San Diego Restaurant Reviews

 D’Lish California Bistro (Chula Vista – Terra Nova Plaza)

By Jeanne Bellezzo

It only takes a bite or two of a D’Lish woodfired pizza to realize that this restaurant truly lives up to its name.

Specializing in pizza, pasta and salad, this family-friendly, bistro-style restaurant offers plenty of fresh, tasty options, and portions generous enough to share

The bruschetta appetizer is a house favorite, with homemade old-world garlic bread grilled topped with tomato, garlic and parmesan.

The shrimp scampi delivers nearly a dozen tender, good-sized shrimp delicately sautéed in a light, slightly spicy broth. Rather than just drowning it in garlic and butter, D’Lish flavors it scampi with spices and Sauterne wine, and the result is delicious.

Garlic mushrooms, calamari, mozzarella sticks and buffalo wings round out the appetizer menu.Salads, offered in full and half orders, are meals in themselves.

 


 

Fresh is the key word here – the greens, vegetables and toppings are crisp and colorful, and all of the dressings are made fresh daily.

Go international with the Greek, Thai, Chinese or Chipotle chicken salads, or the excellent Mediterranean, packed with artichoke hearts, roma tomatoes, kalamata olives and feta cheese crowned with slices of tender, juicy chicken.

All salads come with freshly baked breadsticks. Even the half-size salads are large enough for a meal, or perfect for two to share while waiting for another entrée. Family-size salads can be ordered for takeout only.

D’Lish offers more than a dozen California-style woodfired pizzas, available in regular (10”) and the carryout-only XL (16”). Pizzas are fresh, preservative-free and well-seasoned with a light, crispy crust. There’s a combo to suit every taste.

The Fire Roasted Vegetable, topped with fresh eggplant, zucchini, squash, bell pepper, red, onions, broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes, provides your five-a-day and then some. Those who like their pizzas with meat have plenty of choices, including pepperoni, Greek, BBQ or Thai chicken, a seafood mix and the Meatzilla, a meat-fest of pepperoni, Italian and Cajun sausages, Canadian bacon and meatballs topped with red onions, mushrooms, garlic and cheese.

For pizza purists, there’s the traditional cheese-and-tomato Margherita, or The Works, with sausage, pepperoni and the usual pizza vegetables. Can’t decide? Try the Four Seasons, divided into quarters: wild mushrooms; smoky Canadian bacon with fontina; tomato with mozzarella; and shrimp in garlic butter with mozzarella. Many of the pizzas also are available as calzones.

D’Lish’s homemade pastas are a d’light, with a fusion of innovative flavors and preservative-free sauces made fresh daily. There are more than 20 pasta dishes to choose from, from classic spaghetti and meatballs to salmon asparagus fettuccine, wild mushroom linguine and fire-roasted veggie pasta with pesto.

 

House favorites include the Chicken Fantasia Fettuccine, chicken breast sautéed with garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach in a light marinara cream sauce topped with kalamata olives and feta cheese, and the Tequila Chicken Fettuccine, which blends spinach fettuccine with sautéed chicken breast, bell peppers and red onions in a light tequila-jalapeño sauce. Dive into the Seafood Cioppino, another popular choice with shrimp, scallops, calamari, salmon, mussels and clams in a seafood broth over angel hair pasta. Catering-size pastas serve up to seven and are available for takeout.

Creative sandwich selections offer many of pizzas and pasta options served on foccacia bread or a grilled pizza wrap, as well as charbroiled ½ pound Black Angus burgers. Sandwiches come with bistro fries

Our only complaint about D’Lish is that there are too many appealing choices. Our recommendation: Order a salad, pizza and pasta dish, try some of each, and save the leftovers for later. Prices are reasonable, with most salads and regular-size pizzas under $10 and pastas $10-15. Lunch specials, served daily until 4 p.m., are under $8 and include select pizzas and pastas.

 

D’Lish is open from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Reservations are not necessary. Plenty of parking is available in the Terra Nova Plaza parking lot. Take-out is available. Visa and MasterCard accepted.
