Italian Restaurants in Cardinal Valley


Select Local Merchants

Though their italian sausage and pepperoni carry robust, traditional flavors, the chefs at Mancinos Pizza & Grinders aren't afraid to get creative. On their zesty-ranch pizza, for example, they sprinkle bacon over a ranch base, and on their chicken-alfredo pizza they spread mozzarella and chicken atop creamy dollops of the familiar pasta sauce. Diners who seek three-dimensional meals but don't want to wrap their pizzas around soccer balls can bite into their choice of more than 20 types of grinders—subs filled with such treasures as barbecue pork, tuna, and salami. The family-owned business has honed its roster of italian sandwiches and pizzas throughout its 15-year history, preceding its dishes with hot wings and gooey bacon cheese fries.

Casanova Italian Restaurant's owner Leo Capezzuto is one of eleven siblings, so it's no surprise that he has made Casanova a family affair. Leo is the proprietor, and the restaurant features cheeses made by hand by his brother and ingredients sourced from his sister's store, Sapori D'Italia. All of these factors culminate in a menu of authentic Southern-Italian cuisine that showcases more than fifteen different types of pasta, such as the scialiatielli con gamberi?artisan handmade egg pasta tossed with shrimp that chefs saut? with garlic, olive oil, and fresh cherry tomatoes. To prepare the filetto al pepe verde, they simmer a dry-aged Angus filet mignon in butter, and then top the delicacy with green peppercorns and cream brandy sauce. The menu also sources seafood from renowned fish regions, culling cuts of Atlantic salmon, Pacific swordfish, and Pacific cod. Like a DJ's closet, the wine list features more than 35 labels, collecting red, whites, and sparkling wines under the same roof.
