I know the owner of Margies and have known him since I was a baby. He also owns several other joints in town. Margies is still pretty good but not what it was. I use to go to Sardines alot till they got a really bad heath review and got shut down. They had great cheese sticks. I havent been back in a while. My personal favorite and im sure everyone will make fun of me is Olive Garden. Im not much of a meat eater and I dont like when they trick up the alfredo sauce. Just plain jane for me and im happy. I also liked the Italian inn as well but again if they trick up the sauce i dont like it!!

Maybe I'm missing out, but I just can't order pizza at restaurants like this--so many other interesting menu items & Rocco's is just a phone call away!


I don't know - the pizza at Taverna is also interesting, and darn tasty. I love the pear & gorgonzola pizza there.


The pizza at Taverna is done in a very traditional Italian style wood-fired pizza oven, so if you have never had that before, you should check it out. Sometimes they are done in brick ovens as well - those puppies can get up to 600 degrees, I believe, and they produce a crust that you just can't duplicate in any other fashion, unless you build your own.

Rocco's uses a 7000 lb. brick wood-fired oven -- their crust is excellent -- check it out!

Planet ZOLON had a wood fired brick oven too, and their crust was INSANE!

Where is this ROCCO'S?

Located next to Szechuan off Camp Bowie. They only have delivery (to limited zip codes) & take out, but their next-door-neigbhor just moved out and I have my fingers crossed that they'll expand and have dine-in too.

Any recent Fortuna experiences? We've never been there. Love Piola, and tried the re-born Aventino's a couple weeks ago.

None worthy of mentioning...

The chicken canaloni at Zio's by Western Center Blvd. is very good. Check out my favorites at Yelp.com for good eats and where to stay away from -Sorry the Barber.
