If you’re anything like me, you know that some restaurants were just meant to be. Because sometimes, you come across a restaurant that you cannot believe you went so long without. A restaurant with a comfortable, inviting atmosphere, fresh and delicious menu and of course, amazing bread.
One of those restaurants? Mario Fazio’s.
The fact that I have been living within 15 miles of this restaurant for my entire life sickens me. I think about all the fresh-baked garlic bread I’ve been missing and my lip starts to tremble. Then I realize I’d also probably be about 15 pounds overweight. Hmmm, I think it’d still be worth it.
I was first introduced to Mario Fazio’s at the Mister’s cousin’s wedding shower. I was immediately taken its welcoming, fresh atmosphere and as soon as I tasted the food, I knew Mr. Fazio and I were meant to be. Fate brought us together and the buttered garlic bread kept bringing me back (doesn’t it always?).
Marios Fazio’s makes EVERYTHING in their own kitchen and every single dish is homemade.
My favorite part of any meal at Mario Fazio’s is the fresh-from-the-oven garlic bread and Italian SALSA! Chips and dip? NO THANKS! Not when I can enjoy buttery bread with salsa made from fresh tomatoes, onions, olives and other delicious seasonings.
Forgive the poor lighting, I was getting a bit romantic as I sang sweet Italian arias to my bread. Too far? Never.
And if you think the bread looked good, just wait until you see one of my favorite salads in the world.
Mixed greens topped with provolone cheese, walnuts, grapes, strawberries and grilled chicken.
So simple, so refreshing, MINE.
I could eat it every day. And lucky for me, I can!
But alas, I’ll try and keep myself limited to only a few visits every month or so — I’m not sure my hips would welcome the extra jiggle
