Italian cuisine at Il Pizzico.

Zagat 27/30!

It doesn't get any better than this!

Photo

Approach the restaurant going North on 355, otherwise it is difficult to enter their parking lot, so turn around and come north on 355. Turn right just before the Exxon station on the corner of W. Gude Dr.

Dinners range in price from ~$15-$30+ for a plate and it is traditional Italian (not American so no Pizza or Lasagna).

Everybody loves Italian food, right? (or Guido breaks their legs)

They have anti-vampire pasta dishes along with wonderful doses of anti-vampire garlic bread!

Wine is on your own, but we can team up and get a bottle! We'll show them.

OK, and now for the diet-wrecking pictures!

    May 28, 2013

    • Dianne G.

      They will only write individual checks for up to 8 people and I don't want to fool around with that kind of money.

  • Dianne G.

    Yes, I ate their signature dish and almost cried it was so good!
