Little Italy Restaurant and Pizza

American Press Travel News–February 11th–Bob and Barb “On The Road Again” and dining our way along the Treasure Coast of Florida. Under new management, several changes were made including brightening up a formerly dark place. Today, home made, traditional Italian desserts and specialty offerings are part of a 200-hundred item menu. Home made soups, large portions of accompanying pastas, and a wide variety of salads, and specialty items grace the multi-page menus. We jumped into stuffed pepper soups, and a Fagioli accompanied by great garlic knots (rolls). Then out came a delicious cheese pizza, followed by a terrific eggplant and a chicken Parmigiana. We loved the sauces that were less acidic then what we remembered having at more than one or another Italian restaurant. We like that acoustically, the restaurant was not noisy despite the fact that there were many patrons dining there. We did really finish off our meals with two spectacular made in house desserts: Tiramasu beyond belief in taste and Tur Tofo, an Italian ball of ice creams covered in dark chocolate. Frankly, two of the best desserts I’ve had in a long time. Located off of NW St.Lucie  Blvd. Opening soon is their new deli, too!

APtravelnews-Nov. 19th, Maggie Valley, N.C.-Nothing makes a visit to an area your not familiar with, more familiar and friendly than a great local, Mama Leoni type restaurant. Frankie’s is just that; a terrific mama’s type (homemade with love by mama) restaurant.

With friendly folk all around, even his Honor the Mayor of Waynesville and his wife as well as local successful business folks too, how can you have a bad experience, especially when the food was “killer” great! We also tried one of our table-mates Eggplant dish and after finishing our meal (we only left damp plates) we dove into desserts. Cheesecake rocked us with a topping of delicious strawberries that totally complimented the New York style creamy and tasty cake!

Frankie’s is located at 1037 Soco Rd. Maggie Valley–828-926-5216

Brian Curry and Nicole Boulete, owners of the Corner Grill put in considerable work and efforts to cleanup to develop their new business! Food, cleanliness and decor was terrific!!!!

APtravelnews-Port St. Lucie, FL-February 18th,–Bob and Barb “Stopping to Smell the Roses” at The Corner Grill.  The Corner Grill  Restaurant, located in the Bridge Plaza just off Port St Lucie, Blvd.  1068 SE Port St Lucie to be exact, is owned and operated by Nicole Boulete and Brian Curry. This is no run-of-the-mill Grill! Serving breakfast and lunch, the Corner Grill puts out some mighty large and tasty meals. We first met the folks here when we stopped for breakfast last week. Barb said that she was very happy with her egg dish, and I agreed with my cheese omelet, that everything tasted fresh and there was no greasiness to anything. We decided to go back and have lunch today! We were very glad we did. Our positive suspicions were correct; this is no ordinary food emporium! What we ate: We started with Hidden Shrimp. Perfect shrimp covered en cruet by delicious melted mozzarella cheese that also covered a tasty addition of spinach. We left nothing over!! We tried a Mac and Cheese Burger, yep! Mac and cheese on top of a perfectly cooked to our liking, burger with perfectly done fresh grilled bacon strips-WOWSER!!! We also tried an impressive pork sandwich with three different cuts of pork, pickles, more bacon, served with a cucumber salad. So big was this delicious dish that we could only eat half of it (yep, doggy/people bag is in our fridge now for today’s lunch too)  although if my stomach was as big as my eyes it would all have gone down, right then!

Roomy and airy, decorated with all manner of marine and tropical metal fish and palm tree scenes, the place was very relaxing and our waitress was very nice and friendly- yes, we even left her a decent tip, for a change in exchange for great service! The Corner Grill is open now for two months and from Monday to Saturday from 7am–3pm and on Sunday from 7am to 2 pm. Ask about their special Friday breakfast which also includes coffee! Give a call 772-249-0087, although, just stopping in will always get you a table too! They serve dishes such as Poquine  (French Fries with a gravy and cheese curds, yes ate that too) and other French Canadian specialties!P1030296 P1030299
