Award Winning Chef, Alessandro Pirozzi, opened his first restaurant in Orange County, California only six years ago. Through a mix of his charming personality and time-honored family recipes he created an authentic taste of Italy on Pacific Coast Highway. The Corona Del Mar location features some of Alessandro’s handcrafted favorites as well as an extensive wine list, prosciutto & mozzarella bar, 900° baked prime beef, handcrafted pasta and gelato made in-house daily. The culinary journey that began in southern Italy brought Alessandro to southern California where today he shares his family recipes to great acclaim. The Chef of the Year (Riviera Magazine) has Mare Culinary Lounge, Alessa Laguna Beach and Pirozzi Corona Del Mar, for dining, drinks and great memories.

good practice of social distancing with the use of the parking lot, however it would be appreciative if more heaters were used

Service was fantastic and the food was delicious. We actually sit out in the parking lot because we wanted to sit outside because of COVID-19 and we were happy to do it

After asking to sit inside from the make shift outdoor eating area in the alley, we had an amazing meal. And our waiter, James, was fantastic. Excellent service.

What a delightful evening we had sitting at the outside patio with our dear friends. Our hostess was attentive and very helpful. Our server was an absolute delight, she did a lovely job. The meal was outstanding, the pasta freshly made, cooked to perfection and beautiful. We were all very pleased with the quality of our meals and the service.

We were seated 15 minutes after our reservation and once we did order, we waited an extremely long time to get our food; our waiter even poured us a little more wine because of the wait. It was extremely loud and even though it looked like a couple tables had been removed, it didn't appear to have social distancing at all. There were a couple tables set up in the parking lot and they were probably 4-5 feet apart. It wasn't really a very enjoyable experience at all.

Excellent service, great food, authentic, the chef will accommodate any special requests. Became regulars after the 1st time we dinned here. LOVE their Pizza Napoletana, pastas, house made Tiramisu and Limoncello. The owner is in sure to make sure the customer is tended to. Love this place.

We were regular customers prior to the shut down and were disappointed in the service and the food on our recent visit. I understand it is early in the re-opening process and many things have changed. We may try again in the future.

We were there as they made a decision to close to diners inside. They were lovely and made us wonderful food. And served wine to people that came in who they now made takeout food for. Wonderful place that we will continue to support.

Consistently excellent. Wonderful pasta selection. Outstanding cioppino. Terrific service from Jenna. Place can be very busy and noisy—but pleasantly quiet on a Monday evening.

If you like beets, definitely have the yellow beet salad. It was really good and can be shared between two people, especially if you are also having a main dish. The bowtie pasta I had was also delicious. We didn't have pizza but the guys at the next table were raving about how good it tasted. We were able to make reservations at the last minute and they greeted us warmly upon arrival. Recommend as a good neighborhood Italian restaurant.
