First, we went to Buon Appetitto. They had the best marinara sauce it took major restraint not to go overboard on bread prior to our meal. It tasted like a fresh garden, tomatoes, basil and garlic - Yum!
We shared an order of calamari, which was very good. The rings were just as tender as the tentacles, such a treat.
And we shared ravioli stuffed with goat cheese and sundried tomatoes. Excellent.
We paid our tab and then walked down India street about a block until we arrived at Filippi's Pizza Grotto. It hugely popular. We waited about 20 minutes in a single-file line for a table. We were seated and couldn't help but take a photo of the empty wine bottles that hang from the ceiling.
We ordered a small antipasta salad to start. It was huge, but tasty.
and we also shared a combo: lasagna and cheese ravioli with sausage and a meatball.
It was pretty good. Nothing to rave about. I imagine people grew up with this place and that's why it's such a favorite.
Stuffed we headed back to the hotel to rest up before another night on the town.
