Though “traditional favorites” is one of many sections on Strings Italian Cafe's menu, the label describes a bulk of the eatery’s handcrafted Italian dishes. Under new ownership as of January 2013, the cafe fills raviolis with artichoke hearts, flavor shrimp scampi with white wine and lemon juice, and top one of two specialty pizzas with alfredo sauce and chicken breast. That being said, the café's chefs make room for a few innovative touches within their old-style approach. These include baking lasagna inside onion-garlic pastries and spicing up pasta medleys of chicken, shrimp, and pesto with hints of curry.
Located on a 7-acre plot of land, Visalia Adventure Park carves out ample space for all ages to have fun. Outdoors, the park features a bumper boat pool with a waterfall, an 18-hole miniature golf course, and go-kart tracks for both the family and speedsters. If it's raining or that fire in the clouds becomes too hot, visitors can migrate indoors for arcade playing, laser tagging, and mini bowling.
The seasoned pizza shapers at All Pro Pizza create sizzling pies from fresh ingredients and populate their robust menu with salads, sandwiches, and other pizza sidekicks. Garlic-chicken specialty pizzas arrive topped in white sauce, festooned with grilled chicken, and decorated with chopped garlic to deter creatures of the night thirsting for tomato blood ($18.74/large). The meat combo pizza ($18.74/large) redirects a river of pepperoni, canadian bacon, salami, and italian sausage to cascade into customers' stomach reservoirs. Adorn the oven-baked dough of your appetite's dreams with 21 toppings, half-remembered test-taking anxiety, and sauces such as pesto, barbecue, and nacho cheese ($4.99+). Side dishes such as a buffalo-chicken salad with blue-cheese dressing ($6.99) accompany slices, and sandwiches such as the mozzarella-topped meatball sub ($5.99) attempt to usurp the dominant position of pizza, which spins in place on the tip of the food pyramid.
