One of the Best Italian Restaurants in San Clemente. Stopped in Italian Cravings Restaurant in San Clemente and loved their Lunch Special!! I ordered the Baked Lasagna and my friend ordered the Eggplant Parmigiana and both were delicious. Plus a great deal at only $8.95 and included a salad and drink! How great is that!! I saw the dinner menu and they featured a Salmon Picatta, that I must come back and try! You can find me here on the outdoor patio later this week. Thank you for a great lunch, Italian Cravings!
Disappointing fare. I gave this place several tries, and each time came away disappointed. The food is decidedly mediocre at best: greasy, not particularly tasty, and made with low-quality ingredients. To cite just one example, the meatballs -- the mainstay of any Italian restaurant -- are rubbery and taste almost like manufactured meat. I would bet that the ground beef iscombined with some non-beef substances, but frankly I'd rather not know at this point what they are (since I've eaten the meatballs a handful of times already). Even the pizzas are disappointing. They're so greasy that whenever I get takeout, I use several paper towels to sop up the excess grease before lifting a single slice to my mouth. Italian Cravings is so close to my home that I really wish I could give it a higher rating. There aren't many good Italian restaurants in San Clemente. This one is definitely not one of them.
Rude on more than one occasion. As a local business owner I know what it means to treat your customers with respect. This place has been rude to me 3 times now. Why did I go back? Because I like supporting local businesses the food us decent and I believe in second chances. The last straw wascwhen they failed to honor a coupon that they had sent out to me
Great Tasting Italian Food to enjoy with a Family. It is definetely a good place to go with a family. Not a lot of room, it is a small place, but very kids friendly. I do crave spinach ravioli with a unique dressing I cannot find anywhere else. They also have an authentic Italian Chianti, their own baked breadsticks served hot with a tomato bazil dipping sauce. Immaculate service!
Authentic Italian. My family's favorite Italian restaurant in Orange County!
