Without toppings, pizza crusts expose themselves to the public, revealing their flakier qualities and their innermost desire—to fly. Dress a disk with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine at Nonno’s Italian Restaurant in La Mesa.

For nearly five decades, Nonno’s Italian Restaurant has been pulling at the mouth strings of San Diego area residents with its menu of authentic Italian eats. Current owner and chef Gerardo Ortiz hand tosses Nonno’s pizza dough and sauces daily, fortifying the foundations of such savory pies as the pesto pizza splashed with 100% real mozzarella cheese, basil pesto, and garlic (14", $16.50), and the chicken florentine—accoutered with tender chicken breast, sundried tomatoes, and miniature Renaissance paintings of mushrooms (14", $16.50). Guest noshers can also craft their own delectable disk with one of the more than 15 pizza topping options, including asparagus, meatballs, and breaded chicken breast.

As diners tickle their tummies with Nonno’s authentic flavors, jealous nostrils can partake in the aromas of one of the eatery’s many wines, available by the glass or bottle. The chardonnay from Chile piques the palate with pineapple essence ($6.50/glass, $24/bottle), and the Spanish tempranillo ($6.50/glass, $24/bottle) glides across the tongue as smoothly as a well-greased Chiclet.

Nonno's Italian Restaurant

Since the 1960s, Nonno's Italian Restaurant has remained La Mesa's hub for classic Italian dishes and gourmet pizzas. Executive Chef Gerardo Ortiz continues the eatery's tradition with artfully plated entrees, such as eggplant parmesan and smoked wild salmon coated with vermouth cream sauce. Chef Ortiz crafts his lasagnas entirely from-scratch, layering noodles with Italian sausage and beef or, for vegetarians and cockeyed sailors preparing for a bout of fisticuffs, spinach and ricotta. Gerardo likewise makes his pizza dough and sauce in-house daily, covering them with real mozzarella and a choice of nearly 20 toppings, including meatballs and asparagus. To complement Gerardo's cuisine, Nonno's stocks an extensive wine selection that diners can enjoy by the glass or bottle.
