Pro: convenient to Highway I-75
Delicious Zucchini Fries
Con: World’s smallest single serve pizza
Bland tasting food.
We eagerly visited this restaurant to use the Gift Card we had received. We will never return on our own dime.
The menu that appears online is only the dinner menu, although nothing on the website says that. We made our selections from the mouth-watering descriptions online. However at the restaurant we found that only a handful of the items are available at lunch.
We ordered the Tomatoes Caprese appetizer to share. The waiter failed to bring a second plate so we were forced to both eat out of the same plate.
The appetizer itself was disappointing. A lump of mozzarella centered the plate. The heirloom tomatoes were sliced so thinly that they were difficult to pick up with a fork. The entire appetizer reminded me of cotton candy. It disappeared in our mouths at the slightest touch.
My wife’s favorite pizza is the Margherita pizza. She ordered the “individual size” Margherita pizza. She received the smallest individual size pizza we have ever seen. It measured 5 ½ inches across. It was totally lost on the plate.
Thin cracker-style crust was layered with the tomato on the bottom and the mozzarella on top causing everything to slide off the pizza slices. Totally unsatisfying.
We questioned the waiter about the tiny size of the pizza. He told us it was the kids’ size pizza. He also admitted that he forgot to warn us about the small size when we placed our order.
Fortunately the pizza came with a side salad of substantial size. Perhaps the menu should read “salad with a sample-size pizza.”
I ordered the Chicken Parmesan Panini with Zucchini Fries. The Panini was dry and tasteless. The Zucchini Fries were light and delicious!
The driving directions we received were rather vague. Know that this restaurant is at the very far left end of the group of stores, past the supermarket.
My suggestion is to skip this place for lunch. It was nearly empty so perhaps the locals already know that.
Maybe dinner is better, but we won’t visit again to find out.
The much maligned Olive Garden is far better than this place.
As my Italian grandmother would have said, “Che delusione.”
