6/19/11-Illiano's, Middletown, CT

Had a lovely Sunday off from work (finally!) and enjoyed it with Tom, touring a few wineries and then ended up here. This local Italian pizza joint has a few locations throughout the state and seems to be quite popular. When we walked in, a good majority of the tables were full and there was a steady stream of people coming in for takeout. One of the first things we noticed when we sat was that everyone who was coming in for an order for pickup was being served a bite of pizza while waiting--we were no exception, also being brought a small plate to wet our appetites.

We decided on having dinners instead of pizza this time around--Tom went with his favorite--Linguini with clams in a white sauce; I went with my favorite--Veal Parmigiana. Both of our dinners came with small side salads and warm garlic bread. We were both happy with our selections and in typical Italian fashion, there was too much food to finish, so we had leftovers to pack up and bring home to enjoy another day. Overall, a lovely, quick dinner in a welcoming atmosphere with a friendly staff--glad we live close so we can enjoy again!
