An open kitchen churns out wood-fired pizzas and fresh-made pastas at this casual Sicilian-American chain.. In Short Decorated with family photos of founders Damian Mandola and Johnny Carrabba, the open dining rooms pack groups of friends and extended families into four- and six-person tables and booths; smaller parties or couples can grab stools at the open kitchen's adjoining bar to watch chefs make dinner. The traditional southern Italian menu offers grill specialties like steak Marsala and fire-roasted chicken breast with sun-dried tomatoes; pasta dishes include fettuccine Alfredo and garlic-sauteed shrimp with linguine.
Great grilled entrees.
Can't order anything but the Chicken Bryan each time I go here! (Have tried the dishes of several other guests and they're all wonderful, but this is my favorite - Chicken Pollo Rosa Maria is also heavenly.) Two chicken breasts topped with sun-dried tomoatoes, a mild, creamy cheese, and then smothered in a lemon sauce. What's not to love?
