We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance. From the outside, it looks almost like a fast food restaurant. It is not! When you walk in, the aroma of Italian food surrounds you with happiness. It smells wonderful and taste even better. My husband and I...More

Twisted Italian is an Italian based restaurant that goes outside the scope of traditional Italian. While the restaurant's focus is primarily on traditional Italian food, it also goes where most traditional Italian restaurants do not, which make it a bit Twisted. Examples include a bit of Italian fusion such as the Italian Relleno which put an Italian spin on a Mexican classic. The restaurant also goes outside the scope of Italian with items such as homemade pierogis, another European classic which you are not likely to find in other Italian restaurants. The personality of the restaurant may be best described as a cross between a wine bar and a family restaurant. It would be considered upscale/casual.
