Authentic Italian Cuisine @ Il Pizzico Zagat 27/30! 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!
