Pacifica Patch wants you to vote for your favorite Italian restaurant that captures the essence of an authentic Italian meal, just like Nonna used to make.
Who cooks the best al dente spaghetti? Who uses the freshest mozzarella on pizza? We want you to tell us.
Our inaugural Best of Patch contest kicks off this week with marinara on our mind and some even on our shirts.
Here's our list of contenders in Pacifica:
Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.
Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey.
