Big Italy Restaurant Review

: Imagine a Disney-fied Italian food court, a rollicking three-ring circus of a pizzeria, a classic Italian-American restaurant, and an amore-drenched café where there’s something for everyone, be it a family out for a pepperoni pie or a date-night couple looking for a little Lady and the Tramp romance. Such a “tricolore festa” can be found at Big Italy, an oceanfront eatery comprising a “Pi-zzeria” rolling out scratch-made pizzas and overstuffed subs; “Mama’s Italian Kitchen” for à la carte or family-style favorites like four-layer-high, meaty lasagna, creamy fettuccine carbonara or veal Marsala; and “Café Amarino” with gelato, coffee, pastries (perhaps a mocha espresso torte) and panini. It adds up to plenty of fun as your entire party can be seated at one table and order from any of the venues. Tourists clamor here in high season, but no one seems to mind the wait. Food like this has mass appeal.
