Lamppost Pizza understands its target audience. The pizzeria’s tagline, "for those with a taste for great pizza and sports,” beckons to an easy-going crowd, and then the chefs follow through by serving up creative pies with toppings such as jalapeño, pepperoni, avocado, and fresh garlic as diners watch the game. Specialty pizzas include the four-meat, four-veggie The Whole Nine Yards, as well as the artichoke-spangled Pesto Supreme. Sandwiches are served hot or cold, and the appetizer menu includes more wings than the vision board of a penguin.
Lino's Pizzeria & Italian Cuisine recreates the old-world charm of a classic Italian bistro with soft candlelight, a vintage dark-wood dining room, and, of course, the mouthwatering aromas of freshly baked breads and garlic-spiked sauces. Oven-baked pizzas and pastas are among the most popular dishes here, but don't overlook the fresh seafood, veal, and chicken entr?es. And definitely don't fill up on the hand-rolled meatballs; not when there's cr?me br?l?e and stuffed cannoli for dessert.
Numero Uno's menu stomps out stomach-dwelling grumbles with a mélange of pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches. Specialty pizzas such as the Slaughterhouse 5, packed with mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers ($5.95–$16.95), showcase enough sliceable sustenance to feed a group of friends or one knowledge-starved librarian. Patrons can customize their own pies ($4.25+) by loading a Chicago-style pan crust or New York-style thin crust with a choice of more than 20 toppings including fresh basil, roasted red peppers, and Canadian-style bacon. Numero Uno also shakes palates from their stupor with classic Italian fare such as a lasagna made using a recipe from 1973 ($9.95) and a house-made meatball sub ($6.95) made by cooks that have met 38-year-olds.
Linguini, penne, spaghetti, and fettuccini—the chefs at Carolina’s Italian Restaurant have been preparing pasta in its many incarnations for more than three decades. But their time-tested cooking techniques aren't the only reason for the robust flavors in their classic Italian cuisine. Ingredients are delivered five times a week, ensuring that each tomato is as fresh as the day its life coach finally coaxed it off the stem. Quality seafood and meats such as Atlantic salmon and new york steak put a finishing touch on many entrees.
After diners polish off their meals, they can indulge in a dessert such as housemade tiramisu or cannoli drizzled with chocolate syrup. Then, they can lean back and admire the wall murals of Italian countryside and verandas, or watch confused airplanes circle the ceiling's painted blue sky.
