California Seal

From Cali with Love

The beach in California
Portrait of the Lanza family
The Cali dream was born 110 years ago when our great grandfather, Italian immigrant Francesco Lanza, discovered a golden land of agricultural bounty and multicultural cuisine called California. In 2005, the Lanza family brought the dream to Florida when the first Cali opened with a menu inspired by two things: travel and possibilities.
Our story
A few times a year, we pack our reusable cutlery and travel to Cali to eat everything in sight. Our menu is full of our favorite flavors recreated with our own twist and made from fresh, whole, and sustainable ingredients. Pretty much everything on the menu can be customized to your taste.

When are four locations not a chain? When they’re linked by so much more than just the same name. Our restaurants are bound by a purpose - to create a menu that is both nourishing to our people and the planet.
