With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

The Navarro family, owners of Leaning Tower Pizzeria and Ristorante, has been serving up pizza, calzones, pasta, and sub sandwiches since 1994. Their selection of specialty pies includes the L.T. Special, which comes loaded with eight of their most popular toppings, and the white pizza, which maintains its porcelain complexion by skipping the tomato sauce. Sicilian pizzas boast an extra thick crust and calzones come in three sizes—lunch, dinner, and booey (for two). The menu also includes salads chock full of veggies, italian meats, or bits of cheese shaped like Vespas, as well as made-to-order garlic rolls slathered in olive oil and seasonings and a handful of new gluten-free options.
Owned and operated by three generations of Rosies, Rosie’s A Taste of Italy showcases a menu of authentic Italian dishes crafted with homemade sauces, meats, and dough. Marinara sauce hitches a ride on mouth-bound mozzarella sticks ($6.95), and Rosie’s sausage sandwich smuggles sausage, peppers, and melted cheese across toothy borders ($8.95). Side salads and warm bread flank each pasta entree, such as the chicken alfredo ($13.95) and the sausage pasta doused in pink sauce and mozzarella ($13.95). Like a young stork during its first catering job, eighteen inches of specialty pizza dough deliver artichokes, chicken breast, feta, and alfredo sauce to munching mandibles ($16.95). Finish meals in the casual indoor veranda by delicately nibbling on the mini-cheesecake sampler, a collection of creamy cakes made from only the tiniest cheeses ($4.95).
After growing up in his father's pizzeria, native Italian Pasquale "Pat" Giammarco set out serve pizzas using the secret sauce and simple rules he learned from his father. Each Marco's Pizza location makes its dough fresh each morning and slathers pies with a blend of never-frozen cheeses and a red sauce that incorporates three types of vine-ripened tomatoes and imported spices. Along with its fleet of signature pies, Marco's serves up sizzling and meaty sub sandwiches, as well as spicy wings and platters of sausage and meatballs.
