So to celebrate Steve's race
(update on the race soon)
and the end to his unhealthy eating fast
we went to
Gloria's Little Italy
I HIGHLY recommend this place
if you're anywhere around Provo that is
I used to go to this place when it was a little whole in the wall on 3rd and 3rd and everyone spoke Italian.
They've now moved to a more convenient (and large) location
on the corner of University Ave and Center Street
but it's still kept it's Italian charm
and Amazing food
(sorry for the sideways pic. Blogger is being weird)
Steve and I both had an amazing dinner there last Saturday
he started out with a salad and the house dressing (Vinegarette)
I started off with the Minestrone soup
The salad was good...but lettuce just can't beat this stuff, no matter how you look at it!
Steve had La Campagnola with Angel Hair.
It was a lovely dish. Fresh and light. Lots of veggies.
yes, I did eat off his plate. I'm prim and proper like that.
check out this culinary masterpiece.
It may look ordinary
but it DEFINITELY wasn't
I was very impressed
You really need to go to Gloria's and order it immediately, it's simply FABULOUS darlings
It's the Salsa Rosata with Penne
Yum Yum yumyumyum
I was a little hesitant to order it at first...
because the menu describes the sauce as a "creamy sauce"
and I don't like heavy pasta
but let me tell you it was perfect
creamy...but not heavy, full of flavor, ahhh
to say the least I recommend it
and this restaurant in general
(Plus the desserts are beautiful. We didn't try any but we're determined to drop in and try some soon!)
Anyway, if you're looking for a night out on the town swing by down town Provo and check this place out.
The food is wonderful
and the ambiance at the restaurant is lovely to boot
You wont regret it!
Love, Steve and Jess
