Italian Cuisine @Il Pizzico
for our Pre-St.-Patty's Day Warm-Up;
because Italians are Irish too!
It doesn't get any better than this!
Approach the restaurant going North on 355, otherwise it is difficult to enter their parking lot. 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 olive spread and 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!
