Ya know, given that we have young kids, we don't get out much. So when we go out, we want it to count. There are always the "usual" spots that you know are good, but sometimes it's nice to branch out. Sometimes we're pleased, sometimes it's meh. On this particular evening, we were pleased. VERY pleased. I will admit that the ordering process wasn't what we were expecting. Think "Panera Bread" where you walk in and order your food at a counter. However, after ordering, things get more "sit-down" restaurant like. They assign you a table and then your food is brought to you. The menu is large and diverse so we felt a bit under the gun trying to pick whilst in line so they obliged and let us sit down to look over the menu. Once we ordered, the food came out very quickly, but it was certainly NOT fast food quality. It was "straight from Italy" quality. OMFG, it was amazing. We tried Gnocchi Gorgonzola & Noci (Gnocci, gorgonzola, & walnuts) as well as the Calzone Americano. Both were spectacular! So fresh, flavorful, and well done. Honestly, we felt like we were back in Italy. The friendly Italian gentleman (maybe the manager, maybe the owner) treated us incredibly well so that probably enhanced the experience and only made it that much better for two newbies to Parisi. We will most certainly be back to explore more of the menu. Prices were extremely reasonable given the quality received and I would wholeheartedly recommend Parisi to anyone!
We were a party of 7 , arrived at 520pm, they found us a table while we placed our order. 3 got the lasagna, 2 pasta, and 2 shared a Maialona pizza. Ordered a pear& Gorgonzola green salad, a mixed cheese plate, and a mixed meat plate. And glasses of wine, of course. All the food came out of the kitchen within 10 minutes, almost all plates together, so no one really had to wait for the other to begin digging in! Plus, the wait staff had brought baskets of bread, waters, and our wine so we started munching right away. Great service, and everyone loved their meal. I met Simone Parisi about 18 years ago when he had the first smaller location, and have loved their food since then. Hope they stick around for many years to come.
The food here is delicious! The staff is super friendly also they speak Italian and their accents are to die for 😍 fall in love with the staff and the food. The price is a little expensive, but I'm not mad about it. The atmosphere was excellent. They have gluten-free options and they were very helpful!
It was absolutely delicious. The bartender was absolutely gorgeous, and that has nothing to do with it but it is not a bad thing. 🤣😂 I had a Lemoncello Mojito and my partner and I shared the New Yorkese. It was fantastic! Got some chocolates to go. Also a cream puff and a Canolli but those might have been eaten in the car on the way home so no pictures to be had. Let me tell you though, I recommend.
