquisite. I can certainly see myself frequenting this place often. Outstanding food, full bar and local craft beer on tap. Highly recommended.


Excellent (small) Hot Spicy Sausage Pizza at Oggi’s in Santee!

The Slice & Pint

El Segundo Brewing Company’s “The Slice & Pint” is a fantastic new eatery in old downtown El Segundo! As the name implies, they simply specialize in serving some great pizza, etc., along with their fine selection of local craft beers. Highly recommended!

Domino’s Pizza

Outstanding “MeatZZa” from Domino’s in Ramona!

Tony Pepperoni Pizzeria

Outstanding “Meat Eater” pizza at Tony Pepperoni’s!

Wynola Pizza & Bistro

I absolutely adore this restaurant on the side of the road in Wynola, somewhat between Santa Ysabel and Julian. There’s two distinct indoor seating areas with a very nice outdoor courtyard in the center. Order at the counter or bar, they give you a number on one of those metal stand things and find a seat. The staff and service here is excellent. Plus full bar.  

The pizzas here are excellent. Very thin crust, it is easy to eat the whole thing yourself. The Caesar salads are sometimes inconsistently made. When made good, among the best I’ve had with lots of cheese. Most recently I had their wood-fired lasagna which was very good. Served with a dinner salad that contained an excessive amount of carrots. I could sense my vision improving while driving home.
