I brought my family who was visiting from out of town to this place with high hopes. Wow, were we extremely disappointed by poor service, food that tasted pre-packaged, and less than sanitary conditions! I'll never go back there again, even if they are the only restaurant in town open. Digorno's Pizza from Ralph's and Ragu sauce in the jar would have been a better deal! Very disappointing!

Love this place! Great service and great food. I've eaten here at least 5 times and each time the food was YUMMY and the service was warm and friendly. The atmosphere is intimate and quaint. Seriously, I live in Santee, and this is the perfect place to have take the family when I don't feel like cooking. Oh, go to restauraunt.com and get a discount!

They have the best pizza!! Its not too busy but their pizza is the bomb!! I just called and asked if they had any carryout specials & they had a large for only $9.99. Its waaay better than pizza hut for the same price! Surprisingly enough I have 4 kids & its their favorite pizza too!

I had heard from several people that this was a good place to eat. I'm not sure what they had, but I wasn't impressed. I brought my friend and when her soup arrived it was cold and the vegetables were undercooked. Then when her eggplant parmesan arrived it looked like it had been sitting and reheated. When she told the waitress that the soup was cold, she offered to reheat it, but I wonder why the soup wasn't hot in the first place considering the restaurant wasn't busy. Then when she complained about the eggplant, the waitress acted like she was making an issue when there wasn't one. We were not offered a discount or a refund but she wasn't able to eat the food so it makes me wonder if they actually want repeat business or if she was given horrible food on purpose. My salad and shrimp scampi were delicious, but I won't come back because every order should be edible. I'm so disappointed. I will also be sure to tell everyone I know who I recommended this restaurant to before I actually ate here to consider somewhere else because this is not authentic Italian food. I would recommend Sima's Europen Cuisine in Colton. It's a long drive but I have been there several times and it is well worth it. Ask for Alfred.

Under new ownership so we stopped by for dinner Jan. 2010. Our order (for 5) took quite a while to get out to us ( 4 people behind us got their before us, and they came in after us). I ordered the roast beef sandwich because they were out of pastrami. It's a huge one, great crusty roll, loaded with veggies. Fries were a la carte, crinkle cut fried fries. Mr. ordered their homemade Italian sausage sub. That was really good too. Side order again of breaded fried onion rings (so very few to an order). Kids had their kids menu giant ravilois in marinara and fettucini alfredo. They were good, but probably not homemade. They forgot the salad w/the pasta so they gave it to us to go. We had lots of food we all took some leftovers home. We were pleased with it overall.
The place is small, limited seating, small tables and huge pasta plates (heavy ones too!). Maybe a carpet cleaning would be nice, something smelled "dirty" in there.

hello every body out there just stopped in to italia ristorante and found out it has new owners. The service was superb and the food was amazing. They finally have their tv working.... so you're not watching a computer monitor anymore... I sampled thier new chicago style deep dish pizza and I couldnt get enough of it.

And have always had great service and good food. Highly recommend Italia Pizza. Their menu is varied and excellent and this is far more than a pizza joint. Especially enjoyed the chicken pasta entrees.

I went to this restaurant on 03/29/09 and i ordered Linguine with clams. when i got my meal was really gross. I waited for almost an hour, i was expecting something good for the waiting but i end up getting a disgusting meal. i paid wait to much for what i got. I will definitely not recommend this restaurant at all. A driver that used to work at this restaurant suggest me to come again any day of the weekdays and ask for the new cook Caesar.

Horrible Service - Gift of Food Poison! - lmerritt - Today
This restaurant was absolutley the worst restaurant I have been to in quite some time. My family and I ordered a simple pepporoni pizza and speghetti and meatballs. After waiting nearly an hour for our food (throughout that time our waitress stopped by our table to apologize and to let us know that she continues to check on our food), our waitress finally realized that our ticket never got to the cooks and she would need to take our order once again! She assured us that our food would be done in 15 minutes and would give us a mere 20% discount for the mistake (we were so hungry that we decided to wait - that was a mistake). The food was greasy and tasteless. The worst part is, my husband awoke at 3:30am with food poisoning (thank god my 4 year old didn't eat some meatballs)! He missed one day of his life because this restaurant can't have clean food, good meat, or cooked meat. They may have redecorated the dining area, but the kitchen isn't quite so pretty.

Probably one of the best subs i've had in a while...in fact i ordered another one because it was so good... Then i washed that down with an ice cold hefewiezen.... Pasta is great( i recomend the Riggotoni) pizza is really fresh and the cheese is GREAT! Bring a friend or bring the family, either way you will be coming back for more!

The food is edible, but nothing to write home about. You'd get better Italian at the Olive Garden a mile down the road. The only thing I like about this place is that they serve pitchers of beer (Sierra Nevada... mmmm...). That's what keeps me comin' back.

This was never a really good food place but it was edible. After 8 years of living in Santee with limited restaurants I would pick up some quick meals. Recently I called and ordered rigatoni's and meatballs and a lasagna dinner. I specifically clarified my order when the person who took the order read it back. I pick up the food, get home to find some tubular pasta with red sauce and crumbled beef that was runny water. I called the restaurant and said I must have a received a wrong order and there was complete silence. I asked for a manager and a woman gets on the phone and she is more insulted that I even bothered calling. Bottom line, my problem though she offered to give me a 20% discount on the next order. There will never be another order. Don't waste your time; food's not that good to begin with and management doesn't frankly care what you end up.

Italia's has that animated, comfortable atmosphere of a mom-and-pop restaurant, the kind of place you can't find anymore. The food is fantastic, the salads are fresh, and the pasta/pizza is far better than simple fast-food pizza. Try it on my reccommendation!

Italia really has ok pizza. They have really good cheese, but they don't use much sauce. Lately they have been stingy with the cheese and the crust has been on the burnt side. There pasta is mediocre. They do have a really good week day lunch special with soup, salad, pasta and pizza.
