At first glance, South Coast Pizza Parlors might look like an ordinary family pizza joint. The requisite video and redemption games chirp and ring near the entrance. Six big-screen televisions flicker with sporting events. But the difference is in the pizza--the kitchen crew crafts dough and sauce fresh every single day, drizzling pies with classic toppings such as green peppers and pepperoni, as well as more non-traditional options including vegan cheese and soy chorizo.
Bari’s Pasta in Santa Anna specializes in wholesome Italian food, with a specific emphasis on pasta. Specialties include the meat or veggie baked lasagna, the rigatoni, and the spaghetti with meatballs. That last one deserves some extra recognition with its chunky, slow-cooked marinara sauce and its deliciously seasoned homemade meatballs. Those looking for a fancier taste are encouraged to try the Chicken Delight: grilled chicken and onions coated liberally with homemade garlic sauce and slices of grilled tomatoes to top it all off. Serving sizes are extremely generous at Bari’s; people with a lighter stomach might end up taking leftovers home.
