Not sure how many have ever been to Tito's but I have only had pizza there and this was quite a few years ago. So when my boyfriend mentioned this new place we should try, opened the former chef at Tito's, well I wasn't sure what to expect. I wasn't in the mood for pizza so I was hoping that the menu would include more, and it did. It's your basic Italian restaurant menu: Chicken Parm, spaghetti, Chick Alfredo...etc. But what made me fall in love with the restaurant was our waitress. She obviously hasn't been on American soil very long. She was very pleasant and very Italian. She made me laugh when I ordered an appetizer of meatballs, and she made a funny face. This puzzled me only because I thought at first she didn't like the meatballs, she shook her head and told me she just didn't like the word meatball, she says, "In Italy there is no word for meat-bul". So, of course, I asked what do you call it in Italy and she say "Polpette". Cool, I actually learned something at dinner! We placed our order of Polpette, and wasn't disappointed, they were excellent. Not very big, but very tasty. A salad came with our entree's and we tried their home-made dressing. Delicious. Next came our meals, hearty portions and the sauces were just bursting with aroma and flavor. I couldn't get over how wonderful this meal was from a place I only expected good pizza. The restaurant was somewhat slow (I'm sure mostly because being very new and the fact we were in for some ice and snow that night) and as we were eating, we could overhear the Italian chatter of the kitchen, took me away from Greenville for just a little while. Once we finished our meals, our very Italian waitress asked if we liked dessert. At first I said no, but then remembered I had read they made their own Connoli filling, well I had to try. Then she also said they had an Italian pastry that was very good, so "yes, I'll one of those too please". MMMMMMMMM....followed every little bite. I could have eaten a dozen of each. But for my figure's sake I didn't. But I will be visiting this little piece of Italy again very soon. Ciao!
My husband and I order their hot wings at least once a week. If you get a 40 piece you can eat 2 to 3 ×s during the week, if you choose to do so. But I will say, ordering this last month has been problematic with the new hires. The firls answering the phones have messed up my orders and waiting for them to fix it took until they closed on a workday to deliver the right order to us. It was pass 12:00 and we had to get up @ 4 am. So mad.... just recently Ordered, told it would take 35- 40 min. An 1 hour and half later called to check on it and the girl who took my order was rude and hung up on me??????? Still loving the wings and like we told the owner when we first found them we would recommend them to our friends to help with business. We kept our promise. So what's up with y'all? ??????
After realizing Park Avenue was private, we joined. So far the benefits of membership far out-weigh the process of joining. Once we decided to try it out we were sorry that we had waited so long! Food was great, I had a steak with a house salad & potato. My date had the daily quiche which was filled with goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes & asparagus with a side of fresh pasta salad. All of their patrons were very nice and seemed to love the place as well. Live music started around 8:30 on the patio where we finished our night off with some live jazz & a piece of, apparently fresh, key lime pie-best either of us had ever had! We will now consider ourselves regulars when we are in town. Cleanliness is apparently a standard.
