THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Armando's Italian Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Armando’s strip-mall location belies the quality of the food. The somewhat shabby surroundings might make you think that no one in the kitchen cares, but you would be wrong. Try the lasagna and the homemade rolls and salad dressing. The pepperoni pizza comes loaded with the spicy stuff. Families like to slide into the somewhat cramped wooden booths, complete with Chianti bottles dangling from the ceiling overhead, to order complete meals that come with salad and garlic bread. The prices are reasonable, and when you factor in the huge portions, this is one cheap night out. The waitresses are very patient with little ones and the atmosphere is so casual no one will throw you dirty looks for bringing two-year-olds. That being said, taking out pizza, or anything else on the menu, is also an option.
