I've been a fan of paninis since I visited Italy in 2006. Of course, I indulged in various slices of pizza and cups of deli cant gelato, but the mouth-watering and foodie moment occurred when I had a panini for the first time. Once I returned home, my goal was to find a place in San Diego that could make similar paninis. I would like to make them instead of purchase my panini. My ultimate favorite is located in Chula Vista's authentic Italian restaurant, La Bella Pizza Garden. La Bella has been around since 1955. I will use their panini as a baseline, in which I have to transform into a master of paninis.
