Ive wanted to eat here since moving to Shelby Twp.
What took me so long?
Well honestly it looks pricey, yes it does, so I looked on line for the menu, the web site has been under construction for months.
So I stopped in once for a carryout menu. Got it home & the print/fonte were so small I still had no idea how much an entree would set me back.
So finally my chiropractors office manger & I discuss multiple things , which lead to hear talking about her "All Time Favorite Restaurant" Piccirilli's
So 12-20-13 I called the bride from work & said you've got a date at 6pm.
She asked how to dress, I said "Snappy/Casual will work"
Picked her up and we arrived at Piccirillis at 5:50
A SUPER Charming hostess sat us in Natalie's section , as Jan told us to request her.
Natalie enthusiastically arrived on the scene & introduced herself & inquired was it our first time & who refereed her to us?
My bride always orders a chicken dish & tonight ordered a lemon chicken pollo with capers & artichokes/mushrooms & it included a soup/salad & a large side of pasta
She remarked , this is my new favorite dish & restaurant!
I inquired about the rolatta, which my friend JAN recommended .
Well Natalie who come to find out if married to the chef & is the owners daughter in law, knew rolatta like the back of her hand
It is sheets of pasta, covered in cheese ,ricotta & mozzarella, spinach & red sauce, then rolled & cut into 1-2 inch strips like a jelly roll & served on a plate with more sauce.
It was fabulous!
And such a comfort food choice on a cold rainy/snowy night.
I upgraded my salad to an anti pasto, which is surprisingly not on the menu, but Natalie made it happen anyways . [ $5 upcharge ]
Entree's range from $11 - $18 for a majority of them, plus some pricier steak- fish options.
