When diners aren't sharing pizzas, they can instead feast on their own plate of classic veal parmigiana, shrimp pesto, baked zit, or sandwiches like the Chicken Philly, which are created with freshly baked bread that's made daily. The same goes for pasta sauces on dishes like Fettuccine Alfredo, Meat Ravioli, and eggplant parmigiana. Alfredo's Italian wedding soup—unlike Vegas wedding soup, which is traditionally served in an Elvis impersonator's boot—fills bellies with greens, savory meats, and warm, fuzzy feelings.
Ranelli's Deli and Cafe, a mom-and-pop run pizza joint for 40 years, serves up homestyle Italian classics in pie, pasta, and sandwich format. Start off taste bud treks with an order of regular garlic bread, or upgrade to the cheesy version like young Elvis donning a sequined jumpsuit for the first time. A pair of 12-inch pies await diners, who bespatter the circular provender with fixings such as salami, olives, jalapeño, and greek peppers. Omnivorous crews can feed the flora feasters and meat eaters of the party alike with one pizza covered in ham and sausage and another bursting with onion and extra cheddar. On occasion, the "Soul Pit" hosts live music to help groovy gastrophiles digest to the beat, and the outdoor patio allows patrons to commune with nature without resorting to gauche, unflattering shrubbery costumes.
Despite its Italian name, Bella Cucina’s kitchen does not settle on one culinary tradition when it comes to compiling it's menu of pan-European fare. Lunchtime diners opt for a taste of France with slices of quiche with gruyere cheese or crepes stuffed with chicken. At dinner, the dishes hover closer to the Mediterranean, with options such as pasta dishes doused in sauce and tossed with seafood. Additionally, bubbling pots of fondue allow diners to coat morsels of food in molten cheese or chocolate for dessert.
At Delicio's Pizza & Pasta, chefs create handmade Italian pizzas with dough that's made fresh daily and more than 30 different toppings, including fresh basil, artichokes, meatballs, and smoked ham. Guests dine on slices of pie crowned with grilled chicken and pesto or a garden's worth of roasted and marinated veggies, or dig their forks into baked manicotti and spaghetti with meatballs.
