The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.

The chefs at Bellino's Italian Restaurant handcraft fresh ingredients into a menu of traditional Italian eats. Steer tiny metal soup gondolas through a bowl of tomato and mussel zuppa di cozze ($9.95), or nosh on an order of bruschetta con gamberi e broccoli, which, like a volcanic eruption on the Italian coast, scatters sautéed shrimp and broccoli across toasted garlic bread ($8.95). Pollo al gorgonzola finds a fowl lounging in a creamy gorgonzola sauce atop a bed of spaghetti ($20.95), and fish, shrimp, clams, and mussels dawdle in the tomato-based soup caciucco ($20.95). Transport yourself to a rustic Italian village with an order of homemade Sicilian-style tiramisu sprinkled with a dusting of cocoa ($6.95).
