The savory pie slingers at Bella Napoli serve a hearty menu stuffed with circular comestibles, such as calzones, garlic knots, meatballs, and a wide selection of specialty pizzas. Pies start with a solid foundation of fresh-baked dough, available in regular, gluten-free, or whole-wheat varieties, expertly tossed and twirled on the premises with the care of a Faberge-egg juggler. Next, a layer of red or white sauce nestles an array of more than 25 delectable and electable toppings, including such offbeat choices as hot wings, eggplant, and hot cherry peppers ($1.60–$4.25 each). Hearty calzones come stuffed with cheeses, meats, and veggies ($4.26–$12.73), and sides include classic coleslaw ($1.75), fried ravioli ($5.25 for small), and garlic bites–a dietary staple used to drive New England’s most fearsome vampires back to their Harvard classrooms ($4.50 for small).

An unlimited parade of palate-pleasing platters greets diners from Churrascaria Braza's Rodizio prix fixe dinner menu, a tasty Brazilian steakhouse tradition ($29.95 adults, $14.95 children under 12). Fill your digestive Trapper Keeper with loose-leaf lusciousness from the stacked salad bar, or cast a tongue trap to reel in a haul of the peel-and-eat shrimp. When you're sufficiently appetized, a friendly tableside server commences the main protein procession, carefully and continuously slicing as much of the seasoned, slow-roasted, and skewered meats as you desire. The assortment of 12 meats changes nightly, yielding such savory selections as the roasted pork loin, bacon-wrapped filet mignon, or Perna de Carneiro (freshly sliced leg of lamb). When you're nearly full, flip the table's circular dual-sided chip from green to red, which signifies the start of dessert. Hang a sweet fang on the decadent layer cake ($7) or spongy and succulent tres leches cake ($7).

A mural of a peaceful beach is the first thing guests see when they enter Paradise Island Deli & Café. The blue water and slender palm trees helps the Negron family create a laidback, welcoming atmosphere to enjoy classic American and Spanish dishes. The deli staff slices and layers Boar's Head meats across fresh spanish rolls or inside wraps. They also keep a selection of Spanish dishes warm under glass. Combination plates pair pork chops and roasted pork shoulder with traditional sides of rice and pigeon peas. Catering trays of Spanish classics, such as paella made with saffron rice, pork, and chicken, add a worldly touch to parties and meetings. The staff writes the menu with colorful chalk on a blackboard behind the counter in a casual, friendly style reminiscent of children's to-do lists.

Icy rings of chilled shrimp cocktail encircle plates while steamy clams casino amuse appetizers year-round. Specials including salmon florentine delight diners as well as daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner specials. Burgers and pancakes sizzle on a grill as hot as a knight in shining armor who has been waiting in his car for an hour; fryers froth with loads of fish 'n' chips; and pasta, wraps, and salad specials are prepared fresh.

Upon entering Tuscany Ristorante, guests are greeted by the sweeping country landscapes that pepper the bright-yellow walls, evoking summers spent under the Tuscan sun, sipping wine and dancing the tarantella until the INS showed up. The warm interiors paired with crisp white linens and hardwood floors infuse the restaurant with a casual elegance to match its classic, flavorful fare. The chefs whip up rich Tuscan dishes, including hearty pasta; prime, dry-aged steaks; and decadent housemade desserts. Pasta and risotto entrees showcase carb sculptures such as the rich rigatoni boccelli, which, like any marble statue, comes doused in pancetta and light vodka sauce. As guests dine, they can indulge in a bottle of wine plucked from the floor-to-ceiling wine rack that lines the walls with rustic wood planks and elegantly displays hundreds of bottles.
