Joe Rombi's La Piccola Casa Restaurant Review

: Don’t be fooled by La Piccola Casa. This little Victorian house a few blocks from the beach puts out big Italian hospitality and flavors. It’s a frequent stop for business people who like the quick service and home-style Italian dishes. Pizzas, four of which are vegetarian, have crispy, yeasty crusts. In fact, vegetarians can have a field day here. In addition to the pizzas, vegetarian panini, pastas and salads abound. Order at the counter and enjoy one of the cute rooms of the "house," or sit outside and watch the world go by with a beer or glass of wine. Either way, you’ll be warmly welcomed.
