The chefs at Mimmo's Restaurant whip up New York–style pizzas, hot subs, pasta dishes, and other Italian-American eats. Seven days a week, you can cruise the huge menu, which includes more than 10 types of calzones, 8-inch subs, and daily specials such as homemade spinach ravioli.
Family owned and operated, Italian Delight whips up a massive, multi-faceted menu of savory and fresh pastas, pizzas, and salads for gastrognomes and gastrogiants alike. Dig into dining with an appetizer such as the bruschetta ($6)—ideal for practicing for impending sharing competitions—or sink fangs into the foliage of the Caprese salad ($7.50), a hillock of roasted red peppers, tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella. Pastaholics can shirk table manners and slurp their way through the baked spaghetti ($8.50) or linguine with shrimp sauce ($13.99), spiting a nefarious nanny with each disappearing noodle. The Italian sub ($6.50) makes munchables from a motley crew of ham, salami, and provolone, while the traditional New York–style pizza ($9.50 for a 12-inch, $11.50 for a 16-inch) can be bedecked with toppings ($1 each) such as pepperoni, pineapple, and green peppers.
The creation of a pizza is a thing of beauty. Raw dough crisps into a chewy crust, and shreds of mozzarella cheese melt into rich tomato sauce. That tasty transformation has been happening at Anthony's Italian Pizza every day for 48 years. Pizza isn't the only specialty; the eatery's cooks also layer meats onto hoagies and prepare traditional Italian-style entrees such as veal parmigiana. The restaurant's ambiance is warm and comforting, just like its food. Servers pair meals with a roster of beers and wines—some imported from Italy.
Italian and Middle Eastern dishes share table space at G's Pizza & Grill, a restaurant with a relaxing, family-oriented ambiance. Seated at tables draped with red tablecloths, diners savor specialty pizzas and pasta dishes along with gyros, curry, and kebabs. Some dishes feature a fusion of Italian and Middle Eastern flavors, such as the greek pizza, which comes topped with feta cheese and lamb gyro meat.
Gold Coast Pizza’s cooks take a West Coast approach to their pies, piling toppings on thin, crispy crusts made from expertly aged dough. Modeled after Padington's Pizza in Oregon, this shop names its disks after Pacific people, places, and things, such as the three-meated Lewis and Clark, the Ventura Veggie, or the Mount Rainier, renowned for its 2011 culinary eruption of salami and mushrooms and its 1894 actual eruption of lava and mushrooms. The Crescent City sits under a house blend of cheeses and black olives, and Honolulu Gold shimmers under ham and pineapple bits. Alternatively, an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet during lunch hours allows patrons to enjoy as many slices as possible between business meetings. Gold Coast can seat up to 150 people and features a 62-person banquet room. Self-serve fountain sodas wash down each slice more deliciously than a mouth-bound tributary of the Willamette River.:m]]
