According to Yelp, it's Pesto Italian in Mission Valley.

Check out this fun review from Regine A., to get a feel for the restaurant:

"*cue Italian music* ~ Where do I begin? Pesto Italian in Mission Valley is simply delicious! I ordered the prosciutto bianca pizza, as it was recommended by one of the employees. After trying it myself, I'd recommend this pizza too. The ricotta cheese, cherry tomato, arugula, garlic & prosciutto pair so well together. Every bite is packed with flavor... *chef's kiss* I'll definitely come back when I'm in the mood for Italian food again."
