Graziano's was THE place to eat in Lisbon, Maine. I could walk there from my house, get a take out pizza. Everyone knew everyone else. We went to school with one another. The kind of place you still think about 23 years after moving away. The first place on the list to eat when you go back to visit.
House of Pizza. It is technically a GREEK restaurant but they do serve Italian food too. Locally owned. My children went to school with their children, we talk about where they are and what they are doing, and their friends.I believe I have eaten there at least once a week since I moved here 23 years ago. That's a whole lotta PIZZA! I recommend this place to all my relocation buyers.
My office is across the street - I watched the changes come within DAYS! The addition of some kind of sun room thingy. I refused to go check it out.
My curiosity got the better of me and I broke down and we went back this week.
There were obvious structural changes, had there been changes in staff as well? Supposedly the menu was the same but what about the the TASTE?
The first question in the door was - 'Would you like to be seated in the SUN ROOM?' Well sure, why not? We were the only ones out there. Check it out...a fireplace, with a fire. My daughter and I as per usual were discussing the menu, what we MIGHT have, when our server arrived and asked 'Pepperoni pizza?' She was STILL HERE!
She ate what remained on her plate like the pro-active healthy thing she is. What I did not document however, was the pizza she ate after the salad. BUT, that IS what all of the weight loss pros say to do. Drink a ton of water or something good for you like the salad BEFORE you start on the stuff you really want to eat so you don't over do. Personally, I start with the fries.
