The first pie Nick-N-Willy's Pizza's chefs ever baked came out of an oven in Boulder, Colorado, but its menu travels the globe as the franchise has traveled around the United States. Classic Italian combinations abound, of course, but there's also the Greek-influenced, feta-topped Aegean pizza, the Canadian Chicken Club, and even a barbecue chicken variety. The fresh, creative combinations can also be freshly made and ready for home ovens via a take-and-bake option.
All of Spumoni's homey restaurants brim with Old World ambience and warm zephyrs laden with the aromas of a broad selection of mouthwatering pastas and pizzas. Enjoy extravagant culinary indulgence not seen since the reign of Emperor Boyardee with a delectable antipasti dish, such as the Veggie Tower & Prosciutto, a shuffled deck of tomatoes, eggplant, fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, and succulent Parma prosciutto ($9.95). For a bigger bite, wrap mouth muscles around the Gnocchi Fradiavola, piquant shrimp and white wine cradling tender spud-infused pasta as beautiful as a litter of Mr. Potato Heads ($16.95). The Herculean array of pizzas, such as the Capricciosa, studded with artichoke, ham, mushroom, and mozzarella ($17.95/12" pie), goes down much easier after a few glasses of muscle-loosening wines, including Sangiovese ($6/glass) and Moretti ($5/glass).Though this Groupon does not cover the $2.50 charge, Spumoni's expedient food runners deliver to homes, businesses, and Muppet-infested trashcans.
The black-and-white décor at Prizzi’s pops with red accents, from the modern heat lamps hanging by the kitchen to the cherry-red aprons of the friendly wait staff. White tablecloths bear dishes such as lunch paninis and oven-baked pizzas in thin crust or deep dish. Forks twirl steaming noodles alongside steak and seafood immersed in savory wine sauces. After sipping a brew and noshing fried starters at the smooth wooden bar, patrons can tackle gelato scoops on the outdoor patio to achieve the chilled relaxation that usually accompanies a nap on a living-room sofa carved out of ice.
The masters of Mediterranean comestible crafting at Victorio's Ristorante construct a menu brimming with freshly prepared Old-World eats to provide a dining experience akin to crashing an Italian family's Sunday dinner. Commence table chatter over an antipasto salad ($6.95 small, $11.95 large), a pre-meal heaping of assorted cold cuts and mozzarella cheese floating atop a ripe divan of iceberg lettuce. For a delicious exhibition of wild eatables in their natural habitat, order the chicken fiorentino and watch as angel-hair pasta wraps serpentine noodles around helpless, succulent morsels of chicken breast and freshly steamed spinach sautéed in garlic and lemon juice ($9.25). Alternately, ravenous herbivores hungry enough to tunnel directly to a neighbor’s garden will revel in the vegetarian lasagna, a traditional dish featuring ricotta cheese, spinach, and feta lying on bunk beds of layered pasta and swathed in an encompassing blanket of marinara sauce and melted mozzarella ($8.75). Feed an entire table of family members or teenage turtles with one of eight available pizzas, including the Victorio's special ($13.20 for 10", $17.70 for 14"), a pie that's been dragged through the meat garden and vegetable factory and served with anchovies upon request. Instead of spiking tableware and performing an elaborate end-zone dance, cap off meals with a slice of homemade tiramisu ($4.95) and a double shot of cappuccino ($3.50).
