Mama Lisa's Little Italy
No pizzeria was close enough to deliver pizzas to Lisa Towne’s home. So Lisa did what any pizza-loving person would do: she opened her own pizzeria. As it turns out, other locals were also missing pizza in their lives because the first day her eatery opened, it completely sold out of food by 7 p.m., even though Lisa ordered enough to last an average pizzeria or Paul Bunyon on a diet three days.
Her restaurant continued to grow in popularity due to piping hot Chicago-style pies topped with such ingredients as pesto, sea salt, fresh basil, and housemade meatballs. She also expanded Mama Lisa's Little Italy's menu to include pasta, topped with hearty sauces such as housemade alfredo, and staple breakfast items, such as buttermilk pancakes and housemade biscuits and gravy.
In addition to providing the community with a pizza joint, Lisa often donates gift certificates to her restaurant to local schools and libraries. These reward kids on the honor roll and in reading programs.
