Brodo doesn't want to leave anyone out. It bills itself as a fine-dining restaurant with a casual atmosphere, and the menu bears that out, with dishes ranging from classic comfort food?such as stone-oven pizzas?to nouvelle cuisine, such as free-range chicken with pesto-marinated spaghetti squash.
A spacious lounge and entrance draws in diners and a burnished wooden bar surrounds a brick oven at the center of La Scala Ristorante’s dining room. When the weather permits, a lively outdoor patio regales diners with fresh air and hanging flower baskets, while a sunlit porch provides a secluded spot to sample a variety of traditional Italian pastas, seafood, and hand gestures. Appetizers include delectable choices such as confit lamb chop or la scala crab cakes and grilled salmon whets appetites as an entree.
When the chefs at John's Pizza & Subs? approach batches of pizza dough, they channel the restaurant's three decades of expertise. Across the shop's four locations, specialty pies such as the Bob's Big Mac, whose combination of hamburger, thousand island dressing, and pickles is lauded by the Buffalo Pizza Fest, join made-to-order pizzas crowned with a pepperoni, hot peppers, pineapple, and other toppings. John's Pizza & Subs? is also known for its original chicken-finger sub, as well as other hot and cold subs with unusual names, such as the Godfather, Stinger, italian sausage Nightmare and the ham-and-turkey Hercules, whose more than 5 ounces of meat can sate each of a hydra's heads. Tacos, wraps, and wings help to round out the hearty menu.
It should come as no surprise that pizza is a specialty at JUST PIZZA & Wing Co. The restaurant's cooks infuse specialty crusts with sesame seeds, lemon pepper, and other seasonings, pile on fresh cheese and toppings such as sirloin steak and tiger shrimp, and even bake whole-wheat and gluten-free pies. But contrary to its name, JUST PIZZA & Wing Co.'s menu doesn't end there—non-doughy options include chicken wings in a variety of sauces. Patrons can even explore possible wine pairings on JUST PIZZA & Wing Co.'s website.
Prospero Restaurant chef Frank Provenzo pays homage to his eatery's wizardly namesake by conjuring rustic Italian dishes from local ingredients, fresh veggies, and carefully simmered pasta. Cheeses such as mozzarella and ricotta stuff meaty entrees such as sautéed veal cutlets and bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin. And with the create-your-own pasta option, patrons can choose to douse plates of spaghetti, penne, or other noodles with their choice of sauce.
Bruno's Pizzeria treats its guests to a smorgasbord of tasty Italian-American cuisine, from pizzas covered in specialty toppings such as dandelion and stuffed pepper, to boneless chicken wings and piping hot baked subs. Diners stop in for sit-down feasts of steak-covered pizzas or pepperoni-stuffed calzones, or order catered party buffets of lasagna, rigatoni, and three-bean salads.
