Heaps of lasagna, cheese ravioli, and stuffed shells share real estate on the Italian Platter ($11.95), and scrawny forearms struggle to lift the cheesesteak sandwich, which comes piled with thinly sliced steak, onions, mushrooms, and mozzarella ($5.95). Chicken cacciatore sautéed in olive oil, wine, tomatoes, and vegetables, arrives lounging on a bed of pasta that it purchased and assembled itself ($8.95). The all-you-can-eat lunch buffet tantalizes stomachs with an oasis of salad, soup, and pizza ($7.95), and diners who call 20 minutes in advance or send a singing telegram will have their piping hot pies waiting for them upon arrival.
