Marechiaro’s is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in San Diego’s East County! Situated conveniently on Olde Hwy 80, right off I-8 and Lake Jennings Park Road. I’ve visited many times but have always ordered one of their outstanding composed pasta dishes. This time, while there in the early afternoon, I elected to order a lunch special pizza & salad. So happy that I did, it was excellent. Crust was perfect, with a nice chew, yet light and easy to eat. I downed the whole thing without feeling all distended afterwards. My topping choices of Italian sausage, onions and bell peppers was perfect. Looked and tasted great. Highly recommended.
