Mortony’s, a new Italian restaurant and sports bar, opened in November at the Vista Village site formerly occupied by California Pizza Kitchen, 307 Vista Village Drive.

The restaurant’s owners are Mark and Lisa Derrigo. Mark’s family owned Tony’s restaurants in Carlsbad and Oceanside many years ago, hence the name of their new place.

The eatery offers Italian fare, a daily lunch buffet, and a brunch on Sundays.
