Angelo's & Vinci's Ristorante
Mamma mia! Had P.T. Barnum been Italian, this is the type of restaurant he would have created. From the Piazza Fantasia with Christmas lights to the flying Gelardis (high-wire dummies), there's entertainment for everyone. Nevertheless, fun doesn't overwhelm the food. From pizzas with gourmet toppings to hand-stuffed ravioli, calamari, and vegetarian dishes, this Italian fun house promises delicious food and guarantees a great time! (714-879-4022)
Royal Khyber Fine Indian Cuisine
A favorite with Santa Ana's Indian contingency, Royal Khyber offers traditional Moghali and Tandoori fare in a contemporary, elegant setting. In fact, the restaurant has garnered many local and regional honors, including earning the Gold Award from the Southern California Restaurant Writers and being the first Indian restaurant in North America to receive a major newspaper's "Restaurant of the Year" award. House specialties include lobster masala with ajwain pepper, spicy chicken madras with black pepper curry, and mushroom matar khorma with ghee in Moghlai khorma sauce. Sunday brunch and Friday's buffet are popular events. (714-436-1010)
The upscale hotel that houses this restaurant is a frequent home base for well-to-do vacationers. The decor of the signature PCH Grill, seemingly inspired by a California beach party, springs to life with myriad colors, potted palms, and a slew of "beach" oddities. Innovative Pacific Rim-inspired fare is the calling card — dine on sake-marinated black sea bass, wood-fired pizzas, and panko shrimp in mango sauce. At breakfast (buffet or à la carte), the little ones can thrill to the presence of Disney characters. (714-781-3463)
