Recs: Good Mexican & Red Sauce Italian?

Hi. We've moved to the Ontario/Chino area fairly recently, and we're looking for:
1. GOOD Mexican restaurant(s) (have been going to La Paloma in La Verne, but our most recent trip turned out to be extremely disappointing)
2. A good, old-fashioned, red-sauce checked-table kind of neighborhood Italian place in the area.
Thanks in advance, Hounds!

  1. for neighborhood italian I like Cafe Allegro in La Verne, just east of the college campus...good marinara/ bolognese sauce but other choices too. sidewalk dining, though you can't drink outside. also, thread linked below has lots of other recs for dining in that'll see mine for Mexican toward the bottom....definitely not the style, ambiance, or scale of La Paloma (think small, very casual).

    1. Thank you very much, Local!! Excellent recommendations. : )
      I'd also like some recs a little closer to where I live, in South Ontario - Chino Wayne, are you listening? : )
