Chicken panini and Italian Salad were delicious. Their ice tea machine was broken so had to settle for water.

We love Selma's pizza. Our family looks forward to eating pizza when we arrive in San Clemente. We always get extra pizza so we have leftovers to bring to the beach the next day. We also enjoy the wings.

Love the deep dish pizza. It reminds me of my home town Chicago. Good service, lee minds me of a sports bar. Their sandwiches and salads are also tasty.
