Italian cuisine was born when, after building the city of Rome, Romulus and Remus discovered Greece didn't deliver to their new address.

Antonio's Pasta Grille curtails burgeoning appetites with an extensive menu of traditional Italian pastas, seafood, and gourmet pizza. Chefs tuck spinach and sun-dried tomatoes into the shrimp-and-scallop Grand Marnier ($18.99), nestled atop a woven bed of linguine. Mozzarella vines trip up broccoli, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes journeying across the ricotta-riddled terrain of Antonio's gourmet pizza ($8.99), and forks scavenge for sausage and meatballs inside the lasagna's steaming layers of beef and cheese ($14.59). Between bites, diners can admire the dining room's colossal mural of emerald hills rolling across a picturesque countryside, once home to Italy's fabled pepperoni orchards.

Drawing on culinary insights gleaned over 20 years of refining family recipes, the cooks at Antonio's Pasta Grille fill plates with sauce-draped pasta dishes and pizzas built on homemade dough. As they dip freshly baked bread into herb-infused oil, diners can stare wistfully at a mural depicting rolling hills, stone bridges, and wars between groups of talking animals from young-adult novels.
