Mountain Mike’s Pizza keeps belly bearings well lubricated with its selection of topping-laden pizzas, oven-kissed sandwiches, and more. Like a fleet-footed yeti, Mountain Mike’s Pizza's menu deftly scales rocky heights with its selection of mountain-themed specialty pizzas, such as the 12-inch Everest and Snowy Alps pizzas, each stacked with a savory selection of Old World pepperoni, onion, olives, and more ($17.99). With two types of crust, four sauces, and 26 toppings, diners can craft their own perfect pies.
John's Incredible Pizza Co. graces guests with acres of incandescent entertainment options and a fully stocked buffet ($9.49 value, $1.50 value for drinks). In addition to a slew of soups, salads, pasta, desserts, and traditional pizza choices, the buffet brandishes a bouquet of specialty pizza creations, including spicy peanut-butter, barbecue chicken ranch, and alfredo pizza.
It has been more than 40 years since the Medina family immigrated to Modesto, although the recipes that they use at Bel Piatto Cucina Italiana remain just as strongly rooted in Italian tradition. The lunch and dinner menus are filled with elegant pasta, seafood, veal, and steak dishes, as well as more casual calzones, which get stuffed with ingredients such as meatballs and spinach before being baked in the oven until their SPF wears off.
Wines ranging from real Italian reds to homegrown California chardonnays pair nicely with the entire spectrum of entrees, from the hearty bistecca di manzo—with wild mushrooms and a cabernet reduction accentuating a 12-ounce rib-eye steak—to the grilled salmon fresca highlighted by white wine, lemon, capers, and cream. Appetizers such as stuffed portobello mushrooms help to launch feasts.
Bel Piatto Cucina Italiana’s atmosphere is just as Italian as its food, surrounding diners with crisp white tablecloths, darkened wood, clerestory windows, and a wall-mounted wine rack.
The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.
Boasting a bevy of gooey pizza-pie options, Extreme Pizza has garnered a boatload of praise for its ability to fuse toppings without welding or undertaking genetic experiments. Frisbee-toss an indee-sized cheese disc into your well-watered mouth, such as the Paia pie, with pineapple, oranges, and Canadian bacon ($7.45+). Or try the Yard Sale, which includes sausage, pepperoni, salami, mushrooms, black olives, green peppers, red onions, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and mozzarella ($7.45+). Groups of 6 to 10 people, meanwhile, can prepare palates for the onslaught of hearty slices by prefacing them with a massive family-style salad, such as the caesar ($20.99). Others can stimulate taste buds without licking a defibrillator with a dozen X-Factors wings ($4.75 for six, $7.95 for 12).

The menu at Pizza & Beer offers generously portioned plates for meat-lovers and vegetarians alike. The show stopper pizza is stacked pie-high with salami, pepperoni, ham, linguica, bacon, sausage, and an exclamatory fistful of extra-cheesy goodness ($13.89 for a small). Mounds of pleasantly palatable produce can be found on the veggie pizza, served with garlic sauce, mushroom, onion, bell pepper, tomato, artichoke hearts, and green onion ($13.89 for a small). For custom circlesumption, customers can build their own special pizza (starting at $7.98 for a small) or calzone (up to four toppings for $6.99). In terms of ice-cold beer, the eatery plays host to an impressive lineup of domestics, imports, and microbrews, many of which arrive in glorious, pitcher-perfect fashion.
Straw Hat Pizza brings families and friends together to feast on California-style pies, signature Hot Hat sandwiches, and the crisp contents of a market-fresh salad bar. Pre-designed pizzas include The Works, whose meaty mélange of salami, ham, sausage, pepperoni, and beef ($13.99+) provides a drastic contrary to the California Veggie, loaded with lifeguard-approved zucchini, broccoli, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and garlic-cheese sauce ($13.99+). Dinner DJs can also enliven suppertime soirees by spinning their own saucy disks through toppings including meatballs, pineapple, and spicy chorizo ($10.99+). Hot Hat sandwiches ($5.29+) bury succulent sliced meats and gooey gobs of cheese in crispy signature shells, making them ideal practice tools for archaeologists in training for an excavation on the moon.
A cornucopia can’t contain the bounty of produce Fresh Choice gathers from its nearby organic farm. Instead, mountains of broccoli and spinach jut from crisp salad bars and buffets sag beneath helpings of healthy soups, pizzas, and pastas. The menu revolves around seasonal fare, showcasing specialties such as squash ratatouille in the fall and peach cobbler in the summer. Add-ons such as icelandic shrimp fortify meals with protein, and fresh fruits lend plates more color than a chameleon dressed as a clown dancing on a rainbow. To round out the menu, the staff bakes wholesome breads and muffins, which explore sweet and savory flavors with spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, and garlic. Each food station welcomes unlimited visits, helping guests to meet their daily recommendations of fruits, veggies, and awestruck gasps.
Michael Calder began his pizza-making career in 1973, when he learned how to shape authentic crusts while working at an Italian family’s pizzeria. He put his pizza-crafting expertise to work at his own place when he opened Michael’s Pizza Bar and Grill, where the kitchen prepares specialty pies such as the meat-stacked Michael’s Masterpiece. The vegetarian Green Machine comes adorned with pesto sauce, artichoke hearts, and fresh garlic, while Heart Attack Dogs arrive at tables wrapped in bacon, crowned with cream cheese and honey, and accompanied by ominous organ music. Bartenders can mix dessertinis infused with espresso to follow hearty meals.
For more than 30 years, the chefs of De Vinci’s Elk Grove have been hard at work perfecting the traditional Italian recipes that stock their deli counter. They begin every morning with their hands floury, crafting doughs that will form the base of housemade foccacia breads, cheese-filled ravioli, and custom sandwiches. Joined occasionally by a fluffy ravioli mascot in a toque, staff combine dishes into prearranged packages ready for the family dinner table or parcel out single dishes by the pint, quart, gallon, or 10-gallon hat.
While the heart of Johnny Carino's menu is rooted in genuine Italian traditions, forward-thinking creativity has birthed what they like to call their signature dishes. Led by executive chef Chris Peitersen, the seasoned kitchen staff blends fresh ingredients along with extra time to create high-quality, spiced Italian preparations. Diners will find entrees such as 16-layer lasagna with made-from-scratch sauce, and pizzas made with home-baked crust. Other signature choices include the spicy shrimp and chicken, baked stuffed mushrooms topped with house lemon basil cream sauce, and tiramisu made from the ground up. Entrees can be paired any selection from Carino's extensive wine list and drink menu.
When it came time for the team at Johnny Carino’s to come up with some new recipes, they began rifling through their personal cooking histories. Executive chef Chris Peitersen took his first kitchen job at a barbecue joint when he was 14, so he was primed to create italian baby back ribs. By infusing brown sugar barbecue sauce with balsamic vinegar imported from Modena, he’s given the marinade a more acidic bite than typical barbecue sauces. As the ribs slowly roast and char on an oak grill, he bastes on his creation before finishing the dish with a dusting of parmesan.
The ribs are one of Carino’s many menu items that follow the restaurants’ approach of classic Italian preparations modified by forward-thinking flavor combinations. Diners will find a Black Angus burger capped with mozzarella and fried pepperoni, or sautéed tilapia spiced with garlic and jalapeño. Other signature dishes include the 16-layer lasagna, Skilletinis that sizzle with spaghetti and a choice of meat, and tiramisu made from scratch.
At Vito's Ristorante, guests must fight the urge to walk into the walls. The restaurant’s gorgeous murals depict the alluring Italian countryside, serving eyes a visual feast of verdant fields, glassy waters, and marshmallow clouds. The aroma of chicken parmigiana and housemade marina sauce serenades olfactory senses from the kitchen, where chefs use time-honored culinary traditions to conjure up the Old-World flavors found in the veal marsala and linguine fra diavolo—spicy marinara over pasta, shrimp, and mussels. A new type of ravioli graces the menu every week, and past daily specials have included lamb chops with polenta and swordfish dressed in mango salsa and a musketeer hat. For a more urban, downtown vibe, Vito Ristorante’s V-Lounge hosts special events where guests can get their fill of libations and entertainment.
