I live in the area and eat at Mad Italian several times a month. The place is a family run business and looks the same as it did in the 1970's but food is always good, they have the best baked lasagna around.

The service by Pammi was wonderful! The food was very good. I ordered a Greek shrimp dish and the other person ordered the Gyro dinner. Both were great! The atmosphere was unique and appealing. The location was very close to where we stayed.

I was at a golf tournament in Petersburg and ate at the Mad Italian. I had Pizza which was not very good. They say they make their own dough for the crust. That was the worst part. Maybe they should buy pre made dough. My wife had the stuffed mushrooms and said they were excellent. The servers were nice and... More
