Sunday afternoon the Hubby and I hopped in our car after church and headed to my next target for culinary adventuring... and discovered that the place is closed on Sundays. Denied!
Man, I hate that. I mean, if I was working there, I'd be glad to have a day off and all, but Sunday after church is a great time to be open for lunch, and we enjoy taking our friends out to try some of our new food finds every now and then.
After that disappointment, I was at a loss for a backup plan... so, we went to Panda Express, and decided to try again last night. Thankfully, Bistro di Napoli was open, and it was worth the wait.
Two impressions struck me as we entered the restaurant: sight and scent. The windows were tinted so much that I rather expected the interior of the restaurant to be dark, but instead I found a pleasant, light and bright room, decorated with colorful prints and displays of various Italian food items. The scent - heavenly, rich and garlicky. The staff was very friendly - this is a family owned and operated place, and they know how to make you feel at home.
The menu includes wood-fired oven baked pizzas, some pretty standard fare of soups, appetizers and salads, a good selection of pastas, and a handful of fabulous-sounding main dishes - veal, chicken, shrimp, eggplant, take your pick. Many of them featured mushrooms, and nearly all of them sounded scrumptious, which made it really hard to decide.
