Savarino's Cucina- Food Review

In celebration of Husby's birthday I surprised him to an Italian dinner.
Have any of you heard of Savarino's Cucina? It was featured on the Food Network's Dinners, Drive Inns, and Dives show. This mom-and-pop type of restaurant was simply amazing.

We started the the Eggplant Rollatini. This was rolled in ricotta cheese and marinara sauce. Talk about delicious!

We also tried the Stuffed Artichoke. It had bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, and garlic. We love artichoke but weren't huge fans of this.

For the main dish I had the stuffed Manicotti filled with ricotta cheese. YUM!! The  marinara sauce was AMAZING.

I loved that everything was made fresh.We had a fabulous experience at Savarino's Cucina.
Note: not the healthiest meal but SO tasty.
