"The problem with eating italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again." - George Miller


  • Good luck finding a parking spot in this hoppin' Italian spot on Valley Mills Drive. And, yes, you will get a ticket if you park next door and walk over (I can personally attest to this). From pizza to lasagna, Baris has all the Italian classics you could want/need at prices that will leave you more than satisfied.

Bella Luna Italian Bistro

  • Bella Luna runs the gamut of classic Italian fare, but at bistro prices. You can get your requisite maniccotti, ravioli, cannelloni, but they also offer more upscale options like Ribeye Marsala, Ribeye Cremora, and Shrimp Tortellini. Appetizers run from mozzarella sticks to mussels marinara.

Poppa Rollo's

  • A great place to take the kids, you can get great pizza, pasta, wings, and beer while they scamper off and play old-school video games or watch classic cartoons and movies. Poppa Rollo's has been doing it since 1969 with seating for up to 500. Their gluten-free pizza is so good that, when Kami ordered it, I didn't know it was a gluten-free crust.

  • Located in the heart of downtown, Portofino's ambiance takes you back to intimate Italian restaurants you see in movies where everyone wears a suit. Wish everyone still wore a suit, if I'm being honest. The bruschetta is incredible and you can't go wrong with the chicken parmigiana or the baked ziti. You won't save room for dessert, but you should go ahead and get it, anyway.
