Weighing in at almost a pound per slice, Mario's Pizzeria Trattoria's philly-cheesesteak stuffed pizza teems with meat and three cheeses. This is just one of the menu's specialty pizzas, which also include the pizza with nine vegetables and four cheeses and the Chicago Classico, made with sausage and fresh basil. The pizza dough is made fresh daily, as is the tomato sauce that douses pasta dishes.

Diners enjoy their pizzas, pastas, subs, and salads inside or out on the patio tables. They can even cruise through Mario's drive-thru window in Largo if they need a meal to go or a quick olive-oil top-off to keep car engines running smoothly.

Every day from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., the culinary artisans at Zapata's Café build sandwiches, fire flatbreads, and blend fresh smoothies using vibrant, fresh ingredients. The bright space comes alive at lunch time, when friends gather around rustic wooden tables before digging into berry-spinach salads or double-palming hearty pork burritos. To help diners wake up right each day, chefs also put together custom sandwiches and breakfast burritos stocked with veggies and eggs with inspirational messages written in salsa on the side.
