15870 Soquel Canyon Pkwy, Ste E,
So, I'm craving pizza tonight and I remember a friend mentioning that Nonno's Pizzeria in Chino Hills has been on her list of places to try. So, a quick search to get directions and I'm off to most southern part of Chino Hills.
I arrive to an nearly empty parking with and Nonno's is another take out only pizza place, like Sal's Pizza. Funny, I passed by Nonno's other location in Upland on my way to Sal's and placed it on my list of places to look into.
Silician pizza, with sausage and I asked for four sliced to be just cheese. I liked the crust, with it's nice velvety inside texture and the firm outside. The cheese was plentiful and the sauce was well balanced, though some my think it is on the bland side. But, the sausage was bland and lacked flavor. It was just unseasoned meat. But, I really didn't like the amount of sausage on the pizza. They also had a one sausage piece to slice ratio and that sucked. It made this pizza a very bad value. I mean I might as well go to Little Ceasar's and get their $8 pan pizza. From a local pizzeria I'm expecting a lot more.
Service was ok. I placed a phone order because I didn't want to wait around for the pizza. The guy was friendly on the phone, but clueless when I asked for the four slices to be just cheese. I mean it can't be that tough to leave four slices without any toppings! I mean it won't cost anymore time or actually saves them money. What would be the difference if I asked for half cheese and half sausage? Four more slices would not have sausage! So what's the big deal about having only four slices just cheese?
Overall the pizza was pretty good, not great, but the high price tag and the small amount of toppings on the pizza makes it a very bad value. I won't be back to Nonno's.
