  1. Aruffo's in Claremont Village, just a couple of blocks from the campus, for Italian. Pizza n' Such is also good for pizza 'n beer. Go to Bert and Rocky's for desert (ice cream and chocolate).

    1. re: heckonwheels

      The complimentary bread is out of this world. A big boule of crusty on the outside, hot and soft on the inside bread, stuffed with chunks of tomatoes and herbs. I go just for that, even though I prefer the food at Tutti Mangia. There's a tapas bar hidden in the village, but my favorite restaurant is Yianni's for their Greek lamb shank-fall off the bone delicious. Their avoglemono soup is also lovely, and last time I went they were still serving free sherry and baklava for dessert.

    2. Walk around Claremont Village, lots of places to check out. For BBQ, Joey's on Foothill, just past Central, which is just over the line from Claremont in Upland. On the same stretch of Foothill as Joey's is Buffalo Inn, burgers, a bunch of beers on tap.
