The enticing aromas of baked breads waft out from the open kitchen, spilling into the cheerful dining room speckled with red-checkered tabletops. Here, cooks have been doling out signature Chicago-style pan pizzas for more than 20 years, as well as a selection of thin-crust pies, gluten-free offerings, and hearty Italian sandwiches. They adorn handmade dough with fresh toppings and pure mozzarella cheese or layer toasted italian rolls with succulent slices of slow-cooked beef.

Outside the restaurant, a wooden awning stretches out over a front patio, where diners can enjoy the fresh air, barring rain or Mother Nature's decision to get rid of her day-old air first.

Peppino's menu of family-style portions provides more savory pairings than grandma could shake a slotted spoon at. Ease a land lover into the seafood sampler, composed of halibut, shrimp, scallops, and salmon atop a bed of angel-hair pasta infused with a garlic-basil tomato sauce and a splash of white wine ($21.95), or teach the young ones the true meaning of antipasto with a piled-high salad of salami, capicola, ham, mortadella, provolone, red onions, black olives, tomatoes, pepperoncini, kitchen sinks, roasted peppers, and mixed greens ($9.95).

Craig Gandolph entered the deli business in Long Island, making the sandwiches he’d always eaten growing up in New York. When love brought him to Salt Lake City, he missed the flavor of his hometown. So he opened the first Gandolfo’s New York Delicatessen and named his sandwiches after the Big Apple locales that he missed. Today, his little sandwich shop has grown to encompass dozens of franchises across the United States, slinging sandwiches from both brick-and-mortar joints and gridlocked food trucks.

The Mission Viejo location, one of four in California, is owned and operated by sisters Yami and Elizabeth Marin, according to a 2009 article in the Orange County Register. Yami's husband grew up in Queens and helped her discover deli food during many East Coast trips to visit his family. Inside the restaurant she shares with her sister, red accent walls, exposed ductwork, hardwood floors, and photographs of New York landmarks work together to transport diners to a New York deli.

Restaurateur Salvatore S. D'Abbusco was born in Naples, but traveled to the United States at the age of 24 to marry a woman from Philadelphia, with whom he'd fallen in love on a cruise. He wanted to bring the tastes of Italy to his new home and founded Salvatore Cucina Italiana more than 20 years ago.

His chefs toss pasta dishes made from traditional Italian recipes with italian cheeses, shellfish, chicken, and lamb. They handcraft tiramisu and blend, cut, and fold their own dough for manicotti. Sommeliers complement the extensive menu with an array of white and red wines from Tuscany, Sicily, and California, for a greater blend of international flavors than UN potluck parties. Each meal begins as servers lay complimentary bruschetta, in lieu of traditional bread, onto white-clothed tables arranged under ornate gilded lamps and pasta-covered walls.

Bonafede-family matriarch Anita started JoJo's Pizza Kitchen more than four decades ago, and her discerning taste for ingredients is still identifiable in the menu. Though her son Joe, who napped on flour sacks in the back of the restaurant as a child, now runs the eatery, fresh basil and plum tomatoes grown in Stanislaus County still release aromas that hint at sun-soaked furrows. Through a dining room window, guests catch glimpses of chefs tossing freshly risen dough for pizzas or smaller chefs for their adorable giggles. They grate fresh parmesan cheese as wine cooks slowly down with mushrooms on the stovetop and chicken marinates in lemon and garlic. Servers bustle past, filling glasses with house wines or draft beers.

Established in 1970, Coto Valley Country Club enriches the lush landscape of the Coto De Caza Valley with acres of family-friendly facilities dedicated to sports, fitness, and relaxation. Atop the blue-and-green plane of 10 tennis courts, players can hug the baseline, return heated serves, or weave yellow ball fuzz into the net during friendly matches or lessons from one of the resident aces. Idyllic trees and rustic riding trails surround the equestrian center, where horses bound over hurdles at the show-jumping course or dart across the polo field. The club also offers a variety of fitness activities and amenities, from boot-camp and karate classes for keeping bodies in shape to massage therapists for assuaging the lingering pain from napping on the elliptical machine. As a more tranquil alternative, guests can always simply laze by the poolside or stroll the fragrant gardens before unwinding with a drink at the bar or an alfresco meal on the outdoor patio.
