pizza in italy

it's actually the opposite - in italy pizza is much more often served at dinner than lunch, which is the largest meal of the day. and the word "oven" in italian is "forno", "fornaio" means "baker". :)

Down home Italian style!

This restaurant is a great throwback to down home Italian style cooking. The kind where the men push back their chairs and unbutton their pants after eating contently. If you are looking for a place that is like eating in Mom's kitchen this is it! Have the stuffed artichoke appetizer - its fabulous!

  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
