Martino's authentic Italian menu offers traditional dishes forged from fresh ingredients and swathed in sauce prepared daily. Begin a meal by dunking beer-battered slices of fried zucchini ($5.49) in marinara sauce before corralling house-made meatballs within an edible enclosure of imported Italian spaghetti ($9.95). Pizzas divvy themselves by slice ($2.50 for cheese; $0.50/topping) or fly from the oven as complete saucers ($9.95–$13.95), powered by toppings such as red peppers, pineapple, ground beef, and cheese fusion ($1.75–$2.50/topping). Chefs roll locally sourced chicken cuts in breading before frying them and smothering them in provolone for the chicken parmesan hoagie, served with italian bread and fries ($6.99). Postprandial selections from a battery of 15-20 house-made gelatos sate cravings of all flavors, as long as it's frozen.
In the kitchen at Mario’s Pizza, chefs heap cheese, steak, and sun-dried tomatoes onto oversize New York–style and sicilian pizza crusts. A white pizza covered in ricotta cheese, fresh garlic, and mozzarella reminds taste buds of eating a delicious snowman, and comes in sizes ranging from 10 inches to as large as 19 inches. Baked pasta and sandwiches, such as a philly steak or veal parmigiana, round out the menu.
The speedy chefs at Pescado’s Burritos whip up fresh California-style Mexican fare and prepare handmade guacamole every morning for guests seated in a colorful, relaxed dining room. A variety of marinated meats from land and sea nestle inside white, wheat, or spinach tortillas, creating Mexican classics and house specialties including fish burritos. As customers dine at rustic wooden tables, natural light pours through the floor-to-ceiling glass storefront and illuminates cheery yellow walls.
