Whether guests are in the mood for a slice of pizza, a hot sub, or a hearty Italian meal, the chefs at Christopher’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria can match every craving. The eatery also adds a sports bar element to the mix, with daily happy-hour specials that complement the big game better than an in-house marching band.
Beef 'O' Brady’s caters to families and sports fans alike with fresh-grilled eats and draft beers served in a casual dining space featuring wood-paneled walls adorned with sports memorabilia and comfy booth seating. The menu warms stomachs small and large with a collection of Black Angus burgers, 15-inch pizzas baked on a stone hearth, and signature wings served baked or grilled in a variety of two dry rubs and 12 sauces. Twenty-one high-definition TVs continually broadcast live sporting events such as NFL Sunday ticket games indoors while diners can opt to enjoy a meal on the outdoor dining patio. The restaurant also features a private back room for large groups and special events.
Voted best pizza in town by the Orlando Sentinel for seven years in a row, Pizzeria Valdiano unleashes a welcome avalanche of dough, cheese, tomato paste, and freestyle-snowboarding cherry peppers upon the burgundy-boothed slopes of the restaurant’s interior. The pie-centric menu democratically offers a motorcade of non-pie starters such as fried mozzarella ($4.95) and garlic-bread parmigiana ($3.75) to take down those who lack the drive to take a piece of the cheesy disc. Try an artichoke-hearty pizza Fiorentina ($9.50 for 10", $16.95 for 16"), a peppery pizza piccante ($9.50/$16.95), or a pizza stella ($10.95/$17.95) with melted mozzarella, eggplant, and feta cheese.
At Filomena's Pizzeria & Ristorante, chefs decorate signature Brooklyn-style pizzas while a daily bounty of fresh-baked bread snuggles up beside pasta dishes, including stuffed shells and penne alla vodka. The culinary crew embellishes veal, sirloin, and shrimp with fresh vegetables and white-wine sauces, forming a roster of dishes sure to satisfy cravings for Italian classics. Calzones teem with a wide range of ingredients and can be crafted large enough to feed an entire family and their velociraptor.
Tutto Bene Italian Restaurant's legion of pasta professionals dish up a menu of freshly prepared, old-fashioned Italian fare and imported spirits. A savory selection of palate-pleasing lunch specials includes authentic cheese pizzas ($4.50 for two slices, $9.95 for a 14"), chicken parmigiana ($7.95), and lasagna baked to saucy perfection ($7.25). Launch a dinner rocket with a loud crunch of crispy bruschetta ($5.95), or loosen tense garlic knots with a peaceful soak in a marinara bath ($1.75 for three). Diners can twirl forks through the sautéed onions, olives, capers, and anchovies topping a fresh plate of spaghetti alla puttanesca ($10.95), or strap on complimentary snorkels for a palatable plunge into the seafood risotto, which presents a sautéed school of calamari, shrimp, clams, mussels, and marinara sauce ($16.25).
